Piriformis "Syndrome"
How To Fix =
It

=

 

=

 

Change the way you =
think about it. It is not a =E2=80=9Csyndrome=E2=80=9D. The same =
principles we apply to any musculoskeletal area apply to piriformis =
issues.

A =E2=80=9Ctight=E2=80=9D piriformis is doing more work =
than it should. Find the weak muscle/s that is making piriformis over =
work.

You won=E2=80=99t solve this in stretching. Actually in my =
approach I look at the position the problem occurs in and then correct =
that.

So a =E2=80=9Cpiriformis=E2=80=9D stretch is a position you =
rarely ever achieve in your life. To me that is not a =
=E2=80=9Cfunctional=E2=80=9D solution!!! Find a functional =
solution🤘

Weakness of =
the Glute max and Glute Med into external rotation and abduction control =
in single leg weight-bearing activities will be your most common finding =
(such as step-ups, walking). Weakness cannot be =
tolerated.

Rehab the weakness, =
don=E2=80=99t just stretch and roll out the =
tightness.
 
Strengthening will be the lasting =
solution, the stretch and roll out are fine ( if you want) but they are =
secondary in importance to the overall strengthening =
plan.

Remember to think of piriformis issues like the rotator =
cuff. It is mainly a joint stabiliser, the power comes from the =
glutes.

Weak Glutes into the problem pattern is causing increased =
work upon the piriformis. 
Instead of stabilising happily, =
piriformis is now trying to produce force to make up for the Glute =
weakness.

Now go get your Glutes strong. 
Correctly =
progress through the force levels to find the right tool for the right =
job!
