an injured superior gluteal nerve can weaken muscles in the butt and gluteal region which can affect walking and balance and this can lead to less activity or limp or abnormal gate and this could possibly lead to long term joint inflammation and damage to that side's hip and knee or ankle joints.
do you have an injured gluteal nerve?
do you have joint inflammation or arthritis pain on that side?
