Sciatica pain can become debilitating. The piriformis muscle is located deep within the gluteual muscles and when this region becomes contracted, it clamps down and can entrap the nerve. Trigger Points develop in the piriformis at the hip joint and the sacrum. Applying pressure using a tennis ball or baseball will release the contracted state it is in causing it to clamp down on the Sciatica nerve.
Treat Trigger Points in affected muscles with neuromuscular techniques to relieve “sciatica” pains. Check three muscles: the quadratus lumborum between the ribs and hips, the piriformis deep under the gluteus maximus, and the gluteus minimus in the side of your hip. See more here.
