Toronto, Canada, June 9, 2016 – Bel Marra Health (www.BelMarraHealth.com), a company that offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional products, is weighing in on a study showing that “dormant butt syndrome” may be to blame for hip and knee problems.
According to experts at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, “dormant butt syndrome” (DBS) may be to blame for knee, back, and hip pain in millions of Americans. DBS is a term coined to mainly refer to the weakness of the gluteal muscles and the tightness of the hips.

“Something that must be realized about the human body is that it all works together,” says Dr. Victor Marchione, spokesperson for Bel Marra Health. “Muscle groups that are close to each other have an impact on how each responds. So if someone is experiencing pain in the back and hips, the lack of strength in one’s butt could be an accurate source of that pain.”
Chris Kolba, a physical therapist at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, believes that it’s not just poor workout habits that are causing this weakness. Although this may be a contributor, DMS is also be caused by a sedentary lifestyle.
“One downside to living in the age of the internet and technology is that it literally puts people on their butts,” Dr. Marchione observes. “People are in front of computers all day, and that puts a lot of pressure and burden on the backs, hips, and gluteal muscles. Those who life a sedentary lifestyle really need to change their habits to help prevent some of the pain that so many people are experiencing.”
The butt acts as foundational support for the entire body. Many people refer to the core as just the abdominal muscles and forget that the rear end is also part of the core and needs to be strengthened too. Its role is just as vital, and the research by Wexner Medical Center says as much.
“This is something that can be resolved, but it actually requires a lifestyle change,” Dr. Marchione concludes. “Even small changes, such as taking breaks during the work day to get up and walk around, can really have an impact on a person’s overall activity.”
