Aperçu du livre

Surface Anatomy of the Lower Extremity - Kathryn Irish

HIP

Bony Structures

Greater trochanter: Place a flat hand on the lateral surface of the upper thigh (about a hands breadth from the iliac crest). Internally and externally rotate at the hip. A bony prominence should be felt bumping against your fingers.

Soft Tissue Structures

Tensor fascia latae (TFL): Attaches to the ASIS and the IT band. Palpate on the lateral surface of the hip during active hip flexion and internal rotation.

Iliotibial band (ITB): Attaches to the anterior iliac crest and the lateral tibial tubercle. Palpate on the lateral surface of the thigh during active hip abduction. You should feel a broad flattening.

Gluteus minimus: Inserts onto the anterior portion of the greater trochanter. Palpate superior to the greater trochanter during active hip abduction and internal rotation. The muscle belly cannot be palpated, as it lies deep to the gluteus
