Yesterday at the gym this guy was talking about having sciatica due to piriformas, or something like that. Everybody seemed to know what he was talking about. Is there anybody who can explain to me what this piriformas is. Thank you in advance

Hello. The Piriformis is one of the small muscles deep in the buttocks that rotates the leg outwards. It runs from the base of the spine and attaches to the thigh bone (femur) roughly where the outside crease in your bum is. The sciatic nerve runs very close to this muscle and sometimes even through it. Sciatica occurs when this muscle becomes tight that it puts pressure on the sciatic nerve and causes pain which can radiate down the leg. There, now you know too.
