  • Functional Movement System Case Study

    lunge, shoulder mobility, active straight leg raise, trunk stability push-up, and rotary stability. Also, three pass or fail tests, including, shoulder impingement clearing test, spinal extension clearing test and spinal flexion clearing test. Testing took place in the Health and Human Performance lab of the Royal Brougham of Seattle Pacific University. Each test received a score from 0-3 (21 points possible) or a pass/fail rating. After scoring and recording the FMS test results, the mobility test was used for areas that scored less than a 3. The areas checked for mobility on subject 1 included thoracic extension, ankle flexion, shoulder internal and external rotation, hip adduction, and hip flexion. In addition, for subject 2, the mobility areas checked included thoracic extension, ankle flexion, and hip adduction. Furthermore, tests for normal range of motion were conducted in accordance with in class instruction from Dr. Cannavan, the shoulder mobility assessment handout, and the Range of Joint Motion Evaluation Chart (2016) provided by the Washington State Department of Social and Health…

  • Six Fundamental Movements Research Paper

    between the body segments. These movements are flexion (frontal plane, and shoulder) extension, abduction, adduction, rotation, and circumduction. As explained in our text, flexion is a decrease in the angle between two body segments, whereas extension is an increase in the angle between two body segments. Abduction is a movement away from the body, whereas adduction is a movement toward the midline of the body. The rotation is the circular movement of a body segment around a long axis, and…

  • Case Study Of Anatomy And Physiology

    presence of ligaments. Some lie inside the joint but most of them are outside the capsule. These ligaments acts as strong ties holding the bones together. If a ligament is torn, it may result in faces. A sprain is the condition which results when some of the fibres are torn but the ligament remains intact. Certain terms are used to describe the movements of the synovial joints. These are : Gliding is sliding Flexion is bending Extension is straightening Rotation is turning…

  • Glenohumeral Joint Lab Report

    rotator cuff are teres minor and infraspinatus muscles posteriorly, supraspinatus muscle superiorly and subscapularis muscle anteriorly. The rotator cuff muscles are essential in shoulder movements and in maintaining glenohumeral joint stability. Besides that, the rotator cuff muscles also perform multiple functions, which are abduction, internal rotation and external rotation of the shoulder. Dynamic stability of glenohumeral joint Dynamic stability is the stability of the glenohumeral…

  • Pirani Score

    was no statistically significant difference between those that did and did not have a tenotomy. There were not leg muscle atrophy or discrepancy in the leg/foot size or length, this was attributed to the procedure of AHT that shortened the duration of the casts required to correct the forefoot adduction In this study, there were 2 relapses ; forefoot adduction (1 clubfeet, 2.2%), forefoot adduction and equines (1 clubfeet, 2.2%),this…

  • Musculoskeletal Dysfunctions Research Paper

    (Leng et al., 2013). This vicious cycle will lead to knee osteoarthritis. TFAs commonly have shorter prosthesis stance duration as they are incapable to balance at the amputated leg, feel the stump pressure pain or lack of confidence to transfer weight to the prosthetic leg. They rely on intact limb in walking, climbing stairs and overcoming ramps, soft ground (Kendell et al., 2016). Hence, the load at sound limb is consistently high. As a result, osteoarthritic changes are more pronounce at the…

  • Shoulder Injury In Sports

    A goniometer was used to test abduction, adduction, internal and external rotation. The first area examined was their shoulder abduction and adduction. The participants put both hands by their sides, then slowly raised both arms laterally at the same time and held them at their sides. They continued that motion until their hands are above their heads. Once their hands are above their heads, they lowered their arms laterally until they are back at their sides again. They repeated this five…

  • Baseball Swing Movement Analysis

    The launching position consists of the following movements: The abduction of the shoulders and the arms, the backward rotation of the spine, the extension of the writs, and the flexion of the hips (Van Such, 2016). For a right handed batter, the left shoulder joint will be adducted toward the body. The right shoulder joint will be flexed with the elbow up in the air and the scapula is abducting. Abduction occurs with the scapula because the scapula is being pulled away from the midline of the…

  • Splint Wearing Reflection Paper

    Jeanese Murdock Splint Wearing Reflection Paper Over a period of the first two days I wore my splint for six hours. First in the setting of driving and community mobility which was an hour. While at home I wore it for another 2 hours while doing ADLs and IADLs. Also, I participated in the leisure setting for 3 hours. I was only able to sleep in it for two hours. Saturday morning I wore the splint for three and a half hours deer hunting. I must say that the splint was comfortable, but it…
