Gluteus medius activation

img Gluteus medius activation

Our patient, Authur, is performing a gluteus medius activation exercise in this picture. By adding a Theraband that resists extension, it ensures he is activating this muscle instead of the TFL/IT band which tends to be overactive due to compensation with knee pain. A strong gluteus medius helps to promote proper knee joint loading in weight-bearing activities.
