Tight Hips? Back Pain? The Hip Hook Story


The EASIEST way to fix unresolved pain!

Just a few minutes a day with the Hip Hook can provide long-term pain relief to the lower back, hips, tailbone, knees, and feet. The iliacus and psoas muscles (your hip flexor) get chronically tight from too much sitting, being hypermobile, and with certain athletic activities. Releasing the tension in this muscle can resolve an anteriorly rotated pelvis which can be a root cause of pain all over the body. I am just thrilled to be able to offer this innovative tool that addresses an undiscovered and under-treated cause of pain.

These 2 muscles have an important job, to connect the upper part of your body to the lower half! Although these muscles are also responsible for flexing your hip (bringing it forward), their main job is to help hold your spine, pelvis, and hip together. The iliacus and psoas are called the iliopsoas together. They often time contract and stay knotted up when the body is either too mobile or if those muscles are overused.

Because we need them to stabilize us, activities like sitting, running, biking, kicking, and weightlifting are common causes of tightness along with too much stretching like yoga and dance. As you can see, there are lots of reasons these muscles tighten and this tightness can cause pain in all kinds of places in the body.

I uncover these patterns in my bestselling book, Tight Hip Twisted Core - The Key to Unresolved Pain!

This is also why I designed the world's first tool designed specifically to release the iliacus muscle - The Hip Hook
