Post PSOAS MUSCLE

What is the best stretch for this muscle? I have chronic back trouble and groin pain and want to see if this muscle is in need of stretching. Thanks.

There are a number of good sites that describe the different muscles and offer stretches for them. You will have to do a search since we are *forbidden* to post links.

Here is a sample stretch:
1. Place one knee on a stable chair with most of your weight shifted to standing leg.
2. Slowly lean your pelvis forward until you feel tension in the hip/quad area.

Hope that helps.
