The Adductor Magnus

Not just for adduction anymore....

Silvrback blog imageAh yes... the adductor magnus. A commonly implicated muscle in hip dysfunction to include CAM lesions, femoroacetabular impingement, anterior femoral glide, as well as "hamstring insertional tendonitis" like symptoms (which would specifically be referring to the long head). 

You will recall that the adductor magnus consists of . . .

Counting and Layers

Know where your needle is!

I often say when I am teaching “If you don’t know where your needle is, it probably shouldn’t be there” and “ Know your anatomy!”.

An easy place to get lost at times is in the posterior cervical muscles or anterior compartments of the lower leg and arms. In addition to using an app like . . .

Needling and Instability

 

As people who needle, we often emphasize needling the paraspinal muscles associated with the segemental innervation of the peripheral muscle you are needling. For example, you may needle the L2-L4 paraspinals (ie: femoral nerve distribution) along with the quads, or perhaps the C2 PPD’s along with the suboccipitals. We do . . .
