Buttock Pain

Although most people will suffer from buttock pain at some time in their lives, it most frequently affects people with sedentary jobs, often as a result of strain injury, poor posture, disuse, or referred pain from areas above the buttocks, such as the sacro-iliac joint or spine.

The anatomy of the buttocks is complex.  When the soft tissues surrounding the buttock bones are compressed too much, it can result in direct trauma resulting in inflammation and pain. Buttock pain is also caused by postural abnormalities which can afflict the tissues of the pelvis and buttocks, and is also commonly associated with athletes involved in kicking or sprinting sports.
