Could you describe "eccentric exercises" specifically for gluteuus minimus tendinosis? Thanks! (i'm asking for my wife.)

Could you describe "eccentric exercises" specifically for
gluteuus minimus tendinosis?  Thanks! (i'm asking for my wife.)

Muscle lengthening: In a dumbbell curl, the concentric phase involves flexing the arm by shortening the muscle. The eccentric phase occurs while straightening and lowering lowering the arm in a slow, controlled movement. The gluteus minimus abducts the thigh (moves it away from the other leg). The hip abductor gym machine will provide concentric exercise when pushing the legs apart, and eccentric as legs go together. ...Read more

Have RA & oa, chronic hip bursitis.Have had several steriod inject over the yrs.Now increased pain, MRI inflammation of ra, partial tears minimus/gluteus?

Have RA & oa, chronic hip bursitis.Have had several steriod inject over the yrs.Now increased pain, MRI inflammation of ra, partial tears minimus/gluteus?

See details: You have not asked a question. However, chronic hip bursitis may often be referred pain from the lower back and not a true bursitis. I would suggest an MRI of the area. If it is a true bursitis, the bursa can be surgically removed. However, from your description it seems the pain is likely related to lower back issues. Have you seen a pain specialist? If not, consider doing so. ...Read more

There : There are a few options to fill the gluteal region. The most well known is a gluteal implant procedure. Gluteal implants are similar to breast implants. However, these implants are infrequently embraced by legitimate plastic surgeons because they are associated with a complication rate nearing 50%. Fat transfer is gaining popularity, but still is an imperfect procedure. Fat transfer involves the harvest of fat from a donor site (usually the abdomen, thighs, and/or lower back). The fat is then separated from any blood or tumescent fluid. It is then transferred through small cannulas into the recipient region. In this case, it would be the gluteal region. The down side is that very thin people are not good candidates for this procedure. Additionally, some of the recipient fat is reabsorbed or nonviable. It is generally accepted that 30-70% of the fat will be reabsorbed at one year following the procedure. ...Read more
