Iliopsoas tendinitis

Postby vdeub » Sat Aug 25, 2012 5:01 pm

Does anyone on the forum got some experience with this ?
Kiteboarding without stretching / sitting a lot in front of the computer, that should apply to a lot of us ;)
I am starting PT sessions now, but i would like to get some info / reassuring facts ..

Don t ride with boots.
Twin tip make it worst, usually strapless riding is less painful though. Less jumps,and hip flexions, I guess.

Well, everything matters. i have been dealing with this for years, and shoes matters.
in fact, running barefoot was still an option, and not with snickers.
More weight or more rigidity on the feet could make it worst. or not ;)

seriously, just in case that hepls someone down the line.
My condition seems to be related to stiff lower/upper body and lack of core strenght.
Basically, the body does not engage the core muscle, but overuse hip flexors.

basic exercises could be found here:

http://www.higher-faster-sports.com/noglutes.html

out of curiosity , can you do this ?

Core Stability

You'll also want to test your basic core stability.

TEST #1

PERFORM A PLANK: Get into a pushup position, then rest your forearms on the floor. Your body should form a straight line from your head to your feet (don't let your hips sag). Hold the position as long as you can. You pass if you can hold it for two minutes or longer.


You fail if you collapse before the two-minute mark, or if your hips dip at any point within that time frame.


TEST #2

PERFORM A SIDE PLANK: Turn onto your side and, keeping your body in a straight line (just as in the plank described above), rest your weight on your forearm. Hold the position as long as you can, then repeat on the other side.


You pass if you can hold the position for 90 seconds or longer.
