    Pain at Top of Buttock Crack When Sitting?

    Pain at top of buttock crack when sitting can be incredibly annoying and can limit every day life.  In todays work culture, we are sitting more than ever.  It has become the new normal to sit for 8+ hours a day.  Being immobile combined with incorrect posture is catastrophic on your muscles in the low back and hips.  This often results in tightness and chronic pain when left untreated.  Fortunately, the muscles causing this pain are treatable right at home.  The three most common culprits for causing tightness and pain at top of buttock crack when sitting are the Piriformis, Gluteus Medius, and Quadratus Lumborum muscles.  Read below on how to master these muscles and get back to living a pain free life.

      

    Where Does Pain At Top Of Buttock Crack When Sitting Come From?

    Pain at top of buttock crack when sitting can be caused in part or completely by tight and weak muscles.  When sitting all day, muscles can become tense and stiff, resulting in strain at the top of buttocks crack and low back. 

    In order to rid your muscles of tightness and pain, you must take action and break up that tight tissue.  The most effective way to do this is through deep tissue muscle massage.  And there is no better tool for the job than the QL Claw.  

    The QL Claw is great for digging into the muscle with maximum comfortability and effectiveness. The QL Claw is uniquely designed to release the Piriformis, Gluteus Medius, and the Quadratus Lumborum muscles.
