Referred Pain Pattern
Active trigger points in the psoas or iliacus will cause referred pain to the low back and upper gluteal area, as well as the upper part of the anterior thigh.
While pressing into the trigger point with your thumb or fingers, bring your client’s knee up over the point and externally rotate their leg. Find the position where there is no pain in the trigger point. Hold for 30 - 90 seconds, or until you feel a release, then bring your client back to a neutral position while continuing to hold the trigger point, and ask your client how it feels.
