Finding the culprit

Yesterday's physio session at Ox city after the game revealed a new lesson after discussion with Leigh.

Player comes in complaining of tightness in anterior proximal thigh.

Q. Which muscle is it?

Process: Think what's likely to be tight in footballers? Running. What muscles originate from that area?

A. Narrowed it down to rec fem and sartorius. You had to palpate deep but resisted isometric strength test for sartorius came out on top. Resisted hip flexion did not.
