Tensor Fascia Lata (TFL) SA Static Release

Tensor Fascia Lata (TFL) SA Static Release is an effective, non-surgical treatment to relieve chronic pain associated with the Tensor Fascia Lata (TFL) muscle. It is used to improve mobility and range of motion and aid in the prevention of future injuries. It can be used to treat a variety of conditions including lower back pain, hip pain, hamstring strains and tightness, sciatica and leg pain. This safe and effective therapy involves a

We're going to go through step one of the
00:00:0300:00:09
B2C Fitness lateral leg release progression.
00:00:0900:00:15
So, step one of our lateral release progression is to statically release the TFL.
00:00:1500:00:21
I'm going have Rick step in and help us demonstrate this self-administered release technique.
00:00:2100:00:29
First off, the TFL runs from ilium, right, so our iliac spine really, the top of your
00:00:2900:00:32
hip bone, to your greater trochanter where your hip joint is.
00:00:3200:00:37
So right between that, on the anterior aspect of your hip.
00:00:3700:00:42
So this triangle here, right about where your front pocket is, is where your TFL resides
00:00:4200:00:43
so to speak.
00:00:4300:00:49
I'm going to have Rick lay on a foam roll, on his TFL, to start releasing this.
00:00:4900:00:55
We can use either a foam roll, medicine ball or soft ball as somebody progresses, or gets
00:00:5500:00:57
deeper and deeper into the muscle.
00:00:5700:01:02
So, Rick, let me have you go ahead and lay down here.
00:01:0200:01:08
He's going to keep the leg he's releasing relatively straight and soft, and then use
00:01:0800:01:09
this leg for support.
00:01:0900:01:18
I'm going to have him roll both forward and back, as well as up and down to find the most
00:01:1800:01:20
tender spot within the muscle where that trigger point resides.
00:01:2000:01:23
Usually those are in the middle of our muscle belly.
00:01:2300:01:29
He's then going to hold statically on that point without movement in a relaxed position
00:01:2900:01:33
for at least 30 seconds, or, ideally, until he finds release.
