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.

Seriously, I walked in limping with a brace on my first day, and left feeling wonderful, and I kept improving after each visit!!! The exercises and attention from the therapists (Kelsey and Jamie) have helped me tremendously, which has enabled me to become more active than I have in a few years. I am truly grateful for their professionalism and attention to my individual need!! I’m HIGHLY recommend them!!

Rocky Mountain PT has turned out to be an excellent choice in doing my therapy. From the ease of scheduling through the office to the way they make you feel throughout the entire process is great. I had Derrick for the majority of my appointments and he was able to help alleviate so many of the post surgery issues I was having. He was always open ears to how I was feeling and I could tell he has a passion for really trying to "help". From one small business to another its nice to see a company that truly cares. Thank You Derrick!
