Deep Gluteal Pain syndrome is characterised by buttock pain that can radiate down to the leg and has a significant impact on the quality of life as well as participation in activities and sports. Complex gluteal anatomy and the potential for the involvement of other related structures lead to challenging differential diagnosis. In two related courses, Tanya Bell-Jenje discusses the differential diagnosis of sacroiliac joint involvement and gluteal tendinopathy. In this course, she will discuss the differential diagnosis of deep gluteal pain conditions and the management thereof.
This course aims to discuss deep gluteal pain and the possible causes of these symptoms and equip you to evaluate and manage patients with these symptoms
