If you have a job that requires you to sit for eight hours or more, you’re at a high risk of developing piriformis syndrome. Piriformis syndrome is a condition that affects the large muscle on both sides of your buttocks. Persistent pressure on the piriformis muscle stresses it out and leads to pain in your rear end that radiates down to your legs and up to the lower back. While you may not switch jobs, you can learn ways to prevent piriformis syndrome and reduce your risk. When you seek treatment from the pain management experts at Redefine Healthcare, your recovery includes instructions for managing this condition. Schedule a consultation today.

Piriformis syndrome develops when the piriformis muscle, located in your buttocks near the hip joint, compresses the sciatic nerve that runs from your lower back down your leg. This compression occurs due to spasming or contracting the piriformis muscles or from injury and swelling.
Piriformis syndrome develops gradually, usually because of repetitive movements like sitting for long periods or working a job that continuously requires twisting, bending, or lifting heavy loads.
Bone spurs and herniated discs in your spine can lead to the condition, as well as obesity and diabetes. It can also develop after a traumatic event, such as a car accident or sports injury.

Absolutely outstanding! I’ve received cervical and lumber epidural injection treatments from Dr Freeman and the success and care I have repeatedly received are bar none.
