The 11 Commandments Of Piriformis Pain

The 11 Commandments Of Piriformis Pain

Yesterday in my article, Muscle Imbalance – The Secret Source Of Piriformis Pain and Sciatica Back Pain I went into some depth about piriformis muscle syndrome and the most common major cause of piriformis pain – and indeed of most cases of sciatica back pain – muscle imbalances. I encourage you to read it after you’ve gone over the “commandments” in this article.

That discussion was a little bit technical so as to show the underlying scenarios that lead to piriformis pain. Today I want to simplify things a bit, and be a little tongue-in-cheek too, by giving you, dear reader, the “11 Commandments Of Piriformis Pain”. These are the behavior and lifestyle choices anyone suffering from piriformis pain must strongly consider doing to reduce, relieve, and prevent piriformis pain. As a bonus these tips will help with any other type of sciatica back pain as well. Everything’s related.

Don’t be surprised if your piriformis pain sticks around no matter what else you do if you don’t try out the advice below. So without further ado, here are The 11 Commandments Of Piriformis Pain:

1. Thou Shalt Sit Straight
One of the worst things you can do to yourself is something you possibly do all day long: Sit down. Because most people slump over into a “C”-shape when they sit and over-stress their spine. This posture normally doesn’t hurt you *now*, but it’s a documented fact that poor posture = Pain down the road. After years of sitting badly like this, “down the road” has come for many of us…

2. Thou Shalt Exercise Properly
We all need to develop a balanced and stable body and it’s even more urgent if you’re already suffering from piriformis pain. The problem is so many of the most popular exercises out there make piriformis muscle syndrome even worse by strengthening the wrong muscle groups further, or by neglecting flexibility. The muscle imbalances that lead to the pain in the first place get reinforced and piriformis pain flares up stronger.

3. Thou Shalt Drink Plenty of Water
Water is so important to humans it goes without saying. One of the most basic yet common causes of pain is dehydration. Not having enough fluid in the body to keep the body cool, the blood moving, the muscles supple, the tendons relaxed and the discs well hydrated causes pain. Drink more water – and coffee, soda and tea aren’t water! They dehydrate you by themselves.

4. Thou Shalt Not Tolerate Chronic Inflammation
Inflammation is a primary immune system response to an irritant. The swelling is your body’s way of supplying the problem area with antibodies, fresh blood, cells, etc to begin the healing process. And it works pretty flawlessly until age 25 or so, when levels of the healing enzymes critical to controlling this process begin to decline and so inflammation starts running unchecked.
