Piriformis Syndrome Treatment in Greenville, SC

Piriformis syndrome is a condition that causes pain due to the muscle tightening and irritating the sciatic nerve. Trouble can arise due to the fact that the Piriformis is in such close proximity to the sciatic nerve. The piriformis is one of smaller muscles located deep in the buttocks right behind the gluteus maximus. This muscle runs from the lower spine to the upper femur in a diagonal fashion. It usually sits right about the sciatic nerve. The piriformis muscle assists the hips with rotation. 


Causes of Piriformis Syndrome 

This syndrome can be caused by either sitting for long periods of time or some form of trauma to the buttocks such as an athletic injury, fall, or car accident. This causes the piriformis to expand, swell, and irritate your sciatic nerve. 

Chiropractic treatment can offer many options to treat and heal this syndrome.
