What is the piriformis muscle? Is it important for sciatica relief?

The piriformis muscle and the psoas muscle keep the back, hip and legs ALIGNED


The piriformis helps ROTATE your hip and allows you to turn your leg and foot outward. The muscle runs along the SCIATIC nerve


If the psoas muscle is too tight, it will pull the lower part of your spine forward while pulling the upper part of your spine backward. This, of course, has a knock-on effect on the piriformis because it cannot sit in its proper place. If your piriformis is too tight it will pull your feet wider than parallel and turn your inner thighs more toward the front of your body.



How to relieve the piriformis muscle:

Stretching or using a foam roller on the tight psoas and piriformis msucle


Exercise the weak muscles like the abdominals, glutes and diaphragm


Chiropractic adjustments
