Trigger point that is very helpful for people with lower back/hip pain.

Here’s a video of me showing you guys how to release two points in the hip that can severely limit your body’s mobility, Gluteus Minimus and Gluteus Medius. Its through the action (or non-action) of sitting all day long that create tightness in the hip flexors. If your hip flexors are tight, your Gluteus maximus (opposing muscle to your hip flexors) become inactive and can no longer function correctly. This usually leads to other muscles having to compensate for this muscular dysfunction. In this case we are going to focus on the Gluteus Minimus and Gluteus Medius. By releasing these tissues and allowing the hips to have proper alignment, we are going to allow the Gluteus Maximus to function at a higher rate. If you have any further questions, feel free to e-mail me at naudi@functionalpatterns.com.

Enjoy!!!

    Thank you so much for your post. For two days I have had the worst pain in my lower back. At first I thought it was a back pain and then realized it was actually a muscle cramp. Experience with leg cramps told me to stretch – which helped a bit – but didn’t really do the trick; neither did massaging the area. So I turned to the internet and you were the first result. Your tennis ball maneuver did the trick. I’m still a bit sore but not doubled over in pain. A million thanks to you for taking the time to post this.
