  15. _________: part of the pelvis where the ilium, ischium, and pubis intersect; socket of the hip joint into which the head of the femur sits.
  16. Which three ligaments in the hip work together to limit extension and hyperextension?
    iliofemoral, ischiofemoral, and pubofemoral ligament
  17. What three factors make the hip joint stable?
    • bony configuration
    • strong capsule
    • reinforcing ligaments
  18. Describe the open-pack postion of the hip joint:
    moderate flexion, mid-range lateral rotation, slight abduction
  19. Describe the closed pack position of the hip joint:
    • end range extension
    • medial rotation
    • slight abduction
  20. Anterior pelvic tilt causes hip ____ and lumbar ____.
    • flexion
    • extension
  21. Posterior pelvic tilt causes hip ____ and lumbar ____.
    • extension
    • flexion
  22. What are the joints of the knee?
    • tibiofemoral
    • patellofemoral
  23. The tibiofemoral joint has how many degrees of freedom?
    • 2
    • flexion/extension
    • distraction
  24. Describe the open and close pack postions of the tibiofemoral joint.
    • Open= 25 degrees or greater of flexion
    • Closed= full extension
  25. Describe the screw home mechanism of the tibiofemoral joint:
    the femur rotates medially
  26. The medial collateraql ligament stabilizes against (valgus or varus) forces and medial-lateral rotations.
  27. The lateral collateral ligament limits (valgus or varus) motions.
  28. What are the two functions of the patellofemoral joint?
    • increase angle of application adn moment arm of quadriceps tendon
    • protect quadriceps tendon during flexion
  29. Increased Q angle of the quadriceps muscle causes increased (medial or lateral) pull on the patella?
  30. The patella glides (proximally or distally) on femur during flexion, and recoils (proximally or distally) during extension.
    • distally (close pack postion)
    • proximally (open pack postion)
  31. Name the four muscles of the quadriceps group:
    rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis, vastus intermedius
  32. For the rectus femoris, what postion would cause passive insufficiency?
    active insufficiency?
    • hip extension, knee flexion
    • hip flexion, knee extension
  33. What position would result in passive insufficiency of hamstrings?
    active insufficiency?
    • hip flextion, knee extension
    • hip extension, knee flexion
  34. ______: provides final IR of femur (or ER of tibia) as knee reaches full extension.
  35. _____ _____: insertion fo the sartorius, gracilis, and semitendinosus.
    pes anserinus
  36. how many degrees of freedom does the talocrural joint have?
    1 (dorsiflexion, plantarflexion)
