  3. you can’t rest your foot on your opposite thigh (figure four) without pain in the hip region.

  1. Place a firm foam roller (available in most sporting good sections) under the glute muscle as seen above.
  2. Gently move your Glute back and forth on the roller looking for tender spots.
  3. When a spot is found, stay still on the area for a 30 second count.
  4. Continue on to other regions of the muscle and repeat as necessary.
