I'm seeking advice on glute activation. My wife suffers very bad back, hip and sciatic pain after running and (more recently) walking. She was referred to a physio but with the current situation this keeps getting pushed back so we're relying on self-diagnosis and treatment. We think it's a result of poorly developed glutes and have found glute activation exercises.
When is the best time to do these exercises? As a warm up before running/walking or as part of daily routine? Many people recommend stretching after exercise but I've personally found this to cause more problems and have found that stretching throughout the day is more effective.
My wife is desperate to exercise, any advice will be gratefully received.
Thanks in advance,
