I've been seeing a LOT of tight psoas muscles lately! This muscle attaches to your lower spine and to your thigh bone. If it's tight (sitting too much?) it pulls your lower back. It's ONE of the common causes of lower back pain! If you can stretch this regularly then your lower back may feel a lot better! (makes your tummy look a bit flatter too.) ;)
3 poses to help the Psoas. When the psoas muscle becomes tight from injuries, poor posture, sitting for a fair amount of time or even stress, it can alter how the pelvis, lumbar, thoracic and even cervical vertebrae function and can typically lead to pain down the front of the thigh and along the lower to mid spinal column.
