I have had hip pain for 3 years. I went to an orthopedic specialist, had x-rays and MRI all to no avail. Physical therapy did nothing. I also ordered the Unlock Your Hip Flexors and stayed out a couple of months ago. I can’t say I’m totally pain-free but close. The Unlock Your Hip Flexors is so easy it and doesn’t seem like it should work but it does!
I have always done a lot of stretching after my workout so I’m not sure what I wasn’t doing right but I don’t really care. I can walk and stand where I couldn’t before I started this program. It’s worth every penny. Thank you!
I got the Unlock Your Hip Flexors Program about 3 weeks ago. I am feeling stronger in my hips already. I had a left hip replacement and six months of PT didn’t help but this is helping!
After a week or two of beginning the Unlock Your Hip Flexors routine, even while instinctively I could FEEL things activating and loosening up a bit, especially right after the routine, over a few weeks time I could feel tingling and little rush type tingles up and down my spine – like good tingles, not numb tingles but like – happy spiritual ones. I don’t know if this sounds weird or not but even the descriptions of how this muscle group is the “life muscle” or whatever… it’s been the coolest, most strange experience ever.
Thanks for these awesome videos and for sharing your knowledge. I would be happy to offer a short version of a review, but it looks like you have a lot of success helping a lot of people! Your customer service video was great about customers complaining and swearing and asking them to “Be Nice” hahaha awesome! We get a lot of that too in customer service with selling a product online. Great stuff.
I bought the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program through the authors website and it’s terrific. I’ve used some of the drills the past few weeks and it’s benefiting me significant. This is NOT a quick fix but it’s the real deal and will get you long-term results. Recommended!
I ordered the Unlock Your Hip Flexors exercises and finally opened it after a week of it sitting on a table. It really works! I’ve had hip pain on and off since 2003 after running. The last 2 years have been very painful and frustrating.
This Monday, I was able to run 2 miles straight pain-free. I kept waiting for my right hip to hurt during the run and especially after the run. I’m usually limping for a few days even after just running a mile. But no limping here.
I’ve done physical therapy (PT) in the past, including icing and taking lots of Advil, but they were only temporary fixes. I still incorporate some of the PT exercises with what I’m currently doing now though. However, the Unlock Your Hip Flexors exercises have been surprisingly effective in such a short time. It’s worth the investment!
I have downloaded the Unlock Your Hip Flexors. Excellent book. I have a very tight psoas which has caused extreme pain in the past. I mean morphine pain. Trapped nerves and hip rotation occurred because of this shortening. I do stretches but wondered what else I can do. Now I have answers. Thank you!
I was skeptical but I bought the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program. The verdict is in. It really helps tremendously. I’m 85% better. I had a torn meniscus do to a car accident. Had surgery and a 1/4 of it was removed. I developed an extremely tight IT-BAND, Piriformis syndrome, tight hips and extreme lower back pain… My walking gate was compromised… Yes I had chiropractic care, still do. Yes I get monthly massages. I’ve trained in combative martial arts the last ten years but the last two years have not been as enjoyable but the Unlock Your Hip Flexors offers more hope than what I’ve had in a long time.
The first two days triggered sciatic nerve pain in both legs when doing planks so I omitted them but after a week of modifications planks are not a problem. LISTEN to your body. Physicians are good, I get annual check up but there aim is to make money. I seek their counsel but I don’t check my brains at the door. If anyone works this program they will see results. I’m flexible but still combat tightness which comes with age. People have very valid points – connective tissue damage being one.
Surgery should be the last resort. Strengthen & stretch.
Also, I thought I was going to have to stop working because I could barely walk without discomfort and pain. I’ve no more pain just periodical tightness which can be managed. I appreciate y’all. Most people would charge an arm and a leg but you guys have a great product for a very reasonable price.
I just received the Unlock Your Hip Flexors book and video two days ago. It is a well put together system. I have had horribly tight hip flexors for years and am hoping this will help. I definitely felt a bit of relief after doing it the last two nights. I am going to give it some time.
I just did the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program for the first time and it is very effective! Yay!
It is only a 10-minute routine, not too tough but I can see how much work needs to be done. I will definitely be continuing with this program. Kudos to Healing Through Movement.
What I have noticed by doing the Unlock Your Hip Flexors is my hips are getting stronger and therefore releasing the pain in my lower back and legs.
I just used it for two days but I really can tell the difference. This is a wonderful program, it has helped me immensely. Thank you.
