  • PSOAS pain

    Everytime I deadlift or even during RDLs I feel a stabbing-like sensation in my PSOAS, sometimes the pain is so deahbilitating that I have to quit my workouts mid-session.
    My PT suggested acupuncture/massages around the P.S.O.A.S. area but even after those I'm still feeling very anxious regarding my PSOAS health.
    What do you suggest? Should I see a specialist? I will stop working out in the meantime to not worsen the pain.

    Hi there,

    Sorry to hear about this. While we can't give you individualized recommendations via this forum, our general recommendations for managing pain in training can be found here:

    We do not recommend people stop exercising altogether to manage musculoskeletal pain.

    We also do not think that acupuncture/needling/massages are particularly useful for the majority of musculoskeletal pain. If you are feeling anxious, consulting with a healthcare professional may be helpful here. Our rehab team would be happy to consult with you as well.
