How to Determine If You have True Sciatica or Just A Pain In The Butt

How to Determine If You have True Sciatica or Just A Pain In The Butt Determine the Difference Between True Sciatica or Piriformis Syndrome
If you suffer from radiating pain through your hip and down your leg, you need to determine if you have true sciatica or if you have tight muscles in your gluts (butt muscles) and hip muscles (specifically the muscles that rotate the upper leg outward). Watch this video to determine if you need to see a doctor or work on your flexibility:

Periformis Syndrome Stretch
When you are in the proper attack position as described by Gary, you are engaging the muscles of your butt, hips and lower back (along with a bunch of other muscles). Like any other muscle, the more you use the muscles, the tighter they naturally become.

You can alleviate tight muscles by warming the tissue up, applying foam rolling and trigger point exercises and then isolate and stretch the muscles. Click on each hyperlink for a bundle of videos to help you reduce the tension within the various muscles. To stretch the Piriformis muscle - the one that is causing your radiating pain down your leg, please watch this video:

Note: please stretch after you have warmed up the tissue, NOT prior. Click here and watch this video and learn why.
