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?

Yes or Piriformis: The sciatic nerve runs underneath the piriformis muscle and typically does not irritate the nerve. However if the muscle is irritated or the nerve runs through the belly of the muscle (5-10% of people) it can press on the sciatic nerve and cause the sciatica type pain in the buttock region but also radiate into the leg as well. Typically stretching and nsaids are mainstay for treatment. ...Read more

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

Do overworked muscles of the arms cause painful numbing thru the whole arm when no longer in use? How to stop the pain & numbness ?

Please get that evaluated with a good neurovascular examination. ...Read more

Can being too skinny/underweight make my jaw/cheek muscles tight and painful? I have naturally protruding cheekbones, but never hurt until recently.

Can being too skinny/underweight make my jaw/cheek muscles tight and painful? I have naturally protruding cheekbones, but never hurt until recently.

Muscle spasms: Having tight and painful jaw muscles can be due to stress , especially in a young 21 year old. Bruxism, or grinding your teeth, can also be a symptom of over active jaw muscles. Since the muscle relaxants and pt haven't helped, i recommend an evaluation by your dentist to see if bite correction(splint, orthodontics, etc) can help. If you have done this, consider biofeedback or relaxation therapy. ...Read more
