Buttock pain can be disabling and may arise from many different sources. Lumbar degenerative disc disease, lumbar facet dysfunction, lumbar disc herniation, piriformis syndrome, inflammation of the buttock and hip tendons can all lead to buttock pain. Diagnostic ultrasound examinations at the Centeno-Schultz Clinic can demonstrate muscle tears as well as inflammation of the tendons.
Patients may have pain in the buttock, posterior thigh, lower back, groin, hip and calf.
