How can a tear in the Piriformis heal ?

How can I heal a tear in the Piriformis just diagnosed after several months with my Phsio. I have been applying t.e.ns. two to three times a day, with heated wheat bags, Can only do short 5 minute walks for exercise, then pain kicks in the thigh,hip, and bum. Have now started to apply gel pack from fridge, to the sore buttock, area, should I also continue with the t.e.n.s What exercises can I do to help myself heal? Is the information you give free?

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

This is just to let you know that there are no medicines or any other method to hasten the healing process in a muscle. So it has to heal naturally.

In the meantime, no additional stress or strain should be exerted over the injured muscle inorder to hasten the healing process. Roughly it may take around 3-4 weeks to heal.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
