Stretching for Pain Relief - The Psoas Muscles

Posted by Judith Winer on

  Iliopsoas - Trigger Point Anatomy    Stretching the Psoas Muscles The psoas major and iliacus are considered part of the posterior abdominal wall because of their position and cushioning role for the abdominal viscera. However, based on their action of flexing the hip joint, it would also be relevant to place them with the hip muscles. Note that some upper fibers of the psoas major may insert by a long tendon into the iliopubic eminence to form the psoas minor, which has little function and is absent in about 40% of people.     Trigger Points Trigger points in these...

Trigger Point Therapy - Treating Pectineus

Posted by Jane Ziegler on

   Treating Trigger Points - Hip Adductors / Pectineus   Pectineus trigger points are a common cause of groin pain, and often overlooked The pectineus is sandwiched between the psoas major and the adductor longus. Pain from trigger points in this muscle is typically felt deeply in the groin as a sharp pain within the femoral triangle. As with the adductor muscle group, the pain is also sometimes felt in the joint itself.   Pectineus Trigger Points - Typically refer a sharp pain felt deeply in the groin   Origin Pecten of pubis, between iliopubic (iliopectineal) eminence and pubic tubercle....

Trigger Point Therapy - Transversus Abdominis

Posted by Jane Ziegler on

  Abdominal Pain and Trigger Points - Overview     All abdominal muscles work on a moment-to-moment basis as we move, providing the tension required to translate forces from the lower limbs to the upper limbs.    Transversus Abdominis - Common Trigger Point Sites     The transversus abdominis is the deepest of these muscles, and each one (right and left) wraps up the organs horizontally. Transversus abdominis fascial attachments include the lumbar vertebrae, ribcage, iliac crest, and inguinal ligament. The muscle also connects directly into the linea alba, furnishing a link between the xiphoid process, pyramidalis, and pubic bone....

Trigger Point Therapy - Bilateral Groin Pain

Posted by Julian Knight on

Dani Marks demonstrates the "Squat Stretch"     Groin pain is typically caused by a muscle, tendon or ligament strain, particularly in athletes who play sports such as hockey, soccer and football Groin pain can start immediately following an injury or trauma, or it may develop gradually over a period of weeks or even months. Because of this slow onset of pain, the condition is often ignored for period of time, during which the underlying cause may be made worse.  Although not as common, groin pain can also be caused by a hernia, fracture, bone or even by kidney stones (see "common causes" below). Note...

Trigger Point Therapy - Treating the Hip Adductors

Posted by Julian Knight on

  Treating the hip adductors - Stuart Hinds   The adductor magnus is the largest of the adductor muscle group, which also includes the adductor brevis and adductor longus. The adductor longus is the most anterior of the three. The adductor brevis lies anterior to the adductor magnus. The lateral border of the upper fibers of the adductor longus form the medial border of the femoral triangle (the sartorius forms the lateral boundary; the inguinal ligament forms the superior boundary).   Adductor Magnus - Common Trigger Point Sites       Adductor Brevis and Adductor Longus - Common Trigger Point...
