LOVE all these stretches...when I 1st started running I didn't believe in stretches, then, I got hurt. My hips were hurting bad, I couldn't walk a step without my hips hurting. Went to the dr, recommended to see a physical therapist and all the stretches you see here are the same stretches I got recommended to do by my PT.
Great job posting! Report
I really like the piriformis stretches. It's the only stretch that helps my pirifomis syndrome. Report
I was told in Health & Fitness class in college that you should do the stretches after you warm up and doing some of these at the end of your workout could cause injuries I would be careful about what you do after your workout. Report

This was the best article for my minor complaints; my sciatic nerve & inner left thigh pain, & lower back pain. I try a few Yoga poses, child's pose, hero rising, up&down dog with a few others that I have practiced.

I saved them to my collection, I would like to add them, as well as those yoga stretches to a regular routine; at least a once weekly routine. Well, provided my allergies & other stressful ssituations will allow me. Does that make since? Anyway I need to Keep up with these, cause my tail bone aches in real bad weather and sometimes my tailbone aches just to ache, probably from injuries which are numerous. Report
