What is Piriformis Syndrome?

This is when the piriformis muscle is in spasm and tight, causing intense glute pain.  Many times, this is not the cause but the effect.  something is causing the piriformis to spasm and we need to solve the root cause and identify why it is in spasm

What does Piriformis Syndrome Feel Like?

It will feel like a sharp pain in the glute region and usually people will have increased pain in sitting and with sit to stands.  Sometimes, it can be in spasm enough and tight that it will pinch the sciatic nerve and cause a “pseudo” sciatica

How is Piriformis Syndrome Diagnosed?

  • Glute pain
  • deep glute pain

What is the best way to treat Piriformis syndrome?
