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
