For patients who are suffering from Sciatica, we often recommend piriformis block injections directly to the source of your chronic pain. These particular injections are:
- Targeted to your piriformis muscle in your buttock area, which extends from your tailbone’s side to the thighbone’s side.
- Directed to the exact source of your sciatic nerve irritation.
- Administered as a local anesthetic and steroid directly into your piriformis muscle when it becomes inflamed or irritated.
The Benefits of Piriformis Block Injections for Pain
A piriformis block injection can help patients experience dramatic pain relief.
This simple and quick procedure can be performed with or without fluoroscopic guidance.
In many cases, the piriformis block is a sciatic nerve block that can relieve the pain associated with sciatica.
