So external rotation of the femur automatically means that the ITBand/TFL is tight, correct? What causes those muscles to become tight anyways?

Basically a dropped hip. My ASIS aren't completely aligned and it's most likely due to tight muscles that were compensating for other muscles. Just curious on what those muscles could be
