  1. My left hip flexor/psoas has been the source of my low back pain and groin pain for almost a year. I even thought it was a hernia at first. You are so right, the psoas is a complicated major muscle! This stretch has really helped alleviate the pain and tightness on my left side. Thanks for the stretch and info!!!
