Pilates exercises activate transversus abdominis (TrA) and obliquus internus
abdominis (OI) muscles (Endleman and Critchley 2008), as well as muscles involved in dynamic stability of the spine (Hodges 2003; Henry et al 2006).
5 cm--for me to reach a finger behind the obturator internus
muscle after having sharply dissected the suburethral tissue and fascia.
I try to see the muscles in the same way--puborectalis and pubococcygeous as Robyn's hand enters the vagina, ileo and isciococcygeous as I feel it move deeper, obturator internus
as it swivels, and piriformis at a deep, deep point--trying to connect the internal responses to the images I have been tracing from an anatomical atlas.
CT examination of the abdomen and pelvis (with oral and IV contrast) demonstrated a large, complex, multiloculated fluid collection involving the left gluteal musculature, left illiacus muscle, left obturator internus
muscle, left iliopsoas muscle, and the left iliopsoas bursae (Figures 2A, C and D) In addition, bone windows demonstrated erosive changes in the left sacroiliac joint (Figure 2B).

activity during pilates exercises: measurement with ultrasound scanning.
The most commonly targeted areas are the ventral intermediate thalamic nucleus (Vim), the globus pallidus internus
(GPi), and the subthalamic nucleus (STN).
Microelectrode-guided implantation of deep brain stimulators into the globus pallidus internus

A thrombus in his internal jugular vein (Lemierre's syndrome) and an abscess in his obturator internus
were subsequently found.
