A great glutes and
A great glutes and piriformis strengthening routine to stabilize the hips and lower back. You'll need a resistance band. These exercises will help you get relief from piriformis and glute pain but only if you take things slow and do them with proper form. Make sure to follow these instructions:
1. Don't push beyond pain. If the piriformis muscle is irritated, start with some foam rolling release of the quads, psoas and TFL.
2. Pick 2 exercises first and see how your body responds to them. Stay below the pain threshold. So if doing 7 repetitions is fine but going beyond that triggers pain, stick to 7 repetitions.
3. Keep your core and glutes engaged at all time.
4. Take enough break in between sets to make sure your nervous system recovers and you're not fatiguing your muscles and as a result, compensating with the piriformis.

OMG ... so I’m thinking these exercises really help me to confirm piriformis syndrome as the root of my pain. The first 2 exercises don’t hurt, but I can really feel it in my standing leg. The third where you swing the leg to the front and back showed me how weak I am in that area. I couldn’t even finish 10 reps. The mistake PTs have made with me is overall body strength, which I do have already, but apparently I need to focus in this area. But also they spent all my time stretching my hamstring which I think has actually hurt me. Dynamic stretching seems okay, but the static stretching is not good for me. They said I would become more flexible, but the fact is that after stretching for many years I am still not flexible and never will be. So my plan now is to do these exercises daily, and try to build up to the 10 reps of the one I have trouble with. Thank you for all you do! ?
I'll definitely try this
Should you always do these exercises on both sides? I mean training the side that hurts would make it worse wouldnt it?
Would you suggest hip thrusts?
Finally! Someone who understands that the pain is coming from OVERSTRETCHED piriformis...thanks for the much needed exercises!!!
