Suffer from buttocks pain? Acupuncture can help.

The buttocks are made up of three muscles: the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus. Buttocks can become painful due to some conditions.

Buttocks muscle strain is a very common condition causing buttocks pain. If buttocks muscles are strained, it can cause muscle spasm and tendon injury and causes pain, swelling, tenderness and stiffness. Trigger points can be found in these muscles.

Many other conditions can also cause pain in the buttock. For example

Piriformis syndrome: Piriformis is a small muscle that is located deep in the buttock region. If this muscle is tense and inflamed, it can irritate and compress the sciatic nerve causing pain and tingling at the buttocks ot numbness.

Sciatica: The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body and begins from nerve roots in the lumbar spinal cord in the low back and runs through the buttock area down to the lower limb ending at the feet. The pain of sciatica is sometimes referred to as sciatic nerve pain. Sciatica is pain caused by irritating sciatic nerve.

Slipped disk: A slipped disc or prolapsed or herniated disc is a condition in which the disc in the spine is torn and the central part inside comes out. This can cause pain at the buttocks.

Sacroiliac joint pain: sacroiliac joint is the joint between the triangular sacral bone at the base of the spine and the iliac or pelvic bone. If the area becomes inflamed, it causes pain at the buttocks.

Buttocks pain can be distressing especially no causes are found and nothing is shown on tests: the MRI show no problems, no tumor, no slipped disk, no nerve damage, no nothing. Blood test is normal: no sign of infection.

Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis in the low back, sacroiliac joint and the hip can cause buttock pain. The pain, when spreading from an arthritic joint, is often non specific.

Ligament and tendon inflammation: There are many ligament s and tendon at the buttocks. If these ligaments and tendons get strained and stretched, it will cause inflammation. A common way of stretching the ligament is by sitting with the low back unsupported in a slumped position. Coccydynia known as tail bone pain can also be caused by ligament and tendon inflammation around the tail bone.

Bursitis: There two main bursa in the buttock area_ the trocanteric bursa and the ischial bursa. If these bursa is inflamed, it can cause pain at the buttocks especially when sitting down.

Hamstring tendonitis: Hamstring tendon is inflamed in this circumstance causing pain at the buttocks which is noticeably when sitting down.

Acupuncture is used to treat buttocks pain effectively.
