NAKED PHYSIO // ACHILLES PAIN

ACTIONS: To stabilise and externally rotate the hip
ORIGIN: Greater trochanter
INSERTS: Sacrum (lower back)⁣

Did you know that 20% of people’s sciatic nerve runs through this muscle? Because of that, a tight one of these muscles can cause some pain radiating down the leg.

THE STRETCH: ⁣
– Place the outside of your ankle on top of your opposite knee
– Bring this knee to your chest
– Hold for about 20 seconds and repeat on each side, left & right

Happy running!
