Piriformis syndrome


Findings

Similar to the hamstring syndrome but no ischial tenderness is palpable. It may be worse with resisted, external rotation of the flexed hip, or passive, internal rotation of the flexed hip.

Cause

The sciatic nerve is compressed between the gemelli or, as a variant, passes through, as opposed to beneath, the piriformis.

Treatment

Adverse neural tensioning and, possibly, a cortisone injection of the piriformis origin at the sacrum may help. Surgery to free the nerve.

Actually, this injury is extremely hard to diagnose. An injection of steroid over the inferior border of the sacrum, close to the notch, may help this type of sciatic pain.

Thank you for your story. It does help to know you’re not alone with this. Everything you describe is exactly what I am experiencing. I’m hoping his are gentle treatments as was yours.
