Trigger Point Therapy - Treating the Hip Adductors

Posted by Julian Knight on

  Treating the hip adductors - Stuart Hinds   The adductor magnus is the largest of the adductor muscle group, which also includes the adductor brevis and adductor longus. The adductor longus is the most anterior of the three. The adductor brevis lies anterior to the adductor magnus. The lateral border of the upper fibers of the adductor longus form the medial border of the femoral triangle (the sartorius forms the lateral boundary; the inguinal ligament forms the superior boundary).   Adductor Magnus - Common Trigger Point Sites       Adductor Brevis and Adductor Longus - Common Trigger Point...

Trigger Point Therapy - Tensor Fasciae Latae (TFL)

Posted by Arnold Fomo on

  Treating TFL Trigger Points - Stuart Hinds       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. The tensor fasciae latae assists various muscles, including the gluteus medius and minimus, rectus femoris, iliopsoas, pectineus, and sartorius. Pain from...

  Stretching Psoas - Dr. Jonathan Kuttner     Click for Course Details   Stretching the Psoas Muscles The psoas major and iliacus are considered part of the posterior abdominal wall because of their position and cushioning role for the abdominal viscera. However, based on their action of flexing the hip joint, it would also be relevant to place them with the hip muscles. Note that some upper fibers of the psoas major may insert by a long tendon into the iliopubic eminence to form the psoas minor, which has little function and is absent in about 40% of people.  ...

Trigger Point Therapy - Transversus Abdominis

Posted by Team NAT on

  Abdominal Pain and Trigger Points - Overview   Trigger Point Therapy Courses / Home Study     Transversus Abdominis - Common Trigger Point Sites   All abdominal muscles work on a moment-to-moment basis as we move, providing the tension required to translate forces from the lower limbs to the upper limbs. The transversus abdominis is the deepest of these muscles, and each one (right and left) wraps up the organs horizontally. Transversus abdominis fascial attachments include the lumbar vertebrae, ribcage, iliac crest, and inguinal ligament. The muscle also connects directly into the linea alba, furnishing a link between the...
