Hip Powerpoint 1
(hip joint) is found between the pelvis and the femur
Prevents hyperextension of the hip joint during standing by screwing the femoral head into the acetabulum
Located inferior to iliofemoral ligament; Also reinforces the anterior capsule
limits extension and medial rotation (posteriorly)
ligament extending from pubic bone to anterior superior iliac spine, forming lower border of abdomen
adductor longus,sartorius and inguinal ligament. Also houses femoral n., v., a.
separates gluteus maximus and ITB from greater trochanter, common site for friction bursitis
lies between the gluteus maximus & the vastus lateralis.
Seperates inferior part of gluteus maximus from ishial tuberosity; often absent
positioned between iliopsoas and the articular capsule, serving to reduce the friction between these structures.

increase pain with bowel movement or coughing and anterior pain ininguinal region presents a _____ _______
Gluteus medius involvment
lateral hip pain, pain during loading response and midstance
posterior pain with pushing off during spring
angle>20 degrees: results of internal femoral rotation, squinting patella, and toed in gait
angle of torsion < 15 degrees: results in external femoral rotation, toed out gait
iliac crest contusions
hip pointers management
removal from competition, stretching as tolerated; pad injured area
usually secondary to overloading during eccentric muscle contraction
