When female athletes jump, the ACL takes a great amount of stress, causing an increase in the amounts of ACL tears. Another reason a female athlete may tear her ACL lies within the anatomy differences in men and women. A researcher for The Morning Call, Monica Deeb, states that “women have a narrower femoral notch -- the space at the bottom of the femur where the ACL runs. Because of the tight fit, many researchers believe the ACL is ‘sheared’ by the femur when too much stress is put on it” (Deeb C06). All in all, the femoral notch, being smaller in women than in men, is an explanation to the greater amount of ACL tears.

PRONATION ORIENTATION ACTIVITY 2 SKELETAL SYSTEM Label the following bones: Column Column Metatarsals Metatarsals Ribs Ribs Vertebral Vertebral Cranium Pelvis Scapula Mandible Clavicle Femur Humerus Phalanges Fibula Ulna ORIENTATION ACTIVITY 3 MAJOR JOINTS - What type of joint is it? JOINT | TYPE OF JOINT | Elbow | Hinge | Shoulder | Ball and Socket | Inter-Vertebral | | Knee | Hinge | Ankle | Gliding | QUESTIONS: 1. Define a joint? A joint is the location at which two or more bones make contact.
In this case Anterior Cruciate Ligament Revision surgery is performed. First, this requires removal of any screws or staples that were inserted in the acl repair. Next, repair any damage that occurred to other structures of the knee and use donor bone plugs to graft into the tunnels. After sufficient time has allowed for healing of the bone grafting, the next phase of the surgery will be performed. Then drilling new tunnels and reconstructing the acl again.
Virtually all synchondroses are synarthrotic. In symphyses the articular surface surface of the bone are covered with articular hyaline cartilage , which in turn is fused to an intervening pad, or plate of fibrocartilage, which is the main connecting material. Fibrocartilage acts as a shock absorber and permits a limited amount of movement at the joint. 3a Articulating bone: Articulating" means that the bones are moving relative to each other at a joint. The actual surfaces of the bones that might touch the other are the articulating surfaces, and the cartilage covering those surfaces is called articular cartilage.

Use the key terms to identify the joints described below (4 points): Key: cartilaginous fibrous synovial synovial typically allows a slight degree of movement fibrous essentially immovable joints hinge include the hip, knee, and elbow joints cartilaginous cartilage connects the bony portions Use the key terms to match the joint subcategories described below (4 points): Key: suture pivot ball and socket condyloid suture joint between most skull bones ball and socket hip joint pivot joint between the axis and atlas condyloid joint between forearm bones and wrist What characteristics do all joint have in common? (3 points) Even though some fibrous joints and some cartilaginous joints do not move, the two main characteristics of joints are to give our skeleton mobility, and to hold it together. Describe the structure and function of the following structures or tissues in relation to a synovial joint. (4 points) Ligament- Ligaments refer to a fibrous tissue that connects bones to other bones. Capsular ligaments are a part of the articular capsule that surrounds synovial joints.
Patient Diagnosis Project : Meniscus injuries 1. Patient Diagnosis : A. Definition / Description: Meniscus tear means Injuries to the crescent-shaped cartilage pads between the two joints formed by the femur (the thigh bone) and the tibia (the shin bone). (6) The meniscus acts as a smooth surface for the joint to move on and mainly works as a weight bearing weights. [pic] Menisci can tear in many different ways.
This pain is more intense during the menstrual period of a woman and may lead to excessive bleeding. The pain is because the endometrial cells that are also breaking up and bleeding from an area that is not supposed to. The pain is the same as a menstrual cramp pain, only that it can touch on the rectum and the lower back. Most women have also reported gnawing pain in the feet that disables them making them sick throughout the period of the menstrual period, and even shortly afterward. The pain is so intense, such that patients have reported that it is like someone is pulling out their insides.
Nurses can intervene at any point of the decline to improve function and quality of life. The purpose of this article is to discuss the major risk factors for knee OA and nursing interventions to help older adults with knee OA minimize disease symptoms. OA is a progressive and debilitating disease that commonly affects the hand, knee, hip, and spine joints (Goldring & Goldring, 2006). Elements of joints, such as the synovial lining, periarticular bone, and supportive connecting tissues, are adversely modified by OA with structural changes including
In the female athlete, there are several risk factors that can make them more susceptible to an ACL injury. These include anatomy, hormones, environment, and biomechanical and neuromuscular deficiencies in the kinetic chain. A neuromuscular deficiency creates muscle imbalances in the body. This can then lead to synergistic dominance; which occurs when a synergist muscle has to perform for a weakened prime mover (Clark, Lucett, & Corn, NASM Essentials of Personal Ftiness Training, 2008). For the purpose of this study, only biomechanics and neuromuscular deficiencies will be addressed.
