Roller Massager+ Elongated Glutes and Piriformis Release

Self-release of the gluteal and piriformis muscles; elongated position

Roller Massager+ Elongated Glutes and Piriformis Release
Stand facing a ledge or step, with foot (of leg with buttocks to be rolled) propped up in front of body. Stance leg is slightly bent and propped knee either faces directly toward the ceiling or turns in slightly toward other side of body. Grasp both ends of the Thera-Band Roller Massager+ so that ridged roller is positioned diagonally across buttocks of the propped leg and gently roll the Massager+ back and forth along the path of the glutes and piriformis. In general, longer strokes in this elongated position will work more superficial layers of the tissue. To further elongate muscles, prop foot on higher ledge. Conversely, lower foot height to decrease stretch placed on muscles.

NOTE: See “Roller Massager+ Shortened Glutes Release” for a positional variation.
