  • Subtalar Joint Position

    In this article, different subtalar joint positioning during gastrocnemius stretching was investigated to conclude wether or not the position of the subtalar joint had significant effect on dorsiflexion ROM. . Patients with ankle oversee injuries, and patients with limited dorsiflexion ROM, are often prescribed stretches for the gastrocnemius calf muscle as part of their rehab program. (JAT, NATA). The idea behind this is that the tight calf muscles may have an negative effect on reaching adequate dorsiflexion, and some clinicians even go as far as monitoring and correct subtalar positioning while doing these exercises and stretches, believing that joint positioning will have an effect on the ROM. The positions of either pronation or supination( ankles rolled in or rolled out), change the way the ankle joint is aligned and how the muscles may contract and correct morion to keep a safe neutral ankle position. Considering the talus is the gliding bone within the ankle joint that allows for both dorsi and plantar flexion,…

  • What Is The Knee Joint?

    The knee joint is classified as a type of synovial joint, which is one of the most common and complex joints found in the human body.

In order to maintain its flexibility and function, several other ligaments join the knee joint in order to keep the attaching bones in place. The knee is the joint where the femur and the tibia meet; the patella (kneecap) is made of bone and sits in front of the knee. The knee joint is a…

  • Glenohumeral Joint Lab Report

    Introduction Glenouhumeral Joint The glenohumeral (GH) joint, which is also known as shoulder joint, is a multiaxial ball-and-socket synovial joint. This joint is responsible for connecting the upper extremity of the trunk. The glenohumeral joint is one of the four joints that comprise the shoulder complex. The joint is considered to be the most mobile and least stable joint. The articular surfaces of the glenohumeral joint are the head of humerus and glenoid fossa of scapula. The humeral…

  • Knee Joint Research Paper

    Healthy joint The knee joint is a synovial joint and connects the femur to the tibia and consists of two joints the tibiofemoral joint, which joins the tibia to the femur and the patellofemoral joining the kneecap to the femur. These two joints work together to form a hinge joint allowing the knee to bend and straighten and to also rotate slightly from side to side. Muscles There are two main muscles groups of the knee, the hamstrings, quadriceps and muscles of the calf all work to flex,…

  • 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…

  • Knee: Largest Joint In The Body

    Joint pains and inflammation causes Knee is that largest joint in the body. The knee is located at the juncture of three bones, the femur, the tibia and the patella. The femur (the upper leg bone) and the tibia (the shinbone) are connected by the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments. The joint is cushioned by the meniscus, a tough cartilage material, during movement. The patella (or kneecap) is a small bone, encased in tendons, that glides up and down in the groove on the top of the femur…

  • Joint Range Of Motion Essay

    Two joint range of motion (ROM) of two patients, one in upper limb and one in lower limb, are measured and the data is recorded. The first ROM measured is the angle made between shank and posterior thigh, which is the angle for knee extension. The relative position of the patient and the therapist are standardized with patient sitting over the edge of the bed, keeping the trunk straight, while the therapist standing on knees close the side of legs being measured. Moving and stationary body…

  • Wrist Joint Case Study

    The wrist or carpus is a highly mobile structure composed of many small bones and joints. In the anatomy of the human hand, a total of 13 bones form part of the wrist- eight carpal bones- scaphoid, lunate, triquetral, pisiform, trapezium, trapezoid, capitate and hamate; and five metacarpal bones which are joined along with two long bones of the forearm- the radius and the ulna (Platzer 2004). This complex system of articulations works in unison to provide a global range of motion for the wrist…

  • Causes Of Osteoarthritis: Chronic Degenerative Joint Disease

    Osteoarthritis is a chronic degenerative joint disease where the cartilage of a joint breaks down leading to pain, inflammation and the inability to move the joint ("Osteoarthritis"). “Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disease causing disability, affecting more than 7 million people in the United States. More disability and clinical symptoms result from OA of the knee than from any other joint” (Deyle et al., 2005). In this condition, the synovial joint of the knee is damaged overtime…
