This is SO much better than other methods!

I use this ball to release both my hip flexors and piriformis muscle. I’ve tried tennis balls and those PT balls with rubber spikes on them, and something about the shape, size, and flex of the Aletha ball makes it SO much better! This really gets into the piriformis and helps release it better than anything else I’ve tried, and it is easy to use on the hip flexor / psoas area as well. I highly recommend this product.

Magical

It works so quickly! As soon a I finish I have a nice lifted low back curve, my thighs touch the floor and I no longer feel weighted on my sacrum. It immediately puts me into ideal alignment. I have a more fluid range of motion when bending forward as well. I’m really amazed by how effective it is and how different I feel afterward. I feel like a whole bunch of tension just left my body that I never even knew I had. This is incredible!

Solved 10 years of chronic back pain

I have suffered for over 10 years with chronic lower back, glutes, and upper back pain. Additionally, I have suffered for 5 years from a cramp in my hip - following bi-latteral hip replacement - anytime I try to walk more that a block or two. First I read Christine’s Book - Tight hip, Twisted Core, then bought the Hip Flexor Ball. In the beginning, my glutes, hips, and back were so tight, it took me over an hours to hit all the trigger points with the ball. I am now two months into the use of the ball, and virtually ALL my pain is gone. I now have to search to find any trigger points as I maintain my daily procedure for releasing the tight muscles. I am now walking 30 minutes daily, which is something I have not been able to do since my hip replacement. Used to be I could only stand for 15 minutes before needing to sit to relieve my back. That’s gone now! This has give me a new life.

Pain-free running again!

I use the hip flexor release ball before every run and it has been able to get into my hip flexors like nothing else that I have ever used before and I have tried just about any ball or roller on the market.

  • What type of issue brought you to this product? tight hip flexor
  • What activity do you believe is responsible for this issue? Likely, not enough stretching

Love this "tool"

This little ball enables me to "hit" evey knot in my body from my neck to my lower buttocks! It is as good as having a massage therapist at your disposal ANYTIME of day! I now incorprate stretching into my routine when I use this ball which is 3-4 times a week.

  • What type of issue brought you to this product? Low back pain
  • What activity do you believe is responsible for this issue? C-section, hysterectomy, hip injury

Gentle Pressure

I had a c-section and a hysterectomy many years ago and then on top of that a hip injury. I have suffered with low back pain, groin pain, and hip pain for many years. I have been through physical therapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic adjustments, but never got long lasting relief. The Hip Flexor Release Ball helped me gradually introduce pressure into the iliacus and psoas so I could then use the Hip Hook tool. I feel much better now and I can tell my hips are gradually realigning.

  • What type of issue brought you to this product? Unable to walk very far without hip pain after being unable to walk for 6 weeks after a leg fracture.
  • What activity do you believe is responsible for this issue? Fracture of the tibial plateau during a total knee replacement -- a 0.01% occurrence, but that only means I'm a 1-in-10,000 person.
  • How effective was this tool at releasing tension? Not so greatOkIt's magical!

Hits the Spot(s)

Certainly helps to reach the iliacpsoas without resorting to a trained massage therapist digging into your lower intestines. So far, I've actually had a bit more luck with the ball than the Hip Hook, but I anticipate that the Hook will help focus on very specific adhesions.

IT’S PERFECT!

Perfect size and perfectly firm. Great to use in the derrière area as well as putting it on the wall for “massaging” the scapula area. THANKS, ALETHA!

  • What type of issue brought you to this product? Pain in lower back and the gluteal muscles.
  • What activity do you believe is responsible for this issue? I pitch to my kids travel baseball team. I have to bend on my right side to pick baseballs out of a bucket, than pitch to the kids. It’s this repetitive motion that fires up my lower back and gluteal muscles.
  • How could we have made this product easier to use? It’s perfect
  • How effective was this tool at releasing tension? Not so greatOkIt's magical!

I love this little guy!

This little guy hits spots that the foam roller can’t get. The pressure and massage like effect I get from using the ball greatly reduces the tension and pain from my lower back through my gluteal muscles.

Love for lower back

I have a lot of pain in my lower back and glutes. In anticipation of, during, and after a weeklong golf trip, I used the ball each evening to relieve pain and keep me moving easy on my vacation! I tried using it in the front like in the videos but couldn’t find any “spots” that felt tight.

Bought to use with HIP HOOK

I have used this Release Ball for use in conjunction with the Hip Hook. After using the hook, I use this ball for the piriformis release as well as other muscles in my leg. Nothing has helped more to release the many knots that my body than this and it does not require uncomfortable positioning that a foam roller might do. I have had far better results from finding and holding the knots (painful or tight spots) and wait until they melt away. My body is attempting to recover from a car accident that set off a series of injuries and referred pain in my muscles. I failed to purchase this release ball when I got the Hip Hook, not understanding how important it is to the process. I have not used it for the hip flexor (poses) because the Hip Hook does that for me, but I would use this on travel and have brought it with me when I needed a release away from home.

Perfect size to target larger area

Prolonged pressure really works and this size ball helped me release muscle tension in areas larger than my lacrosse ball can reach.

It works

My hip flexors were so tight that it was affecting my groin muscle and made it hard to stand and walk after sitting. Using this ball has really made a difference. Still on the road to recovery but the money spent was worth it!

Works great, much better than other balls

I have used other balls and so my expectations were not high, but because of the unique size and fact that it has some "give", this ball is different. I has really helped me doing release work on muscles around my hips and hamstrings.

Plays well with the Hip Hook

I use this as part of my daily pain management protocol. My hips feel better so it's easier to walk and hike and do my other sports. Worth having!
