No Difference in Gluteus Medius Activation in Women With Mild Patellofemoral Pain

Journal of Sport Rehabilitation, 04/23/2012

Similar levels of muscle activation were recorded in the gluteus medius (Gmed) subdivisions of the patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) and healthy participants during the different exercises. This is the first study to examine all 3 Gmed subdivisions in PFPS. Future studies using larger sample sizes should also investigate onset and duration of muscle activation in all Gmed subdivisions in both healthy individuals and those with PFPS.
