Piriformis syndrome causes spasms in the buttock area and is usually accompanied by pain in the lower back, buttocks or legs. When the sciatic nerve is affected by the condition, patients also experience numbness or tingling that can extend down the legs and into the feet. The causes of piriformis syndrome are not well understood; however, it usually directly correlates with one of several related symptoms.

Irritations to or surrounding the piriformis muscles are closely associated with the condition. Areas of concern include the hip muscles or joints, in the form of injury or strain. Bleeding in the muscle is also often observed in sufferers of piriformis syndrome. Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness offers a full range of treatments for piriformis syndrome.

Piriformis Syndrome Treatment

The piriformis muscle is located deep within the buttock, so combination treatments provide the best relief. Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness takes a holistic approach to treating piriformis syndrome. Treating the condition directly may not prove sufficient in permanently eliminating the pain and spasms. It is important to address the patient’s lifestyle habits and create a wellness plan in combination with treatment.
