According to Trail
Guide to the Body: "The iliacus and psoas major,
together called the iliopsoas, are major hip flexors.
The long, slender psoas major is located deep to the
abdominal contents and stretches from the lumbar vertebrae
to the lesser trochanter. The stocky iliacus is located
deep to the abdomen in the iliac fossa."
|Because of the location of these muscles, they
are hard to access. This is where relaxing on the
Sacro Wedgy® has great benefit. With the sacrum
in a neutral, elevated position, the hips are now
slightly suspended and free to relax. As the body
weight now has a slight natural traction effect,
these muscles stand a much better chance of relaxing
and eventually releasing and rebalancing. Often
when the psoas is too tight and short on one side
it will begin pulling on the spinal column in the
lumbar, as that is where it attaches.
Once that torquing begins, there will
be names given to the symptoms this tightness creates.
A therapist can now access the psoas much easier by
pulsing it from the insertion point or top of the thigh
as opposed to trying to palpate internally. The iliacus
and psoas attach in the same area so stretching one
point stretches both muscles. Gravity will eventually
do most of the work by simply allowing the body to relax.
Although it is important to relax the tight side of
the body it is of equal importance that the weak side
of the body is given even more attention. For instance
if one leg drags forward slower that the other side
and since the psoas is responsible for picking up the
leg, that would be the weaker side and the best way
to strengthen it is our series of isometrics for 2 or
3 weeks. Relax the shorter strong side, strengthen the
longer weak side. The short psoas pulls the hip higher
giving the ilusion of a short leg when it may be a higher
hip. A snowball effect has really been created when
one muscle effects the balance of another.
