What You Need to Know About your Psoas
Structurally, your psoas muscles are the deepest muscles in your core. They attach from your 12th thoracic vertebrae to your 5 lumbar vertebrae, through your pelvis and then finally attach to your femurs. In fact, they are the only muscles that connect your spine to your legs. That is why a tight or overstretched psoas muscle could be the cause of many or your aches and pains, including low back, pelvis & hips.
Whether you sit at a desk, run, bike, practice yoga, or just hang out on your couch, your psoas muscles are involved.
