What Causes Piriformis Syndrome?

Piriformis syndrome is characterised by pain in the buttocks and down the leg. The pain is caused by nerve compression by the piriformis muscle, which is located deep in the buttock. This muscle can become tight and inflamed from overuse or injury, and compressing the sciatic nerve that runs from the low-back and all the way down the back of the leg to the foot.

The most common causes of piriformis syndrome are:

  • Running.
  • Cycling.
  • Skiing.
  • Horseback riding.
  • Pregnancy.
  • Obesity.

What Are the Symptoms of Piriformis Syndrome?

The symptoms of piriformis syndrome can vary from person to person. However, most people experience pain in the buttocks and down the leg. The pain may be sharp or aching, and it may worsen with activity. You may also experience muscle spasms, numbness and tingling.

How Can Physical therapy Help Treat Piriformis Syndrome?

Physical therapy is a specialized treatment that uses targeted exercises to help strengthen muscles and relieve pain. Our physical therapists will create a personalized exercise programme for piriformis syndrome.

Not only does laser therapy relax tense and tight muscles, but it also works on a cellular level to regenerate and rebuild strong, organised, healthy collagen fibers preventing future injuries, increasing range of motion and improving quality of life.

Shockwave Therapy

At Dublin Physical & Chiropractic we also offer shockwave therapy for piriformis syndrome, which is a non-invasive treatment that works by sending high frequency sound waves into the piriformis muscle to help relieve pain and inflammation. The goal of shockwave therapy is to get you back to doing the things you love.

Intrinsic Core Strengthening 

Intrinsic core strengthening works by off loading the joints and muscles of our extremities, by distributing stress and load to the core stabilising muscles, that in many cases have become dormant due to pain. Activating the core means balance is restored, and the demands that we put on our bodies to equally distributed and not just all placed on the joints and large muscles.

It can also help to correct any misalignments in the spine that may be contributing to the syndrome.
