A 36-year-old male professional soccer player sustained an acute left hip injury during a tournament game while defending the goal. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a complete avulsion of the iliopsoas tendon from the left trochanter. The patient was treated nonoperatively, and after 10 weeks, he was able to return to full activity. After 1 year of follow-up, the patient was completely asymptomatic, and was still playing professional soccer without flexion strength deficit.In this professional soccer athlete, nonoperative treatment of complete psoas avulsion resulted in a good functional outcome and successful return to play.
