Gluteal Tendon
Tears

The Gluteus medius, one of the three muscles in the buttock, is strategically located on the outer surface of the hip. Functioning as a pivotal contributor to pelvic stability, hip abduction (leg separation), and internal and external rotation of the hip, the gluteus medius plays a crucial role in various movements and activities. Despite its significance, the gluteus medius is susceptible to tears, which can manifest as a partial or complete rupture of the muscle.

This injury is frequently observed in runners and athletes, often attributed to sudden bursts of activity, poor flexibility of the gluteus muscle, traumatic incidents leading to tendinopathy (chronic inflammation of the gluteus medius tendon), overuse, or age-related degenerative changes. The symptoms associated with gluteus medius tears typically include pain on the side of the hip and weakness on the affected side. In some instances, the pain may extend to the buttock, contributing to weakness when lifting the leg to the side. While untreated tears are not life-threatening, they can significantly impact one’s quality of life and functional capabilities.
