What Causes Hip Low Back Pain?

Can Weak Hip Flexors Cause Back Pain?



Do you experience hip low back pain back or leg pain? Does it seem to get worse when you sit or stand for a long time? what if we told you it can be caused by tight and inflexible hip muscles?


Come learn how to stretch and relax these muscles with us at IMMERSE Modern Massage. What causes low back pain: prolonged sitting and standing, causes gravity to press one on you, causing instability in the lower back.

The Importance Of Desk Posture Stretches For Hip Low Back Pain



When you sit, your hip flexors are short and tight. For a lot of people who work at desks, hip extensions are super important. We’re going to focus on lower back assessment, treatment and exercises, looking at what causes lower back pain.

Hip extensions are also important in order to keep your spine balanced. Spinal flexion aggravates the issue, so we would start by addressing that posture. Spinal flexion and hip extension are the main causes of hip lower back pain.

A key correction point is learning how to sit with proper posture and maintaining a high level of spinal mobility including flexing, extending, and rotating your spine.

Sitting with a slouched position, low back posture tighten hip flexors (psoas major, tensor fascia latae [TFL]) and gluteal muscles. Sitting for long periods of time tightens the hip flexor muscles and gluteal muscles, which often leads to lower back pain.

There are simple stretches that you can do at home to help rehabilitate your hip flexors, gluteals and lower back muscles.

    Entering the space I immediately felt calm, the lighting and ambiance was perfect for relaxing. The warmth, low light and wooden ceiling made me feel like I was in a sauna. Mason greeted me and made me feel comfortable as we entered the … More massage room. The bed was heated, with weighted blanket and calming music vibrated the entire bed. I melted away as mason massaged my whole body, taking care to leave me mostly covered under the warm blanket the entire time. He also used heated towels and a wonderful essential oil blend. I felt truly relaxed and my whole body vibrated with warmth and comfort. Would definitely come back again!

    Wow! My massage with Mason was healing on so many levels! He addressed the spots of tension and diligently worked to remind my muscles that it’s okay to relax. He was very attentive to my needs and comfort.
    Immerse is definitely an appropriate
    … More name for this space as you are enveloped in delightfully warm infrared heat (through amethyst crystals!), the soothing sounds of a waterfall, and a sound bath of vibrations coming directly from the table!
    The thoughtful intention put in to making Immerse Modern Massage the healing environment that is it is apparent and very much appreciated!

    Wow! Walking into Immerse Modern Massage, my entire body immediately relaxed right at the front door. The aromatherapy is so intoxicating and soothing, and the ambiance is very nice. Walking into the treatment room was even better. They … More really did such a good job with the place! Not to mention the massage table! Omg, it felt so incredible to be sandwiched in between healing frequencies, warmth, and high vibrations. I can’t wait to go back!!! I was impressed to say the least.

    Such a lovely experience from beginning to end. The lobby was beautifully decorated with plants, and Mason greeted me with such warmth. The table vibrates with music and is so comfortable and warm. The weighted blankets helped me feel so … More cozy and relaxed. The technique and grounded presence Mason offers is excellent. I especially enjoyed the warm scented towel on my face and neck at the end of the massage. So rejuvenating and relaxing. I felt calm and peaceful. Wholeheartedly recommend!

    Mason is awesome! I just had an amazing massage experience and loved it. He attentively addressed the tension spots in my body and worked through them. The massage table vibrates synced up to the meditative music which was sooo relaxing … More and helped me be super dropped into the moment. The weighted blanket and the warm scented towels were another highlight. Highly recommend. Thank you, Mason!
