What causes weak thigh, hamstring, and gluteal muscles in older people?

What causes weak thigh, hamstring, and gluteal muscles in older people?

Natural history: Gait analysis studies show thigh (quad muscle) inhibition and weakness as we age. It is a natural cause of limping (or knee hyperextended walking), which aggravates the hamstring tendons. Exercises to retrain the quad muscles can help. These exercises include straight leg raises, exercise bicycle, and gentle stairclimbing. Forcing yourself not to limp will also help. ...Read more

They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

Mri shows 1.5 inch lipoma deep in left gulteal muscle - could this be causing pain in  gluteal  muscle and siatica pain in same leg?

Typically stretching and nsaids are mainstay for treatment. ...Read more

What does "t1 and t2 hyperintense focus at L1 vertebral segment" suggest (from MRI reading)? Have pain, muscle spasms, hard tissue in low back/gluteal

May be inflammation: Hyper intensity my indicate inflammation or a hemangioma. Tough to say without looking at the images. I would see a spine specialist and get an opinion. The gluteal area is well below l1. So I do not believe those symptoms are related. ...Read more

Was it a tumor? You are less than 6 mos out from your surgery, so it is best to check with your urologist/ oncologist to make sure everything is ok. ...Read more
