Discussing the Piriformis muscle (again)…layering, false interpretation, and the search for abnormal tension
Please excuse my ongoing obsession with this small pelvic muscle, but I feel that nowhere else in the body has some much emphasis placed (in the MSK world) in the midst of such poorly thought out assessment procedure and/or interpretation. Here I discuss the logic behind the F.A.P. method of accessing/palpating the structure, parlaying into suitable treatment technique using F.R. Release. Also discussed is the proper interpretation of limited internal rotation, and the palpation of “abnormal” tissue tension.
