Understanding Psoas Syndrome

Psoas syndrome, also known as iliopsoas syndrome, involves painful irritation or injury to one of the psoas muscles – long muscles that run from the lower back to the top of the hips. While relatively rare, this condition can cause significant discomfort and may often be misdiagnosed due to overlapping symptoms with other ailments.

Symptoms and Causes

Psoas syndrome manifests through various symptoms including lower back pain, stiffness, buttock, groin, or hip pain. Pain exacerbation during specific movements or positions is common, sometimes radiating down the legs. Causes range from overuse, sports injuries to idiopathic origins, with athletes and those undergoing hip surgeries at higher risk.

Diagnosis and Treatment

Accurate diagnosis of Psoas Syndrome involves a thorough physical examination and may include imaging tests such as X-rays, ultrasounds, or MRIs. Given the similarity of symptoms to other musculoskeletal conditions and health issues, a careful process of elimination is undertaken.

At Holistiq Spine & Orthopaedic Clinic, our approach to treating Psoas Syndrome is tailored to the individual needs of each patient. Treatment may include:

  1. Rest and Activity Modification: Providing the affected area with adequate rest and avoiding activities that exacerbate symptoms.
  2. Physical Therapy: Targeted exercises to strengthen muscles, improve flexibility, and alleviate pain.
  3. Anti-inflammatory Nutrition: focuses on whole foods like fruits, vegetables, and omega-3 fatty acids to alleviate pain by reducing inflammation in the body.
  4. Injections: In cases of severe pain, cortisone injections may offer relief by reducing inflammation.
