chronic hip flexion and the ascending colon

The ascending colon is anchored in part to the parietal peritoneum overlying the right iliacus muscle. Tension in the suspensory ligaments of the ascending colon shortens the underlying

muscle contributing to chronic hip flexion and external rotation. With such a visceral

restriction, working on the musculature alone will not make a lasting change in this

hip relationship.
