The piriformis muscle is a flat, band-like muscle located in the buttocks near the top of the hip joint. This muscle is important in lower body movement because it stabilizes the hip joint and lifts and rotates the thigh away from the body.
A psoas injection is an injection of a local anesthetic and steroid into either the right or left psoas muscle, depending on which side is affected. The aim of the injection is to reduce inflammation, irritation and swelling.
The psoas muscle is located in the lower lumbar region of the spine and extends through the pelvis to the femur. This muscle works by flexing the hip joint and lifting the upper leg towards the body. A common example of the movement created from this muscle is walking.
The scalene muscles are three paired muscles (anterior, middle and posterior), located in the lateral aspect of the neck. Collectively, they form part of the floor of the posterior triangle of the neck. The scalene act as accessory muscles of respiration, and perform flexion at the neck.
