octopus-like large structures surrounding the glomerular capillary basement membrane and serving as a barrier to large molecular solutes - part of the filtration structure of the glomerulus.
Dense, irregular connective tissue with negligible available motion. Binds bones within a functional unit; disperses forces across the joined bones
Examples: Sutures of the skull, teeth embedded in sockets of the maxillae and mandible, interosseous membrane of the forearm and leg, and the distal tibiofibular joint
involves factors associated with moving systems and can be divided into kinetics and kinematics

Piriformis Syndrome II
Affected leg is often exernally rotated when relaxed,
Some re[ports suggest a 6:1 female to male perdominance
The leg doen't necessarily have to have been externally rotated for a long time - piriformis syndrome may be a result of faulty foot or spinal mechanics, gait disturbances, poor postures or sitting habits or any other factor that could cause that muscle to function abnormally.
Eccentric muscle action
With gravity, force generated by muscle is less than the force of the external load
Name the bones of the elbow.
Humerus, Ulna, Radius
Thus, what is the fiber that conduct nerve impulses toward the cell body?
Talocrural joint
tib - fib @ talus
dorsiflexion and plantarflexion
sagittal plane

Antagonist Muscle
Muscle or muscle group that has the action opposite to a particular agonist muscle
What are the different types of parallel fiber arrangement
Flatfusiformstrapradiatesphincter or circular
supraspinatus muscle
muscle that lies above the spine of the scapula; stabilizes the head of the humerus against the glenoid fossa and is active in abduction
mechanical advantage
the ratio between the force arm and the resistance arm
Flexor Carpi Radialis
O: common flexor tendon from medial epicondyle
I: base of second and third metacarpal

An example of not a good evaluation:
Randomly assessing areas

cartilaginous joint
a type of joint that has either hyaline cartilage or fibrocartilage between the two bones;
medullary cavity
hollow space in a bone surrounded by compact bone. Is generally filled with yellow marrow, composed of energy storing fat cells
O: tp c2-7
I: 1st and 2nd rib
A: flex, laterally flex neck; ipsilaterally rotate head and neck
Hip Rotation Test
The leg that is externally rotated returns short or the same length = short internal rotators.
The leg that is internally rotated returns long or the same length = short external rotators.
Pain on return from abduction in either external or internal rotation = pathology of the hip joint, to include joint dysfunction, osteroarthritis.

Note: shortened internal or external rotators can be due to altered pelvic, foot or ankle mechanics.
Pectoralis Minor
O: Anterior surfaces of 3rd to 5th ribs
I: Coracoid process of scapula
Foot suppination and pronation info
Supination- need plantar flexion, inversion, and adduction to create rigid position good for push off

Pronation- need dorsiflexion, eversion, and abduction to create a relaxed state, limited by the tibialis posterior
Outer layer of Joint Capsule – fibrous (membrane)
Collagenous tissue
Completely surrounds joint and blends with periosteum of bone entering joint
examples of flat bones
skull bones, scapula,
(usually house lots of red marrow)
Bones reshapes themselves based upon ...
the stresses placed upon them
Skeletal muscles resposible for producing major portin of total body heat means
body temperature is maintained and insulated throughout the body
the triceps brachii muscle (triceps)
muscle with three heads; located posteriorly and makes up the entire muscle mass of the posterior arm
When a muscle reaches a point where
it can not shorten any farther
Active insufficiency
Occurs to the agonist (the muscle contracting)
synovial joint
type of joint that has no direct union between the bone ends but a cavity filled with synovial fluid contained within a sleevelike capsule
Back School

(Tighten Stomach Muscles)
- Push Fingers into stomach and tighten

- Keep muscles comfortably snug

- Stomach muscles protect back, prevents slouch
what are the possible trunk positions?
- lateral trunk flexion
- trunk hyperextension
-trunk rotation
- forward trunk flexion
inflexibility in plantar flexors can lead to..
excessive pronation- constant dorsi flexion- weight on inner side of foot
What covers the articular surfaces ends of diarthrodial joints
Articular or hyaline cartilage covers the articular surface ends of the bones inside the joint cavity absorbs shock protect the bone
lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
a very common overuse condition of the common extensor tendon where it inserts into the lateral epicondyle of the humerus
Active Insufficiency vs. Passive Insufficiency.  What muscle does it occur in?
Active: Muscle is fully shortened, and cannot shorten anymore. Occurs in the agonist.
Passive: Fully stretched, and cannot extend further without causing damage.  Occurs in the antagonist, also in muscles that crosses multiple joints
Back School

(Bar Graph Intervertebral Pressure in Chair)
Low - High

- Seatted straight up (low): 130 kg
- Seatted slouched forward (middle): 200 kg
- Seatted slouched forward feet up (high): 275 kg
Newton's Law of Acceleration
A change in the acceleration of an object occurs in the same direction as the force that caused it- inversely proportional to the mass of the object. ex: force to run at half speed is less than force to run at top speed, to throw a call with speed it is necessary to accelerate the part of the body holding the ball
name the bones of the wrist and hand.
carpals, metacarpals, phalanges, radius and Ulna
What is a gliding joint?
nonaxial movement like that found in the carpals of the wrist
the humeral head articulating with the glenoid fossa of the scapula
what makes up the shoulder joint?
why venous return significantly lower in bed-ridden versus exercising person?
Muscles within the body, in addition to providing heat, movement, and restricting movement (posture), also work to aid in actively pumping the venous return of the blood to the heart. bedridden is not actively aiding the blood to flow back to the heart, but is instead relying on the passive force of the arterial blood flow to push the venous blood through the system of one-way valves back to the heart.VENOUS RETURN DIRECTLY RELATED TO CARDIAC OUTPUT (MEAN BLOOD PRESSURE OVER TOTAL PERIPHERAL RESISTANCE.)
What causes disc height loss?
Not a consequence of aging - disc height maintained or actually increased.
If accessory motion is prevented from occuring, then phsyiological motion
cannot occur to any substantial degree other than by joint compression or distraction
What are the Posterior Tilt Muscles of the Pelvis?
Glut. Max, Semimem, Semiten, Biceps Femoris.
Axes of rotation @ Saggital or AP axis
-Right angle to frontal plane of motion-Runs anterior / posterior-Movements Abduction Adduction
Why is a nerve impulse only able to pass across a synapse in one direction?
Conduction across the synapse involves a chemical rather than electrical transmission, and neither the dendrites nor cell body can release the chemical substance…only axons.
