Seijas,, have recently published an article on a clinical application of tensiomyography with the title Gluteus maximus impairment in femoroacetabular impingement: a tensiomyographic evaluation of a clinical fact in which they have evaluated the mechanical and contractile properties of the gluteus maximus (GM) muscle in patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). The main hypothesis was that the clinical observation of GM pain would be evidenced by tensiomyographic impairment in muscle function. The results confirmed that the FAI is associated with impairment of contraction time in the GM of the injured compared to the healthy side. Impairment of the GM may be monitored to evaluate the response to conservative or surgical treatment. You can get the full article here.
