The gluteus medius originates on the outer surface of the ilium bone and runs to the greater trochanter of the femur. This muscle acts to stabilize the pelvis when standing on one leg and during walking. The gluteus medius is also a primary abductor of the hip. Its anterior fibers act to synergize flexing and internally rotating the flexed hip; its more posterior fibers synergize extending and externally rotating the extended hip.

In addition to the obvious upper buttock distribution of symptoms from pain and spasm in the gluteus maximus and gluteus medius, there may also be pain in the lateral thigh between the greater trochanter and the knee. This is because the tensor fascia lata muscle is also innervated by the superior gluteal nerve.

What is hip bursitis? Bursitis is irritation or inflammation of the bursa. A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that acts as a cushion between tendons, bones, and skin. There is a bump on the outer side of the upper part of the thigh bone (femur) called the greater trochanter. The trochanteric bursa is located over…
