One common cause of pain in the backside (deep in the buttock) is Piriformis Syndrome. This can be accompanied with pain radiating down the leg. Piriformis Syndrome is named after the piriformis muscle, which is located in the lower part of the spine (sacrum), connects to the thigh bone (femur), and assists in hip rotation. The sciatic nerve runs beneath the piriformis muscle. This muscle is susceptible to injury from a slip and fall, hip arthritis, or a difference in leg length. Such situations can cause cramping and spasm to develop in the piriformis muscle, thereby pinching the sciatic nerve - causing inflammation and pain.
