Gluteal Amnesia: It is not only our brains that have the habit of forgetting, butts (hips) can also suffer from amnesia. Actually, it is a medical condition, which is called Dead Butt Syndrome or Gluteal Amnesia. As the name suggests, it basically engages your glutes, which are missing their main function.
The root cause of Gluteal Amnesia is definitely prolonged sitting and maintaining a sedentary lifestyle, which results in weakening of the gluteal muscles. For example, if you are working for long hours, sitting in front of a computer without taking breaks, or driving for a long time, you may be at risk of getting dead butt syndrome.
What is this disease?
During this problem, the person’s gluteus medius (hip bone) gets swollen and it becomes difficult to function normally. This happens because when we sit in the same position for a long time, the blood circulation stops. This not only causes the problem of numbness and pain in the hips. Rather, some other side effects are also seen, such as it can also cause cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
If your hip flexors are not stretched enough, it can also lead to dead butt syndrome. People who run the wrong way can also suffer from this syndrome. In addition, people who are obese or deficient in vitamin D, or vitamin B12, who drink alcohol can also become vulnerable to this disease.
The primary symptoms of Dead Butt Syndrome are pelvic and lower back pain. The best way to manage this condition is to take regular breaks from sitting and do light stretches or walks. Good nutrition also helps to prevent this. (Disclaimer: The information and information given in this article is based on general assumptions. Hindi news18 does not confirm them.
