Sports Massage Demonstration: Psoas Muscle for Back, Butt and Leg Pain, Athletic Tune-Up Austin
In this video, sports massage therapist, Ron Vaughn, explains why a tight psoas muscle can lead to pain or discomfort in the lower back, butt, legs, thighs, and core muscles. He demonstrates a unique technique for relaxing the psoas muscle and provides instruction that other therapists may find useful. The psoas muscle is a large part of the hip flexors muscle group and is used every time we walk, run, sit, etc.
Ron graduated in 1997 from Austin Schools of Massage in Austin, TX, and also has a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise & Sports Science from Southwest Texas State University (a.k.a. Texas State University of San Marcos).
Ron’s knowledge of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, health & fitness and his experience in athletic training, sports & recreation give him a unique style of sports massage. Ron uses Swedish massage, hydrotherapy, deep tissue, Myofascial release, and trigger point, (ROM) range of motion, stretching, and strength exercises to correct soft tissue dysfunction. Overuse of injured muscles may often create problems and imbalances in the soft tissues, which may become chronic if ignored.
