Iliopsoas Bursitis/Tendinitis Causes
Iliopsoas bursitis and iliopsoas tendonitis are often caused by excessive rubbing against a broad, shallow groove over which your iliacus and psoas major pass (the pubic iliopectineal eminence). The tendon may first become irritated and inflamed, leading to swelling and increase friction on the iliopsoas bursa underneath.
Leg length discrepancies may result in a skewed gait (abnormalities in the way you walk) which can cause more pressure on the iliopsoas bursa than usual. In addition, age and degenerating tissues often causes a decrease in your tendon flexibility can change the movement in your hip joint, leading to excess friction on the tendon and bursa.
Iliopsoas tendinitis and/or bursitis are common during growth spurts when you are younger because your biomechanics are altered around the hip area. The tendons and muscles area tight, the pelvis begins to tilt, and the rest of the lower body goes out of alignment. This can affect the lower back, hip joints, knees and your gait which can result in lower body joint issues.
Overuse of the Iliopsoas Muscle
Changes in equipment or training terrain (mountain bike to road bike, road running to trail running) or changes in the intensity of your activity (increase running time or weight lifting poundage without proper preparation) can result in overexertion, which end in iliopsoas injuries.
Loads of up to eight times your body weight have been demonstrated in your hip joint during vigorous athletic competition, and movements such as standing and twisting at the waist without moving your feet, or externally rotating your leg outward while its in normal extension are responsible for iliopsoas injuries. Hurdlers, high jumpers, baseball, soccer players, or athletes who are at risk of getting tackled are prone to this type of injury. Others who participate in activities that involve uphill running and/or jumping, lots of kicking, weight training and heavy lifting (lots of bending and squatting) are also at risk.
Iliopsoas syndrome is caused from an abrupt contraction of your iliopsoas muscle, which results in a tear or rupture of your muscle (normally a partial tear where your muscle and tendon connect).
