There is also attachment to fascia overlying the gluteal medius muscle and between the ilium and sacrum, to fascia covering the erector spinae muscle. It covers diagonally downwards and laterally towards the femur. The upper two thirds and superficial lower part of the muscle radiate more laterally and insert into the posterior aspect of a tendinous thickening of the fascia lata (the iliotibial tract). Fascia lata later inserts laterally at the tibia and fibula. Thus, gluteus maximus and tensor fascia lata aid in providing lateral stability to the knee.
