PSOAS / HIP FLEXOR PAIN
The hip flexor muscles are responsible for the movement of the legs and transferring the movement from the lower abdomen. The iliopsoas muscle is a long muscle that is located in the lower lumbar region of the spine, extending through the pelvis to the femur. These two muscles in the body are the major hip flexors of the trunk. They are separated by the abdomen and merge in the upper thigh providing stability and structural integrity.
ILIOTIBIAL BAND PAIN
Iliotibial Band pain is an overuse of the connective tissue that is located on the outer part of the thigh and knee. The iliotibial band (IT band) is a thick band that consists of a group of fibers that run from the hip to the top of the shin. With overuse the IT band can become tight making the band rub against the outside of the knee. This rubbing of the IT band can lead to pain and swelling, known as the Iliotibial Band Pain syndrome.
GREATER TROCHANTERIC BURSITIS
Greater trochanteric Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa, a sac filled with synovial fluid found in the major joints of the body. The bursa is located between bones and tendons, providing cushion around the joint, which prevents friction between the bones. When inflamed, it makes the joint movement very painful and difficult.
Arthritis is a medical term for a condition that causes inflammation of your joints and is a condition that affects about 1 in every 5 U.S. adults.There are more than 100 types of arthritis but the most common types are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
