Technique Highlight: The Corkscrew Hamstring/Sciatic Tensioner


I thought of this technique to improve several hip common hip dysfunctions as a progression in force and treatment. It improves


  • hip IR
  • hamstring mobility
  • sciatic neurodynamics
  • SLR
Common dysfunctions this technique helps

  • recovering hamstring strain
  • peripheral neuropathic pain from sciatic entrapment
  • piriformis syndrome
  • lumbar derangement with LE complaints
  • hip capsular pattern
I use it as a end of week 2 progression, as in, if you use this on a patient too soon, it will probably be too aggressive and you've just lost a patient and a possible referral source. I will post a follow up for home program stretching later. Hope the technique helps with your patients/clients!
