ANSWERS Suggested Problem Solutions – Topic 3 1) For the shoulder joint articulation, briefly describe…. . a) the bones which articulate The humerus and the glenoid fossa of the scapula b) the degrees of joint freedom There are three degrees of freedom of shoulder joint movement – motion in the sagittal plane around the frontal axis, motion in the frontal plane around the sagittal axis, and motion in the transverse plane around the vertical axis. c) the normal movements of the shoulder joint using accurate kinesiological terms Shoulder flexion – from anatomical position in the sagittal plane to vertical Shoulder hyperflexion – from the vertical position motion in the sagittal plane beyond vertical posterior to the body Shoulder extension – return from flexion or hyperflexion to the anatomical position in the sagittal plane
