Even though many women suffer from the painful effects of endomytriosis and ovarian cysts, it is not very well known that sometimes this low abdominal pain is generated from problems with the psoas muscle, which becomes very painful when stretched too tightly.
The psoas is the primary muscle attaching the spine to the legs. This muscle sits deep in the core of the body very closely to the abdominal and pelvic organs; hence the pain from a psoas problem can mimic that of gynecological problems.
Successful treatment of psoas problems can include one or more of the following:
- manual spinal adjustment
- massage therapy
- trigger point therapy
- stretching and strengthening exercises.
