Gluteal Tendinopathy: A clinical commentary
What is it about?
This paper examines the scientific evidence available and provides clinical insights into the pathomechanics, clinical features, diagnosis and management of gluteal tendinopathy.
Why is it important?
Gluteal tendinopathy is a prevalent condition, particularly in post menopausal women. The impact of this condition on quality of life is substantial, negatively influencing sleep, activity levels and work participation. The traditional management for lateral hip pain is not supported by evidence based practice. While high quality trials are still required to elucidate best diagnostic and management strategies, this paper outlines contemporary approaches based on evidence to date on this condition and the wider evidence available on tendinopathy. The authors add insights from their extensive clinical experience in the assessment and management of this condition.
