Runner's Health - What is Piriformis Syndrome?

Not too many people know this, but I used to jog on my high school's path team. I wasn't very great at it, so there's really next to nothing to brag about. But the running ended up being still good exercise. However it did feature a price.

Sure, I'd get a case of shin splints occasionally, but the real killer for me was Piriformis Syndrome.

It came on rapid and hard! Like a sharp and also stabbing pain in our hip or buttocks. And first, I was convinced that it was a stress fracture, and I was afraid to view a doctor because I didn't wish to spend months in any cast. But after the soreness just got worse and worse in the next few days, I figured I should search for help.

The sports medicine medical doctor I saw tested the muscle strength in our legs asked me one or two questions. Eventually he explained if you ask me that I had Piriformis Syndrome.

There is a small muscle in the pelvis called the Piriformis that will connects your leg to your hips. The Piriformis is the reason for the external rotation within your legs and helping you retain your balance while you're moving (sort of important for runners).

But when this muscles becomes over worked, such as from the strenuous training, it can begin that will spasm or become also tense. When this happens the Piriformis can start to irritate the sciatic nerve, which runs right below it.

This is where many of the pain starts. The sciatic nerve runs from your lower back right down to your ft. Symptoms of an agitated sciatic nerve may very well be pain, numbness, or tingling anywhere in the lower back down in your toes. However, the most common indications of Piriformis Syndrome is pain inside your buttocks.

I was relieved i always didn't have a strain fracture. In fact, my problem was a whole lot simpler. The doctor gave me several simple stretches to do each day and he told me for taking some painkillers to assist with inflammation.

It was sometimes difficult to get the time to do that stretches everyday, but I knew if i didn't do them that pain would continue.

The best stretch I've truly found for Piriformis Syndrome is fairly simple. The Piriformis is very deep in the buttocks, so it is difficult to stretch. But here is an easy one you can apply at home.

Simply sit on this floor with both of your legs looking at you and your knees bent. Then cross your correct leg over your quit knee and pull your own right knee toward your own chest. You will feel a stretch in the right buttocks. This is your Piriformis muscle stretching against your right side. Hold this stretch for about 5 minutes or perhaps however long feels good for your requirements.

After a few days, at the most, you will have relieved the tension in the Piriformis muscle and your pain should go away completely. If you ever begin to feel that pain creeping back, just do this stretch again on occasion.
