Inferiorly along the anterior surface of the sacrum to become the anterior SI ligament. 11). The ILL limits rotation and side-bending of L4 and L5, and forward motion of L5 on the sacrum. It is sometimes referred to as the suspensory ligament of L5. Posteriorly the SI joint is stabilized by an SI ligament complex composed of multiple components working synchronistically. Within this complex there is a common raphe separating the multifidus and gluteus maximus muscles. The raphe stretches from the posterior sacroiliac spine (PSIS) to the coccyx.

Of the femoral head in relation to the acetabulum. This needs to be kept in mind when evaluating children with hip clicks. Abnormal tension or tone in any of these muscles will affect the ability of the femur to be stabilized in the acetabulum and will distort the arch of movement of the thigh. This is of special interest in infants and newborns. Abnormal intrauterine position may result in asymmetrical muscle tensions. During passive range of motion testing, instead of an even smooth arc of circumduction, there may be some distortion of movement which could be misinterpreted as ligament laxity.

It has been described as the self-locking mechanism (Vleeming et al 1995). During gait, the ipsilateral sacrum moves into a relative nutation during the swing phases as the contralateral sacrum moves into a relative counternutation. Nutation increases SI joint compression, which prepares the joint for the load of heel strike. The ipsilateral sacrotuberous ligament tenses as nutation increases. Just before heel strike, the biceps femoris becomes active, further increasing tension on the sacrotuberous ligament (Vleeming et al 1995).
