Piriformis Stretch 1. Lie on your back. ... 2. Cross your left leg over your right so that your left ankle rests on your right knee. 3. Use your hands to grab hold of your left knee and pull it gently toward the opposite shoulder. ... 4. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds. 5. Relax, and then repeat with the other leg. 6. Repeat this cycle 2 to 4 times.

Their are specific stretches for piriformis if that's the problematic area. However, gluteus mediums, minimums  and hamstring are vital to stretch as they can also lead to pain in buttock area.

Kindly go through a complete check up of the problem and try to find out the exact diagnosis.. I think you need to go for spinal check up...as your pain is radiating down the feet.. if you have a muscular pain kindly go for further needling technique as it has instant results in relieving muscular pain.. take care get well soon..

Approximately 30%population have sciatic nerve passing in between piriformis muscle fibres. Such people are more prone n get frequent pain . There are other causes too like other Doc mentioned IVDP, strain due to tracking or sports, LLD( limb length discrepancy)etc. Try piriformis stretch, n Physio for pain . Should subside if it's just acute . Good Luck
