When Your Butt Pain Isn’t Due to Work, Family or Friends

Buttock pain isn’t just a nuisance; it can seriously disrupt your life. Here, we'll learn some common causes of buttock pain.

Sciatica may result from compression of the sciatic nerve, manifests as pain, tingling, & weakness in the buttocks & legs. Compression may originate from various sources, including herniated discs or foraminal stenosis.

Speaking of herniated discs, they can cause excruciating pain; pressing on nerves in the lower back & radiating through the buttocks & legs. Similarly, piriformis syndrome can mimic sciatica symptoms due to sciatic nerve compression.

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction, often exacerbated by pregnancy, injury, or muscle imbalances, leads to deep buttock pain, particularly when standing or walking. Similarly, hamstring tendonitis, resulting from overuse, can cause discomfort at the bottom of the buttocks where the tendons attach.

Trochanteric bursitis (inflammation of the bursae at the side of the hip) & coccydynia (tailbone pain), further contribute to the myriad causes of buttock pain.
