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.

Lower Back Stretches to Relieve Back Pain Ep41
If you feel like your lower back needs a goodstretch after a run, a workout, or even a long day in the office, let me show you fiveof my favourite lower back stretches. Before I get into demonstrating the differentexercises, it's important for me to mention that there are of course different potentialcauses for the tightness in your back. Sometimes the muscles of the lower back gettight and feel like they need stretching as a result of weakness, or to protect a moresignificant injury. It's important that if you're regularlyexperiencing lower back pain and stiffness, that you get a physical therapist to assessyour back and determine the root cause.
That said, let's take a look at these exercisesso you can get started right now. The cobra stretch from the elbows is a gentlyway of working your lower back into extension from topdown, you can then progress to supportingyourself on your hands as your extension improves. Begin by lying facedown on the floor. Bringyour hands palms down in front of your face and press your forearms into the ground tolever your chest off the floor. Be sure to breathe out as you push yourselfoff the ground. When this is easy, you can progress onto workingwith straight arms, pushing only through your hands. This will increase the amount of extensionrequired from your lower back.
Aim for 10 x 10 second holds in the extendedposition. This exercise is particularly good for thosewho suffer from lumbar disc problems. Those who have irritable lumbar facet joints, howevershould avoid it. Child's pose is a fantastic stretch intolumbar flexion, as well as thoracic extension. Begin by kneeling upright. From there sitback onto your heels, and band forward to bring your torso down to the ground. Reach your arms forwards and feel your chestsink downwards to the ground as you breathe out and relax.
Once you're in this position. Maintain thepose for 2040 seconds 35 times This stretch is fantastic to reach musculartightness in the lower back, but should be approached with caution if you know you sufferfrom a lumber disc bulge or prolapse. Knee hugs are a supersimple way of achievinga stretch through the muscles of the lower back, while also working on hip flexion. Lying on your back on the ground, bring bothknees up towards your chest and wrap your arms around them, hugging them tightly. You can do this either with both legs, orone at a time.
Maintain the stretch for 2040 seconds 35times. One of my favourite exercises to work on lumbarstiffness is the simple knee drops exercise. Lying on your back, you can either do thiswith your feet flat on the ground, or with them elevated, making the exercise more difficult. Place your arms directly out to your sides,which will help to keep your shoulders down as you drop your knees from side to side. You should aim to keep your knees and anklestogether as you allow your knees to drop together slowly, with control from the left to theright, and back again.
Aim to do 3 sets of 20 of these knee drops. The Iron cross exercise is a somewhat moreadvanced option, which will not only give you a good lower back stretch, but also inmany cases a lateral hamstring stretch too depending where you're tight. As per the knee drop exercise, spread yourarms out to your sides and aim to keep your shoulders on the ground as you perform thedrill. From there keep one leg relatively straightand kick the other leg across towards the opposite hand.
