Differential Diagnosis of deep gluteal pain is challenging due to the complex anatomy of the region. In other related courses Tanya Bell-Jenje discussed sacroiliac joint dysfunction and deep gluteal pain syndrome and their symptoms. In this course, you will learn about Gluteal Tendinopathy also known as Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS), another condition that causes lateral and posterior hip pain.
