Intro. to Human Movement 2

1. Be able to recognize the body regions from a diagram. 2. Be able to recognize specific joint movements for joints presented.

Structural anatomy of the arm and shoulder:

1. What bones comprise the appendicular skeleton? 2. Which bones are part of the pectoral girdle? The shoulder girdle? 3. What are the 4 joints of the shoulder? What bones/bony landmarks make-up the joints? 4. Which of the 4 is not a 'true' joint? 5. What is the function of the clavicle? 6. Be able to describe the bony landmarks of the upper extremity in anatomical and directional terms. i.e. The greater tubercle is the most lateral and superior protuberance of the humerus. 7. What is the flexor retinaculum? What does it do? Is there an extensor retinaculum?

Muscles of the shoulder girdle:

Recognize the Origin, Insertion, Action and Location of the following muscles: Biceps Brachii Latissimus Dorsi Pec Minor Serratus Anterior Triceps Brachii Coracobrachialis Levator Scapulae SITS Teres Major Deltoid Pec Major Rhomboid Trapezius

1. What is SITS? 2. What is Latissimus little helper? 3. What is the primary function of the Rotator Cuff? 4. What is the most anterior muscle of the RC? 5. What muscles tendon passes under the AC joint? 6. What muscle does Serratus share its serrated edge? 7. What are the three segments of Pec Major? 8. What are the muscles of supination? Pronation?

Muscles of the Forearm and Hand:

Recognize the Origin, Insertion, Action and Location of the following muscles: Brachialis Brachioradialis Flexors of the hand and wrist Extensors of the hand and wrist 1. How many muscles move the thumb? How are they paired? 2. Muscles of the forearm can be divided into 4 groups, what are they? 3. What is the biceps 'best friend'? Why? 4. What is the only muscle that runs the length of the forearm but does not cross the wrist? What muscle groups does it separate? 5. What muscle group is anterior/medial? Posterior/lateral? 6. What structures make up the carpal tunnel? What nerve passes through? 7. Most extensors originate at the ______ via the ______? The Flexors? 8. Are we stronger in pronation or supination? 9. Oppenens digiti minimi and opponens pollicus act together to allow what unique movement? 10. What nerve is compressed to create the 'funny bone' sensation? What bony landmarks does it pass near? 11. What is the fibrous sheet that binds the two bones of the forearm? What function does it serve?
