My physiotherapist diagnosed a tight iliacus and psoas last January. After only one massage treatment the psoas loosened up but it's been 4 months and the iliacus is still tight, although it has loosened somewhat.

I am taking deep tissue massage and have been stretching with lunges held for 30 seconds. Today I began the stretches with movement that you show on your website.

I have pain in my hips, groin and above my left knee. My therapist tells me that tight quads have pulled my knee cap up. I am stretching and massaging my legs and hope this will help.

I had lower back pain but that has mostly disappeared. I'm afraid that if I don't loosen the iliacus that I will suffer permanent damage to my hip, which appeared normal on a recent X-ray.
