Were you looking for information about Piriformis Syndrome? Pirformis syndrome is a common misspelling of piriformis syndrome.
When the piriformis muscle in the buttocks compresses or irritates the sciatic nerve, it causes a neuromuscular disorder called piriformis syndrome. This syndrome can cause pain (such as numbness or tingling) in the buttocks and down the leg. The prognosis for this condition is good in most cases, with possible treatment options such as stretching exercises, anti-inflammatory drugs, and corticosteroid injections.
