Molly, you can read a description of electrode placement that worked for me for the obturator internus and piriformis.

viewtopic.php?f=32&t=4015
PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.

Violet - piriformis after PNE surgery Re: post op physio

Postby wannagetbetter » Sat Dec 10, 2016 12:08 am

Violet - Earlier in this thread you wrote:

"I wasn't able to tolerate PT until about a year after surgery but I think most PNE docs would advise having it sooner than that. I found it somewhat helpful -- especially in relieving the piriformis pain that had developed as a result of PNE. They showed me how to use a TENS unit for piriformis pain and obturator internus pain and if was very effective."

My question is what was it about the PNE that caused piriformis pain to develop?

I can't say for sure but it just seemed like more muscles went into spasm as the PNE pain progressed and then as the PNE pain subsided after surgery the muscles slowly relaxed again. I don't think I can described the mechanism of how it happened -- just that it did.
