A review of the anatomy of the hip abductor muscles, gluteus medius, gluteus minimus
, and tensor fascia lata.
sup] However, the gluteus medius, gluteus minimus
, adductors, and iliopsoas muscles may act as a deforming force during contraction, thus increasing the stress on the femur without weight-bearing.
There are three of them: gluteus maximus, the gluteus medius, and the gluteus minimus
In response, the three key muscles that give the buttocks their shape - the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus
- become less responsive and generally underactive, leading to poor muscle tone," he said.
Muscles Target: quadriceps Synergists gluteus maximus, adductor magnus soleus; Dynamic Stabilizers: hamstrings, gastrocnemius; Stabilizers: erector spinae, gluteus medius, gluteus minimus
Type: Front squat Dumbbells Instructions Stand with dumbbells grasped to sides.
Ultrasound is useful in evaluating the following tendons about the hip: iliopsoas, rectus femoris, sartorius, tensor fasciae latae and iliotibial band, common adductor, pectineus, distal rectus abdominis and conjoined tendon, gluteus medius, gluteus minimus
, and common hamstring origin.
The bursae can become inflamed at the gluteus medius tendon, iliotibial tract, or gluteus minimus
during repetitive flexing of the hip.
