A tight piriformis can cause knee problems as well as piriformis syndrome where the tight piriformis impinges the sciatic nerve causing shooting pain down from the glutes area all the way down the leg (sciatica)

To perform Self Myo Fascial Release (SMFR) on the piriformis sit on a foam roller.

If you are going to do your right side, cross your right leg over your straight left leg.

Turn towards the leg which is up crossed over the leg and massage along the side of the glutes.

The piriformis is responsible for external rotation and is very powerful. It is deep so you have to find the right spot to get it with the roller.
