Abstract

Piriformis syndrome, a constellation of signs and symptoms referable to peripheral compression neuropathy of the sciatic nerve, was first described over 70 years ago. It still remains a controversial topic, however. Acceptance of piriformis syndrome as a true diagnostic entity is not widespread among practitioners who treat patients with sciatica primarily because of its rarity and frequent lack of objective findings on clinical, radiographic, and neurophysiologic testing. On the other hand, there are many reports of successful pain relief in patients treated for piriformis syndrome. This article reviews the diagnostic features of piriformis syndrome and a variety of treatment options that provide the physician with the basic tools necessary to evaluate and treat sciatica secondary to peripheral compression.
