This will loosen up your leg at your pelvis, allowing your leg to rotate more freely. This treats the Piriformis muscle directly, which covers or encapsulates your Sciatic Nerve.
Just like all Myofascial techniques, doing this will provide a "slack" to all of your body systems (skin, digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, muscular, etc).. allowing everything to move and function at a higher level.
We stand, we walk, we move. Our lower leg gets so tense and overworked but we rarely even notice.
This technique will give some relief to the calf muscles, open up lower leg fascia, and give slack to every cell in your body. When you do Myofascial Release somewhere, your whole body benefits everywhere.
*Try one spot on your calves today, and maybe a different spot tomorrow.
Remember, Myofascial Release Techniques are effective BECAUSE we go gently, and lightly, over a long period of time. Extreme stretching will only produce temporary results, and can do more harm than good.
