If your pain is in buttocks and back of thigh, but does not go below the knee you may have Piriformis Syndrome. This happens when the piriformis muscle (one of the major buttocks muscles) presses on the sciatic nerve. Piriformis syndrome can be caused by the piriformis muscle being
a.) Too tight OR
b.) Overstretched OR
1.) Reduce inflammation
2.) Gently Stretch
4.) Balance Exercises
The above assumes piriformis muscle pressure on the sciatic nerve. Here are other common issues that could be causing sciatic-like pain.
