Tensor fasciae latae origin

ASIS

1

Tensor fasciae latae insertion

Iliotibial tract (aka IT band)

2

Tensor fasciae latae innervation

Superior gluteal nerve

3

Tensor fasciae latae action

Stabilizes pelvis and helps to keep the knee extended by tensing the IT tract

4

Gluteus maximus origin

Sacrum, ilium (medial to posterior gluteal line), sacrotuberous ligament

5

Gluteus maximus insertion

Iliotibial tract, gluteal tuberosity

6

Gluteus maximus innervation

Inferior gluteal nerve

7

Gluteus maximus action

Laterally rotates thigh at hip joint; extends thigh at hip joint, especially when flexed or working against resistance

8

Gluteus medius origin

Ilium between anterior & posterior gluteal lines

9

Gluteus medius insertion

Greater trochanter of femur

10

Gluteus medius innervation

Superior gluteal nerve

11

Gluteus medius action

Abducts and medially rotates thigh at hip joint; steadies pelvis on leg when opposite leg is raised

12

Gluteus minimus origin

Ilium between anterior & inferior gluteal lines



13

Gluteus minimus insertion

Greater trochanter of femur

14

Gluteus minimus innervation

Superior gluteal nerve

15

Gluteus minimus action

Abducts and medially rotates thigh at hip joint; steadies pelvis on leg when opposite leg is raised

16

Sacral plexus

23

Gemelli action

Laterally rotates thigh at hip joint

24
