Sports Massage Demonstration: Psoas Muscle for Back, Butt and Leg Pain, Athletic Tune-Up Austin

In this video, sports massage therapist, Ron Vaughn, explains why a tight psoas muscle can lead to pain or discomfort in the lower back, butt, legs, thighs, and core muscles. He demonstrates a unique technique for relaxing the psoas muscle and provides instruction that other therapists may find useful. The psoas muscle is a large part of the hip flexors muscle group and is used every time we walk, run, sit, etc.

Ron graduated in 1997 from Austin Schools of Massage in Austin, TX, and also has a Bachelor's degree in Exercise & Sports Science from Southwest Texas State University (a.k.a. Texas State University of San Marcos).
Ron's knowledge of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, health & fitness and his experience in athletic training, sports & recreation give him a unique style of sports massage. Ron uses Swedish massage, hydrotherapy, deep tissue, Myofascial release, and trigger point, (ROM) range of motion, stretching, and strength exercises to correct soft tissue dysfunction. Overuse of injured muscles may often create problems and imbalances in the soft tissues, which may become chronic if ignored.

Emotions is good, but don't let your feelings come into play. That's when
you suffer from your heart. Distinguish between emotions and feelings.

This is a great video, love your delivery!

My mind and heart work together. Emotions from the heart, it's more than a

Author stat2k ( ago)
No it's your mind, not your heart as you think. Heart is always related to
mental pain, it's not healthy. Passion should be mind related, not heart
related. I assume that's how it was with Tupac.

Author bigchris3121 ( ago)
His conversations were fueled by passion, the ones i've seen anyways. Im
into everything with my heart, keeps me goin strong.

Author stat2k ( ago)
He prepared everything. He was educated, read about everything that he
spoke of. You can't be into everything with your heart, otherwise youll
suffer a heart attack at 40.

Author bigchris3121 ( ago)
Tupac spoke fluidly because it was from his heart and flowed.

I do massage groin strain in association with manipulation of the legs, or
leg rotation internal sense and external standing direction, turning left
at the foot rotation, and lifting his foot in length. For only I can pay
attention to your massage, but do not understand what I hear in English.

One of the best videos on the subject. Thank you.

Are you jealous?

Author shane hamilton ( ago)
weakness/balance is prob more of a nerve issue if only on one side or
something more serious if on both sides. Either way go to a physical
therapist and get it checked out:-)

Author stat2k ( ago)
I didn't say Tupac due to his lyrics, I said it because he always talked
fluid in his interviews without an "hmmm", "eeehh". You know why? Because
he prepared what he was going to say line by line. So don't talk lyrical
master here. As far as my ass goes, I'm not sure if you're really
interested in it: I just blasted a loud and smelly fart out of my asshole
into the big wide world.

Author stat2k ( ago)
Calm down, not everybody can be like Tupac.

Ron, that was very helpful; as I am having pain on my left side, pain in
Lft buttock, goes down entire left left leg to foot; hurts to lift my left
leg up, chiro told me my pelvis was off??how much? didn't say. I am hoping
i can get a good LMT to work on me as you have demonstrated. thanks!!

He is clearly a good doctor, but he seems to lack confidence. Maybe he
thought she was cute? I don't know.

Author 001qas ( ago)
He is uncomfortable so it makes her uncomfortable.

Author nachiangmai1 ( ago)
Ron. You are great. I learn a lot and keep watching your video. Creative.

My classmates laughed when I told them I was going to get shredded applying
Moro Muscle Ripper, but then I showed them the results. Google Moro Muscle
Ripper to see their reaction.

Author nixter206 ( ago)
Good techniques. Pretty thorough with the muscle groups and tendons.
Obviously, not a public speaker, but I like the effort. Working the ITBand
also helps relieving knee problems, allowing the psoas to relax, if
overworked. Thanx for the demonstration vid.

Kelly Starrett is about the definition of relaxed professionalism. Not
hating on this guy, I would be awkward as shit doing this!!

Author invizible flawz ( ago)
Knows his stuff for sure, but I think he's a little too worried about the
vagina gobbling up his finger and doesn't speak with enough confidence. Him
trying to make the video less awkward ended up making it more awkward lmao.

Author Ken McKean ( ago)
Hi Ron and Kate. Really liked your video. If I was making a video like
this, I would be the same so can relate and learn from your way of
instructing. Great stuff Ron. I'll be watching more of your vids :)

Author peteyinjersey ( ago)
I love the comment "It's like deboning a chicken" LOL....laughed so hard at
that comment cause it was unexpected while watching an instructional video.

Ron, I get a pain in the area near the groin on the inner side of the hip
joint when I pull my knee towards the chest.It does not pain when I press
that area. The pain is also when I attempt a lunge where the action is
similar to pulling the knee towards the chest. It does not pain when I run.
Please advise a remedy.

Author jstacitizen ( ago)
No offense, but objective measures of tight/restricted muscles are
important. Too many clients are told by massage therapists, "this is tight"
and "that is tight" without any objective testing. Clients should be able
to measure improvement with simple tests and see the improvement. Your
style is fun, and if it works, good for you. Add some objective tests. gd
