thanks for any help.....<br>
------edited to add---<br>
I did this in October<br>
when I ran across some Felt Covering at the Track,(to protect from Football Cleats )<br>
and caught my foot which ''torqued'' my hip,,,,like an idiot I finished the run, but it's been extremely sore ever since...

Lie on your right side, but with torso twisted so that your shoulder blades are touching the floor. Bring left leg up and touch heel to right knee. Put gentle pressure on outside of left leg to bend it towards the floor. Hold this pose for 30 seconds or so. Repeat on opposite side.<br><br>
When driving vehicle ensure your seat back is angled backwards as much as possible to minimize the bend at your hips. This will reduce stress on piriformis.
