Tensor fascia latae is innervated by the superior gluteal nerve, L4, L5 and S1. At its origins of the anterior rami of L4, L5, and S1 nerves, the superior gluteal nerve exits the pelvis via greater sciatic foramen superior to the pififormis. The nerve also courses between the gluteus medius and minimus. The superior gluteal artery also supplys the tensor fasciae latae The superior gluteal nerve arises from the sacral plexus and only has motor innervation associated with it. There is no cutaneous innervation for sensation that stems from the superior gluteal nerve.

nothing we do has the quickness, the sureness,
the deep intelligence living at peace would have.”
—Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
