PIRIFORMIS SYNDROME is a pain in the butt. No; literally it’s a pain in the butt. And those of you who have been through it realize that it’s no laughing matter. When the Piriformis Muscle (see pictures below) puts pressure on the Sciatic Nerve, ugly things can happen. Although there are many reasons that this pressure can occur at the Piriformis Muscle, two of the most common are FASCIAL ADHESIONS & TENDINOSIS. Julie’s Piriformis Syndrome was the typical female scenario: it started after the birth of her first child several years ago. Thomas’s case was a bit different. He was hit in the butt by a large tree limb and has struggled with buttock pain and Sciatica (pain in the leg) ever since. The limb literally ‘exploded’ his fascia!
