Often described as a “pain in the butt”, piriformis syndrome is characterized by a tightness in the center of the buttock region. This tightness can lead to loss of hip mobility, abnormal movement compensations, and even some sciatic nerve irritation symptoms. Those individuals that sit at a desk many hours of the day typically will develop piriformis muscle tightness which can lead to this piriformis syndrome.
