Piriformis syndrome

Similar to sciatica, piriformis syndrome can irriate the sciatic nerve causing pain, tingling and numbness within the leg and foot. The biggest factor to treating piriformis is stretching. The irritation of the muscle causes a tightening that results in spasms. By loosening the hamstrings, hip muscles, and piriformis your range of motion will be restored allowing the muscles to heal.
