Posterior Hip SA Myofascial Creep

0

Posterior Hip SA Myofascial Creep is a type of myofascial release technique designed to address tension, tightness, and adhesions in the gluteal and surrounding soft tissue. Developed by Bruce Simmonds, it combines gentle and specific sustained pressure with an intermittent holding to target the hip, gluteus medius, and other deep gluteal muscles. The technique is often used to decrease low back, hip and pelvic pain caused by muscular imbalance and

This is step 3 of the B2C Fitness self-administered
00:00:0300:00:10
release progression for the posterior hip.
00:00:1000:00:15
So we've already done a self-administered release of the piriformis statically, and
00:00:1500:00:16
then actively.
00:00:1600:00:21
Now we're going to add myofascial creep, which was a technique introduced to me by Scott
00:00:2100:00:26
Mitchell, the inventor of The Relaxer.
00:00:2600:00:27
I'm going to have Rick Richie help me demonstrate.
00:00:2700:00:29
He's going to assume the same position that he did for the static and active release of
00:00:2900:00:33
the pirifomis, except this time we're going to set up one of those incline rolls.
00:00:3300:00:39
We're going to put one foam roll on another, this is going to help up create a medial to
00:00:3900:00:40
lateral sheer force.
00:00:4000:00:47
Once he finds the most tender point in his posterior hip, I'm going to have him slide,
00:00:4700:00:54
or let himself slide so that that skin and the fascia that's underneath it gets pulled
00:00:5400:00:58
from his sacrum, toward his greater trochanter.
00:00:5800:01:03
This'll help un-adhere the fascia from the muscle below it.
00:01:0300:01:07
For anybody with lumbo pelvic hip complex dysfunction or SI joint dysfunction,
00:01:0700:01:09
this can be very helpful.
00:01:0900:01:13
Rick, how does that feel? -I think it's working.
00:01:1300:01:16
Great. It's usually only a couple of centimeters somebody's going to slide, usually after about
00:01:1600:01:20
20 or 30 seconds they'll get a release which will be a little increase in the amount of
00:01:2000:01:21
sliding they get.
