Piriformis Syndrome occurs when the sciatic nerve is irritated by the overlying, tight piriformis muscle. Individuals experience pain in the hip (buttock) area but may also complain of pain in their low back or leg. Physiotherapy is effective by administering therapeutic modalities to relieve pain, applying manual therapy (soft tissue or neural tissue mobilization), prescribing active/gentle stretching exercise to the piriformis muscle and addressing posture through education
