Hip flexors feel tight? Before you start releasing or stretching the psoas, it's important to know the difference between a short psoas and a weak psoas. Check the two tests out above. Keep in mind...a short psoas could also test weak. Knowing the difference will help drive your next step.
-
In the video on the left, πŸ‘ˆπŸ½ Dr. Salinas takes Dr. Glidden through the Thomas test. The left knee is maximally flexed to the chest to reduce lumbar lordosis for a true test of length in the opposite leg. Watch Dr. Salinas as he points out the position of the femur to the table, and the tibia to the femur. Check the length relationship throughout the extended limb. If the femur does not remain on the table, psoas may be the culprit. If the knee remains extended and 90 degrees of knee flexion is not met (as seen above with Dr. Glidden) rectus femoris is likely short/tight. Any external rotation observed at the hip can indicate TFL/ITB tightness.
-
In the video on the right, πŸ‘‰πŸ½ psoas is tested for strength. The tested limb is placed in hip flexion, slight abduction, and external rotation (with full knee extension). Light pressure is placed down and out, with @chrischirofit instructed to resist the pressure.
-
Why is this important? Psoas acts not only as a "hip flexor", but a SPINAL STABILIZER. Releasing may cause more harm than good. Test, treat, then retest! Videos πŸŽ₯ on how to release/activate to follow! And as always, keep moving! #formandfunctionacademy #parkavenuespine #assessment #muscle #trainer #mobility #movement #movementprep #psoas #hipflexors #muscletesting #fitfam #educate #train #hips #movement

Today my practice included some hip opening yin yoga at home..... and that's it. .
.
I used to push myself to workout hard daily...I never knew how to take a rest day. As I learn to live in my body I'm getting better at listening to what it needs on any given day. After an active weekend, it felt soooo good to slow down, stretch and breathe. πŸ™πŸ½
