Iliopsoas Tendinitis Clinical Evaluation

  • Groin pain with or without snapping over the anterior hip.
  • Pain is exacerbated by hip ROM and resistive hip flexion.

  • Dynamic ultrasound can confirm snapping of iliopsoas tendon if present.
  • MRI generally indicated to rule out other pathologic conditions.
  • Consider confirmatory diagnostic injection.

Iliopsoas Tendinitis Classification / Treatment

  • Rest, activity modifications, avoidance of snapping, stretching and strengthening of the ioliopsoas and iliotibial band, and NSAIDs.
