View Full Version : A pain in the you know what
01-28-2010, 05:04 AM
Hey all, as you can guess, I seem to have a pain in the butt. It doesn't hurt when I'm moving, workingout, running, jumping, squats. The only time it bothers me is when I sit and put pressure on the left side of my glute about 4 inches to the right and 4 inches down from my hip. I hope the pic I have helps (black dot is where there is pain). Side note, I'm in law enforcement, so I normally carry about 10 pounds on my gun belt that puts pressure on my hips, I'm getting some suspenders in a couple of days to take the weight off. thanks
Edit: I didn't do anything that I can recall that would have aggrivated it, I noticed it on the rower about 3 weeks ago and its been real gradual. More of a nussance then anything else.

No back pain or shooting pain?
Usually pain in the butt is sciatica related.
Get a deep tissue massage and see how it does.

No back pain or anything shooting, but I did notice somethings today:
when I do this stretch:
It does feel better for a bit.
Also, I've been doing v-ups (pike sit-ups) lately and when I tried it today, I noticed the burning/pain.

Sounds like piriformis. I'm dealing with a similar issue.
The "Agile 8" has definitely been helping me:
Especially focus and devote more time to #3.

Thanks, yeah #3 looks to be the most brutal/helpfull one.

#3 is awesome. I use a lacrosse ball.

Piriformis aggravations suck ass.....as mine got really f'd playing hockey years ago and it still aggravates me to this day here and there. Sitting a long time definitely doesn't help it out. Watch your posture as you sit and get up and move around alot.
