This means it doesn’t start at one specific time but instead slowly becomes an issue over weeks and months. This injury usually presents a few different ways as well: Iliopsoas tendinopathy (inflammation and/or degrading of the tendon), compression of the underlying bursa sac, and snapping of the muscle over bony areas of the pelvis causing a “pop” feeling.
