The pain in your rear…

Your glutes (aka gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus), can be a pain in the rear - but they can also cause pain in other areas, such as your lower back, hips, pelvis, hamstrings, and knees.

Do you have any of the following:

  • soreness or tightness in the buttocks
  • pain or soreness in the hips
  • tight hip flexors
  • low-back pain
  • tight hamstrings
  • knee pain
  • pelvic pain or instability

If so, your glutes may be tight (aka a muscle spasm). Don't worry, there's a solution for that. Stretching can help relieve the tension and pain. Below are some stretches you can do to help. As a reminder, take it easy - go slowly and stop immediately if you experience pain.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention that once you get those muscles loosened, a chiropractic adjustment goes a long way to returning your spine and joints to alignment.

Stay well adjusted,

Dr. Dan Kammer
