Iliopsoas tendonitis is the inflammation of one of the hip flexors. If
you’ve been diagnosed with this condition, a sports medicine specialist
may recommend physical therapy. Watch this featured video for a demonstration
of the stretches your physical therapist may instruct you to do.
The personal trainer in this video explains three stretches that are meant
to be performed consecutively. Kneel down with your calves flat on the
floor and your hands on your hips. Bring the affected leg forward so that
this foot is flat on the floor. Gently lean forward, hold the stretch
for two seconds, and then shift your weight back again. The following
two stretches are variations on the first.
Comprehensive sports medicine services are available in The Woodlands at
The Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Centers. If you
have tendonitis or a similar condition, you can call (281) 362-0006 to request an appointment for physical therapy.
