Piriformis SMFR Foam Roller (Glutes)

Piriformis syndrome is a common problem among the increasingly sedentary world population. It can lead to impairment of optimal movement as well as sciatica and a host of other problems. One way to combat it is to perform piriformis SMFR (Self MyoFascial Release) on the foam roller. You can perform SMFR on your piriformis at the beginning or end of your workouts. If you have especially tight piriformis, make sure you take your time and follow the SMFR with the static piriformis stretch.
