How is psoas syndrome treated?
Psoas syndrome is best treated with physical exercises. These are often demonstrated by a doctor or physical therapist in the outpatient office and done at home.
These exercises will include active and passive spine, hip joints, and psoas muscles manipulation and stretching. Exercises at home include stretching and lower-impact dynamic exercises “closed chain” designed to stretch and strengthen the psoas muscle and allow the body to repair the injury. It is very important that these be done only with guidance of your doctor so that you do not further injure your psoas or other muscles. Additional treatments may include osteopathic manipulative treatment, ultrasound, and rarely, injections to muscle or associated tendon structures.
