What’s Causing My Lower Back Pain/Piriformis Pain?

what's causing lower back pain and piriformis syndrome

Ever thought to yourself:

“I wake up just fine, but the moment I start walking around or doing work, everything tightens up”.

Or, ” I felt fine just yesterday. I’m not sure what happened, I literally can’t walk today’.

How do I know this?


Just Kidding lol

I know this because I’ve been in your shoes. Those flare-ups came uninvited whenever they felt like it. It drove me nuts. 

What I didn’t realize back then was the fact that it wasn’t about what I was doing, it was about what I didn’t know I was doing (that I had to stop doing).

What you don’t do is just as important, if not more, as
what you do do.

There is a reason the pain changes in intensity and you feel better at certain times, but worse at others. And if you want to find out the cause, you gotta do some investigational work.

I’m going to share with you part of the process I take my clients through to uncover what’s causing their lower back pain (pain triggers).

The second part of the process is very specific to the individual, but this first part should be enough to at least pinpoint the activities that are triggering your lower back pain or piriformis pain.

And I also created a FREE assessment guide you’ll need to download and print out to do this exercise with me. It’s right below the training video.

Let’s get to work!

    I thank you for the work you’ve done to share your experience and help others. Reading your story has helped me a lot! Largely because it’s my story too!!!!!!! Word for word. I’ve spent the past 10 months with piriformus syndrome and have done everything on your list ++ with absolutely zero progress. I WAS very fit and strong until this thing came on last summer. I still don’t know the root cause – after x-rays and an MRI – and on and on……I know you know. I really just wanted to say thanks. Coming across your site and story lets me know I’m not crazy! 🙂

      Hi Diana!
      I really appreciate your response and you’re SOO welcome. I know how emotionally (and physically) draining this journey can be. To be completely honest with you, the main thing that keeps me motivated to create these videos and continue my education in this area is my chronic pain journey, and back then, not being able to find a trusted source who knows what it really is like to live with this pain. There is a ton of information online but most articles are repetitive and written in a robotic way. They never spoke to me. This journey can get lonely especially when people don’t even know what piriformis syndrome even is let alone understand how the pain can affect you at every level. I have other posts on mindset and healing that I know will help you navigate this journey without exhausting your nervous system from stress. You can find them in the “mind-body” category of the blog. Take care of yourself and your body. Sending you healing thoughts <3
