You feel muscle tension in the buttocks and thighs, sometimes even painful irradiation that looks like an electric shock going down and through your leg. It is quite possible that the cause of the problem is that your sciatic nerve is irritated. The contracted gluteal muscles “jam” the sciatic nerve and create intense pain that prevents you from functioning optimally and interferes with your daily activities.The causes of muscle tension can be from prolonged sitting or physical activity that strains the muscles of the buttocks or lower back. Stretching can actually help relieve accumulated tension and decrease pain. On the other hand, it is difficult to completely eliminate discomfort only with stretching since the tense muscles often causing the pain (such as the piriformis muscle) are deep and more difficult to relax completely with stretching.
