In brief: Usually not much

Many people only get temporary relief, some get new types of 'confused' nerve sensations, and a few get great relief.

In brief: Piriformis pain

Is usually due to imbalance of your pelvis and altered biomechanics putting constant strain on your piriformis.
See an osteopath or a physiatrist or even a podiatrist for another opinion.
