  • 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 move apart, is called extension. Anything beyond extension is called, Hyperextension which will result in an injury of the elbow to occur. The elbow joint’s function involves the flexing and grabbing of an object, the range movement (ROM) in the elbow…

  • Case Summary: Hamstring Injuries In Football

    Being a biarticular muscle group it may be stretched to extremes. When hamstring tears occur during kicking, either slow or fast movement, it involves concurrent hip flexion and knee extension. At deceleration, these muscles will contract, while being promptly lengthened. Therefore, they are performing eccentric contractions (Garrett et al, 1990.). It is well established that repeated eccentric contractions have the potential to damage muscle fibres (Armstrong et al,…

    joints and segments, and 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…

  • Achilles Tenon Analysis

    The Achilles tendon is located at the back part of the heel. The tendon receives blood supply from three sources: the musculo-tendinous junction, the paratenon and distally at the tendon insertion to the bone. (Karlsson 2015) The Achilles joins the heel bone to your calf muscles, with its main purpose is plantar flexion, which is the bending of the foot downwards at the ankle. The average age of a person suffering this injury is twenty-nine to forty with a large majority of all patients being…

  • Lumbar Spine

    Copra Pose: Extension of the Lumbar Spine: Also seen in Bridge Pose and Wheel Pose, Bow Pose, Pigeon Pose and Camel Pose. The degree of back bend will depend on the amount of space between each vertebra of the lumbar spine. The greater the space the greater the degree of back bend. Also the shape of the vertebra also plays a factor as some of the spinous process’ can be bent in angles that either restrict the angle of lumbar curve or increase it. There are other skeletal differences…

  • Lumbar Spine: A Case Study

    physical therapy for right knee 3 X 4. The prior review noted that Nancy from Dr. Kohan’s office explained that this request for additional physiotherapy for the right knee 3x4 is a typographical error. The latest progress report and appeal to UR indicated that the patient did report significant amount of improvement in regard to ROM and functional capacity from prior chiropractic treatment and PT. However, as per guidelines there are no clearly defined goals and patient’s progress in meeting…

  • Semimembranosus Tendon Case Study

    Semimembranosus Tendinitis With Rehab Tendinitis is a condition in which tendons become irritated or swollen. Tendons are bands of tissue that attach muscles to bones and help with joint movements. The semimembranosus tendon attaches one of the muscles on the back of the thigh (hamstring muscles) to the hip bone and the shin bone (tibia). This tendon helps in straightening the hip and bending the knee. Semimembranosus tendinitis often causes pain on the back inner side of the knee. CAUSES…

  • Jump Shot Movement Analysis

    preparatory phase is finally being used and put to action. This is usually characterized by near-maximal concentric activity in the involved muscles (Floyd, 2012, p. 207). During this phase the shooter will jump off their feet contracting their quadriceps using their hamstring muscles. The gastrocnemius, soleus, Achilles tendon, peroneus longus, peroneus brevis, tibialis posterior, flexor digitorum longus and the flexor halluces longus musles will act in plantar flexion making the shooter able…

  • Backwards Marching Research Paper

    many muscles, allow the necessary movements to be performed, such as plantar flexion, extension, and flexion, in order to execute backwards marching properly During the process of backwards marching, one lifts onto their toes in a fluid motion, this requires the use of the ankle joints. The ankle joint, also known as the Talocrural, is located in between the Talus, tibia, and fibula creating a type of synovial joint called a hinge joint. The hinge joint allows movement in only one plane,…
