Piriformus Syndrome Problems
« on: February 24, 2015, 11:13:27 PM »
Hi! I've been researching on your website about products that would help with piriformus syndrome. It's a recent injury and my doctors have told me that heat and ice will help. Is there anything that can help besides physiotherapy?

Thanks soo much!!!

Hi Becca,

I have included a response that was made previously on our forum from one of our staff members who also suffered with Piriformus Syndrome.

------

I actually was suffering not long ago with a tight piriformis which caused major sciatica issues.  My biggest issue was standing from a sitting position without excruciating pain, or being able to fully extend my right leg flat out in front of me when seated.  The ColdCure back was a wonderful product.  First thing in the morning, I would use the first gel (out of the fridge, not freezer) for about 30min, then I would swap it out for a 2nd cold one.  By about 15 min through the second gel, my pain was substantially gone and I could function again.  I used the BFST 2-3 times per day around my schedule.  I went to physio two times per week for 3 weeks and was down to once a week for only 2 more weeks and then I was released.  Physiotherapy consisted of stretching exercises (both done by myself and manually by the physiotherapist).  After each session they applied cold (to decrease inflammation caused from working the area during the physio session) followed by some form of therapy (electric currant; laser; ultrasound etc., basically to stimulate the bloodflow)  At home I would follow my regular treatment regimen of BFST and ColdCure as well.  My physiotherapist was amazed at how quickly my condition improved since typically, sessions are usually 3 times per week for 6 weeks or more.  It was probably more due to the fact that I didn't have to wait for my physio appointments in order to keep my bloodflow stimulated.  I was able to continue, not only my stretching exercises, but was also able to use my products at home in between sessions.  When first starting physio, I could not lift my right leg to even a 45 degree angle (while laying flat on my back).  Within the 5 weeks (only 8 physio treatments) my leg could be extended way past a 90 degree angle.  I now have full range of motion and absolutely no pain whatsoever.
