  39. What is a capsular pattern
    Limitation of osteokinematic movement due to inert tissue structure
  40. What some capsular pattern characteristics
    • Inert structure is at fault
    • Active and passive motion is painful
    • Pain is at end range
    • Resisted movements are usually least painful
  41. Capsular pattern for shoulder
  42. Capsular pattern for elbow
  43. Capsular pattern for wrist
    All motions equal loss
  44. Knee capsular pattern
  45. Ankle capsular pattern
  46. Cyriax(hip) capsular pattern
  47. Katelborn(hip) capsular pattern
  48. Which muscle attachment is more stable orgin or insertion.
  49. Types of muscle fibers and examples
    • Strap-sartorius
    • Fusiform-biceps, brachioradials
    • Rhomboidal-rhomboid, glut max
    • Triangular-pectoral is major
    • Unipennate-hamstrings
    • Bipennate-
    • Multipennate-deltoid
  50. What are the 5 muscle properties
    • Normal resting length
    • Irritability-respond to neural stimulus
    • Contractility
    • Extensibility
    • Elasticity
  51. What is the agonist
    Prime mover
  52. What is the antagonist
    Muscle with opposite action of agonist
  53. What's a co-contraction
    Agonist and antagonist contracting
  54. What is a synergist
    Enhances the motion
  55. what is an assistant mover(synergist)
    Aids the prime mover
  56. What is a synergist stabilizer or fixator and example
    • Muscles that support the agonist
    • Ex. Abdominal muscle while ambulating
  57. What is a synergist neutralizer
    • Controls undesired actions produced by other muscles
    • Ex. Wrist extensors eliminate wrist flex ion during grasps
  58. What is passive tension
