Pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve, into low back, hips and buttocks into the leg. Occurs due to an irritation to the sciatic nerve (which runs deep in the buttocks and through the piriformis muscle). Pressure or tightness from the piriformis muscle can cause an irritation to the sciatic nerve resulting in the radiating pain into 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!!
“Big help, great advisors, great customer service!”
I had postpartum hip issue when I first came into RMPT. I’ve had physical therapy before but never believed in it. This time Jason took over my case and after 12 sessions I am back to 100%. Thank you so much for taking such great care of me.
