Prone Psoas Release

Prone Psoas Release

The psoas is directly attached to the lumbar vertebrae. When the psoas becomes tight, it tugs on the lumbar vertebrae, leading directly to lower back pain.

  1. Kneel on the floor.
  2. Place the tennis ball out in front of you, then lower yourself down onto the ball, belly down, so that it rests between your belly button and the inside of the pointy part of your right hip bone.
  3. Prop yourself up with your forearms and let your weight rest on the ball. It should feel as though the ball is pressing up and into your abdomen.
  4. Take some small, slow rolls forward and back. When you find a tender spot, stop and hold for 20 seconds. After you feel a release on the right side, switch to the left side.
