This is easy enough to do sitting in a regular chair. Part 2 of the exercise can be done in a chair of on the floor.

The piriromis muscle can get tight and put pressure on the sciatic nerve. This is what causes the pain in the butt, leg or numbness down the leg. Getting the piriformis to loosen up can be helpful.

I am a physical therapist and have used a similar exercise to reduce piriformis tightness. It is important to note that not all sciatica symptoms are from a tight piriformis. Make sure you have an accurate diagnosis before trying any exercise.

Hi Janelle,

Thank you for the several replies you’ve done on Pirformis, cold therapy, IF and electrode placement. It’s nice to have a Physical Therapist respond as I’ve told many folks it’s P.T.s who about the only health care profession that does not equate “electricity” with “electrocution”!!! 🙂 Have put up several new videos, 2 more coming up next week, since your last response. I did not realize we had your comments until today and I approved all and put on site. I need to make sure they get posted as you write and will do my best. I’m always working the web site but the blog is something I don’t normally check, nor know what to do with, as is readily apparent.

Again thanks, sorry for delay and whenever you need reply directly to me at

1.Physical Therapy – Emphasis on stretching and
strengthening the hip rotator muscles
2. Rest – Avoid the activities that cause symptoms for
at least a few weeks
3. Anti-Inflammatory Medication – To decrease
inflammation around the tendon
4. Deep Massage – Advocated by some physicians
