>Health and Nutrition>Sore Butt
I recently changed my desk/home office situation (been working remotely for months now!).
I've started to feel a tightness in my left hip which has evolved into a deep soreness in that left butt cheek.
It's not 'pain" but a tightness / soreness so I don't think anything is damaged --it feels more like a locked up muscle. And I don't think it's running related (despite a few really long runs recently) but more sitting related.
Anyone know some good stretches or ideas to fix this? I've swapped out my chair and raised up my laptop for better posture so hoping that will address the issue.
I'm thinking Piriformis syndrome maybe? Doesn't really seem to be an IT band issue. Tight glute maybe?
Any suggestions for stretches or methods of attack?
HTFU? Why not!

Sit on a tennis ball on the floor and roll it until you find the spot where it hurts and stay there for a few minutes. It may help release the knot.

Sometimes it get slipped making it difficult to remove the hidden knot. To make it comfortable, you can put the ball into a pair of sock. It will help
