      • Pso-Rite was created out of necessity. The founder had lower back pain affecting his work and everyday life. He was going to a therapist 2-4 times a week to help with this problem. After a couple of weeks, he realized the root problem came from his hip flexors muscles, mainly the PSOAS muscles. Going to a therapist 2-4 times a week wasn't realistic, so he needed to create a product that mimicked his therapist's hand, allowing him to perform the PSOAS massage any time of the day.
