Dear Friends,

Paulius Jurasius here, founder of JANMI. I’m pleased to share how our expertly designed neuromuscular techniques can address and relieve piriformis pain—a common but often misunderstood condition that can significantly impact your mobility and quality of life.

Understanding Piriformis Pain

The piriformis muscle, located in the buttock region, is crucial for lower body movement. It rotates the hip and turns the leg and foot outward. Pain in the piriformis muscle can cause significant discomfort in the buttocks and may radiate down the leg, commonly known as piriformis syndrome. This condition is often confused with sciatica, as the symptoms are similar due to the piriformis muscle irritating the nearby sciatic nerve.

The Root of Piriformis Pain

Piriformis pain can be triggered by various factors, including:

- Prolonged sitting

- Intense exercise

- Injury

- Anatomical variations

How JANMI Neuromuscular Techniques Help

Our approach at JANMI incorporates specialized neuromuscular techniques to specifically target the piriformis muscle, providing relief and promoting healing.

Here’s how we do it:

1. Neuromuscular Massage

This technique focuses on identifying and releasing trigger points in the piriformis muscle. By applying controlled pressure to these points, our therapists help reduce muscle tension and nerve compression, alleviating pain and restoring function.

2. Muscle Energy Techniques (MET)

We use MET to gently stretch the piriformis muscle and strengthen its antagonists, which helps correct muscular imbalances. This method not only relieves pain but also aids in preventing future episodes.

3. Posture and Movement Education

Improper posture and movement can exacerbate piriformis pain. We educate our clients on how to adjust their daily movements and posture to reduce stress on the piriformis muscle, supporting long-term relief.

The JANMI Promise

At JANMI, we are committed to providing personalized care that addresses the unique needs of each client. With our neuromuscular techniques, we not only aim to relieve your current discomfort but also empower you with knowledge and strategies to prevent its recurrence.


If you are experiencing symptoms of piriformis syndrome, do not hesitate to seek help. At JANMI, we are ready to assist you in overcoming this challenge and improving your overall well-being.
