  • Flexion Case Study

    Mrs Ogle’s gait pattern is most affected during stance phase. She has a lack of dorsiflexion of her left ankle throughout and increased left knee flexion during most of the stance phases. She has an overall decreased step length which is greatest on her left. Her left heel does not make contact with the floor. These observed deviations indicate that Mrs Ogle has a lack of left dorsiflexion range at her ankle. 1.0 Stance phase 1.1 Initial contact to loading response Mrs Ogle’s heel should be the first thing to contact the floor (heel strike).1 From initial contact to loading response her hip should be in about 20 of flexion, her knee should move from five degrees to 15 of flexion and her ankle should move from neutral to five degrees of plantarflexion.1…

  • Six Fundamental Movements Research Paper

    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 can have special rotations…

    no power is lost. Your knee joint, consisting of the tibia and femur, extends as your thigh muscles contract and your hip, which is made up of your femur and ilium, swings forward in a movement called hip flexion.

  • Elbow Joint Research Paper

    Movement: -The positioning of the bones forming the elbow joint produce the hinge synovial joint. This allows the elbow to make extensions and flexion. The extension involves the Triceps brachii and anconeus (the continuation of the tricep brachii). Flexion is involving the; Brachialis, biceps brachii, and brachioradialis. - The bending of a joint part so that the angle decreases and the two parts come closer together, it called Flexion. The straitening of a joint increasing the two parts to…

  • Deltoid Ankle Research Paper

    What would happen if we had no ankles? Ankles are crucial to our movement and play a huge part in moving our feet and walking. The ankle is a large joint made up of three main bones. These three main bones are the tibia, the fibula and the talus which all join together to make the ankle joint which helps control movement in your foot.The ankle contributes to a lot of lower limb stability which allows humans to run, jump and perform various other activities which require moving.The ankles…

    the gravitational force. The hip joint flexes doubles that of knee joint extension movements, and the smaller movement are associated with the planter flexion of ankle joint. There is a very little attention given to the examining the support leg / non kicking foot. A skilled soccer player executes a maximal instep generated flexion/extension joint movement 4, 3.2, 2.2 Nm/kg for hip, knee, ankle joint respectively where as the support leg knee, ankle and hip joint are much larger than those…

  • Summary: Volley-Ball Serve Bioanalysis

    first, as the body is still moving forward over this leg at takeoff. This leg will also reach full extension prior to the other leg, this means that it will contribute more force to the jump than the other as the bioanalysis will show. As well as the legs extending and muscles and joints flexing the torso will also extent to maximize the force able to be produced by the takeoff. According to () “The timing of the joint movements during the takeoff consists of shoulder flexion, trunk extension,…

    first key phase of the throw. It occurs when the athlete positions themselves side on to the target. The main purpose of this phase is so the body can get into a rhythm which will make it easier for the throwing action to be more efficient. At the start of the wind up the athletes feet should be shoulder width apart and should be side on to the target. The athlete then extends their knee and strides outwards. This helps to develop momentum which is used in later stages of the throwing motion.…

    The relative position of the patient and the therapist are standardized with the patient sitting upright and eyes front while the therapist sitting on a stood close to the arm being measured. For the elbow flexion angle being measured, the stationary body segment starts from the acromion of the scapula to the lateral epicondyle of elbow while the line joining the lateral epicondyle of elbow to the head of radius. The patient is given verbal commands to bend the elbow, bringing the wrist close…
