Why Choose a Conservative Treatment?
In a clinical study as noted by Parziale et al, it was found that surgery is necessary only on rare occasions of Piriformis Syndrome and conservative treatments are sufficient in most cases with symptoms including:
Pain in right or left buttock
Radiating pain to anterior thigh, groin and lower limbs
Poor tolerance, difficulty or pain while sitting
Increased pain after runningor prolonged sitting
Gluteal pain after prolonged driving
Difficulty performing daily activities
Low Back Pain
Patients who used conservative treatments including post-isometric stretching, TENS, elimination of negative habits, muscle stretching, ultrasound and local massage avoided surgery and experienced significant improvement in their symptoms.
Targeted Stretching with the Piri-Stretcher® just a few minutes a day provides a natural, non-invasive treatment for lasting pain relief.

Who should use the Piri-Stretcher® for Sciatica or Piriformis Syndrome?
Piriformis Syndrome pain is common and 1 in 7 Americans are more likely to be affected because their sciatic nerve runs through rather than under their Piriformis muscle increasing the probability of nerve irritation and pain.
What many Americans do not know is that 70 to 80 percent of low back pain is muscle related. Conditions such as Piriformis Syndrome, Sciatica, and Myofascial Pain often can be alleviated using non-invasive methods, such as targeted stretching, which specifically address the muscles causing pain.
Simple daily tasks such as sitting, walking, running, and standing can cause aggravated pain. Low back pain sufferers often resort to pain medications, injections, or even costly surgery to alleviate pain however first non-intrusive methods such as therapy and isolated stretching are more commonly recommended by doctors and preferred by patients.

What causes Piriformis Syndrome?
A common (non-trauma) cause of Piriformis Syndrome includes over-active, short and tight hip flexors (psoas major, iliacus, and rectus femoris) causing gluteal weakness. The muscle imbalance and weakness can occur when someone sits with hips flexed, as in SITTING ALL DAY AT WORK. Hamstrings, adductor magnus, and piriformis muscles then have to perform extra roles they were not designed to do resulting in piriformis muscle tightness or spasm which can lead to the painful condition.
In additon to sitting for extended periods, overuse injury can also result from activities that involve STRENUOUS USE OF THE LEGS AS IN ROWING, SCULLING, BICYCLING, AND RUNNING. Runners who over-pronate, bicyclists and other athletes engaging in forward-moving activities are particularly susceptible to Piriformis Syndrome if they do not engage in proper stretching and strengthening exercises.
Anatomy of Piriformis Muscle
A compressed sciatic nerve resulting from a tight piriformis muscle pressing on it can produce low back, buttocks and radiating leg pain. If you experience any of the below symptoms, the Piri-Stretcher® is a natural solution which can help you find lasting relief.
We're not all the same on the inside. 1 out of 7 people are more susceptible to Piriformis Syndrome because their sciatic nerve runs through, rather than under, the piriformis muscle. The piriformis muscle is one of the lateral rotators buried deep to the gluteus muscles. Piriformis Syndrome is a nerve irritation that occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed or otherwise irritated due to tight or inflamed piriformis muscles. It can be treated by isolating and addressing the muscles causing pain.
