Iliopsoas tendinitis is a common injury in sport. Despite of this there are only a few articles in the literature that deal with these injuries. The changes in the inflamed tendons and muscles have been difficult to determine objectively. The modernization of ultrasound devices has improved the methods of examination and made it possible to diagnose objective changes in the tendons and muscles. Recommendations for the treatment of acute and chronic iliopsoas tendinitis are given.
