Sciatica: The piriformis muscle sits very close to the sciatic nerve and for some people it actually irritates that nerve and causes pain to radiate down one or both legs. It can be difficult to distinguish from a disk herniation which irritates low back nerve roots that also causes pain to radiate down the leg (sciatica). Piriformis syndrome can be treated with injections and / or pt.
