Your Glutes/Butt are the largest muscles in your body. if you can’t move, walk, or bend without pain you may have Piriformis or Sciatica Syndrome.
There is a muscle in your glutes called the Piriformis; if it gets pinched (it can literally be a pain in the butt!) walking and bending results in shooting pain, numbness, and more..
Sciatica is the sibling to Piriformis and is another pain in the butt! Sciatica’s primary symptom is pain radiating down the leg.
Massage therapists treat piriformis and sciatic pain with assisted-stretch and deep tissue massage.
