piriformis syndrome

I'm trying to figure out if I have piriformis syndrome.  My low right back hurts as well as my glutes.  When I flex my hip to 90 degrees and abduct it I can only go about 45 degrees before it is painful.  I can externally rotate my right leg fine with no pain.  Does this mean I most likely have piriformis syndrome because I can't abduct my flexed right leg?  Would stretching it help at all you think?

 

thanks guys

Hi, 

While your situation may or may not be piriformis syndrome, it sounds like re-aligning your pelvis may be a good start.  Often our students with ostearthrits in the hips, piriformis pain, and sciatica, find relief once they have properly anterverted the pelvis.  Also, the "relaxation phase" of Glidewalking can be particularly helpful for hip health.  You can check out more information here: http://gokhalemethod.com/Piriformis%20Syndrome.

I would begin with lengthening techniques such as Stretchsitting and Stretchlying.

I hope this is helpful to you!

Warmly,
