|Comment||Greg, Thanks for answering my question promptly. You reply wasn't exactly what i was hoping for, but then again this is a free service. The lying stretch you were describing, stretches the external rotators of the thigh and I initially thought that you were wrong in that this would stretch the gluteus medius, since I always thought the glute medius only abducted the thigh and internally rotated it. You were right, though, because the posterior fibers of the gluteus medius externally rotate the thigh. (hard for me to wrap my head around this fact)Thought i was only really stretching the piriformis before. I liked how you added the contract/relax stretch to trick the muscle to increase Rom. The tightness has subsided somewhat and its feeling better. Thanx!|
