Were you looking for information about Piriformis Syndrome? Pyriformis syndrome is a common misspelling of piriformis syndrome.
Piriformis syndrome is a type of neuromuscular disorder that occurs when the piriformis muscle compresses on the sciatic nerve. As a result, this compression causes pain in the buttocks and along the nerve, possibly even down the leg. The pain may worsen as a result of sitting for a long period of time, climbing stairs, walking, or running. Possible treatment options for piriformis syndrome include stretching exercises, certain medications, and surgery.
