Relieve Your Muscles With the Hip Hook by Aletha

Even though I stretch every single time before I work out, I still get aches and pains.

It's super annoying, but as I've gotten older, pulled muscles and back pain have become more and more common. Going to the chiropractor or a physical therapist not only takes up a lot of time, but the cost can add up! So, when the team behind Aletha Health asked if I'd like to try out the Hip Hook, a tool designed to relieve muscle tension, I was more than happy to give it a go. Keep scrolling to find out more about Aletha and for my full and honest review of the Hip Hook.

The Brand

Aletha Health was co-founded by Christine Koth, a physical therapist of over 20 years. Along with her husband, she set out on a journey to provide muscle relief and tension in the iliacus muscle (which is responsible for multiple pain points in the body) with their invention of the Hip Hook. With over 25,000 units of the Hip Hook sold to date, it's proven to be an amazing pain reliever for people around the world.

The Product

The Hip Hook: $199 (currently on sale for $179!)

I'll be honest—when I first opened the package containing my Hip Hook, I couldn't believe it was $199. It honestly looks like a piece of plastic and I was super confused about how I was supposed to use it. Thankfully, YouTube came to the rescue:

After watching this informative video, I put the Hip Hook to the test! I don't typically have lower back problems, but something I do deal with is hip pain. I'm not sure if my hips aren't aligned or one of my legs is longer than the other—but my hips have always seemed to be my problem area, after my neck and shoulders. The pain there flares up about once a month, and the first time I tried it, I luckily wasn't in any pain.

Even though I wasn't dealing with stress in my hips at the time, using the Hip Hook felt amazing (although it was rather painful at first). I could feel the tension slowly being released out of my body and visibly noticed myself relax. The tool targets the iliacus muscle, which is typically the root of the problem when it comes to tension in the legs, hips and lower back.

These days, since I work from home, I feel like all I do is sit at my desk (and sometimes couch when I need a change of scenery). And since I don't have the world's greatest posture, the Hip Hook has proven to be a lifesaver! I've even convinced my boyfriend to try it out after his rigorous boxing sessions, and he's since used it weekly.

Bottom Line

At about $200, the Hip Hook does not come cheap. However, if you deal with horrible aches and pains in your lower back, hips or legs, this will be a total game-changer for you. And if you're going to spend money on something, shouldn't it be your health?
