TFL innervation superior gluteal nerve (+glu medius and minumus)
out of all the muscles innervated by superior gluteal nerve (TFL, gluteus medius, gluteus minimus), and knowing superior gluteal nerve is L4, L5, S1, what's the most superiorly placed muscle and therefore its most superiorly placed spinal level? TFL, L4 and L5 (the glut medius and minimus are L5 and S1)
tenses the iliotibial tract, thereby stabilizing the thigh on the leg; thigh abduction. TFL
ventrolateral aspect of the sacrum origin piriformis
greater trochanter insertion piriformis (and the glutes minimus and medius)
nerve of piriformis nerve to piriformis
where does the n. to piriformis come from? after superior and inferior gluteal nerves on common fibular portion of lumbosacral plexus (posterior), the nerve to piriformis has levels S1 and S2 according to drawing you memorized;-)
major spinal level of n. to piriformis? S1 (remember glute medius and minimus are half S1 so when piriformis gets compressed, guess who else suffers?)
laterally rotates an extended thight; abducts a flexed thigh piriformis, the Kung Fu muscle
spasms and hypertonicity of piriformis compress the sciatic n.
what structures pass inferior to the piriformis? inferior gluteal nerve and artery, pudendal n., Internal pudendal artery and vein, sciatic nerve, PFC
sciatica can produce S1 dermatome symptoms. Why? because the inferior gluteal n. passes below it and that is Gluteus Maximus (S1 on the bun)
sciatica can produce L5/S1 compression on the roots so causing gluteus medius (L5,S1), gluteus minimus (L5/S1), gluteus maximus (S1) problems with PFC so back of leg, too
the sciatic has 3 possible relationships to the piriformis under, common fibular through with tibial under, common fibular split over and tibial under
which position of sciatic to piriformis relationship presents the most likelihood of compression? common fibular piercing through piriformis and tibial under

originates from ischial tuberosity inferior gemellus
originates from inner surface of the obturator membrane and obturator foramen Obturator internus, between the superior gemellus at ischial spine and inferior gemellus at ischial tuberosity
why is the obturator internus cooler than superior or inferior gemellus? because it originates on the INSIDE of the obturator membrane and foramen, then wraps 90 degrees backward through the lesser sciatic foramen and stretches all the way across to the medial surface of the greater trochanter. Separates the gemelli!
S1 is not only gluteus maximus spinal level, but because it's S1 on the bun, is also (2) superior gemellus and obturator internus (since they are both innervated by n. to obturator internus, they would have the same spinal level)
just like piriformis, the Kung Fu muscle, the superior gemellus and obturator internus both laterally? rotate an extended thigh and abduct a flexed thigh. HiiiiYah!!
