12. Piriformis Strentch

Piriformis stretch

From the neutral position lying on your back, lift your right leg, drop the knee outwards and place the right ankle on the left knee. Clasp your hands around the back of your left thigh and draw the thigh towards you. (You can also do this by looping a towel around the back of the thigh and pulling on it.) Hold this position for about 30 seconds, feeling the stretch up your right thigh into your buttock. Relaxing while you do this will help to reduce any discomfort.
