According to physical therapist and author of Tight Hip, Twisted Core: The Key To Unresolved Pain, Christine Koth:
“When the iliacus and the psoas are tight, they play tug of war with the back of the hip.
So that’s the glutes, the piriformis, the deep hip rotators and those muscles have chosen to also contract oftentimes as a result of iliacus and psoas being tight.
So we want to release, not just the front, but also release the secondary effect of that which is tightness in the back.
Really using a ball to put prolonged pressure on the muscles that are to the side of your tailbone will help with that.”

Hi, I’m Iain Barker creator of Back Pain Liberation.
I got back pain young and it got worse over time. Like many others in this situation, I saw plenty of doctors and therapists – all to no avail.
In the end self-help worked best – it often does for bad backs. Now I train regularly, focus on what works, and don’t get back pain.
My goal is to share what I learned. To help you find a more effective way when treatment doesn’t hit the spot.
