Dr. Sarah Duvall | Piriformis Pain

Show Notes:

If stretching the piriformis is your go-to treatment for deep buttock pain… you may want to rethink that!

Listen to today’s podcast as Dr. Sarah Duvall gives us a greater understanding of what we might want to do instead.

In this episode, you’ll gain a greater understanding of piriformis pain and if it is a symptom or a cause of deep buttock pain. Stretching and strengthening might not always be needed for your clients, and we discuss when they might be required and what to do instead. Listen in to hear how pelvic alignment plays a role in how to help release tightness in the deep hip rotators and how abdominal recruitment can be altered.

    A very informative lecture!
    Next time won’t blame the piriformis alone for that Hip pain!
    Thanku Dr Lynn and Dr Sarah!

      Thanks Sheetal. Yes, it’s important to find the root cause of any issue so we aren’t blaming structures that are just trying to support us.

    So excited you have a podcast! Love listening to Dr. Sarah Duvall – one of my favorites! So funny because I was also just listening to her PelviCon replay on posterior pelvic floor muscle tightness! 🙂
