Piriformis Syndrome Treatment in Toronto

Piriformis Syndrome Treatment

Piriformis SyndromeA rare disorder, Piriformis syndrome occurs when the piriformis muscle in the buttocks compresses the sciatic nerve. This compression is caused when the piriformis muscle clenches or spasms. The piriformis muscle can compress the nerve during activities like running, climbing stairs or sitting for long periods of time.

The trouble with diagnosing Piriformis syndrome is that its symptoms are similar to those of many other back related problems. However, it may be indicated by:

  • Pain, numbness or tingling in the buttocks (this is usually how the syndrome begins)
  • Pain further extending along the sciatic nerve (down the back of the thigh, calf, and foot)
  • Restricted range of motion of the hip joint
