The Piriformis muscle can also irritate the sciatic nerve and cause the same pain, numbness and tingling along the back of the leg. This tingling and numbness can even continue down into the foot. The Piriformis muscle starts at the lower spine and connects to the upper surface of each femur. It functions to assist in rotating the hip and turning the leg outward. It runs diagonally, with the sciatic nerve running vertically directly beneath it.
Piriformis Syndrome is often confused with other conditions, especially lumbar spine conditions. Obtaining a proper diagnosis of Piriformis Syndrome is important to get proper treatment.
