Piriformis Syndrome Market Scenario

The Piriformis Syndrome Market is expected to reach USD 245.44 Million by 2030 at 6.10% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030

Piriformis syndrome is a rare neuromuscular condition that is caused when the piriformis muscle compresses the sciatic nerve. The piriformis muscle is a flat, band-like muscle located in the buttock near the upper region of the hip joint. Piriformis syndrome mostly occurs in adults and can affect individuals from any field and activity levels. The common causes of piriformis syndrome are considered to be trauma, spasms, and overuse injury. Additionally, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the piriformis syndrome is more prevalent in patients with pain in the lower back.

The piriformis syndrome market is majorly driven by the increase in the occurrences of piriformis syndrome, increasing screening, rising safety and success of drug treatments, and the growing geriatric population. The market restraints include the complications of surgeries, lack of awareness about the syndrome, and others. Furthermore, challenges in the diagnosis of the syndrome among the patient pool may hamper the growth of the market.
