Personal trainer, Kai Wheeler out of San Diego, CA shows you a myofascial release technique along with a few stretching poses to relieve hip, lower back and buttock pain. Trigger points in the piriformis can impinge the sciatic nerve sending pain signals to the aforementioned areas. Common misdiagnoses of piriformis dysfunction are sciatica and herniated disk. If you are someone who feels discomfort in the hip, lower back or buttock while sitting, walking and running, give this release a try!!!
