The front of my right hip near where the psoas ties in is painful when I try to flex the hip past 90 degrees or when I extend the hip in a fully flexed position like in the bottom of a squat. 

My left ql is also locking up as a result. The left tfl and hip flexor region is also very tight. Anyone know if they are related and if it is because of weakness or tightness?

Thanks for the reply. I have done the psoas release with the theracane religiously for the past few months. It seemed to help at the start but not so much now. I will have to try the piroformis release. Do you think a tight piriformis is causing the pain?

Might want to try Active Release Therapy...worked for me when all kinds of stretching didn't.
