Have you thought about getting help addressing these?

A tight psoas can cause serious postural problems. It pulls the low back vertebrae forward and down toward the femur, often resulting in over extension.
With poor trunk control there are downstream implications.

There is a downstream neuro response. When disorganized at the trunk downstream muscles get tight to protect the nervous system.

Turned out feet causes you to load muscles/soft tissue improperly.  Walking, running, squatting multiple does throughout the day. This can cause things to shut off downstream to protect nervous system.

You need to spend more time using the full range. 5:00 per day isn’t enough.
Flossing, stripping, tack and floss addresses the deep sliding surfaces & stiffness within the system.
Skin sliding surfaces are one aspect.

First you need to address the spine & trunk control.
