Active 4-point tfl stretch. This last tensor fasciae latae stretch is another active approach, this time working on one limb at at time. What this drill effectively does is builds strength and control in all of the muscles that are antagonistic to the functions of the TFL.So here we are at Body Works Sports Physiotherapy with Holly again, who’s a Field Hockey player and she’s going to be doing some pressure point release work through her tensor fascia latae muscle which is kind of the side in front of the hip and is really common when we have tight hip muscles or hip pain or ITB pain or back pain.The tensor fasciae latae muscle belongs to the group of gluteal muscles. Even though the tensor fasciae latae isn’t considered a thick muscle, it can easily be palpated since it lies above all hip muscles, particularly in athletes who engage and strengthen their hip muscles, such as hurdlers and weightlifters.Tensor Fascia Lata Trigger Point: The IT Band Syndrome and Hip Pain Culprit October 11, 2015 by Dr. Laura Perry The Tensor Fascia Latae ( also spelled Tensor Fasciae Latae or Tensor Fascia Lata, but commonly referred to as the TFL ) is a small muscle that lies just in front of the hip joint.Pressure release and stretch treatment of a canine tensor fasciae latae trigger point A trigger point in the dog’s tensor fasciae latae muscle is treated by applying constant gentle pressure to the most tender spot for approximately one minute and following with a stretch of the hip flexor musclesPatients will describe referral patterns from myofascial trigger points in the tensor fascia latae muscle, as pain in the hip and down the front side of their thigh (Images 1A and 2). Other symptoms include tenderness and pain, from the pressure of the patient’s own body weight, which prevents them from laying on the effected side.The tensor fasciae latae (tfl) muscle can cause pain and problems for runners and cyclists. It attaches to the top and side of the hip bone and runs down to the iliotibial band. It is a muscle group heavily used when running, cycling, sports played on a court, climbing and walking.Trigger Points in the TFL muscle can cause hip stiffness (particularly in the morning), alter body alignment by tilting the pelvis forward (excess lower back curve) or sideways (creating a.
