We present a case of a female patient with left groin pain after intense yoga exercises. The patient presented abnormal pattern of gait with no swelling over the groin, thigh, or buttock. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a tear of the quadratus femoris muscle with an associated extensive hematoma formation. Patient was treated with a rehabilitation program consisting of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and physiotherapy. At the follow-up control, the patient had improved her pain and ...

Abstract Objectives Far fewer injury surveillance systems exist within community sport than elite sport. As a result, most epidemiological data on sports injuries have limited relevance to community-level sporting populations. There is potential for data from community club-based injury surveillance systems to provide a better understanding of community sports injuries. This study aimed to describe the incidence and profile of community-level Australian football injuries reported using a club-ba...

Buttock pain is a relatively common complaint among adolescent athletes and can have a very broad differential diagnosis.The authors present a previously unreported case of acute obturator internus and obturator externus strain in an adolescent male American football player. The diagnosis was made by MRI. The patient was treated with relative rest, physical therapy, and gradual return to physical activities as tolerated.Despite rarity of the hip external rotator muscles strains, it should be con...

Abstract Dysfunction of hip stabilizing muscles such as quadratus femoris (QF) is identified as a potential source of lower extremity injury during functional tasks like running. Despite these assumptions, there are currently no electromyography (EMG) data that establish the burst activity profile of QF during any functional task like walking or running. The objectives of this study were to characterize and compare the EMG activity profile of QF while walking and running (primary aim) and descri...

The short lateral rotators (piriformis, obturator internus, superior and inferior gemelli, obturator internus, and quadratus femoris) are functionally important muscles, significantly contributing to hip joint stability. They act as 鈥減ostural muscles鈥, holding the femoral head in the acetabulum during hip movements, thus are frequently monitored in gait analysis and for muscle rehabilitation post-injury. Despite the need to precisely identify and repair these muscles for stability postoperativel...

Objective The aims of this article are to review the imaging characteristics of ischiofemoral impingement (IFI), summarize measurement thresholds for radiologic diagnosis based on a meta-analysis of the literature and raise awareness among radiologists and clinicians of this entity.

article i nfo Background: The small muscles of the pelvis and hip are often implicated in painful conditions. Although the quadratus femoris and obturator externus are usually described as external rotators of the hip, little is known about how they change their lengths and moment arms during human movement. Therefore, more precise measurements defining the positions and directions for their maximal strength and stretch are needed to better describe their functions and guide the clinical approac...

Abstract There are no direct recordings of obturator internus muscle activity in humans because of difficult access for electromyography (EMG) electrodes. Functions attributed to this muscle are based on speculation and include hip external rotation/abduction, and a role in stabilization as an "adjustable ligament" of the hip. Here we present (1) a technique to insert intramuscular EMG electrodes into obturator internus plus (2) the results of an investigation of obturator internus activity rela...
