Piriformis syndrome also causes symptoms similar to sciatica. It occurs when the piriformis muscle in the buttocks irritates the sciatic nerve, which can cause pain to radiate along the path of the nerve into your leg.
X-ray analysis and examination can reveal which area if affected and specific chiropractic adjustments can remedy the source.
The best way to take care of this issue is by seeing a chiropractor who specializes in treating trigger points, and stretching and doing yoga. Ice will help out as well, by decreasing the inflammation.
I hope that this answer helps you.

You should see a chiropractor for a complete evaluation to determine what is the cause of your pain. In the meantime try alternating moist heat and ice pack therapy to alleviate nerve irritation and muscle spasm.
That may help with the pain but your pelvis will still need to be properly aligned and any possible lumbar vertebrae will need to be adjusted to reduce nerve inflammation.
Could be piriformis syndrome. I’d suggest visiting a local chiropractor.

A chiropractor often sees patients presenting with sciatica. You could feel an electric-shock sensation that shoots down the leg, or your leg may endure a burning, tingling or numbing sensation. Recovering from sciatica can be a painful and prolonged process, so buckle up. In addition to getting treatment, there are many things at home you can do to help. Ice therapy is an option. Applying a cold pack to the painful area for 10 to 15 minutes can sometimes provide immediate relief. Taking Omega-3 supplements can help reduce inflammation. Please see your local chiropractor for all advice and treatment options.
