A common cause is Piriformis Syndrome.
The major complaint people have is pain in the buttock and pain in the posterior leg . Often my patients cannot pin point as to what was the cause as there is often no traumatic onset.
So what could be the problem?
The piriformis muscle can sometimes compress the sciatic nerve. In most patients, the sciatic nerve runs under the pirifomis muscle. but 1 in 5 people have the sciatic nerve running through the muscle bellies.
How can Health Wise Chiropractic help?
1st thing we do is assess the muscle as well as the sacrum where the muscle attaches. Then we assess whether we work on the muscle and spine/hip to help relieve to tension.
We also suggest some stretches to help to help the body heal after our session.