I have been using the Unlock Your Hip Flexors for the last 6 weeks or so. It has helped me. My hip and low back pain has decreased immensely and I can now plank!
I am 5 months post op from a fractured back and I have some arthritis in my low back. I will definitely recommend this to my friends and family! Thank you.
I ordered the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program and in less than a week’s time I have gotten great results.
It is very easy to follow and doesn’t take much time!
I just want you to know that after doing the Unlock Your Tight Ankles for the very first time, I was amazed at how truly significant my ankles are to my general posture and back.
I can’t thank you enough for sharing this with me, even though I haven’t been as diligent as I intend to be in the future. Ankles carry a lot of weight and they deserve a fair chance to do their job right!
I am a runner and was having issues with my knees and hips. But now that I am using the Unlock Your Hip Flexors, I have no more pain in my hips or knees!
The best thing about the Unlock Your Hip Flexors is that it is easy to do, and doesn’t take a lot of time with fast results. Why didn’t I find it earlier!?
I will definitely recommend this to my friends. As it is easy to do, has a quick, sequence of stretching to unlock your hip flexors, which is great for runners, crossfitters or any athlete that has hip flexor issue.
I am a 29 year old appliance engineer, which means I am often lying underneath washing machines and dishwashers in awkward and tight positions. Before using the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program, I had a stiff and sore body, really tight hips and anterior pelvic tilt.
But then, I found the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program, tried it out and I was very surprised with the results. Even after just 1 week of use, I could feel an improvement to my upper leg and core strength. I can also SEE that my anterior pelvic tilt had begun to improve a little.
I enjoyed the in depth analysis of the psoas muscle in the manual. It’s like the EFI team put a lot of effort in professional researching. This makes me feel that Rick really knows what he is talking about. Also, I feel I should mention that I found the the exercises very enjoyable. Some of them are new to me, which is exciting, and are very easy to follow.
I know that this business is booming right now and will experience bumps on the way up. However, I am sure that, with this level of knowledge and dedication, they will be on top of everything and improve their programmes even more!
So for everyone who’s thinking if you should or shouldn’t buy the Unlock Your Hip Flexors, do not think twice as I experienced it myself and I can assure you great results.
Thank you for your hard work and all that you do. Good job and keep up the good work!
My life was fine before, but I am almost 66 years old and definitely feeling tightness in my hips and hamstrings. I would also on occasion get some horrific cramps at night in my inner thighs at night over the past couple of years. Never had a cramp there, and almost impossible to get rid of. I feel it was tied into my back, where I have had L4-5 problems.
I am an avid golfer, and played division one baseball at Cal, and professionally in the St. Louis Cardinals organization for 4 years, so I know what it feels like to have your body working well, and when it is not. I felt I needed professional help, so reached out to you.
Only been doing the Unlock Your Hip Flexors for a couple of weeks, but my back is much better, and my hips are coming around too. Purchasing you “Unlock Your Hip Flexors” program is the best bargain I can ever remember, and I have downloaded your other Christmas gifts as well. Thank you for doing this. I believe your program will help me with my golf too, as flexibility has so much to do with how well you can play.
Thanks for giving me a “game plan.
Overall I am very pleased with Unlock Your Hip Flexors. Before doing these exercises, my lower back was always very stiff with mild pain when moving. I didn’t know where to start so I didn’t do anything other than walking. Mentally, I was not at my best and almost daily gave into unhealthy cravings. Now, I am more flexible, with the mild pain being felt at the end, not the beginning, of stretches. I feel more positive, light and healthy. I have cruised through a month now without unhealthy cravings so whether a placebo or not, I can not deny the profound effect that this short exercise routine has had on me.
I would recommend Unlock Your Hip Flexors as a good, trustworthy place to start when you are just afraid to do anything as it might be wrong and make things worse.
For the past several years, I have been a part time clinical instructor at a dental school in San Francisco. My commute from home to the school involves about 2 1/2 hours time driving and riding on the train each way. Those hours sitting plus hours sitting while eating or on the computer daily has definitely weakened my back.
However, since I’ve been doing the Unlock Your Hip Flexors exercises twice a week, I have noticed a definite improvement and my back is getting stronger.
Thanks for your help!
