The psoas muscle, back pain and acupuncture

3 muscles connect the spine to the thigh and they are the gluteus maximus, piriformis, and psoas muscles.

The psoas muscle originates from lumbar spine, crosses the outer edge of each pubis, and attaches at the femur (thigh bone) after it joins iliacus muscle. Your iliacus and psoas muscles are together known as the iliopsoas. The psoas major is divided into a superficial and deep part. Between the two layers lies the lumbar plexus (nerves to the lower limbs). The main function of psoas is to flex the hip joint and also rotate laterally and adduct weakly to the hip. It plays essential role of walking, standing, running. Tightness of the psoas can result in spasms or lower back pain by compressing the lumbar discs. Tightened and inflamed psoas can lead to irritation and entrapment of the ilioinguinal and the iliohypogastric nerves, resulting in a sensation of heat or water running down the front of the thigh. Tight psoas pulls the low back vertebrae forward and down toward the femur, pushing the abdominal contents outward and overarching in the lumbar spine. The inflamed iliopsoas or trigger points in the muscle can cause pain in the region of the lower back and the upper thigh. As a result, walking or standing could be painful.
