What type of joint is the hip? Enarthrodial

Ischiofemoral ligament Located posteriorly, extends from ischium to trochanteric fossa of femur, limits internal rotation
What is an increase in the angle of inclination of the femoral head? Coxa valgum
What is a decrease in the angle of inclination of the femoral head? Coxa varum
What is the angle of torsion & its normal degree? Angle formed by the femoral neck with the femoral condyles. 15 degrees is normal
What is anteversion? An angle of torsion greater than 15 degrees. Appears to lack ER and has a "toe in" gait.
What is retroversion? An angle of torsion less than 15 degrees. Appears to lack IR and has a "toe out" gait.
What is the Iliofemoral ligament & what are its attachments? Runs from AIIS and superior rim of the acetabulu to the anterior asect of the acetabulum anterior to the lesser trochanter. It checks IR and Extension

What runs through the femoral triangle? Femoral nerve, Femoral artery. & femoral vein
What are the ROM degrees of hip flexion/extension? Flexion: 0-130 degrees Extension: 0-30 degrees
What is the ROM of the hip abduction/adduction? Abduction: 45 degrees Adduction: 20 degrees
what is the ROM of the hip IR/ER? IR: 0-45 degrees ER: 0-50 degrees
What makes up the lumbar plexus? Anterior rami of spinal nerves L1-L4
