Neuromotor control of gluteal muscles in runners with AT

Gluteal Muscle Activation in runners with Achilles tendinopathy

Hip kinematics are closely linked to foot kinematics via mechanical links and may be associated with increased foot eversion. Several studies have reported increased foot eversion during running in patients with Achilles tendinopathy (AT). Thus, the aim of the study is to compare the activation of the gluteus medius (GMED) and maximus (GMAX) – two muscles that alter hip kinematics – in runners with AT.
