Re: Sartorius Muscle pain

It would help to know how it first started and how long the pain has been present. First, make sure it is the sartorius muscle and not the rectus femoris as they originate close together. Sit down and lift the affected leg up like you are going to cross your leg to read a newspaper like a man does. This isolates the sartorius more. For the rectus femoris, ly down on your back and raise the affected leg off of table. Which one hurts more? That will clue you in on which muscle. You could have a strain, tendonitis or avulsion fracture but a good history would be needed to make that call....

An ideal cushion to help preserve metatarsal phallangeal joint alignment (e.g. bunion deformity and post-operative toe drift).
