What are the Symptoms of Posterior Femoral Cutaneous Nerve Pain?
The most common symptom of this nerve injury is the inability to sit without pain or discomfort. Most of the time, people with this injury can walk and run pain free. Symptoms can range from a dull, achy pain to numbness and tingling in the tailbone and upper hamstring areas. This is often misdiagnosed as sciatica symptoms or a high hamstring injury.
What Causes Posterior Femoral Cutaneous Nerve Pain?
Irritation of this nerve usually happens at the muscles of the lower part of the buttock, the sitting bones, ligaments of the buttock and the hamstring muscles. This is a very common injury in cyclists. Also, a direct fall onto a hard object where one may think they bruised their tailbone, sometimes are actually a crush injury to the Posterior Femoral Cutaneous Nerve.
How do you treat Posterior Femoral Cutaneous Nerve Pain?
If there is any entrapment of a muscle, tendon or ligament around it, we use A.R.T. to release the nerve. The nerve will be swollen, so there are modification of activities of daily living (sitting and icing) that will go a long ways in helping you resolve this uncomfortable condition when properly applied.

This is one of the hardest areas we have to try and convince people to put ice on. It helps though!

Hip & Buttockk Overview
Sciatica, also known as sciatica syndrome, refers to back pain that’s caused by a problem with the sciatic nerve—a large nerve that runs from your lower back down the back of each leg.
Sharp shooting pains down the back of the leg and into the foot may indicate a problem up in the back of the hip. A tight piriformis muscle can severely irritate the sciatic nerve.
