I don't know if I have sciatica or piriformis, but I am pretty sure it is piriformis. I am pretty sure of this, because my chiropractor agreed that it is probably piriformis. My question to you is this:
Suppose there are two people. One person has piriformis and the other person has sciatica. Suppose the one with piriformis is named Piriformis and the one with sciatica is named Sciatica. Now these two people each is trying to treat their back problem. They are both doing stretches and icing/heating their backs. If one watched what they do to cure them of their sciatica or piriformis, would one be able to tell if they have sciatica or piriformis?
If one can tell, I may consider getting a thorough examination to find out for certain what I am currently dealing with. Otherwise, I am going to keep treating this problem as if I have piriformis.
Thank you for reading this post, and I am sorry if this question has been posted earlier.
