Hip pain is common, and hip pain treatment in Malaysia often neglects the most important muscle; the iliopsoas muscle. Hip pain treatment that overlooks or ignores the iliopsoas muscles is a mistake committed by many in Malaysia. We at Chiropractic-in-Malaysia want to highlight the importance of the iliopsoas muscle in hip pain treatment in Malaysia. In the coming paragraphs, we will describe the iliopsoas muscle and its’ significance in treating hip pain, back pain, and even knee pain.
The Iliopsoas Muscles & Hip Pain
These muscles make up the iliopsoas muscle: psoas major, iliac, and psoas minor. Psoas major originates from the transverse processes of L1-L5 and inserts into the lesser trochanter of the thigh bone. The nerve supply of psoas major is from the lumbar plexus. Iliacus originates from the upper iliac fossa, iliac crest, anterior sacroiliac ligaments, and base of the sacrum. Iliacus inserts partly into the tendon of psoas major and slightly into the lesser trochanter of the femoral bone. The femoral nerve innervates the Iliacus muscle. Psoas minor comes off the sides of the vertebral bodies of T12-L5 and inserts into the upper part of the pubic ramus. Psoas minor may be absent in specific individuals, and ventral rami of the lumbar nerves supply this muscle.
Increased tension in the iliopsoas muscle due to pelvic misalignments such as SI dysfunction or sacroiliitis may increase the risk of sprain or strain injuries. In severe cases, the tight muscle may cause the avulsion of the lesser trochanter on the femoral bone. The goalie in ice hockey who performed a quick abduction maneuver such as a split may injure this muscle.
