You Shouldn't be Trapped by Pain in Your Glutes
Piriformis syndrome is a condition that can cause deep pain in your gluteus muscles. The pain can be sharp or radiate down the back of your leg. The condition can cause a pins and needles sensation in the legs or even numbness in your buttocks, feet, or legs. There are also other conditions that could cause your symptoms, such as sciatica, herniated disc, or cluneal nerve entrapment.
If you are unsure what is causing your symptoms, it is essential to see a doctor as soon as possible for the following reasons:
- Diagnosis. Getting the proper diagnosis is essential. There is no single test to diagnose piriformis syndrome, but a doctor can do a physical exam and rule out other causes for the symptoms. If left untreated, the pain and other symptoms may worsen and become chronic.
- Treatment. After a diagnosis is made, treatment options can be discussed. There are several types of treatment for piriformis syndrome, such as anti-inflammatory medication, stretching exercises, and in some cases, nerve decompression surgery.
- Pain relief. Once you get the right type of treatment for your condition, you can enjoy living life pain-free.
