Tarsals: 7 tarsal bones of the foot Talus: Articulation with leg Navicular: Directly above talus Calcaneus: Heel Bone Metatarsals: Bone before the Toes Base: articulates with tarsals Head: articulates with phalanges Phalanges: Toe bones Synovial (Diarthrotic) Joint Structures Synovial Joint: Joints that allow for extensive movement Joint Capsule: Made from an outer fibrous capsule the outermost on the synovial joint Articular Cartilage: Bone of the joint ends in a hyaline cartilage cap Bursa: are small synovial sacs between tendons and bones or other structures Joint Cavity: __________________________________________________________________________ Labrum: _____________________________________________________________________________ Meniscus:_________________________________________________________________________ ___ Ligaments: are fibers that bind bone to bone Tendons: are modified synovial structures, such as those encircling the tendons that pass through the palm of the hand Diarthrotic Joint Classifications Gliding: Hinge: allows for angular movement, such as in the elbow, in the knee, or between the phalanges of the fingers. You can increase or decrease the angle of the two bones with this joint Pivot: allows for rotational movement between two ones, such as in the movement of the atlas and the axis when moving the head to indicate “no”. They also occur at the proximal radius and ulna. Condyloid: allows significant movement in two planes. Condylar joints consist of a convex surface paired with a concave surface. The junction between the radius and scaphoid bone is a good example. Saddle: have two concave surfaces that articulates with one another. An example of a saddle joint is that between the trapezium and the first metacarpal of the thumb. This provides for more movement in the thumb than the condylar joint of the wrist Ball and Socket: consist of a spherical head in a round concavity, such as in the shoulder and the hip. There is extensive movement on these joint, yet they are inherently less stable due to the freedom of movement that they afford. Joint Actions Flexion: is a decrease in the joint angle from anatomical position. If you bend your elbow, you are flexing forearm Extension: is a return to anatomical position of a part of the body that was flexed. If you are looking at your toes and lift your head back to anatomical position, you are extending your head. Hyperextension: Extension of the part of the body beyond anatomical position Abduction: is movement of limbs in the coronal plane aeay from the body (abduct=to take away). Abduction is taking away a part of the body in a lateral direction Adduction: is the return of the part of the body to anatomical position after abduction. In doing “jumpjacks”, you are abducting and adducting in series. Lateral Rotation: moves the anterior surface of the limb toward the lateral side of the body Medial Rotation: turns the anterior surface of the limb toward the midline Circumduction: is the movement of a muscle in a conical shape, with the point of the cone being proximal Supination: is a lateral rotation of the hand. The hands are supinate when the body is in anatomical position Pronation: is medial rotation of the hands. When you turn your palms posteriorly from anatomical position, you are pronation your hands. Inversion: refers to movement of the feet. Turning the soles of the feet medially so they face each other is known as inversion Eversion: means turning the soles if the feet laterally. Protraction: is a horizontal movement in the anterior direction, as in jutting the chin forward Retraction: is the reverse of protraction. The jaw that moves from anterior to posterior is retracted. Elevation: means to move in a superior direction. Elevation of the shoulders occurs when you shrug your shoulder. Depression: is the opposite if elevation; it is movement in the inferior direction. Lateral Flexion: ________________________________________________________________________ Rotation: is the circular movement of a part of the body Plantar Flexion: movement of the foot in which the foot or toes flex downward toward the sole Dorsiflesion: flexion in a dorsal direction; especially: flexion of the foot in an upward direction Joints of the Body Shoulder Joint: is known as the glenohumeral joint because the glenoid fossa articulates with the head of the humerus. Glenohumeral Joint: Shoulder Joint Glenoid Labrum: a cartilaginous ring that surrounds the cavity Acromioclavicular Ligament: _____________________________________________________________ Biceps Tendon:________________________________________________________________________ Elbow Joint: is a complex joint having both hinge and pivot characteristics. The ulna locks into the humerus tightly but the annular ligament that wraps around the radius is commonly torn from the radial head when the forearm is abruptly pulled. Hand: ________________________________________________________________________________ Metacarpal: __________________________________________________________________________ Acetsbulofemoral Joint: ________________________________________________________________ Acetabular Labrum: a fibrocartilaginous ligament that forms a rim around most of the acetabulum of the hip joint and serves to increase the depth and surface area of the socket articulating with the head of the femur Iliofemoral Ligament: a ligament that extends from the anterior inferior iliac spine to the intertrochanteric line of the femur and divides below into two branches of which one is fixed to the distal part and the other to the proximal part of the intertrochanteric line Ligamentum Teres______________________________________________________________________ Tibiofemoral Joint: also known as the knee joint, largest most complex joint of the body Collateral Ligaments: any of various ligaments on one or the other side of a hinge joint (as the knee, elbow, or the joints between the phalanges of the toes and fingers) Medial Ligaments:______________________________________________________________________ Lateral Ligaments:______________________________________________________________________ Cruciate Ligaments: any of several more or less cross-shaped ligaments: as a: either of two ligaments in the knee joint which cross each other from femur to tibia Anterior Cruciate Ligaments (ACL): a cruciate ligament of each knee that is attached in front to the more medial aspect of the tibia, that passes upward, backward, and laterally through the middle of the knee crossing the posterior cruciate ligament to attach to the femur, that functions to prevent hyperextension of the knee and to keep the tibia from sliding forward in relation to the femur, and that is subject to sports injury especially by tearing Posterior Cruciate Ligaments (PCL): a cruciate ligament of each knee that is attached medially in back between the condyles of the tibia, that passes upward and forward through the middle of the knee crossing the anterior cruciate ligament to attach to the medial aspect of the femur, that functions to prevent hyperflexion of the knee and to keep the tibia from sliding backward in relation to the femur when the knee is flexed, and that is stronger and less subject to sports injury by tearing than the anterior cruciate ligament Patellar Tendon: the part of the tendon of the quadriceps that extends from the patella to the tibia Patellar Ligament: ____________________________________________________________________ Meniscus: a fibrous cartilage within a joint: a: either of two crescent-shaped lamellae of fibrocartilage that border and partly cover the articulating surfaces of the tibia and femur at the knee : semilunar cartilage: (1): one mostly between the lateral condyles of the tibia and femur—called also external semilunar fibrocartilage, lateral meniscus, lateral semilunar cartilage (2): one mostly between the medial condyles of the tibia and femur. Ankle: Talocrural joint, is formed from the tibia, the fibula, and the talus. The lateral malleolus of the distal fibula and the medial malleolus of the distal tibia are on each side of the talus, and all three bones share a joint capsule.
