Acupuncture is effective for piriformis syndrome

The piriformis muscle is a small muscle located deep in the buttock near the top of the hip. It Starts at the lower spine and ends at the top of the hip (thigh bone). The sciatic nerve runs directly beneath it. This muscle is important in lower body movement. It stabilizes the hip joint and lifts and rotates the thigh away from the body. It shifts weight from one foot to another, and maintains balance, when walking. If this muscle is spasm, it compresses sciatic nerve causing pain known as piriformis syndrome. A typical symptom is a dull ache in the buttock with/without the pain down to the back of the thigh, calf and foot like sciatic pain; pain triggered or worsened when walking up stairs; prolonged sitting, walking, running makes the pain worse; there is reduced hip movement. The exact cause is unknown.

A few research has shown that acupuncture is effective to reduce pain of piriformis syndrome.
