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.
Top 3 Exercises for SI Joint Pain
Straighten the left leg down and bring theright knee up. What you are going to do is interlock your fingers like this and pushyour knee down into your hands. This is called a single knee to chest isometric and whatit does is it actually uses muscles in your rear to rotate your pelvis. Great for people thathave pain on either side of the back, right here on either side of the tailbone. In CentralPennsylvania, many times people call it their sciatic and what they mean is theirsacroiliac but it helps move the pelvis. What we do here is we push down into the hands.5 second hold and in our we do it 10 times. This is a ball squeeze but we are going todo it with core stability and a core isometric.
Many times when we are talking about the core,a lot of people will do crunches. I don't think we have ever had a patient that we haveever helped to focus their exercise program on crunches. What we are going todo here is you are going to slightly arch your back and the way that you do that isyou stick your bottom into the mat, into the table. Slightly arch, pull your belly buttonin and up. Do you feel how that gets tight right thereé Then we are going to add a ball.You are going to slightly arch your back, pull up and in and this is about a 50% contraction.It is not all out, you are not bearing down, you are not trying out for the Olympicgames. We are just getting a little
contraction there. Slightly arch, pull thebelly button in and up and then squeeze the ball at the same time. It is actually fourthings. Arch the back, pull the belly button in and up and squeeze the ball and number fouris remember to breathe. As we are doing this it is going to be a 10 second hold, 10times. This exercise is core isometric with Theraband,a red piece of Theraband. You can also use Theratubing. Red is the lightest and youcan progress up through green, blue, black and there is a heavy grey band as well.Just about anything will work. The idea is this: you are using this movement and theband to challenge the pelvis and the low
back. We want stability here as we are firingthe muscles down here. Slightly arch the back, pull the belly button in and up andthen spread the knees and then back together. In the , we do 20 of those and you canbuild up to 30 or you can do more than that. If it is too difficult in the beginning, backit down to 10 or 15 times.
