Introducing ‘dormant butt syndrome’

Here’s a new reason to get out of your chair: dormant butt syndrome.

That’s the term coined by US physiotherapist Chris Kolba, who says it explains many cases of knee, hip or back pain.

“The entire body works as a linked system, and a lot of times when people come in with knee or hip injuries, it’s because their butt isn’t strong enough,” he says.
