An iliofemoral strain refers to the injury caused by damage (overstretching, tearing or a complete rupture) to the ilifemoral ligament of the hip. The iliofemoral ligament (also known as the Y-Ligament) streatches from the uppermost part of the hip bone down to the femur or thigh. It is notable for being the strongest ligament in the human body with a tensile strength of 350 kilograms or more. This strength arises from its role in supporting the weight of the human body and in walking. As such, damage to this ligament can be a major restriction in the performance of basic functions of daily life, in addition to the pain and discomfort involved. The products below can stabilize the iliofemoral ligament and help reduce the risk of this type of injury while involved in physically intense activity.
