Did you know that 8 out of 10 people will experience back pain at some point in their lives? If you’ve ever been there, you’re not alone.

But focusing solely on your lower back might not be the best approach. Our bodies are interconnected, meaning various muscles in and around the lower back can contribute to pain – not just the one that’s currently screaming at you.

In this episode, we’re focusing on the relationship between tight hip flexors and low back pain, specifically with a muscle called the psoas (so-as).
