There are many causes of glute strains

Glute strains can be caused by excessive running, cycling, jumping, or even due to strenuous daily activities. Poor form with exercises involving the glutes can also contribute to a strain as well as simply not adequately warming up prior to exercising. If you are experiencing symptoms such as pain when actively using the muscle or a dull ache during rest, it is important that you seek medical attention in order to assess your condition before further aggravating the injury. Taking basic preventative measures such as regular stretching of your hip flexors and other lower body muscles may help to reduce injuries related to gluteal strains.

What are glute strains?

Glute strains are an injury common in sports and everyday activities. The glutes include the gluteus maximus, medius, and minimus muscles located primarily in the back, top, and side of the hip. These muscles are deeply involved with athletic activities like running, jumping, and climbing that require pivotal motion at the hips. Glute strain is a traumatic stretch or tear to any of these muscles that causes pain radiating down into the buttocks and legs.

What are the symptoms of glute strains?

Glute strains are common injuries that can cause significant pain and prevent you from engaging in physical activities with ease. The symptoms of a glute strain include soreness and tenderness along the affected muscles as well as discomfort when trying to move the leg or lift it during walking, running, or other activities. Stiffness is often present after periods of rest and in severe cases, there may be swelling along the area of the strain. Pain can become worse with repeated movements involving those muscles.
