Piriformis syndrome

Piriformis syndrome is a common disease causing acute and chronic sciatica. It is generally believed that the high branch of the common peroneal nerve passes through the piriformis muscle bundle or the sciatic nerve passes through the abdomen of the piriformis muscle. When the piriformis muscle is injured and congestion, edema, spasm, adhesion and contracture occur, the muscle space or the superior and inferior pores of the muscle become narrow and squeeze the nerves and blood vessels passing through it. Therefore, a series of clinical symptoms and symptoms are called piriformis muscle injury syndrome.
