Anterior/posterior tilt results in what motions? flexion/extension
Lateral pelvic tilt results in which motions? abduction/adduction
Pelvic rotation occurs in which plane and around which axis? transverse, vertical axis
Pelvic rotation results in which hip motions? internal/external rotation
Coordinated hip/pelvis/spine motion is called what? The lumbopelvic rhythm
Toe touch requires ___ degrees of hip flexion and ___ degrees of lumbar flexion? 90, 45
What kind of joint is the hip? diarthrodial tri-axial ball and socket joint
What is the closed packed position of the hip? combined extension, internal rotation, and abduction
What is the open packed position of the hip? 30 degrees of flexion, 30 degrees of abduction, and slight ER
A capsular pattern in the hip results in gross limitation of what motions? flexion, IR, and some abduction

What does coxa vara lead to? Genu Valgum
What does coxa valga lead to? Genu Varum
What condition lengthens the limb, reduces the effectiveness of the abductors, increases the load on the femoral head and reduces the load on the femoral neck? Coxa Valga
What condition shortens the limb, increases the effectiveness of the abductors, reduces the load on the femoral head and increases the load on the femoral neck? Coxa Vara
