  1. Why does an individual require less effort to control an load eccentrically than concentrically?
    bc fewer motor units must fire to control that same load eccentrically.
  2. To initiate quick burst of force, plyometric training uses?
    the stretch reflex
  3. Which grade for joint mobilization would you primarly use for pain and muscle spasms?
    grade I and II
  4. Mobilization is what kind of procedure?
    mobilization is a passive procedure to increase mobility
  5. A pta observes a pt exercising. It becomes obvious that the pt is not challenged by the exercise routine and is receiving little benefit from physical therapy. The most appropriate action for the pta ould be to?
    discuss treatment alternatives with the PT
  6. Which activity is not appropriate for a pt with an inversion sprain?
    plantar flexion and inversion in the acute phase
  7. When stretching hamstrings to gain the end range of knee extension, the best position for the pt is?
    supine with the force applied at the distal tibia
  8. When doing gliding mobilization for the carpometacarpal joint of the first digit to increase flexion ROM, you should glide the metacarpal in what direction?
    same direction
  9. You have been asked to stretch the gastrocnemius muscle of a pt. Which position would you use?
    supine with knee extended
  10. A typical progression after ACL reconstruction using the patellar tendon procedure includes?
    Patellar glides then supine with all sides
  11. A pta positions a pt in prone with the knee flexed to measure passive hip extension, ROM may be limited in this position due to?
    rectus femoris being elongated over two joints
  12. Why are muscle setting exercise allowed in the maximum protection phase after a surgery or injury?
    there is no movement and no resistance which could disrupt early healing
  13. What is the plastic change of connective tissue?
    permanent lengthening
  14. Which ligament becomes taut in open chain knee flexion?
  15. Your patient is performing on exercise with free weights and is doing each exercise at high speeds, what should you tell the patient?
    slow down so that momentum does not completed the motion
  16. The most common surgical repair for an ACL reconstruction is?
    an intra-articular approach using and autograft
  17. What is the resting position for the Hip?
    flexed 30 degrees, abducted 30 degree, slight external rotation
  18. Which is an indication for joint mobilization?
    tight joint capsule
  19. Which of the following is least likely to result in soft tissue shortening?
  20. Which elbow muscle crosses more than one joint.
  21. Isometric exercise done at 10 degree of shoulder abduction and then at 100 degree of shoulder abduction will increase strength abduction will increase strength.
    only at or closely adjacent to 10 and 100 degrees of shoulder abduction
  22. A firm end feel is pathological when?
    it occurs before one would expect it to occur in.
  23. Charles Johnson has been placed on a PRE program by his PT. She has determined that Mr. Johnson 10RM is 40lbs and asks your the pta to monitor his performance while using the oxford technique. You would set the weights in the following order?
    heaviest to lightest

    40, 30, 20lbs
  24. Mr. Jones is a 78 y/o man who is starting a new ex program. All the following should be considered during his tx.


    except: older persons clearly gain more strength with isometric ex.
  25. The term "knee flexion contracture" indicates that?
    the knee jt lacks full extension
  26. What is the resting position for the shoulder?
    abducted 55 degrees horizontally, adduction 30 degrees, rotated so the forearm is in the horizontal plane.
  27. Buddy, a tree trimmer broke his calcaneus when he fell out of a tree and landed on his feet. He now has a well healed calcaneus but has limited inversion ROM. The therapist has asked you to mobilize his subtalar joint. Your glide should be in which direction?
  28. A pt has 2+/5 manual muscle test grade for hip flexion. In order to strengthen the hip flexors, the patient could exercise by doing eccentric leg lowering in supine or?
    doing hip flexion in the gravity eliminated position
  29. Quality of pn helps determine the stage of recovery and the joint mobilization technique if the pt resents with pn before tissue limitation, which of the following is indicated?
    use pn inhibiting mobilization techniques which will also help maintain joint play
  30. What is the resting position for the elbow?
    flexed 70 degrees, supinated 10 degrees
  31. Which of the following statements is false about a t after an ACL recontruction using a hamstring tendon graft procedure?
    Passive knee extension should be limited during the first 6 wks.
  32. Which statement abut delayed onset muscle soreness associated with exercise is true?
    Is most likely caused byy minute damage to muscle and connective tissue?
  33. Mr. Jones has had a knee surgery. On day of post-op you are to teach him quad setting. The purpose of this muscle setting exercise is to?
    Increase circulation to the area
  34. What aspect of exercise is controlled during isokinetic exercise?
    the velocity of the limb movement
  35. Given a pt with limited wrist extension, which mobilization technique will you use to increase his wrist flexion.
    volar glide function
  36. Neuromuscular inhibition refers to techniques used prior to the stretching maneuver in which reflex activity use to relax the muscle to be?
  37. What is an advantage of manual resistance exercise?
    the ROM allowed in the exercise can be more easily controlled
