Sore Buttock!

#1
Im back pestering again!
When i run long distances, i seem to get a pain in my right buttock, at first it is negligible but after about 20 mins it starts to throb. I dont seem to get it when doing short runs when playing football, only when i actually go on a run!
Wondering if anyone has experienced this or knows what to do about it as its Pi**ing me off now!
Thanks again

Sounds like you have a slightly off balance running style mate which would be why it takes a while before effecting you.

You need to see a physio or gym instructor and probably use a treadmill in front of a mirror to see the problem, probably with your gait.
It might even be something with your running shoes.

Get someone who runs alot or has good knowledge of running to watch you run from left and right to check your form, all I can think of because you get it after running 20 mins or so, is that you are running in bed form, maybe leaning to much on one leg. If it is that, you are putting too much stress of your right glute muscle. Then againn it could be something else compleen tely, but check this first then go to a doc i'd say.

A seriously different skill set between these two occupations! Most gym instructors I know think tricep kickbacks are the answer to every fitness goal! I agree with the answer itself though.

Physio or possibly a chiropodist would probably help.

I mentioned those two mate because they will have completely different views regarding the cause :)
Wouldn't want H_C_R to get the wrong info about this though, it could become quite serious.

Nerve issues?

Similar to sciatica, where the pain is in the very base of your back and down into your arrse cheek, perhaps your running gait is aggravating a nerve?

We can all specualte though - as Lamri and 1MR suggested, go and see a specialist mate.

If your in the midlands i could recommend a good osteopath who could to the treadmill test to examine your gait.

Just a thought

Thanks for the advice guys! I am from Manchester, if anyones got any recommendations?
I am planning to go to a specialist running shop -Up and Running- to go and get some decent running traininers, to see if this helps.
If not then i'll probably go to a physio i think!

Some gym instructors ie personnel trainers like myself are also qualified physios.

It sounds like you may have damaged your piriformis muscle which is deepseated in your buttock ,some deep tissue manipulation from a sports pyhsio may be able to sort it out .This is an educated guess ,without having seen you physically.

I had pain in my left arse cheek like that. And it ended up being the piriformis muscle just like sailorbhoy67 has said.
I went to a Physio and after about 2 weeks i was fine.

Sounds like sailorbhoy wants to massage your ass!

Can't remember who said it was the sciatic nerve a few posts ago, but it soooo isn't.
