Explore hip Flexor Strain:Shakira said ‘Hips don’t lie’. Talking about hips, they are probably the first part of our body to get bloated. The Hip flexor is an important muscle group, which helps move the knees to the chest and the legs front to back and sideways. As many people sit on workstations all day, the hip flexors can become tight and stiff. So, how do we make them supple and trim again?

Vastus lateralis : greater trochanter & linea aspera of femur (origin) lateral quadriceps tendon to patella & tibial tuberosity (insertion). Action: extends knee

Gleutus medius : outer surface of illium (origin) postlateral surface of greater trochanter of femur. Action:abducts and medial rotates hip. Tilts pelvis on walking

In addition to the obvious upper buttock distribution of symptoms from pain and spasm in the gluteus maximus and gluteus medius, there may also be pain in the lateral thigh between the greater trochanter and the knee. This is because the tensor fascia lata muscle is also innervated by the superior gluteal nerve.

The gluteus medius originates on the outer surface of the ilium bone and runs to the greater trochanter of the femur. This muscle acts to stabilize the pelvis when standing on one leg and during walking. The gluteus medius is also a primary abductor of the hip. Its anterior fibers act to synergize flexing and internally rotating the flexed hip; its more posterior fibers synergize extending and externally rotating the extended hip.
