Treating Gluteus Medius Trigger Points - Stretching

Posted by Team NAT on

 

Stretching Gluteus Medius - Dr. Jonathan Kuttner

 

Gluteus Medius

This muscle is mostly deep to and is therefore obscured by the gluteus maximus, but appears on the surface between the gluteus maximus and the TFL.

During walking, this muscle, along with the gluteus minimus, prevents the pelvis from dropping toward the non-weight-bearing leg.

As with the gluteus maximus, trigger points in the gluteus medius may refer pain locally to the buttocks and hips, but are more commonly associated with lower back pain where they likely form part of the same wider holding pattern.
