How To Release A Tight Posas Muscle & Relieve Lower Back Pain
TIP: Use the bathroom before starting this technique because you'll be applying pressure to your abdomen, which may put some pressure on your bladder!
- Lay down on your back and bend your knees on a bed or the floor
- Take your hands and start gently applying pressure by pressing through your abdomen (from your hip to your belly button). This is where your psoas muscle is located.
- You want to start superficial, then start gently sinking deeper and deeper into you abdomen
- You will reach a point where you will start to feel some tension beneath your fingers
- When you find that first tension spot, hold that gentle pressure there
- Take a couple deep breaths in and out
- Every time you breathe out, you should be able to sink deeper into your psoas muscle
- Keep applying pressure in different areas from your belly button to your hip, to see if you have tension anywhere else. If you find another spot(s), then repeat the breaths
- Do this for 5-10 minutes
- When you sit back up, you should notice that your back is feeling better and your hips don't feel as tight!
