Just a nomenculature question … At what point do you discriminate between TFL and ITB origin? Some prefer to term posterior fibres Glut med origin …Thoughts please. (mostly from physios requesting discrimination)
Good question Nat. At anatomy day we could measure the anatomy and only about 10 – 15mm of the area directly behind the ASIS is populated by TFL origin and posterior to that is just the ITB overlying the G-Med origin.
So I go for 15mm then call it “ITB / G-Med origin”
It is a good diagnosis and not that uncommon.
The patient knows where they have pain !
