Buttock Injuries

There are a number of injuries that can cause pain in the buttock and upper leg. They are typically caused by overtraining or by running on slippery surfaces. They are described at http://www.injurytreatment.com.au/home/injuries/buttock/72  That page also gives treatment information, including photographs of stretches, but you will have to register for a free membership to access the treatment section. One of the stretches is the Gluteal, and I do it before and after each run. Another web page that gives photographs of buttock stretches is http://www.theosteopath.net/Buttock%20Stretches.html

Gluteal for buttock. Pull leg towards opposite shoulder
