Long time listener, first time caller.
I am looking for past wisdom on glute strains. Currently, I am getting ice picked in the left cheek where the leg goes into the hip. Pain gets sharper when going into a good morning position. It is not debilitating, but it is very irritating. Is there a particular episode that covers this type of issue, should I grab the handy lacrosse ball and sit on it, or…? Any ideas. I have a PT test in 3 weeks and would like to be somewhat functional…if possible.
If this was covered already in this forum, my apologies for my laziness. Thanks.
Just got back from sports medicine for that “glute strain”. Signs point to sciatica. MRI scheduled. Awesome.
How have you been addressing the glute strain?
Have you seen any improvements in the situation?
Is your Piriformis tight?
This can irritate the sciatic nerve.

I have been doing the daily RX with yoga. The situation is specific to running an bending over. When I run, it feels like someone is stabbing me in the left glute (high and to the outside). After a while, I can feel pain on the inside of the thigh (more toward the quads). Then my left glute gets exhausted; followed by dull pain in my knee. Bending over, it feels like my left hamstring is forever tight.
Are you warming up enough before running?
Are you in an organized position when running?
Have you had anyone look at your running technique?
It sounds like it could be a running technique error.
The sports medicine people are going to do a running analysis as well – to see if it is not one, the other, or some combination of both nerve and technique error.
Well, the MRI states the following:
i think you should definitely look at your posture both when do and dont run. as kaitlin says if youre not well organized when you run you’re stressing the discs which can lead to your diagnosis.
