Objective The block of nerves in the adductor canal is considered to cause a sensory block without a motor component. In this report, we describe a case of significant quadriceps muscle weakness after an adductor canal block (ACB). Case Report A 65-year-old female patient for ambulatory knee surgery was given an ACB for postoperative pain management.

Quadriceps weakness was quantified with a standardized rating system during the initial physical therapy evaluation, and 23 potential covariates were analyzed. Results: The prevalence of quadriceps weakness was 9%. Increasing the dose of the ACB anesthetic per unit of body mass index (BMI) increased the probability of quadriceps weakness by 5.0 times (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.9 to 13.3 …

The quadriceps femoris is a group of muscles located in the front of the thigh. The Latin translation of ‘quadriceps’ is ‘four headed,’ as the group contains four separate muscles: the vastus…

Adductor magnus – The adductor magnus is the largest of the adductor muscle group and helps to assist hip extension. The primary functions of the adductor magnus are adduction and medial rotation of the thigh (rotating the thigh towards the centre of the body) at the hip joint.

The quadriceps femoris muscle (/ ˈ k w ɒ d r ɪ s ɛ p s ˈ f ɛ m ər ɪ s /, also called the quadriceps extensor, quadriceps or quads) is a large muscle group that includes the four prevailing muscles on the front of the thigh. It is the great extensor muscle of the knee, forming a large fleshy mass which covers the front and sides of the femur. The name derives from Latin four-headed …

Quadriceps weakness is a substantial risk to patients in the immediate postoperative period. It has been well documented that patients with a high BMI are also more susceptible to falls and quadriceps rupture after total knee replacement 5, 6. This is critical in the immediate postoperative period if quadriceps weakness is associated with nerve blocks. The strength of the paper is clear …

What is adductor tendinopathy? Adductor tendinopathy is damage to the tendons of the adductor muscles high up in the groin. Physiotherapy is a successful treatment for adductor tendinopathy.
