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.

Piriformis sendromu, siyatik sinirin yapısal veya edinsel nedenlerle piriformis kası altında basıya uğramasıyla oluşan ağrılı bir tuzak nöropatidir. En sık nedeni miyofasyal ağrı sendromudur. Tedavisinde fizik tedavi modaliteleri, germe egzersizleri, enjeksiyon tedavileri ve medikal tedavi yaklaşımları vardır. Bu vakada ultrason rehberliğinde yaptığımız kuru iğneleme tedavisi ile piriformis sendromu tedavisine farklı bir bakış açısı ortaya koymayı planladık.
