This is Brent, President of B2C Fitness and on
00:00:0200:00:06
this video we're doing our static
00:00:0600:00:10
release techniques for our piriformis. Now, your piriformis isn't a muscle that
00:00:1000:00:13
everybody's going to need to release. I know a lot of people like to go ahead and
00:00:1300:00:16
roll that because it's a fairly easy technique to do, but we need to ensure
00:00:1600:00:21
that we go back to our assessment, and this muscle is actually short and
00:00:2100:00:26
overactive. Remember if we do flexibility techniques we want to make sure that
00:00:2600:00:33
we're lengthening and toning down a muscle that is overactive and short. So,
00:00:3300:00:36
if you are doing the overhead squad assessment, really the major sign that
00:00:3600:00:41
leads you to believe that the piriformis might be overactive is going to be the knees
00:00:4100:00:47
bow out. So, this isn't a totally common thing that we see all the time. For those
00:00:4700:00:51
of you guys doing goniometric assessment, the piriformis can restrict
00:00:5100:00:55
both internal and external rotation. So, if you've released a couple other
00:00:5500:01:00
structures like the TFL, you've done some adductor release, you've done some psoas release,
00:01:0000:01:04
and you're still having problems getting getting rotation back to normal it might
00:01:0400:01:07
be worth going to the piriformis, releasing and stretching to see if you can
00:01:0700:01:13
return normal hip rotation. If somebody complains of SI joint
00:01:1300:01:16
discomfort or pain, there's another reason why you might have to do some
00:01:1600:01:21
piriformis release before looking at the SI joint dysfunction specifically. I'm
00:01:2100:01:26
going to have my friend Leanne come out, help me demonstrate this exercise. First,
00:01:2600:01:30
just a little anatomy lesson so we know where we're releasing. Your
00:01:3000:01:35
piriformis runs from anterior sacrum, to greater trochanter. So, the sacrum is the
00:01:3500:01:41
tailbone, greater trochanter is that big bony thing we feel on the outside of our
00:01:4100:01:45
hips, so it creates a little bit of like a horizontal and slightly diagonal band
00:01:4500:01:50
across the top of our glute complex. Now, there are other deep rotators of the
00:01:5000:01:54
hips, our gemella and obturators, which lie a little bit lower, but we're still going
00:01:5400:01:59
to be on the top portion of our glute complex, so when Leanne goes ahead and
00:01:5900:02:06
sits down on this foam roll, that's where I want her to focus. So, Leanne, go ahead
00:02:0600:02:11
and have a seat here. She's going to go ahead and throw her hands back behind her so
00:02:1100:02:15
she's nice and comfortable. If it's this piriformis I want her to do, I'm going to
00:02:1500:02:19
go ahead and have her put that in a slightly stretched position by putting
00:02:1900:02:25
this ankle and this knee, and then leaning onto her right cheek. So the
00:02:2500:02:29
leg that's crossed is the side that you're doing. Now, first things first, I
00:02:2900:02:33
want to make sure Leanne is not muscle guarding, she's not tensing up to
00:02:3300:02:38
try to protect a very tender spot, so what I might have Leanne do is either
00:02:3800:02:45
pull her knee in and then relax, or might have her push her knee out kind of,
00:02:4500:02:52
contracting her glute and piriformis and then relax completely. Do you feel a bit more? -Yeah. If
00:02:5200:02:56
somebody goes from a contracted position and then relaxes, melts, then they feel a
00:02:5600:02:58
lot more, chances are they were contracting a little bit in their
00:02:5800:03:02
piriformis and glute complex to try to protect. So we want to make sure she's
00:03:0200:03:09
nice and relaxed on the most tender spot. You got the most tender spot?
00:03:1600:03:22
Good. Now, contraindication here, if Leanne starts feeling numbness or
00:03:2200:03:27
tingling there's a good chance she's on her sciatic nerve. Your sciatic nerve
00:03:2700:03:33
runs just underneath your piriformis. We don't want to pinch down on nerves, not that
00:03:3300:03:36
I've ever heard of anybody doing damage with a foam roll, but it's going to be
00:03:3600:03:40
uncomfortable, it's going to create a sensation that people are not going to
00:03:4000:03:44
want to stick with, and we're probably not going to get a good release. So, if by
00:03:4400:03:49
chance she starts feeling tingling or numbness, just have her move a little bit. You can
00:03:4900:03:53
either have them rock this way, remembering that that piriformis is a horizontal band,
00:03:5300:03:57
or just go up and down a little bit.
00:03:5800:04:05
Now, if this was so painful that she couldn't relax, I could regress this a
00:04:0500:04:11
little bit but just having her stick this leg out, and totally relax. We want to
00:04:1100:04:15
stay slightly externally rotated to make sure she stays on that piriformis and
00:04:1500:04:20
those deep rotators. Leanne wasn't having a problem with the other way, so we're
00:04:2000:04:24
going to go ahead and take her back to that original position. If I wanted to
00:04:2400:04:28
progress this a little bit, I could put these muscles more on stretch so that
00:04:2800:04:33
there's less bulk in the way of that trigger point by having her stretch, and hold
00:04:3300:04:40
her knee up towards her opposite shoulder. Now, release techniques aren't
00:04:4000:04:44
anything really all that fancy, it all comes down to putting pressure and
00:04:4400:04:49
squishing a muscle between some bone and some hard object. If we want to increase
00:04:4900:04:53
the intensity all we have to do is either decrease the surface area of the
00:04:5300:04:57
object we're using, or increase force. Since Leanne is using almost all of
00:04:5700:05:01
her body weight on the piriformis at this point, if this was not intense
00:05:0100:05:07
enough for her, we'd go to a smaller object, at which point I might switch to a softball.
00:05:0900:05:13
Now, I will warn you, this isn't quite the normal softball, this isn't a solid
00:05:1300:05:15
softball, there's actually a lot of give, this is one of those training
00:05:1500:05:19
softballs. I find these work really, really well, and also happen to be very portable
00:05:1900:05:23
for those of you who treat in home.
00:05:2400:05:28
She's going to do the same technique, she can search for the most tender spot,
00:05:2800:05:31
make sure there's no numbness or tingling, she can make sure she's not muscle
00:05:3100:05:35
guarding again by either pushing her knee out that way and then relaxing, or
00:05:3500:05:38
pulling her knee in and then relaxing. How is it feeling?
00:05:4000:05:45
-It's intense. It's intense, alright! Once she's found that spot, it's intense, we know
00:05:4500:05:49
she's relaxed, she's just going to hold until she gets a release. That's going to
00:05:4900:05:54
take about 30 seconds, all the way up to 2 minutes, so she's going to need to be
00:05:5400:05:59
in a nice, comfortable position. If she doesn't get a release, that's okay. It's
00:05:5900:06:03
not ideal, but it's okay. Remember that this is a skill that is going to take
00:06:0300:06:06
some practice, and it may take several sessions for somebody to learn how to
00:06:0600:06:10
do this. Ideally in the end, we want to get people feeling those
00:06:1000:06:15
releases so we know those trigger points have been reduced to next to nothing so
00:06:1500:06:18
that we get a huge increase in the quality of their movement patterns over
00:06:1800:06:23
time. I hope you enjoy this video, hope you enjoy the technique. Thank you
