The treatment of buttock pain may include over-the-counter (OTC) medications, heat therapy, and gentle stretching exercises that target the buttock, hip, and lower back muscles. It is possible to relieve trigger point pain by gently massaging the superficial and deep gluteal muscles with a foam roller or tennis ball. Pain in the buttocks can be relieved by doing this.
By modifying your lifestyle, you should avoid sitting on hard or uneven surfaces and maintain a supported posture while sitting. As a result, the buttocks and pelvic structures are reduced in stress. An evaluation by a physician is recommended if self-care methods fail to relieve buttock pain within a few days or weeks or if the condition worsens.
Physicians who specialize in musculoskeletal disorders may be able to diagnose the underlying cause of buttock muscle pain in order to determine the appropriate treatment. If a medical emergency is diagnosed, such as cauda equina syndrome or a spinal tumor, nonsurgical treatments are usually considered before invasive treatments such as injections and surgery.
