Passive mechanical properties of lumbar erector spinae and gluteus medius
muscles were investigated in this study.
The strong stimulated response of the right gluteus medius
also elicited notable accelerations in the backward direction that could not be sufficiently balanced by stimulation of the remaining targeted muscles.
Subject side lying, test leg in neutral hip extension and aligned parallel with their torso.
The main functions of the gluteus medius
, gluteus minimus, and tensor fascia lata muscles are the abduction and the internal rotation of the leg (Donofrio, Bird, Assimos, & Mathes, 1998; Willick, Margherita, & Carter, 1998).
Salvatto loves the versatility of this exercise, which engages the abs as well as the gluteus medius
and hamstrings to take pressure off the psoas.
We recorded EMG signals bilaterally from muscles approximately coincident with those targeted for stimulation in neuroprosthesis recipients: tibialis anterior, soleus, vasti, semimembranosus, gluteus maximus, gluteus medius
, adductor magnus, and lower erector spinae.
Using eight to 10 video cameras, 21 retroreflective markers and 16 electrodes simultaneously, researchers measured the activation of seven muscles (iliacus, gluteus maximus, gluteus medius
, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis, hamstrings and gastrocnemius) in both the kicking and supporting legs; as well as two additional muscles (hip adductors and tibialis anterior) in the kicking leg only.
Once in the peritrochanteric space, trochanteric bursitis can be debrided, the iliotibial band can be fractionally lengthened, and tears of the gluteus medius
can be repaired with suture anchors.
Electromyography has shown that the gluteus medius
muscle (GM), and to some extent the tensor fascia, are active during the stance phase of running, corresponding to a hip abduction moment (Mann et al.
1999) reported semimembranosus, biceps femoris, and gluteus medius
There are indications that the two-incision THA causes significant gluteus medius
and minimus muscle destruction, so muscle sparing it's probably not," he said.
