I’d like to share my latest stretching exercise video with you. This is a top notch exercise for stretching out the Gluteal muscles of the buttock area. It’s also somewhat helpful if you suffer from a piriformis muscle issue such as a “piriformis spasm”. Your Chiropractor may have even told you that you have a painful condition known as “Piriformis Syndrome” which can send radiating symptoms down one of your lower extremities thus mimicking a lumbar disc herniation. This #GluteStretch could be somewhat helpful for #PiriformisSyndrome too.
We can also perform a variation of this #exercise which is excellent for targeting the calf muscles and stretching the hamstrings to some degree as well.
If you have any questions for me about this exercise, please feel free to either comment here, comment below this video directly on Youtube or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
As always, if you’re not sure if you should be doing this stretch or not, please consult your Doctor of Chiropractic or other healthcare provider first.
