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.
Low Back Pain Could Be a Tight or Shortened Psoas. (pronounced: So-as). The Psoas is a hip flexor located deep in the abdomen attaching the femur to the pelvis and lumbar spine. The lumbosacral nerve plexus runs through it. Prolonged sitting and lack of exercise can shorten the Psoas. When we stand after sitting for a while, the shortened Psoas pulls the lumbar spine forward into increased lordosis (sway back). A stiff, achy or painful low back & sciatic pain is often a result.
