What is Hip, Buttock And Leg Pain?
Hip, buttock and leg pain refers to any pain that is experienced around the side of the pelvis, the buttock and the upper leg. Hip pain, buttock pain and leg pain can occur independently, or concurrently.
Two common causes of hip, buttock and leg pain are:-
Sacroiliac joint pain – This joint is at the base of the spine where the sacrum meets the pelvis. Tightness in the ligaments and muscles surrounding this joint can make it susceptible to injury, particularly in those who spend long periods of time sitting.
Piriformis syndrome – This small muscle, located in the middle of the buttock, is used for running and walking. At times, it can suffer from overuse, causing the muscle and the surrounding tendons to tighten, causing pain.
What Are The Other Causes?
Other common causes include:
Wear and tear
The pain that runs into the leg can often be confused with sciatica but is often a result of the pain radiating from its original location.
