Piriformis Syndrome

Piriformis Syndrome (PFS) is a neuromuscular disorder much like sciatica in which an inflamed and/or tight piriformis muscle compresses the sciatic nerve (largest nerve in the body). The piriformis muscle plays an important role in lower body movements because it lifts and rotates the thigh away from the body and stabilizes joint movement. When this muscle compresses the sciatic nerve, it results in spasms, numbness, and tingling in the buttocks or hips, all the way to the lower thigh and into the leg.
