Piriformis Paradox learning objectives:

On completion of this module you will be able to do the following:

  1. Assess and differentiate between shortness and over-stretching in Piriformis
  2. Devise a treatment plan to address hypertonicity or hypotonicity in Piriformis and Tensor Fascia Latae
  3. Develop a home retraining plan to address the individual clients presenting dysfunction

In this presentation we will explore the misconceptions and overlooked truths about Piriformis and its antagonist, TFL. Understanding the typically dysfunction patterns in these small but influential pelvic muscles will enable you to quickly, safely and effectively target the cause of low back and hip pain and avoid chasing symptoms.

We take a detailed approach to assessment, clear and simple treatment techniques to blend with your existing practice and demonstrate a range of  individualised home care approaches based on clinical findings, to provide real change and lasting results.
