Abstract
Piriformis syndrome is a painful entrapment neuropathy caused by compression of the sciatic nerve under piriformis muscle for structural or acquired reasons. Myofascial pain syndrome is the most common cause. There are physical therapy modalities, stretching exercises, injection therapies and medical treatment approaches.In this case, we planned to demonstrate a different perspective to the treatment of piriformis syndrome with the ultrasound-guided dry needling treatment.
