Iliopsoas tendonitis, which is also known as snapping hip syndrome or dancer’s hip, is when you feel a snapping sensation when you flex and extend your hip. These stretches and exercises should help. See Doctor Jo’s blog post about this at: http://www.askdoctorjo.com/iliopsoas-tendonitis-snapping-hip-syndrome

Iliopsoas tendonitis can cause pain and be very annoying.

The first stretch will be a quad stretch. Get into a lunge position. Place the knee of the quad you want to stretch on the ground, and take the opposite leg and bend it in front of you at a ninety-degree angle. You might want to place a pillow under your knee to protect it. Then grab the ankle of the side you want to stretch and pull it up towards your buttocks. Hold for 30 seconds, and do it 3 times.

Next, you can stay on your knees, and put the leg you want to stretch out in front of you for a hamstring stretch. Try to keep your knee straight and your hips forward. With your back straight, bend forward at your hips. Hold the stretch for 30 seconds and do it three times.

Now you will sit on the ground with your knees propped up out in front of you. Take the leg of the side you want to stretch, and cross it over the other leg just above the knee. This will look like a figure 4 if you are looking down at your legs. You might feel the stretch already, but if you don’t, keeping your back straight, bend forward at your hips. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds, and repeat 3 times.

This stretch is a very intense stretch and will hurt for some people. For the IT band stretch, if you have a noodle or foam roll, lie on your side with the injured side down on the roll. Gently roll/pull your leg up and down from the hip to just past the knee. Start off with 30 seconds and work your way up to a minute.

Now you are going to get onto all fours or in the quadruped position. Try to keep your hands directly underneath your shoulders, and try to keep your back in a straight line, no arching up or down. You can do the exercises two different ways. First you can put your leg straight out behind you, and lift it up and down. You can also bend your knee with your foot facing the ceiling, and push your foot upwards.

Finally, roll over onto your side with the side you want to work on top. The top leg is going to stay straight and pull your toes up towards you. Keep your body in a straight line as well. Try not to let your leg come forward. Also, keep your hips up towards the ceiling, perpendicular to the ground. This is going to work your hip abductor muscles. Start off with 10 of these and work your way up to 20-25.