I am satisfied with the program. I used to be an athlete back in high school (soccer and track), but haven’t been doing any sort of physical activity since the past 10 years, besides lifting weights in the local gym, which by the way has caused some muscle imbalances due to improper guidance. I recently started playing volleyball (since March) and found myself very unfit, very low on agility and jumping was troubling my knees and calf muscles. So I started to workout and condition myself in order to be able to play better ,correct my muscle imbalances , and in the long run regain my long lost athletic ability. I am making slow progress since I started.
When I started using the Unlock Your Hip Flexors Program, I started feeling better from the third day itself. I noticed a great difference in my performance during my weekly volleyball games.
I also observed that my tummy wasn’t bulging out like it used to before. However I am experiencing some muscle soreness when I do the program for three consecutive days. Since I am in a desk job, soreness in the hips takes time to recover. I have restarted the program since the past few days and reduced the time of the stretches by a few counts, so that I’m not sore the next day.
The best thing about the Unlock Your Hip Flexors is it is simple yet effective. I definitely recommend the Unlock Your Hip Flexors Program, especially if you sit a lot.
Unlock Your Hip Flexors is a good programme. I would recommend it.
I already recommended this program to my son.
Thank you for helping us out!
I love the Unlock Your Hip Flexors exercises. I sit all day and try to do them 2-3 times week. Always feels great!
I’m having good results from using the Unlock Your Hip Flexors. Most exercises are pretty clear and relatively simple.
I’m 65 years old and had a tough year with six months in bed, no exercise and my hips were welded in place. Psoas is crazy tight.
I’m glad I got the Unlock Your Hip Flexors. I am less stiff after my efforts to get back in shape. It’s a help!
My wife’s left hip would unpredictably and painfully lock up and as she loves walking this was bad news. So I got a copy of the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program for her and she has been following the program for two weeks.
The degree of movement is improving and the ‘lock ups’ are less frequent, there are some exercises she finds difficult (planks) but she is persevering and they are getting easier for her.
She was skeptical at first thinking that the program would involve resistance training but after watching the videos she gave it a try and is now enthusiastic and spreading the word.
I’m a 56 year old man, who’s never been near a gym in my life, had a few aches and pains over the years, but nothing serious. I’ve played golf for over 40 years and spent far too long sat at a desk or behind the wheel of a car, so carried a small bit of excess baggage and was looking for more flexibility and power in my golf game.
I’ve been using the Unlock Your Hip Flexors exercises 3 – 4 times a week since i received them, I feel more flexible, am hitting the golf ball with more authority with less effort and have dropped 2 inches from my waistline. It is simple to follow, doesn’t take up too much of my time and this combined with a more conscious effort to live healthier has meant I haven’t needed a single pain-killer / non-prescription drug for months.
As mentioned previously, Unlock Your Hip Flexors is simple to follow (with great support material) and hasn’t taken much of my time, yet has helped me get in better shape and feel much better about my movement / flexibility.
Keep up the good work!
I had bad adhesions attached to my psoas muscle from a colon resection in 2013. I had pain 24/7 plus every movement. My doctor said I needed surgery or physical therapy. I ordered your Unlock Your Hip Flexors Program and in 8 weeks of daily workout I broke the adhesions and I haven’t felt any pain since then. That was in August when I started the exercises of your program.
I still do most of the exercises just to stay free of pain. My doctor was amazed that I could do this on my own. Thank you for developing your exercises and making them available. I tell everyone about your website. Bless you.
As a health professional myself, I’m so happy to have stumbled across “Unlock Your Hip Flexors” for both myself and the clients I work with. I personally deal with a lot of tightness and compression of my hips as the nature of my sports (speed skating, cycling) coupled with my drumming career lends itself to a lot of problems in the surrounding areas. Not only do the musicians that I work with experience similar issues, but anyone that spends a large amount of time during the day seated in front of the computer for work will often ask me “how can I stop feeling like this?”
Before I found Unlock Your Hip Flexors, I felt pretty good, I was able to utilize some hip flexor stretches and active release therapy, but found that the tightness of my hips and lower back pain was coming back after a day of sitting writing programs, playing drums or making video content. Since I’ve incorporated the hip flow sequence, I have seen noticeable improvements in my squat pattern, and no longer have a pain in my back after I sit for too long if I haven’t stretched that day.
I think the most valuable piece of Unlock Your Hip Flexors is really how easy it is to follow. Rick goes into great detail on “why” the stuff works and not just “what” you need to do… that makes a huge difference to a guy like me – competitive athlete, health coach and trainer myself – I need to know why, so I can understand the science behind it. But that also gives the folks that are new to exercise the ability to learn and effectively combat their own physical ailments associated with messy hips.
