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.

Was wondering,what would u think is the cause/treatment for nerve pain in

It is excellent. It is exactly where is tight like a piece of wood on my
left leg. I was told for $$$$$ that my left hip is less mobile by
Feldenkrais therapists taugt by Moshe Feldenkrais himself. They have no
idea how your body is put together. I do not know how to find someone in
San Francisco. Really appreciated you putting up the video. Liana

Psyche, you are too far posterior to work the iliopsoas attachment. The
conjoined iliacus and psoas tendon attached to the lesser trochanter of the
femur, which is located medial of anterior thigh and quite deep, and there
on the posterior thigh you are not near it. Working higher, you are
endangering the fragile inguinal ligament at the juncture of abdomen and

No personal insult intended, but your video may be relied upon by students,
or those who want to massage a loved one, and you are providing wrong
information. You should refer to your anatomy textbooks, then redo the
video, correcting your glaring mistakes.

Author Leon Stroman (7 months)
Great video and very informative. Know some releases but have never
massaged in the fold area. Massaging and flexing the ligament is especially
helpful. Thanx

Excellent demo/discussion. unfortunately many massage therapists do not
adequately cover psoas, obturators, quads & hamstrings. I had low back
pain for months and had a massage by a therapist working at a major ski
area whose obvious focus was lower body work. Following her session which
included psoas release plus streatching & massage of obturators, quads &
hamstrings, I was amazed how good my back felt. You are an excellent mentor
for our develping massage therapists. Thank you for your good work and

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.
