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 . . .

What do you know about Ia afferents?

If you needle, you should know plenty...

 

This is a nice study looking at lateral gastroc activity and changing firing patterns with speed of movement. Great if you treat anyone or anything that walks...

 

Ia afferents

You remember them, large diameter afferent (sensory) fibers coming from muscle spindles and appraising the nervous system of vital . . .

The Quadratus Femoris

An often overlooked culprit

We often find clinically that the quadratus femoris as becoming the 1st dysfunctional muscle of the deep 6 external rotators (1) and its pain referral pattern can mimic the piriformis (2) and piriformis syndrome (3) as well as hamstring insertional tendinitis.  It has also been implicated in some cases of . . .
