Depends: First question is to make sure it really is piriformis syndrome. A few orthopedic exams in the clinic by your doctor help. Sometimes, they send you for nerve conduction study. Physical therapy can be a good start. If that fails, sometimes a pain management provider can inject the region to provide some relief of pain.