Listen, I’m stoked to incorporate these movements into any of the programs I create for both myself and any of my clients, the sequence is brilliant and has made a huge positive impact in bettering my life. If you are looking for an easy to use, daily regimen whether it’s just a warm up or a beach workout on vacation, this program will help you become the best version of yourself. Invest in Unlock Your Hip Flexors!
Before using Unlock Your Hip Flexors, I had been experiencing pelvic pain and hamstring tightness after I seemed to hurt myself doing some sprints. I also bought the “Unlock Your Tight Hamstrings”. Within one week the pain was gone and I was having no trouble running. I had been doing other exercises and stretches for 4 weeks prior to buying your programs with no results.
I continue to do the routines at least 4 times a week. I also bought your Forward Head Posture Fix program, which I am thrilled with and I still do this one 3 times a week. I don’t know if it is a coincidence but I have lost 2 and 1/2 kilos. I am sleeping better as I don’t get tightness in my piriformis muscle that used to wake me up with pain.
I have referred many of my patients to your site, I tell them your programs are simple, effective and very comprehensive.
Thank you Rick! I really enjoy the way you’re educating Unlock Your Hip Flexors program as well as having the exercises demonstrated. I’ve been able to activate my left glute, yay!
P.S – Happily both glutes are activated now. Big yay! Thank you so much.
Even from the very first time I used the Forward Head Posture Fix program, I was amazed. The first thing I immediately noticed is that I felt more stacked and erect. I also noticed an improvement in my breathing. My breathing got deeper and more rhythmic. I also found it much more comfortable to sleep especially lying in my back without a pillow. And I noticed that the pain in my right knee was much better.
I also tried the Unlock Your Hip Flexor program and with that I noticed that my hips were staying in alignment much longer. I used to realign them three or four times a day. Now I can go many days and they seem to be holding.
I also helped a friend who has Cohen’s syndrome with the Unlock Your Hip Flexor program. The alternate moves were easy enough for him to do and immediately we saw a big improvement in his posture.
I am so grateful for Rick’s programs and wish I could afford all of them.
My life before Fix My Knee Pain program was very poor movement in my legs for walking. This was due to pain around the knees, which seized up when I walked any distance greater than a 100 yards. I have noticed an improvement in my knee pain but it returns after a few hours. So I repeat the exercises and gradually it is improving.
The exercises are simple but have a profound effect on my knee pain and I expect that with the gradual improvement that I will be able to walk properly in the fullness of time.
Just wanted you to know Rick how helpful the Forward Head Posture FIX program I bought is helping me. It is a kind of whip lashing I got when raising up and hitting my head from down below very hard. The movement was getting more painful and restricted and doing these exercises daily is really reversing the damage.
Thank you so much.
Thank you for the Shoulder Injury Guide.
My life before the shoulder injury was frustrating, not being able to do the things you take for granted. I think I was doing more harm than good before.
My life is now improving and I hope to be able to get to a stage where I have full rotation of my arm and be able to do what I want to do.
The best thing about the Shoulder Injury Guide is to know how to do the movements correctly without further injury. It will take time and patience. There is a need to know how to perform the exercises correctly without causing further damage or pain in a slow methodical manner.
I had mobility problems mostly from Forward Pelvis Tilt seemingly caused by a leg injury after falling from a ladder onto the cement. I had been to many therapists but no one properly diagnosed my issue or could give me exercises to do to help resolve my issues.
The Ruthless Mobility video series did a lot to help me analyze my problem and start myself on a recovery plan.
The best thing about Ruthless Mobility is that Dean addressed specific issues and core reasons and how to analyze them, which is something missing in the therapy arena.
After 2 weeks of doing Unlock Your Hip Flexors every day, my hips are feeling great. Yesterday was the first day that I didn’t even have the conscious thought of “My hips hurt.” I didn’t realize it until going to bed yesterday how pain-free they were.
It’s an awesome product for your buck!
I did devour your interview with Dean’s 10 Commandments by transcribing them. I got so much out of doing that (took hours) that I purchased the program!
The Ruthless Mobility program has helped me find my anterior, internal thigh muscle I wasn’t engaging much. This in turn helped stabilize my hip and reduced pain as I exercise it. It gives context to my patience for allowing my lack of range of hip extension. Realizing that the ungiving muscle is loving and helping me with all it’s might. I can walk so much better now.
