Triplanar Psoas Stretch

In this video, I show two different stretches for the hip flexors. I show the stretches for the left side of the body, but obviously, the stretches should be done on both sides.

Standing Stretch

This stretch is good to do if you are somewhere where it is not convenient to kneel on the floor to do a stretch.

Caution – This stretch may aggravate sacroiliac joint pain in a small minority of people. If you have any issues with your sacroiliac joint I recommend the kneeling stretch instead.

To stretch the left side stand in a lunge position with your left foot behind you, making sure your left foot is pointing straight forward. Raise your left arm overhead and back behind you. Then lean toward the right, then turn your upper body toward the left. Hold the stretch for 10 – 15 seconds.

Kneeling Stretch

To stretch the left side kneel on the floor with your left knee behind you, and have your left foot turned out so that your thigh is rotated internally. Raise your left arm and reach back over your head. Then lean to the right side. Hold the stretch for 10 – 15 seconds.
