Usually a gluteal muscle strain is a fractional tear of tiny gluteal muscle fibers. The gluteal muscles are three muscles in the buttocks. This is atypical injury and it is more well-known to happen to runners and dancers.
Gluteal tension can be provoked by:
- overexerting the gluteal muscles and stressing it
- abruptly straining the gluteal muscles when unprepared or warmed-up
- overwhelming the glute muscles and insufficient rest
- concentrated impact to the glute muscles
Critical determinants that heighten gluteal strain are sports that need a surge of speed:
- basketball, football, soccer, and track and field. Conditional factors are coldness, frailty, high-intensity, and stiff glute muscles.
Indicators of a strained gluteal muscle are:
- a fragile glute muscle, pain and rooted soreness in the buttocks, tightness, and visible bruising on the buttocks (blood vessels are apparently ruptured)
At a physician visit expect questions about your symptoms, a medical background check, ongoing workouts and intense activity, and how the damage happened. The doctor will check your buttocks for bruising, acute-sensitivity, and pain when flexing the buttocks primarily counteraction (resistance).
Glute muscle strains are standardized contingent on the seriousness of injury:
- Condition 1, is a micro-tear of muscle fibers and can be healed with resting about 2 weeks
- Condition 2, is fractional tearing of muscle fibers and rehabilitation is up to 2 months
- Condition 3, is an avulsion (complete tear) of muscle fibers (it seldom happens and is an irregular strain with the glutes). Rehab is up to 3 months
A gluteal muscle rupture is going to require a MRI examination. It really helps to decide the recovery time.
