Hip Pain Relief Piriformis SI joint Yoga Tune Up
lastly you need to use your Yoga Tune Up Balls to target powerful muscle call the piriformis. the the piriformis is a major muscle in yourbuttocks. that helps to rotate your thigh bone outwards. The muscle starts right about at your SI joint that's called the sacroiliac joint.
You can find it by looking for the dimples in your sacrum There's a little dimple here on the inner edgeof each buttock. so you take your balls and place it right thereon that dimple and then slowly start to shimmy you hips along the muscle from side to side.
the muscle the piriformis overlies the sciatic nerve and often when people have sciatic nerve painit's because the piriformis is so tight now because you're shimmying and your buttocksdo have some amount of size to them from time to time you're gonna have to resetthe balls because your buttocks are going to be pushing the balls out of the way and one more thing to do to get deeper intothat piriformis is to drop one knee the at a time as you shimmy
and he will definitely need to reset yourballs but oh my goodness this is so incredible What a massage, right into that piriformis.
KT Tape Full Knee Support
Hi I'm Chris Harper and with me is Makayla, and we're here to demonstrate an application for full knee support. You can use this application for patella tracking problems, tendon issues, instability, or general knee pain some causes may include over use, muscle imbalances causing patella tracking problems, or other softtissue injuries such as ligament or minuscule tears KT Tape helps by providing stability, relieving pressure, and improving muscle function for this application we're going to position this knee
in ninety degrees, and we're going to take our first piece of tape, a full strip, and we're going to fold that in half We'll take a pair of scissors and we're going to cut rounded corners around the folded end of the tape what rounding the corners does is to help prevent any catching of the tape on clothing and peeling the tape off prematurely. We're going to twist and tear the backing paper right in the middle of that piece, being careful not to touch the adhesive of the tape
handling it with the paper only we're going to place this with eighty percent stretch, so were going to stretch that all the way and then back that off just a little bit for eighty percent and lay that down, but the very ends of the tape you're going to lay down with absolutely zero stretch so absolutely zero stretch on the ends we're going to take our second piece that we created from that first full strip
peeling that paper back just like the first piece, we're going to apply nice even pressure to eighty percent going just above and over that first piece again we're going to lay those tails down with zero stretch looks good, we're going to take our next piece we're going to twist and tear the paper down by the logo end of the tape to create an anchor point
we're going to measure this from just below the knee cap, aroundthe kneecap, and lay that anchor point up on the quadracep muscle up on the thigh muscle. we're going to remove the paper backing and we're going to apply this with twenty five percent stretch, so if you stretch that all the way and back that off half, and then half again you're going to trace the outer edge of that kneecap with the edge of that tape
as you wrap down around the front of the knee, you are now going to apply fifty percent stretch and then the last bit of tape we are going to lay down with absolutely zero stretch Okay, one more piece we're going to twist and tear thre backing paper down by the logo to create an anchor
Knee Pain With Exercise SURPRISING CAUSE and HOW TO FIX IT
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. Let's talk today about knee pain. If you've been lifting for any length of time,likely you've had some sort of knee pain or might have knee pain in the future if you'renot doing the right things. Guys, knee pain can debilitate your leg workouts.I know. I've suffered from it, and I know what it can do to your legs when you're tryingto squat and especially squat heavy. So, what I want to do today is first of allcover a couple of the reasons what might be causing your knee pain
because that's going to be important to understandthe difference, and then show you one that I think is really common especially for guysthat train and lift weights. So, if we look here, we've got our boy Raymond,and we've got our skeleton, so what you'll see is that in the knee we've got a lot ofdifferent sources of pain. Now you guys have probably heard about ACLpain and MCL pain and LCL, right. Well we're talking about tears really because those are ligaments that get injuredsports most often. The ACL and PCL are inside the knee.
The LCL and MCL are going to be on the insideand outside of the knee, and basically, that's just one source of injury but we've also gotosteoarthritic changes that can happen where you actually get degenerative changeson the bone, the bone on bone area, or on the underside of the patella here that grindsup against the femur. We could talk about that in a second. We alsohave meniscus issues. Guys talk about that. It's the cushion between the two bones here,the tibia and the femur, that gives us that space between the jointthat can wear down or tear. But I find that the most common injury that we get when wetrain,
our inflammatory conditions from overuse ofthe patellar tendon. So, the patellar tendon, this is what you're seeing right here,ok. And what it does is, it runs over the patella,here it holds it in place, and you can get inflammation of this a lot of times causingpatellofemoral issues, we've heard that before, and it impacts thetracking of the patella when your knee goes into flexion extension. So, as we flex the knee and extend the knee,you want normal mechanics of the patella so you get this glide.
And it glides right in this groove right here.You can see that it's supposed to glide right in this groove. But what will happen is, it starts to getout of position. Well, guess whaté This isn't a knee issue. I've talked about this before,this is not a knee issue. The knee is a train, and this is its track.Here, and here. So guess what happens when the track gets twistedé The knee in the train goes flying off thetrack. So, when you start looking and focusing all your efforts on the knee pain and tryingto, you know, cure the patellofemoral issues,
or try to cure your patellar tendonitis, andyou're not paying any attention to the track, you're way off track. So, what you want to do is, you want to startlooking for the source and the cause of your knee pain because most often, 99 percent ofthe time, the source of that is going to be somewhereelse. And when we look at this, it's either going to be the track at the bottom, whichis going to be controlled by your ankle and foot, or, the track at the top which is going tobe caused by, or controlled by the muscles
