Every now and then something jumps out at you and you go “WOW” it’s talking to ME. Maybe you too. Experts call it ‘Dormant Butt Syndrome” specifically researchers at Ohio State University and they claim your gluteus-maximus isn’t functioning as efficiently as it should and it’s caused by sitting too long or sleeping in the fetal position. Not sure about the second one but the first one has a lot of us guilty as charged. You see you actually have muscles in your butt and they are there to support you like of like a “shock absorber”. Dr Chris Kolba a physical therapist at the University says, “when those muscles are too weak the rest of your body tries to pick up the slack, which can cause back, hip and even knee pain”. “Stretching the front of your thigh, stretching your hip flexor and then doing exercises to specifically activate the glutes and the lateral hip as well.”
…and getting off your butt now and then helps too.