Your offerings have been helping me find new paths along my journey of late. The information have helped me gain awareness of some issues getting worse there – turning them around.
I just started studying all of these stuff a few months ago and don’t have ”the whole world” knowledge. I still need some time to work on and keep going.
Ruthless Mobility is helping me a lot. The best things for me were the breathing drills and foam rolling, which I don’t use in my training sessions as much as I want or need to. But from now on, I will incorporate that stuff too.
I will describe it as one of best resources of mobility foundations and drills that you can incorporate instantly to your training.
Thanks a lot one more!
I am very happy with your thorough routine on how to help alleviate the pain and tightness in my hips. I have been doing the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program almost every other day since I first got it and I am seeing significant improvements. I have also been using the Fix My Back Pain routine with it as well, and the two routines together are making great progress into bringing back my full ROM without and pain or weakness.
I believe my life was good but the nagging pain and tightness in my hips sometimes put a damper on my mental well being. Since beginning your program I have started to regain some of that confidence which I lost when my hips were tight and painful. I think the best thing was that I could incorporate it into my pre-workout warm up routine and even sometimes after I was finished. It is basic yet thorough and lots of the exercises can be performed anywhere and that I believe lends to the success of the program.
I would describe this program as a hidden gem to rehabilitating one of your bodies most essential joints. I believe programs like Unlock Your Hip Flexors need to be incorporated into anyone’s routine in order to allow that individuals to remain at peak performance through a fully functional And strong ROM.
I was unaware of how my bad habits were building up to create knee pain.
Fix My Knee Pain program has really helped me try to undo some of those bad habits and made me more mindful of how I stand, move, etc. It also made me more aware that I have to take care of myself.
The best thing about the Fix My Knee Pain program is the slow, calm, measured pace of Rick’s advice, and the grounding effect it has for me. The program has really helped me get into a discipline of what I need to do to help my knee and my legs in general to gain some strength back and take better care of myself.
I am so glad I found your programs! I have already recommended it to a few friends – I told them I liked the pace, Rick’s delivery, and the common sense of his advice.
The 5 Tricks That Fight Neck Pain and Tightness Program is helping but it might take some time. I had C-Spine surgery 20 years ago so i have some debilitation in the muscles.
You have give me hope that it can improve and I’m very grateful for that.
I have been using Rick’s Unlock Your Hip Flexors series to assist with my back issues and I want to thank you. The way my back feels these days is so much better and allows me to train again.
I want to use Rick’s teachings with my fitness clients to improve their the back conditions.
Before Forward Head Posture Fix, my neck made popping and grinding sounds every time I moved my head. I was always getting massages for my sore neck.
After 4 weeks of using the program, my neck makes almost no sounds when I move. I also feel taller and more confident and my neck doesn’t get as sore. I play trumpet and tend to push my head forward when I perform. Now, I am more aware and even play better.
Forward Head Posture Fix is a handful of simple exercises and stretches done each day that help align the neck and ease the pain and pressure from years of pushing the head forward. It might even prevent neck problems from happening later on.
I have been using the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program for a few months now, and I love it! I do it every morning and I can’t believe the difference it makes.
I have been exercising regularly so there are some days that my muscles are very tight, and doing my morning stretches has been awesome!
Before, I am having pain in the back, shoulder, knee and hip but after using the Invincible Core program I can feel that the pain reduced and I start to lose weight. I like all the exercises in the video for which I am doing step by step. They are all useful subject.
I already inform this to all my friends who have back, shoulder and knee pain to subscribe to Exercises for Injuries products.
I have found that I have more mobility and less overall joint pain after being on the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program for 3 weeks.
Oh by the way. I am in excellent health and in good shape, quite active and not a couch potato. Thanks for the follow up!
I would like to say that so far I am very happy with the Forward Neck Posture Fix. It was really well-presented, easy and quick to follow and very well set up to implement.
It has not really affected my general neck pain as yet (also general spasms and tension) but it is beautifully loosening up my upper back and spine and is already having a positive effect on my general posture.
Have a great day and God bless you and all the best for all the great work you are doing!
I had some problems at first. I was unaware that the lump in my glutes was my hip flexor poking through. I found this out when my hip locked up & my doctor checked it out. He looked at the Unlock Your Hip Flexors exercises & agreed that it would fix the problem.
Since this discovery the lump is getting smaller & the hip pain is regressing nicely. At least I sleep 4-5 hours before it wakes me. That’s a great improvement from where I started. So thank you.
