Piriformis Syndrome

Piriformis syndrome is a distinctive neuromuscular syndrome that induces pain or numbness in your lower limb. When the sciatic nerve gets compressed by the piriform muscles for a longer time, inflammation rises. This is not an everyday constraint and hence can occur due to facets like injury, swelling, muscle spasms, or scar tissue in the piriformis region. There are mainly two sorts of Piriformis syndrome, Primary piriformis syndrome, and Secondary piriformis syndrome. It is onerous to rule out this condition as there is no specific definitive test for piriformis syndrome. The treatment includes dodging the postures and activities that trigger the compression and surgery is only recommended when the other treatments fail. The surgery involves removing scar tissue and other sources of compression.
