Posterior hip and thigh muscle tension

I had a regular client walk into my office today with a complaint of proximal posterior thigh and hip tension when kneeling and bending over. I subsequently assessed and treated the client with deep tissue techniques on the  Gluteus maximus, upper and lower leg muscles and deep lateral hip rotator muscles ( Piriformis, Superior gemellus, Inferior gemellus, Quadratus femoris muscles). Once the superficial legs gained adequate softening and pliability, I utilized friction techniques to loosen and break adhesions involving said muscles. The client expressed  that there was a decrease in muscle tension and increase in range of motion in the post treatment assessment.
