💥PARIFORMIS SYNDROME & SCIATIC PAIN💥
Your piriformis muscle has 2 main functions. First, it helps enable your hip to rotate. Second, your piriformis muscle allows your leg and foot to turn outward.
✳️WHY DOES IT HURT?✳️
Piriformis syndrome is defined as a condition in which your piriformis muscle spasms and causes pain in your buttock. This spasming may also aggravate a nearby sciatic nerve root, which in turn sends sciatica-like symptoms racing down your large sciatic nerve.
There are a number of possible reasons your piriformis muscle may spasm, including:
1️⃣The irritation of your piriformis muscle or your sacroiliac joint
2️⃣An injury that causes your piriformis muscle to tighten
3️⃣An injury that causes your piriformis muscle to swell
4️⃣Bleeding in the area around your piriformis muscle
Common symptoms of piriformis include:
1️⃣A dull pain in your buttock
2️⃣Increased pain when walking up an incline
3️⃣Increased pain after sitting for long periods of time
4️⃣Pain, tingling, or numbness in your thigh, calf, or foot
Symptoms felt along your large sciatic nerve are not catergorized as sciatica. This is because your piriformis muscle is not located in your lumbar spine, but rather your buttock.
Stretching the Pariformis will help relieve some of the pain and increase mobility in the hips. Scroll to check out some stretches.
