Referred pain is pain that is felt in one region of your body, although the injury originates from another part of the body. When in a car accident, referred pain in the buttock can occur even though there may be nothing wrong with the muscle itself.
Due to the pelvis’ ringlike structure, injuries that may seem isolated can actually be a sign of injury elsewhere.
This injury can go initially undetected. But there may be a sign that is going undiagnosed and that is referred buttock pain. If you continue to have pain in the buttock or hip region after an accident, you may want to see a physician, as you may have a pelvic fracture due to your car accident.
