Glute max OIA originates on the posterior gluteal line of the illium, the dorsal surface of the sacrum and the sacrotuberous ligament. Inserts on the gluteal tuberosity and the iliotibial tract of the femur. Action externally rotates thigh and extends the hip
Glute Medius OIA Originates between anterior and posterior gluteal lines of the illium. Inserts on the greater trochanter. Action- internally rotates the hip and abducts the hip
Tensor Fascia Latae OIA Originates on the illiac crest and the ASIS and inserts on the iliotibial tract. Action- flexes abducts and internally rotates the thigh
Piriformis Originates on the sacrum S2-S4, sacrotuberous ligament and the ischium below PSIS. Inserts on the greater trochanter. externally rotates thigh. Can abduct and internally rotate when hip is flexed.
Obturator internus originates on the inner surface of the pelvis, from the obterator membrane and edges of the obturator foramen. inserts on the greater trochanter. Action externally rotates thigh and abducts flexed thigh
