Rx First Aid

When treating the swollen Piriformis, sit on ice every day 3 times a day for 30 minutes each time. Place the ice bag on a sofa cushion so to soften the pressure. Once the area is so cold it become numb, try to stretch as shown in this section. You have to be aggressive for the spasm in the Piriformis to go away, don’t worry it won’t break. Take every day precautions to prevent the inflammation from coming back. Make sure you are not sitting on a wallet during the day. Have shoe orthotics made custom for your feet to re-align your posture. Don’t sit too long during the day and stretch as often as you can.
