Today, I’m going to share the best stretch for your psoas muscle. 

The psoas muscle connects the upper part of your body with the lower part. A tight psoas muscle can lead to low back pain, poor posture, and problems with the hips. 

Problems with the psoas muscle can make it difficult to:
• Get out of bed 
• Stand from a seated position
• Walk and run 
• Have good posture 
• Keep a low back curve 
• Climb stairs 

When the psoas is too tight, it affects a lot of other muscles, and those muscles start to compensate. 

Typically, a person will have a tighter psoas muscle on one side more than the other side. It’s very important to fix that and keep the psoas symmetrical. 

This simple psoas stretch that I’m going to show you will also help you strengthen and stabilize this muscle. I think it’s going to give you a lot of relief. 

Over the course of two to three weeks of doing this stretch, you’ll find that when you walk, your pelvis, hips, and gait are more free and open. You’ll also notice that your low back pain is much better, your hips are less tight, and your low back curve is in a good position.
