Does anyone know anything about the piriformis muscle? I am trying to get information about treatment (not physical therapy, that is not an option at present) and cannot get a professional response. I have been advised to have a spinal cord stimulator which I am checking into since I have no other choice for pain relief. Seems the medical community is divided on this issue. I was told by one doctor, if they can't see it or touch it, it doesn't exist and I am starting to believe this. I know this muscle exists because I am being treated for pain issues related to this area but need more information about treatment. Physical therapy is not working for me, I have been 12 times but always wind up in more pain. Now I am told a spinal cord stimulator will help but I am not sure it is recommended for this area. Any thoughts?
