Book description

What if the underlying cause of your pain is a tight and unrecognized muscle in your hip that is just waiting for attention?
Do you have pain in your back, tailbone, pelvis, hip, knee, or foot that won’t go away, no matter what you try? All of these issues can persist because of tightness in the iliacus (sounds like “silly yak kiss”), a muscle in your hip that is part of what is commonly called the “hip flexor.”

Most people don’t even know they have an iliacus, let alone understand how it’s affecting their life, causing pain with sitting, exercise, sexual positions, and sleep. The truth is that almost everyone has tightness in this area and this tightness twists the core of the body. As a result of too much sitting, driving, running, biking, kicking, heavy lifting, yoga, dance, gymnastics, or stress, a tight hip could be the missing link to enjoying a pain-free life.

In Tight Hip, Twisted Core you will:

• Discover how this muscle impacts your body from head to toe

• Determine if you are one of the millions of people with a tight iliacus muscle and why

• Release the tension in the muscle for good

• Get your body aligned for pain-free performance

• Prevent this muscle from getting tight ever again

Based on decades of physical therapy study and clinical practice, this book outlines 3 simple steps to get your hip healthy and your core aligned, helping you to resolve your pain without expensive treatments, surgeries, and medications.

About the author

Christine Koth, MPT, is a holistic physical therapist who has specialized in the hip area for decades and has helped countless clients recover from hip-related issues. Aptly named the “Iliacus Queen,” Christine is also the inventor of the Hip Hook iliacus muscle release tool that is designed to replicate the pressure on the iliacus muscle that only a skilled practitioner could produce.

Testimonials

I am astounded by Christine’s ability to clearly articulate this mysterious concept in a way that anyone can understand it. This is a huge discovery in how the hip area works, and how one tight muscle affects the rest of the body. This book will significantly impact the way health care professionals treat the hip from now on.

“In her new book Tight Hip, Twisted Core, Christine uses compelling storytelling and her deep experience in physical therapy to shed light on the meaning of a “tight hip.” She addresses an important and often dreaded twosome, what I often call the “snarky psoas and irritated iliacus. As a veteran PT who specializes in hip and pelvic pain and safety for the hip in yoga, I am delighted to see Tight Hip, Twisted Core published. This much needed book can help you begin to understand some of the major players that affect hip health, and give you an understanding of what helps versus what harms the hip. Tight Hip, Twisted Core is an accessible, easy to understand text that can benefit anyone who has had hip pain or anyone whose hip is the cause of pain in other places.”

“If you’ve been everywhere and tried everything for hip, knee, ankle, or foot pain without success, read this book. Christine Koth is a talented Physical Therapist whose expertise I deeply trust. Through our years working together with patients, I’ve come to rely on her as the Sherlock Holmes of the team. Always striving to discover the core cause of complaints, she never stops until she finds "the why." Her keen eye for observation and ability to sense subtle imbalances led her to discover a major missing element to musculoskeletal complaints—the iliacus. Expanding my appreciation for the role of this muscle has shifted my approach and improved how I manage patients with musculoskeletal pain.”

“Christine has identified an underappreciated cause for many people suffering from hip and spinal pain. As we live in a culture where we spend most of our time in a sitting position, it is completely logical that this repetitive hip tightness is at the core of many pain conditions. When the core is twisted, the spine has no chance to be in alignment.”

"Christine Koth understands the complex dynamics of the hip and with her tools brings relief to those who suffer. I've witnessed this both in my own body and in my patients during the decades of working side by side with her. This book teaches how to effectively treat a tight hip and twisted core, exposing why the hip flexor complex is important, why it gets tight, what happens to the entire body when it is tight, and what to do about it. It is a valuable tool for those who suffer, as well as health care providers."
