Deep Gluteal Pain Syndrome: Differentiating the Butt

About the Course:

Differentiating the source of buttock pain can often be challenging. Many structures can both refer to the region as well be the source of local pathology in this highly nociceptive area. In this Live Patient Presentation, we clinically assess, test & manage a patient presenting with deep gluteal pain. We differentiate her pain from other potential sources such as intra-articular hip, SI joint dysfunction and gluteal tendinopathy. Finally, we propose a management plan which includes prescriptive advice and patient-specific rehabilitation.

This course has both a theory and a practical section.
