 Hips & Glutes 

Injury Prevention & Rehabilitation

 Low back pain, buttock pain, hip pain, or leg pain can be caused by trigger points in the obscure gluteus medius and minimus muscles as well as the more recognized.... gluteus maximus. Tension in the piriformis and the lumbar paraspinal muscles can also contribute to buttock and leg pain and is often misdiagnosed as sciatica and even arthritis.

Hamstrings are the big muscles located at the back of your thigh.  The hamstrings are a group of 4 muscles.  Each hamstring crosses 2 joints – the hip and the knee.  This means when they contract they can either take your lower extremity back behind you (called hip extension) or bend the knee (called knee flexion.)  While the hamstrings can produce both movements at the same time, they can’t do so to their full capacity.
