Yoga For Piriformis Syndrome

 

Being a lover of both dance classes and high heal shoes my body is often thrown out of balance.  I mainly suffer from Piriformis Syndrome which is an ongoing battle for me.  I don’t intend on giving up either high healed shoes or dance so yoga comes to my aid, yet again :-) .  These 3 simple postures will help relieve any pain or pinching you are feeling deep in the buttock and pain that may extend from there down the leg.  It will only take a few minutes to do both sides.  I promise you will feel relief. Regardless of pain this is a great sequence to keep the glutes and i.t ban flexible.

If you have one side tighter than the other, hold that side for twice as many breaths as the more open side, until you feel the body is moving to balance. Then you can hold for even breaths on both side.

Enjoy, relieve your pain, be  happy!

Piriformis syndrome is a neuromuscular disorder that occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed or otherwise irritated by the piriformis musclecausing pain, tingling and numbness in the buttocks and along the path of the sciatic nerve descending down the lower thigh and into the leg.

The sciatic nerve may then piercee the piriformis muscle, split the piriformis muscle, or both, predisposing  individuals to piriformis syndrome.
