Piriformis Syndrome

Piriformis Syndrome


What is it?

Piriformis syndrome occurs when the piriformis muscle compresses the sciatic nerve. The piriformis muscle is located deep in the buttocks near the hip. It assists in stabilizing the hip when the hip is in motion. The sciatic nerve is a long thick nerve in the body that passes through the piriformis muscle and down the back of the leg.

I completed a six week internship with RMPT, part of which I was with Rob in the Loveland office. Rob is an extremely knowledgeable, professional, and caring DPT. I thoroughly enjoyed my time learning the trade from him. I highly recommend this office for your physical therapy needs. -Chelsey, Loveland (Google Review 5stars)

I recently completed a six week internship with RMPT. I spent most of it with Amie and Jess in the Windsor clinic. They both are extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, and well rounded. I highly recommended using RMPT for all of your therapy needs. Chelsey, Windsor (Google Review 5stars)
