Gluteal Tendinopathy is a common condition that causes pain in the buttock and hip which can often travel down your leg. This can be from irritation of the hip tendons from doing too much too soon, or too little for too long, which causes them to become painful. Managing this condition should start with avoiding any aggravating activities, settling the pain, then slowly building the strength and endurance of the tendons.
Some hamstring top tips from our Dural physio
The posterior chain is a group of muscles that run down the back of your body (neck down to your toes), and work together as a team to keep us upright, jump, lift, and run. Training and developing the strength and endurance of these muscles can help reduce and prevent lower back pain.
At Dural Health, all of our Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Exercise Physiologists, and Dietitians provide long, private, one on one consultations so people can get the privacy, time, and attention they deserve.

Whilst stretching the neck can help temporarily, many people are unaware that strengthening the muscles of the neck and shoulder (with bands, weights, and even head stands) can actually help reduce neck pain and stop it from coming back.
