KT Tape: Glutes
The gluteus muscles are the three main muscles that make up the buttocks. These muscles rotate the hip to the outside, extend the trunk of the body, and perform movements such as the squat and lunge. The gluteus muscles’ role in extending the legs is extended to stabilizing our core as we stand or move and providing a cushion as we sit. Various conditions can cause pain, and this KT Tape application can help to provide relief from it*.
CAUSES OF GLUTE PAIN
Causes include sitting for long periods of time (atrophy and pressure), strains from over-activity, injuries affecting the lower back or hamstrings, or any number of activities or injuries that can make any position or activity painful.
COMMON SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED WITH GLUTE PAIN
Pain can be caused by a number of different factors including knots in the muscles, inflammation of muscle attachments, inflammation of bursas, lower back problems, hamstring tightness or overactivity, or referred pain from the spine.
HOW KT TAPE CAN HELP REDUCE GLUTE PAIN
KT Tape can help reduce pain and inflammation for many common injuries*. These functions help to reduce pain and prevent compensation injuries – injuries that arise from abnormal movement due to existing pain*. Rest, massage, and strength training have also been shown to reverse the atrophic effects of sitting too long or inactivity and pressure. And though gluteus issues can be a real pain in the butt, KT Tape can help to relieve the pain and get you moving again*.
