Not only that, the piriformis and quadratus lumborum are difficult muscles to palpate, leaving you feeling hesitant and uncertain in your treatment plan.

"At times, Peggy's back was toward the camera so it was difficult to see what she was doing. The camera was rarely on the slides so it was difficulty to follow along with certain segments of the presentation."
