Treating the Tensor Fasciae Latae (TFL)

Posted by Judith Winer on

  Leg Muscle Anatomy Showing the TFL   Treating the Tensor Fasciae Latae - Stuart Hinds    The tensor fasciae latae (TFL) muscle plays a crucial role as it provides stability through the knee and pelvis   TFL trigger points are associated with a wide range of common hip and knee dysfunction are often encountered in a highly resistant form. Pain from these trigger points is often experienced at the level of the greater trochanter of the hip joint. The pain is almost always more intense when walking or running.     Stuart Hinds - Kinesio Taping for TFL Trigger Points...

Trigger Point Therapy - Treating Gluteus Maximus

Posted by Graeme Turofsky on

Thigh Muscles - showing the Gluteus Maximus and Gluteus Medius             Weak gluteal muscles can have wide-reaching implications up and down the kinetic chain The gluteus maximus plays a significant role in stabilizing both the sacroiliac joint and the knee joint. It does so by means of superior fibers, which attach to the aponeurosis of the sacrotuberous ligament, and inferior fibers, which attach anteriorly to the iliotibial band, providing tension down to the knee. Because the gluteus muscles are also called on to support and stabilize our core - they are called into action without our...

Treating Common Sports Injuries - Tendinitis of the Adductor Muscles

Posted by Judith Winer on

  Hip Adductor Muscles     Hip Adductors - Trigger Point Anatomy     Tendinitis of the Adductor Muscles - The pain is similar to a groin strain but onset is gradual and chronic in nature Inflammation in the adductor muscle tendons or tendon sheaths due to overuse can cause pain in the groin area. Sprinting, football, soccer, hurdling and horse riding can all cause overuse in these muscles. Unresolved injuries such as groin strain can also lead to tendinitis. The adductor muscles include the pectineus, adductor longus, adductor brevis, gracilis and adductor magnus and the tendons of any of...

Iliotibial Band (ITB) | Tensor Fasciae Latae (TFL) | Hip Restrictions

Posted by Judith Winer on

      TFL Trigger Points - Pain can refer midway down the lateral thigh and will often radiate to the knee The tensor fasciae latae (TFL) is a vitally important structure in providing stability through the knee and pelvis. This muscle is a junction for several chains, including the spiral and lateral chains. The anteromedial fibers are responsible for flexion of the thigh, while the posterolateral fibers provide stability to the knee.   Treating TFL Trigger Points - Stuart Hinds         The tensor fasciae latae assists various muscles, including the gluteus medius and minimus, rectus femoris, iliopsoas, pectineus,...

Injuries of the Hip - Trochanteric Bursitis

Posted by Arnold Fomo on

  Gluteus Maximus Trigger Points - Overview     Trochanteric (Hip) Bursitis is often associated with trigger points in the gluteus maximus Trochanteric bursitis commonly results when the bursa over the greater trochanter of the femur is irritated by repetitive stresses encountered during running activities. The greater trochanter is the bony prominence on the upper lateral portion of the femur to which many muscles of the hip and thigh attach. The trochanteric bursa lies between gluteus maximus and the posterolateral surface of the greater trochanter. Several other muscles cross this region and because they are generally rubbing across the bone...
