Periformis Syndrome

Were you looking for information about Piriformis Syndrome? Periformis syndrome is a common misspelling of piriformis syndrome.
 
Piriformis syndrome, a type of neuromuscular disorder, occurs when the piriformis muscle in the buttocks compresses on the sciatic nerve. This compression on the nerve causes pain (such as tingling and numbness) in the buttocks and along the nerve, often down the leg. Possible treatment options include a program of stretching exercises and massage; anti-inflammatory drugs; and either stopping or modifying running, bicycling, or similar activity. The prognosis for people who have piriformis syndrome is typically good.
