Effective treatment for glute strains

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.

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.

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.

Treatment for glute strains typically includes chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and massage therapy. Chiropractors can help assess your injury and provide treatment such as joint manipulation to reduce pain and restore range of motion. Physiotherapy can assist in strengthening the area, improving movement control, decreasing local inflammation and restoring optimal biomechanics. Last but not least, massage therapy may involve soft tissue tecniques to improve circulation and reduce the tension in the afflicted muscle group. It’s important to note that investing in proper recovery after a glute strain is imperative in order to prevent excessive tissue damage, prevent future re-injury, and promote improved healing time.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
