Do You Have Pain on the Outside of Your Hip?

You might have gluteal tendinopathy if you have the following symptoms:

  • Pain on the outside of your hip
  • Pain when crossing your legs
  • Pain when lying on your side
  • Pain when walking, especially uphill or upstairs

Gluteal tendinopathy can be persistent and disabling, making it hard for you to enjoy activities like bushwalking or even getting a good night’s sleep. It can significantly impact your quality of life.

Good News!

A well-conducted research study has shown fantastic results for gluteal tendinopathy (Mellor et al., 2018). In this study, a physiotherapy program consisting of education and exercises was compared with a wait-and-watch approach and corticosteroid injections (see the infographic below).

The program includes 14 physiotherapy sessions over 8 weeks. The results were impressive:

  • The success rate of the physiotherapy group was around 80%
  • The injection group around 60%
  • The wait-and-watch group around 30%

Long-lasting Results

As you can see, the physiotherapy group had significantly better results. The success rate was much higher in the physiotherapy group after completing the program (8 weeks). More interestingly, the improvement lasted when measured again 52 weeks later.

Are You a Good Candidate?
If you’ve had pain on the outside of your hip for more than 3 months and with at least 4/10 pain intensity (0 – no pain, 10 – worst imaginable), you might benefit from this program. Furthermore, if you do not have severe low back or groin pain, you are even closer to the study participants.
