#piriformis

MOST RECENT

First workout post Balboa... 30 minutes on the elliptical followed by 30 minutes of hip/lower body strengthening exercises. When I decided to go on with my run on Saturday, I knew I was risking making my injury worse. But the run was way too meaningful to pass. So I made the conscious decision to run regardless of the consequences.
I’m suffering from piroformis syndrome, the biggest “pain in the butt” for runners. For this reason, I’m dropping out of the half marathon in June. Time to rehab and get stronger. Surprisingly I’m not so bummed about it. I am hopeful I’ll be back in a couple of weeks. Fingers crossed 🤞

Sciatica
Massage is a very success modality for the relief of Sciatica. It mobilises contracted tissues, relieves pain from restricted nerves, improves blood flow and reduces swelling. Let us help you.

My go to stretch when my hips are tight is this modified pigeon. Use your bed, sofa, or anything that’s about hip height. Bend your left leg so your shin is parallel to the edge of your bed. Gently push your knee down so it’s as close to or flat on the bed. Step back with your right foot to intensify the stretch. Hold for about 5 deep breaths and switch legs.

I feel it’s easier to get into than regular pigeon or laying on the floor doing the figure 4 stretch. Plus you can easily control the intensity! Remember a stretch can be uncomfortable but it should never be painful!!

The piriformis muscle is a smaller muscle located on the backside of the hip. -

Why is it important? Location, location, location. -

It is located on top of the sciatic nerve (and sometimes the sciatic nerve actually goes through the muscle). So if the piriformis muscle goes into spasm, it can cause irritation of the sciatic nerve. -

The figure 4 stretch can be used to help decrease tightness in this muscle. Hold the stretch for between 30-60 seconds. -

I love incorporating some pin and stretch movements when addressing the glutes & piriformis. It’s great for really targeting and loosening. After, I always do a hamstring stretch to help target the QL( lower back) but there’s no clip of that here. In the next clip I bring the knee up so that I can REALLY target the piriformis! I like to start by petrissaging and rolling and then trigger point , frictional work and then apply deep pressure with my forearm. @saries05

True Sciatica is caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve at the root. The most common cause is a bulging disc or herniation. The nerve compression is not to be confused with nerve entrapment experienced in piriformis syndrome. Actual nerve compression can cause pain, aching, burning, tingling, numbness or weakness anywhere on the line of the sciatic nerve and I've experienced it all. After 3 natural childbirths (two at home) I can confirm I would give birth 1000 times over before going through this kind of pain 😬
Nerve entrapment in the piriformis more often than not is a result of weak and very tight glutes. Enter ball massage against the wall and waking of the glutes!
This exercise was shared with me via a Friend and comes from @garyward_aim who does some phenomenal work, check out Anatomy in Motion.
I found this exercise was particularly useful in firing my glutes at their end range which would give me almost instant relief but sadly it never lasted as I had actual compression of the nerve but for those with piriformis syndrome this would be a good choice & especially useful in waking up the sleepy glutes. Bonus if you have stairs at home!!!
Have a go in taking the pelvis all the way over the front foot as if you are about to step up onto the next step and feel those glutes fire 🔥🔥🔥 If you feel too much pressure in your knees reduce the reps or perhaps you need a lower loading exercise but give it a try!!

Piriformis Syndrome occurs when the #piriformis muscle is tight, putting pressure on the #sciatic nerve. Symptoms mimic those of true sciatica, but normally the pain doesn't travel all the way down to the heel. Specific #massage techniques can be used to relieve the muscle. Add a few simple stretches to maintain, and clients may find real relief from #pain. .

It is common practice to have your wallet in your back pocket, however, sitting on it for prolonged duration can lead to misalignment of the spine and pelvis. It forces one side of your pelvis to be elevated causing the spine to compensate by tilting towards that lifted side. This position can lead to excessive pressure on one side of the lumbar discs which can potentially compress on the Sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve can also be irritated at the level of the buttock when there is prolonged direct compression by the wallet on the Piriformis muscle (deep muscles of the buttock). Overtime, the tilted positon can cause muscle imbalance by shortening the muscles on the concave side of the curved back making them actively insufficient and vulnerable to muscle injuries.

Yes, it's nice to have a fat wallet but please don't sit on it 😉😊 #back#spine#pelvis#misalignment#muscles#injury#preventativecare#injuryprevention#joints#lumbarspine#physiotherapy#physiotip#muscleimbalance#compensation#sciatica#piriformis#disc#sciaticnerve#numbness#physicaltherapy

Did you know that the piriformis can compress the sciatic nerve and this happens in up to 200,000 cases per year in the US?

The piriformis is a deep and tricky muscle lying on top of the sciatic nerve (and it sometimes is between the sciatic nerve). When it spasms it can send pain down the entire leg. Foam rolling is a great way to relieve tension and in my opinion may be a better preventative option for this condition than a cure. A Cheatham, Kolber, and Lee study found that foam rolling can help increase range of motion with a safe effect on the musculature. Leading to believe this is a safe and easy way to relieve muscle tension. Try this to keep the piriformis mobile and healthy! However, if you already have the shooting pain and spasm be sure to seek the help of a licensed medical provider.

First time back to the Olympic lifts in two weeks and third session in those two weeks. Dealing with Piriformis syndrome hasn’t been fun.

81kg snatch (90%) one miss one make. The miss I didn’t drive hard enough and had a bad lockout glad I dropped it instead of fighting for it. The make I over did the drive which put me out of position and caught it in my toes. Good save but shouldn’t have to chase it. Hang snatches will fix this in coming training.

90kg clean and jerk (90%)
Felt pretty strong clean is getting to feeling less awkward for me.

#treatmenttuesday for our last #musclemonday post yesterday! The piriformis can cause LBP! Try these out giving each stretch a good amount of time but mostly feeling the stretch and knowing intuitively when you’re done. These can be done anywhere at anytime! I do them when I get out of bed and am having back pain. Have a great week everybody!(:
