That Pain in Your Bottom is Actually in Your Back

It can be embarrassing to admit about pain in your buttocks, but it’s not unusual for it to hurt if you have a back, spine, or joint condition. You might just need the right sort of medical professional to evaluate your pain and find the real source. Regenerative treatment could give you your mobility and life back.

At iMed Regeneration Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, our team of experienced rehabilitative specialists and chiropractors led by Drs. Patty Beecroft and Jason Keller, DC, can accurately diagnose the root cause of your pain and offer treatments like chiropractic adjustment that can relieve pressure and alleviate discomfort.  

When your back causes bottom pain

Your back could be directly responsible for sharp pains or aches in your behind. Some of the most common causes of pain in the buttocks include:

Arthritis

Arthritis in the joint that connects the hip to the spine can cause buttock pain due to the joint losing its cartilage cushion over time. This pain is normally a dull ache that can become constant. While arthritis cannot be cured, there are many ways to mitigate your pain and help you live a comfortable, active life.  

Sciatica

Sciatica is a sharper pain, which can also lead to tingling or numbness in the legs caused by pinched nerves in the spine. Usually, the pinching is caused by a herniated disc or narrowing of the spine due to compression. Fortunately, around 90% of patients with sciatica recover without surgery.

Degenerative disc disease

Degenerative disc disease can lead to loss of disc height in the lower back, also causing compression and pain in the buttocks, which can be worse when sitting. With proper treatment, pain can be relieved and you can enjoy your life.

Sacroiliac joint issues

The joint that connects the triangular bone at the base of your spine with your pelvic bone can become inflamed, causing intense discomfort at the tailbone. Reducing inflammation can often relieve pain at its source.

Treatment for back-caused bottom pain

At iMed Regeneration Center, we use a variety of non-invasive treatments to help decompress the spine, reduce inflammation, and relieve your pain. Physical rehabilitation can help manage most back and buttock pain and can include any or all of the following:
