Piriformis Stretch[1]

Benefits of exercise:

  • Helps maintain or increase the length of the buttock muscles.

Repetition recommended:

  • 4 times on each side.


  • Maintain neutral spine throughout movement – if your trunk "sags" during the exercise, slightly bend the knee of the leg that remains extended out on the floor.

Ask your Rheumatologist for biologics that slow down spinal fusion.
