How to use "Musculus obliquus externus abdominis" in context?
The external oblique abdominis is a muscle located on the outside of the abdomen. It runs along the sides of the lower abdomen and assists in stabilizing the abdominal wall. The external oblique abdominis may become tight and/or shortened when the body is in a standing or sitting position and when the abs are contracted. Injuries to the external oblique abdominis can range from minor to more significant, such as a hernia. Treatment typically includes a combination of rest, analgesics, and physical therapy.
