Sciatica – Muscle Spasm Piriformis

This condition causes pain into the buttock and often down the leg. It is the result of the spasm of the piriformis muscle. This muscle is in the buttock and when it spasms it will irritate the sciatic nerve.

Doctor's Treatment Plan
This condition is often chronic in nature and takes time to completely resolve. After the initial inflammation and acute pain is reduced, we focus on the cause of the problem to prevent the muscle from spasming in the future.

  Note: It should always be considered that not all injuries are spinal related, and therefore not all injuries can be fully corrected with the benefit of chiropractic medicine. Further, the injury profiles and recommendations for treatment should in no way be used as a substitute for the care of a physician.
