Gluteal tendinopathy is the most common tendinopathy found in the lower extremities. Yet often, it is a condition that goes undiagnosed or untreated promptly. Even after proper diagnosis and initiation of treatment, achieving adequate resolution of symptoms can be difficult. Treatment options are available for acute, mild, moderate, and severe symptoms, including those refractory to initial first-line treatment methods. Treatments range from non-invasive techniques, such as activity modifications, to more invasive methods, namely injections and surgical procedures. This article aims to review appropriate clinical manifestations and diagnostic tools available and provide a treatment algorithm based on the severity and chronicity of symptoms.
