Rectus femoris AND VASTUS MEDIALIS  

rectus femoris, semimembranosus, semitendinosus

: Extends the knee
REFERRAL: Anterior and medial knee

COMMENTS: These are two of the four quadriceps muscles. The trigger point in the rectus femoris muscle is located near the hip. The trigger point in the vastus medialis is just at the distal end. This usually is tender on people who have knee pain. Always check both trigger point areas on people with anterior and medial knee pain.
