Piriformis Syndrome….a real pain in the ass…!
The piriformis is a large muscle in the pelvis and hip area and it often is responsible for the debilitating pain down the leg that results from the irritation of the sciatic nerve.
How can Thrive help?
- Get Treatment! Tui Na massage and acupuncture can both help to reduce the irritation on the sciatic nerve that is caused by the offending piriformis muscle.
- Follow a regimen of exercise! Here at Thrive we can provide you with an exercise regime based on Eastern Body Movement (tai chi and qi gong) that will help you to manage your own discomfort and if performed regularly can prevent this very disabling pain from occurring.
