    Sitting for hours at your work desk or in a classroom can cause weakness and stiffness in your buttocks that can make them feel saggy. Take a quick break and stretch your legs and hips, especially your hamstrings and piriformis. The hamstrings are a group of muscles in the back of your thighs, and the piriformis is a small muscle deep in your buttocks that assist in rotating your hip and turning the leg and foot outward.

    Relax a Pulled or Sore Muscle: RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, & Elevation). Gently stretch after the most sever pain is gone to prevent stiffness. Take ibuprofen to alleviate pain & swelling, for 2-5 days after injury. Try analgesic cream like Tiger Balm to relieve pain. Soak in hot bath 3-4 days after injury as moist heat brings oxygen to tissues & loosens muscles (even better w Epsom salt). Don't put heat on muscle till after the 1st 24-48 hrs, but instead use ice to reduce swelling.
