10 Piriformis Stretches To Help You Get Rid Of Sciatica, Hip And Lower Back Pain

Below the piriformis muscle, it is located deep in the buttock. Sciatica pain and irritations can also be caused by swelling.

From the spine to the top of the femur the piriformis muscle is connected, it is the main muscle that supports the movement of the upper leg, the hip, and the foot.

Sciatica symptoms can be caused if this nerve goes through the sciatic nerve, this is known as the piriformis syndrome. It is characterized by poor movement, loss of balance, and a lot of pain in the back and the hips.

Constriction of the piriformis muscle is the main cause of sciatica, but there are other things that it can be caused from.

In many cases from this syndrome, the sickness and pain are treated with a lot of medications like acetaminophen, aspirin, physical therapy, NSAIDs or even surgery. It may also be treated with painkillers, muscle relaxants, etc.
