Piriformis Syndrome: Sciatica and that pain in the buttocks!

By February 23, 2016February 11th, 2024No Comments

What is a piriformis? Have you ever had a pain radiating down your leg? How about your buttock region? Spasms? If so this muscle can aggravate the sciatic nerve and cause pain, numbness, and tingling along the back of the leg. If you answered yes there are several ways to assist in its recovery. Watch this simple stretch for many lower body pains. The hip region, and the gluteal region, are happy when performing this particular stretch. I have created my own version that enhances its elongation, and or pin points its landmark. I said basically it freakin works!

What is the quadratus lumborum? It does stabilize and mobilize the spine. It also acts like a hip hiker, as it lifts the hip. It can laterally flex side to side, and helps in extension of the spine (Lumbar) This baby get super tight from the cocktail stance I often refer to. So…try this stretch 2x per day to keep the tightness away!
