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.
How To Massage Sciatica To Reduce Leg Pain Massage Monday 226
Hi everyone. This is Yasuko and it's timefor Massage Monday. This week I'm going to talk about how to selftreatsciatica or more accurately pseudosciatica using a lacrosse ball or Thera Cane. I oftenhave clients come in with quot;sciaticaquot; issues with a pain shooting down from the hip tothe leg and even numbness in the leg. So what is sciaticaé Sciatica is an inflammation ofsciatic nerve that runs through the hip and down the side of the leg or the back of theleg. The common symptom is the radiating pain from the hip all the way to the leg. Medicallyspeaking it is caused by a pinch of the nerve in the lower back by herniated discs or bonespurs which can be medically treated by a
surgery as a last resort. However, this pain that shoots down the legmay be caused simply by tight gluteal muscles, the muscles in the buttocks, specificallyby the trigger points found in gluteus minimus. Let's call this pseudosciatica because it'snot really sciatica but has the similar pain like the real sciatica and it makes it hardto get up from the chair or stand straight. Trigger Points are the tight spots in musclesthat are stuck in a contracted state and forgot to release. They are sore or painful to touchbut they also cause pain elsewhere called referred pain. This is what I mean. In thiscase, the X's are the trigger points in gluteus
minimus and the red areas are the referredpain. When you loosen these trigger points the pain in the red area will be gone. Thesetrigger points can be created from various reasons such as sitting crooked for a longtime in front of the computer, TV, car, airplane, especially if you keep a wallet in your buttpocket, or from playing sports like tennis, walking, running, swimming, and cycling fora long period of time. To treat the trigger points first find thehip bone. Then go down on the side of the hip to find the greater trochanter which isthe big bump on the top of the thigh bone. The gluteus minimus is located between theselandmarks. It is the deepest layer of the
gluteus muscles. You can also lean side toside and feel the muscles contracting as you lean to the target side. Then put a lacrosseball on the muscle and lean against the wall and roll it over the tight spot for 10 timeswhich should take no more than 20 seconds. You don't want to do it too long because itinvolves some pain and you don't want to bruise the muscle. If you are working on the rightside, stand on your left leg. Or almost lift your right foot to loosen the target muscle.When you massage the muscle should be relaxed and loose so you can dig deeper. As you sawthis muscle gets contracted and tight when you put on your weight on this side. If youhave a pain on the side of the leg, look for
a painful spot more towards the side betweenthe hip bone and thigh bone. If you have a pain in the back of the leg, look for a painfulspot towards the center of the glutes under the hip bone. If lacrosse ball is too hardand painful, you can use a tennis ball. You can also use Thera Cane if you have one.With Thera Cane put the ball on the tip on the gluteus minimus from behind, hold it withboth hands in a comfortable position, lean to the other side, and press on the tightspot for 10 times. BTW if you don't have Thera Cane it's a great selfhealing tool. I'llput the link below. Repeat this treatment three to six times aday every day to see the results. If you tend
to sit in front of the computer for a longtime and if that's causing this problem it's a good way to take a short break because itshouldn't take more than 20 seconds. Remember only do it 10 times at a time. Besides the daily selftreatment I highlyrecommend working with a massage therapist in your area who knows and believes in TriggerPoint Therapy who can treat you and check if you are doing it right. If you have a pain in your body and want tofind out if Trigger Point Therapy can help, let me know and I will cover in the futuretutorials. Holistically speaking I would avoid
4 Ways To Quickly Stop Leg Cramps Foot Cramps With Natural Remedies
My name is Larry Cook and I would like toshare with you four natural remedies that you can use to stop leg cramps and foot crampsright away. Let me start by saying that for quite a few years, I used to get leg crampsand foot cramps all the time, and I went and saw a naturopathic and I found outfrom this naturopathic . Angela Agrios, here in Los Angeles, that I had somecirculatory problems and it never occurred to me what was causing the leg cramps or whatthe issues might be, but we noted down pretty quickly, she noted down pretty quickly andI got on to a supplement plan and did a lot of other things to help build my circulatorysystem. In so doing, the leg cramps and the
foot cramps diminished. However, with thatsaid, I still get leg cramps and foot cramps every now and then, and what I want to doin this tutorial is share with you a little bit about what happens, why we get leg crampsand foot cramps and what we can do to stop those pretty quickly. First of all, like Imentioned, circulatory issues can be one of the causes, and if you have leg cramps orfoot cramps on a regular basis, I really recommend that you go see a naturopathic , getchecked out and see whether or not that's a contributing reason for your foot crampsor leg cramps. Another reason for getting foot cramps or leg cramps should be an electrolyteimbalance or depletion of electrolytes. Electrolytes
are minerals and the three main ones are calcium,magnesium and potassium. If someone goes to the sauna, sweats a lot or exercises, sweatsa lot, you can easily lose a lot of electrolytes, and that is definitely a contributing causeto foot cramps or leg cramps. Finally, another major reason is when there's cold feet orcold legs. That can contribute to leg cramps or foot cramps. If one of the reasons whywe get leg cramps or foot cramps is a lack of electrolytes or electrolyte depletion,then obviously it makes sense to put electrolytes back into the body and I've been using anelectrolyte replenisher for quite some time now, several years, and it's called Ultima.I highly recommend it. I actually met the
rep from Ultima many, many years ago. Theygave me a great story about what they do, no artificial anything. It's all natural andso I've been using it almost every single day and I don't have any tie to them, butI really do like their product, and so if I get a cramp at night and I know that I'veeither exercised really hard that day or I went to the sauna and sweat it, I'll immediatelytake some Ultima and that will definitely help subdue the leg cramp or foot cramp. Ifyou think that there's an electrolyte imbalance and you take an electrolyte replenisher, thatdefinitely is a good idea. That's the first method, and then number 2 would be take magnesium,because magnesium is also not only an electrolyte,
but it calms the muscles. It calms everythingdown, and speaking of calm, a great magnesium supplement on the market is called Calm. Itactually can help you go to sleep as well, so I highly recommend Calm. It gets into thesystem right away. I've been using it for several years and if you want to go to sleepmore easily and if you want to stop leg cramps and foot cramps, give Calm a try. Now thethird remedy I'm going to share with you is a homeopathic remedy. It's called Cuprum.This is what it looks like, Cuprum. It's a homeopathic copper remedy. Now here's theinteresting thing about Cuprum and homeopathic remedies. Homeopathic remedies work at anenergetic level, and when you work at the
energetic level, sometimes it can work reallysuper fast and if you've ever wondered whether or not homeopathy works, here's an experiment.Get a cramp, get some Cuprum, take the Cuprum, take 2 pellets under your tongue, and in about2 to 3 minutes, your cramp will be gone. Tell me that's not amazing, and I guarantee youthat it works most of the time for most people. It works for me. I keep this in my pocketat all times. I can't recommend it enough. I learned it from Angela Agrios and ifyou want to have an instant cramp relief remedy on you at all times, take Cuprum whereveryou go. Now the fourth remedy is a really interesting remedy because I found it in ahealth foods store. I wasn't even looking
