Frequently asked questions

How does the Mark differ from other hip flexor or psoas release tools?

Other tools on the market focus only on the psoas muscle, but do not address the iliacus muscle at all. For best results, you need to treat both muscles.

The Mark was designed by a physical therapist to access both the psoas AND iliacus muscles, making it the most effective tool to release your hip flexors.

The size and shape of the Mark’s tip replicates a skilled practitioner’s fingers, allowing it to penetrate deeper into your muscles and with more precision than other tools.

Press into the psoas with the tip straight up. Access angles that you could never reach before by pressing down on the handle to rotate the tip of the Mark. This is how you get to the iliacus.

What is the difference between the psoas and the iliacus muscles?

Your hip flexor is made up of the iliacus and psoas, which are intimately connected near the hip, but are still two separate muscles. These muscles perform similar, yet different functions in the body. They also have different attachment points and are innervated by different nerve roots.

If there is tension in one, there is likely tension in both. Releasing tension in one but not the other will lead to short-term results. For the best and longest-lasting results, you should be releasing both your iliacus and psoas muscles.

Can't I just use a lacrosse ball?

No. A lacrosse ball is not big enough to reach the psoas or the iliacus. While a larger ball may be able to reach the psoas in a diffuse way, it still will not be able to target the iliacus on the inside of the pelvic bone.

The patented design of the Mark allows for firm, direct, and precise pressure to both the psoas and iliacus muscles from many different angles.

Once you try it, you will find that it is able to target the psoas and iliacus in a way that no ball or other self-release technique or tool can.

Will the Mark address my pain?

Tension in the iliacus and psoas muscles can have a huge impact throughout the entire body because it can twist your core affecting not only your back and hips, but your lower and upper body.

The Mark has helped thousands of people overcome:

Lower back pain
