  • More on Releasing Tight Hips

    A few months ago I told you all about a man I had done 2 minutes of iliopsoas releases on in my chiropractors office.

    I have been seeing this man every 2 weeks for the past 4 months.

    His wife told me today that his hip pain has not been this good in over 15 years. I love to hear this kind of feedback!

    In Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique (SMRT) when we use the term “release” we are talking about liberating the muscle from whatever dysfunction may be holding it in a specific pattern.

    In this client’s case, his right psoas major was inhibited, while his right iliacus was facilitated.

    The same position that corrects the faulty neurological information provided to an inhibited muscle, calms the facilitated muscle’s excited neural signal.


    By creating a conversation with the proprioceptors within a muscle, we both open up communication between the inhibited muscle and the nervous system and moderate communication between the facilitated muscle and the nervous system.
