Effect of Hip Rotation Stretch on the Piriformis Muscle: A Pilot Study

Abstract

Objectives: The objective of the current study was to examine, using diagnostic ultrasound (US), the effect of stretching the piriformis muscle into medial and lateral rotation in varying degrees of hip flexion on the thickness at the muscle tendon unit of the piriformis muscle. Background: Passive stretch is commonly used to assess piriformis muscle length… (More)
