Treatment For Gluteal Tendinopathy In Dublin, Ireland

Gluteal Tendinopathy is a condition in which the tendons of the glutes (or butt muscles) become painful, usually due to inflammation or degeneration caused by overuse. Pain due to gluteal tendinopathy can be felt around the hips and groin area, and even the low back. But it is most commonly reported that people with this form of tendinopathy feel a dull pain deep in the glutes, and around the pelvis.

It is usually caused by overuse of these muscles from repetitive movements such as running, cycling, or squatting for prolonged periods of time. Treatment includes physical therapy,  like deep tissue massage to release tension in the hip muscles and help treat inflammation. And an individually tailored exercise program, specific to your needs and goals.

If you think that you may have this condition then contact us today on (01) 254 4800 to book an appointment!

What Causes Gluteal Tendinopathy?

Hip pain physiotherapy

Tendinopathies are overuse injuries or repetitive strain injuries. The stress or demand put on the tendon is simply too much for it to handle.

Gluteal tendinopathy is a common cause of pain in the glutes and hip area. It is caused by overuse or repetitive activity, particularly where a lot of glute power and strength is needed, for example in sports like long-jump and football, running or rowing.

We provide a number of different treatments that can be used to treat gluteal tendinopathy, depending on your individual needs and goals.

Our most effective treatment is physical therapy – this involves the use of manual therapy techniques such as deep tissue massage to release tension in muscles surrounding the hips area and exercise therapy to strengthen the glutes, hamstrings, quads, adductors, and abductors of the hip, and core muscles.

Specialized treatments like laser therapy and intrinsic core strengthening can also be extremely effective in helping to relieve pain and weakness associated with or contributing to gluteal tendinopathy – these are particularly beneficial if you suffer from sciatica (pain down your legs).

Physical Therapy Care

Physical therapy is one of the most effective ways to treat gluteal tendinopathy, as it helps to reduce inflammation and strengthen the muscles surrounding your hip area for long-term resolution of symptoms and promotion of health and wellness, and countless additional benefits.

The pain associated with this condition can be relieved by physical therapy treatments which include deep tissue massage techniques that help release tension, tightness and discomfort in muscles surrounding your hips area, promoting normal tissue healing.

Your exercise and rehabilitation program will be based on your needs and goals – this is an important part of our physical therapy approach, as it allows us to provide you with the most effective care possible.

Laser Therapy 

Laser Therapy can be used to treat gluteal tendinopathy and we use it in combination with deep tissue massage and exercise therapy.

This treatment helps reduce pain and swelling associated with injury while also enhancing the body’s natural healing process – this means that you will recover from your condition much more quickly! And an added benefit of laser therapy is that it has been proven to speed up recovery times.

The laser technology we use produces a very comfortable, relaxing, and soothing sensation on your skin, it just feels warm – this helps you feel relaxed during the treatment which makes physical therapy treatments more effective.

Intrinsic Core Strengthening

If gluteal tendinopathy is causing you to live with sciatica, then our intrinsic core strengthening exercises can help.

The gluteus maximus muscle plays an integral role in stabilising your spine and pelvis – when the glutes are weak it means there’s increased stress on other muscles like the piriformis which can lead to pain and injuries. This is why it is critical to utilise our core correctly. Using the intrinsic core machine and doing prescribed core exercise will greatly offload the fatigued gluteal muscles allowing them to become strong and prevent future injuries.
