The superficial muscles in the gluteal region consist of the three glutei and the tensor fascia lata. They mainly act to abduct and extend the lower limb at the hip joint. The reason they are called a complex is because they all work together in a coordinated sequence of contraction and relaxations.
Using the Waveblade will help balance out the tension and as such improve the coordination of the hip complex during different movements. It is also important to remember that once you have used the Waveblade it is very important to follow all your Release work with Move work – (see move section) to integrate the changes.
The gluteus medius muscle is fan-shaped and lies between to the gluteus maximus and the minimus. It is similar in shape and function to the gluteus minimus.
The gluteus minimus is the deepest and smallest of the superficial gluteal muscles. It is similar is shape and function to the gluteus medius.
Both the gluteus medius and minimus help with hip stability and as such as re referred to as the hip stabilizers which play an important in balancing the hip joint and pelvis.
