Injured butt muscle while doing splits hurting. Is it gluteus Maximus ?

I injured my butt muscle while doing my splits and its been hurting for 2 months now. I was doin my splits in practice and I tried to reach and tied my shoe and yeah. Idk how to explain but it only hurts when I do my left splits because it on the left cheek and sometimes when I squat and sit on it on the part where it hurts. It s like a really sharp pain near the inside of my butt it really hurt when I lean down to it. I don t know if its a gluteus Maximus because my back or any other part of my body doesn t hurt but the left butt cheek near my butthole..

Hi and welcome to HCM

You must have injured the ischium, coccyx and might be hamstring insertion which is causing pain while doin splits and sitting as during splits your hamstrings and iliopsoas acts mainly.

Hamstring have their attachment on ischium. What you can do now is go for a clinical check up and a x ray coccyx lateral view and hip ap view. Then if all ok you can opt for physical modality for 2 weeks and then start exercise for hamstring stretching under supervision.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care.
