Pinpoint and Stretch Your Piriformis

The Piriformis muscle is a tiny muscle located deep in the buttocks, underneath the gluteal muscles. When this muscle becomes tight, it causes pain in the buttock region a.k.a.“Piriformis Syndrome” and/or back pain. It can also refer pain down to the back of the leg similar to Sciatica.

In order to stretch this piriformis muscle, sit in a chair, keep your left foot planted, raise your right leg and rest the ankle on your left knee, then lower your chest to your calf.
