Hip and Buttock Pain?

HIP AND BUTTOCK PAIN: Also called ‘Piriformis Syndrome’ the pain can be in your upper leg, buttocks or lower back. Prolonged sitting can aggravate the injury, a tight lower back and tight hamstrings can make the piriform muscle work more difficult and create swelling in the area. The swelling often causes pressure on the sciatic nerve making the area sensitive to the touch. Massage can reduce muscular tension in the area, focus on strengthening you hip, hamstring and lower back muscles.
