Trigger points in the Tensor Fasciae Latae muscle.

The Tensor Fasciae Latae muscle is located at the front of the hip. It originates on the iliac crest and inserts into the iliotibial band. This muscle acts to assist hip flexion, abduction, and medial rotation. Trigger points in this muscle will refer pain down the lateral aspect of the leg, and into the greater trochanter. Trigger points can also mimic symptoms of trochanteric bursitis.
