Treating Gluteus Maximus Trigger Points - Dr. Jonathan Kuttner

 

Ischemic Compression Technique

 

 

Gluteus Maximus

The gluteus maximus is the most coarsely fibered and heaviest muscle in the body, forming the bulk of the buttock.

The upper fibers laterally rotate the hip joint and may also assist in abduction of that joint.

The lower fibers extend and laterally rotate the hip joint (ex. forceful extension, as in running or rising from sitting). 

Through its insertion into the IT tract, the gluteus maximus also helps to stabilize the knee in extension.

 

 

 Gluteus Maximus - Common Trigger Point Sites

 

Whilst trigger points in the gluteus maximus will often refer pain locally to the buttocks and hips, they are more commonly associated with lower back pain where they likely form part of the wider holding pattern.
