Gluteus Medius Tears


The gluteus medius muscle originates on the outer surface of the ilium and inserts on the greater trochanter of the femur. (illustration here)

Its main action is to abduction (moving the leg away from the center of the body). It is also an important stabilizer of the hip during walking or running.
