    Piriformis - pain in the bum

    Has anyone successfully dealt with this? Can't afford a physion but I've been rolling my backside on tennis balls till my eyes water! Been a problem for about 3 months now. Keen to hear of successful treatments.

    Ice it lots, stretch it lots, then strengthen the abductors etc with lots of 1 leg squats - worked for me. I'd agree that it's hard to get rid of! Getting the piriformis stretch right can be tricky so make sure it's definitely hitting the spot!

    Re: Piriformis - pain in the b

    I had this after a heavy fall on my hip on arocky descent. Couldn't sit down and went on for ages.

    Eventually saw a remedial masseur (20/hr) who identified it and sorted it out quickly in 1 session. If you can find someone at that sort of price could be worthwhile.

    I had a piriformis sort of nasty niggle that just wouldn't shift, no matter how many tennis balls I sat on (that heady mix of pleasure and pain).

    Turned out it was actually a lower back thing, and an assertive physio wrenched some sense into me.

    Just a thought.

    I'd like to know how physios differentiate between piriformis and disc-related sciatic pain, and between those and certain upper hamstring problems... still not entirely sure what I've got ....

    Re: Piriformis - pain in the b

    My guy said that sciatica is the symptom and as mentioned root cause can be either lower back or piriformis. Can't remember how he tested but quickly ruled out lower back - both cause pain right down leg but I didn't have any lower back pain.

    It was only after diagnosis that I linked it to my fall at Coniston Gullies.
