    femur
  2. Hip joint considered?
    ball and socket joint
  3. 4 ligaments of the hip, what they prevent?
    • 1)Iliofemoral or Y ligament
    •            (prevents hyper-extension)
    • 2)Pubofemoral ligament
    •             (limits excessive extension and abd)
    • 3) Teres ligament  -   (limits adduction)
    • 4) Ischiofemoral ligament - (internal rotation)
  4. Muscle responsible for hip flexion
    • -Iliopoas
    • -Prectineus
    • -Rectus femoris
    • -Sartorius
  5. muscles responsible for hip abd
    • -Gluteus medius
    • -Gluteus minimus
    • -Tensor fasciae latae
    • -External rotators
  6. muscles responsible  for hip add
    • -adductor brevis
    • -adductor longus
    • -adductor magnus
    • -gracilis
  7. muscles Responsible for hip extension
    • -Gluteus maximus
    • -Biceps femoris
    • -Semitendionosus
    • -Semimembranosus
    • -External rotators
  8. list 3 muscles, ligaments of the hips (include movement caused and exercises to improve)

    Iliopsoas muscle -
    movement- flexion of hip, external rotation of hip, transverse pelvic rotation, (flexion of lumbar spine and lateral flexion)

    Exercises-supporting arms on dip bar and flexing hips to lift legs
  9. list 3 muscles, ligaments of the hips (include movement caused and exercises to improve)

    Rectus Femoris
    movements - flexion of hips, flexion of knee, and anterior pelvic rotation

    • exercise-
    •       leg extensions
  10. list 3 muscles, ligaments of the hips (include movement caused and exercises to improve)

    Adductor longus
    movement- adduction of hip, assists in flexion of hip, assist in anterior pelvic rotation

    • exercise-
    •      adduction of legs from an outward start
  11. tightness in the PIRIFORMIS muscle leads to......
    compression of the sciatic nerve
