Detailed Instructions For 
Pelvic Girdle Pain Relief

Bones Of The Pelvic Girdle

For our purposes think of your pelvic girdle being made up of 3 large pieces of bone: the sacrum (tailbone) and your two ilium (hip bones). Sections 2, 3, and 4 above are all one piece of bone. Thus, affecting any area by releasing a tight muscle can dramatically affect your entire pelvic girdle..
Above: 1. Sacrum, 2. Ilium, 3. Ischium, 4. Pubic bone, 5. Pubic symphysis, 6. Acetabulum, 7. Obturator foramen, 8. Coccyx

Video 1 of 4 - "Sports Ball" Release of Hips



Here's what we are going to do:

Do the tennis-ball-press technique on any painful/tight/tender tissue you find in your buttocks.

Make sure to investigate both sides. I generally will do one side at a time going from bottom to top, but whatever method you choose just do a thorough job. This alone could immediately relieve your pain, so do a good job.

Video 2 of 4 - Lower Back, TFL Release



Here's what we're going to do:

A. Inner Spinal Muscle Release -

Lie on your back and place a tennis ball under your low back, right next to your spine where your lower back meets your hip bones. Let your bodyweight press on the tennis ball and notice any tender spots from the top from the lowest part of your lower back all the way up to your lowest rib, which is about 4 to 6 inches.

When you find a tender spot, lift your leg that is on the same side of your spine as the ball. If you lift your leg enough you should feel the muscle tissue under the ball move. Lift and lower your leg a few times and you should feel the tight tissue release as the spot becomes less tender.

Do This same motion all the way up to your lowest rib, and then repeat this process on the other side. Notice the movements that your body seems to like for each spot, it's the "Oh, that's a good one!" feeling. It's not just pain, it's the feeling of tension that needs to be released and you're on it, so stick with it for a few seconds.

Again, move your leg, flex and relax, twist your spine while the ball presses on the muscles. When you feel the muscle move under the pressure of the ball then you know you're doing it properly.

Notice how much pelvic girdle pain relief this specific technique provides.

B. Outer Spinal Muscle Release -

Now, reposition the tennis ball 2 to 3 inches from your spine. Repeat the process you just did in Step 1A with this area. Do both sides of your spine. Yes, you might be re-doing some your low back muscles, but if they're still tight then they could use a little more work.

Repeat this same process on the other side of your back.

Notice how much pelvic girdle pain relief this technique provides.

C. Tailbone Release - Now to the tennis-ball-press technique on your tailbone. Locate some tight tissue, and then use your bodyweight to press the tennis ball into the spot. Then do the press-hold-move technique by moving your leg so that your tailbone moves under the pressure being applied by the tennis ball.

Notice how much pelvis pain relief this technique provides.

Notice overall how effective Step 1 has been at providing the pelvic girdle pain relief you are seeking.

D. Outer Hip (Tensor Fascia Latae) Tennis Ball Release -

Take a moment to locate the outer and upper most edge of your hip bone. If you poke your fingers into the tissue just below, that is your Tensor Fascia Latae muscle that can pull your hip down and out of position if it is tight.

Put a tennis ball on the floor and lie on it so it presses directly into your Tensor Fascia Latae Muscle. While keeping the ball pressing into one tender spot at a time, do the press-hold-move technique.

Do both sides of your body.

Video 3 of 4 - Hip Stretch and ASSESS



Here's what we're going to do:

A. Reclined Hip Stretch
Lie on your back, with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Cross one leg over the other so your ankle is resting on the knee of the other leg. Now, with one hand grabbing the ankle that is resting on your knee and your other hand grabbing the knee of that same leg, pull that leg toward your chest.
You will feel this pull on all those muscles in your buttocks that you were just releasing with the tennis ball. Pull on your leg, then let go a bit, pull again, relax a bit, and you'll feel the muscles stretch a bit each time you do this. Do this for a minute or so. Do the same thing on the other side. Then go back to the first side. Alternate sides a few times and you'll notice improvement as you return again to either side and stretch it.

B. Seated Hip Stretch
Hip Stretch 2 - Sit on the floor with you one leg bent at a 90 degree angle in front of you, and the other leg at a 90 degree angle behind you. Lean forward over your front shin and notice that you'll feel a stretch deep in your buttocks. You do NOT want to feel this stretch in your knee, so if you do feel it in your knee then move your foot higher or lower so you do not feel it in your knee.
Lean over your knee, then shin, then ankle and notice the different areas you feel being stretched. Most likely you'll feel the deepest stretch when you lean over you ankle. Do this stretch on one side for a minute or so, then switch to the other side. Do three sets, at least, before moving on.

C. Twisted Hip Stretch
Sit on the floor with legs out straight in front of you.
Cross one leg over the other and bring the ankle of the top leg to where it rests on the outside edge of your opposite knee (or as close as you can get).
Now take your hand on the same side of your body as your bent leg and put it behind and out to the side a bit on the floor to support yourself.
And then take your elbow on the side of your body with the straight leg and reach it over your bent knee.
Now press your elbow into your knee so you feel a stretch in your buttocks.

Do both sides of your body about three times.

Video 4 of 4 -
Release The Front Of Your Back



Here's what we're going to do:

Inner Hip Release

We're going to release a muscle called your iliacus the attaches to the inside of your hip bones. It's a muscle, just like any other muscle, so when it's tender it means it's too tight. When you release it you may find it's your instant lower back pain remedy.

Lie on your back with your knees up and your feet flat on the floor. Reach down and find your hip bone at the lower side of your abdomen. Come to the inside of your hip bone and press on the muscle tissue that attaches to the inner side of your hip bone. From the top of your hip bone all the way down to your pubic bone press on the muscle tissue and notice any tender spots. Do the press-pull-release technique combined with the hand-on-hand technique on any tender areas.

You can also cross one leg over the other or let your leg hang out to the side to get different angles of access to some areas (as shown in the video).

Repeat this entire process on the other side of your body.

Notice how tender the tissue was in this area and how much pelvic girdle pain relief or other symptom relief you experience from doing this inner hip release.

Side of Spine Release

Next in line is a muscle called your psoas that runs down the sides of the front of your spine. It too is a common cause of lower back pain. It's a very strong muscle so releasing it is often the lower back pain remedy you've been looking for.

While still lying on your back with your knees up and your feet flat on the floor, take the tips of your fingers and find your pubic bone. Move up about an inch from your pubic bone and about an inch to one side of your midline (your belly button is a good midline marker) and gently but firmly press into your belly.

Now "tuck your tailbone" up and down a little bit. It's important that you do NOT engage (tighten) your abdominal muscles while you do this or you'll push your fingertips out of your belly. It seems to help if you push into your feet just a bit when you tuck as it seems to make it easier not to engage your abdominals.

Try to find the place where you can feel your psoas muscle moving under your fingertips. It may or may not be tender where you are pushing but I want you to at least locate the psoas muscle by making it move.

Now you just do the press-hold-move technique with a modified hand-on-hand technique to release your psoas muscle on both sides.

Watching the video for this technique should clarify much of this written description.

Notice how much tension you found in this area and how much pelvic girdle pain relief you experienced from doing it.
