In brief: Gluteus medius
Injury to the gluteus medius is not uncommon.
The gluteus medius is an important hip abductor analogous to the rotator cuff muscles that abduct the shoulder. The gluteus medius allows us to lift our hips sideways away fom the midline. The term tendinosis refers to an intrinsic injury to the tendon that attaches the muscle to the hip bone. Tendinosis can advance to tear with increasing injury.

In brief: Butt muscle problem
Gluteus medius tendinosis is an inflammation in one of the tendons of the gluteus medius.
The gluteus medius is one of three muscles that comprise the buttocks, and is important in flexion, extension, and rotation of the thigh bone during walking and running. Some people call this problem the dead butt syndrome.
