Flashcards in Biomechanics And Kinesiology - Pelvis And Hip Deck (8):
1

Three functions of the hip

- attachment site for muscles
- transmits weight from upper body to ischial tuberosities or to lower limbs
- supports organs involved in bowel, bladder and reproductive functions

2

Coxa vara

- angle is less than 125 degrees

3

Coxa valga

- angle is larger than 125 degrees

4

Lumbopelvic rhythm

- if the pelvis moves, so does the spine

5

Primary hip flexors

- iliopsoas
- sartorius
- tensor fasciae latae
- rectus femoris
- adductor longus
- pectineus

6

Primary hip adductors

- pectineus
- adductors longus
- gracilis
- adductor brevis
- adductor magnus

7

Primary hip extensors

- gluteus maximus
- hamstrings

8
