Hey, everyone. It’s Matt from Kenhub. And
in this tutorial, we will discuss the origin, insertion, innervation, and function of the
gluteus medius. The gluteus medius and minimus muscles (also
referred to as the small gluteal muscles) are part of the dorsal gluteal musculature.
The purpose of this short video is the discussion of the gluteus medius, which is seen here
highlighted in green. The gluteus medius muscle forms the middle
layer of the gluteal musculature. The gluteus medius muscle originates between
the anterior and the posterior gluteal lines of the ilium, thus entirely covering the gluteal
minimus muscle. It inserts with the gluteus minimus at the
greater trochanter of the femur. Topographically, their caudal parts are in close proximity
to the piriformis muscle, which runs from the sacrum to the greater trochanter as well. It is supplied by the superior gluteal nerve,
a branch of the sacral plexus. The small gluteal muscles are the most powerful
abductors and inward rotators of the hip joint. A contraction of the ventral fibers results
in a flexion and inward rotation. The dorsal fibers perform an extension and outward rotation. Altogether, they play an important role in
the stabilization of the pelvis. This video is more fun than reading a textbook,
right? If you want more videos, interactive quizzes,

and say hello to your new anatomy learning partner, Kenhub! See you there!

  1.   ~~~~~ Thank you Kenhub — I love your vids – they are extremely useful and understandable. Thanx again      <3 

  2. I have gluteus medius tear at the right hip for years. I worked by little warming so it occur tightness when I left the gym. With the wrong exercises pain occurs at the iliotibial band. I healed with dry needling technic on iliotibial band but my g. medius was still tight (it was no painy).

    I took courage and went to the gym after 3 years. And I forced my legs with 65kg on leg press. After 2 months one morning I woke up with incredible pain in my hip.

    After 4 years now it still continuous like this. MRI shows that my gluteus medius teared near the bone and a issue with capsule. I tried a lot of different technics on my hip like PRP, dry needling, kinesio tape, strenghting, stretching etc.

    What would I do now

  3. Hey there! Hope you enjoyed this video and that it will help you kick some 'gluteus medius' in your next anatomy quiz! Tell us all about your anatomy success stories in the comments below! Don't forget, there's lots more engaging videos, quizzes and articles waiting for you right here!

  4. This 10 minute video covers everything you need to know about the upper glute muscle

  5. Shaking My Head! Be accurate! SGN is not sacral plexus , it is Lumbo sacral plexus (L4, L5, S1)- > Main nerve being L5 which if damaged cause a Trendelen berg sign(weak Glut Med,Min,&tensor fascia lata). There is no such thing as sacral plexus ! there is Lumbar (L1-L4) consisting Iliohypogastric&ilioinguinal (L1), Genitofemoral(L1,2),Lateral femoral cutaneus(L3,4), Obturator(L2,34)&femoral nerve! Lumbo sacral plexus= L4-S4 consisting sciatic (L4-S3), L4,5,6(SGN),L5,S1,S2(IGN),S1,2,3(Posterior femoral cutaneus nn. ),S2,3,4(Pudendal nn S2,3,4 keeps penis of the floor);
