Imbalances between the gluteal muscles and another muscle called tensor fascia lata commonly leads to the inflammation of fluid filled sacs (bursa). When the bursa becomes inflamed it can be extremely painful.
Osteitis Pubis has unfortunately become a much more common injury in Sports People, especially in the late teenage years. Whilst there are often a number of causes, there is usually a significant element of Bone Stress Reaction.
Osteitis Pubis or pubic bone stress injury is a condition that predominantly affects the sporting population and can be severely limiting.

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) occurs when the neck of the femur (the top part of the femur, just below the head) butts up against the acetabular rim, and can be caused by two types of impingement. CAM impingement occurs when there is a structural abnormality of the femur, with excess bone at the femur head-neck junction.
Even though pain at the back of thigh can be due to the Sciatic nerve, the reality is that pain in this area is often due to a number of other causes such as pain directly from your back, muscle strain of the glutes or hamstrings and even trigger points or muscle tension.
