The piriformis muscle allows you to flex your foot outwards by rotating the hip joint. It travels behind the hip joint and over the buttock. If irritated, the piriformis may compress the sciatic nerve, which can cause hip and buttock pain that radiates down the leg. Patients experiencing pain in the piriformis may be suitable candidates for a piriformis injection. Please refer to the “Services” page for further information on this treatment.
