Iliofemoral Ligaments

Iliofemoral Ligament

anterior iliofemoral ligaments (relaxed)

Hip joint ([flexed, internally rotated)

The anterior iliofemoral ligaments are part of the hip joint and stabilize it. These ligaments become taut when the femur extends and externally rotates. They relax when the femur flexes and internally rotates. Tightness in these ligaments limits extension of the hip in lunging poses and forward splits. This limitation is overcome by tilting the pelvis forward and internally rotating the femur.
