We often get asked for different techniques and ways that patients can work with their spouse, partner or person at home to help them get these really deep stretches. Piriformis is one of my absolute favorite muscles, it goes from your hip bone to your tailbone. It's not a very big muscle, but it plays a BIG role because the sciatic bundle runs under it. You are going to place your hand, or your can use a thumb, and fall down off the bone, tuck right up under the buttock. The person will know, they will feel it, and then you can bring them outward, stretching the muscle. If you want to fatigue the muscle you can have them turn into your hand, and push for 3, 2, 1 and relax. The biggest thing is that you do not pull too hard where you are doing damage or it's hurting, otherwise this should feel pretty good!
We're going over stretches for your hip flexor, your iliopsoas. This is a really important muscle that starts here in your groin, attaches to your pelvis and keeps going. It can be very helpful with low back pain, hip flexor pain, and sciatica related complaints.
Dr. Jesse, our female chiropractor specialist is talking about disc herniation. What it is, is the soft tissue between your vertebrae that squishy part - and it pushes outward usually due to flection. It pushes on the nerve roots which end up referring down your leg creating a lot of pain and muscle spasms. We are going to show you a few different maneuvers that can help. This is not direct medical advice but it could help with your symptoms and help you heal.
