A Breakthrough for Piriformis Syndrome: SoftWave Therapy in Lehigh Valley

Published December 13th, 2023 by First Choice Chiropractic

Piriformis Syndrome: A Painful Reality

Piriformis Syndrome, a neuromuscular disorder, occurs when the piriformis muscle in the buttocks irritates or compresses the sciatic nerve. This condition leads to pain, numbness, and tingling along the back of the leg and into the foot, often mimicking sciatica pain.

The Pelvis, Piriformis Muscle, and Sciatic Nerve

The human pelvis houses the piriformis muscle, a small, band-like muscle located deep in the buttocks, near the top of the hip joint. This muscle is crucial for lower body movement as it stabilizes the hip joint and lifts and rotates the thigh away from the body. The sciatic nerve, the longest and widest nerve in the body, runs beneath or through the piriformis muscle, extending from the lower back through the buttocks and down the leg.

Understanding Piriformis Syndrome: Causes and Symptoms

Piriformis Syndrome typically arises from muscle spasms, swelling, irritation, or a combination of these factors, which put pressure on the sciatic nerve.

Common Causes Include:

  • Muscle Spasms: Triggered by irritation in the piriformis muscle.
  • Overuse or Injury: Often seen in athletes or after traumatic incidents.
  • Anatomical Variations: Where the sciatic nerve runs through the piriformis muscle.

Symptoms Often Experienced:

  • Pain in the Buttocks: Radiating down the leg.
  • Numbness and Tingling: Along the path of the sciatic nerve.
  • Reduced Range of Motion: Difficulty in moving the hip or leg.
  • Discomfort While Sitting: Especially for extended periods.

Traditional Treatments: Their Limits

Conventional approaches to Piriformis Syndrome often involve physical therapy, medication, or injections. While these treatments can offer temporary relief, they may not effectively address the underlying cause of the nerve irritation.
