  • 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,…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Skeleton Model Research Paper

    promote movement all having a synovial capsule that has a collagenous structure surrounding the joint, a synovial membrane that is in the inner layer of the capsule secretes synovial fluid and hyaline cartilage acting as pads on the ends of the articulating bones. There are 6 types of synovial joints this includes: hinge (i.e. the elbow and knee), pivot (i.e. between the first and second cervical vertebrae), ball and socket (i.e. shoulder and hip), saddle (i.e. between the first metacarpal and…

  • Muscular Skeletal System

    In pivot joints, the axis of a convex articular surface is parallel with the longitudinal axis of the bone. [16] A hinge joint is a common class of synovial joint that includes the ankle, elbow, and knee joints. Hinge joints are formed between two or more bones where the bones can only move along one axis to flex or extend. [17] Classification of joints The structural classification divides joints into fibrous, cartilaginous, and synovial joints depending on the material composing the joint and…
