Release Your Strength – Sept. 28th, 2010

Today we will release your strength using the TP Massage ball to free the piriformis muscle. This small synergist is an external hip rotator and abductor that when overworked can develop trigger points, leading to altered biomechanics and loss of performance. Injuries associated with the piriformis muscle include: piriformis syndrome, sciatica, hamstring dysfunction, and gluteal and low back pain. After addressing the piriformis, we will then lengthen and strengthen with knee hugs and GRID bridge marches to take advantage of the new range of motion while strengthening the hips and core.
