Gluteous Medius treatment PTI Orthotic Lab Boulder

Gluteous Medius Syndrome


Gluteous Medius Syndrome usually occurs with pronated feet and the
longer of two legs. Pain and tenderness is located above the greater
trochanter. Excessive pronation causes excessive internal rotation of
the lower extremity which stresses the gluteus medius muscle.
Custom biomechanical orthotics to balance the foot may provide relief.
Also leg length discrepancies should be addressed. These patients
should also seek the services of a Physical Therapist as daily stretching
and strengthening of the hip abductors can be beneficial.
