Lower Back Pain

Can a tight psoas lead to back pain?

In a previous article, I mentioned that back pain is one of the primary reasons for visiting your doctor. The pain is either a constant dull throbbing or a sharp pointed pain, and in a desperate attempt to resolve the issue, you trek all the way to your doctor... but what if you could take control and do something to feel better?
A major contributor to lower back pain is a tight psoas muscle, or rather group of muscles. The psoas group attach at the lumbar spine, run through the pelvis and then connect on the inside of the femur bone.
