    • The are both innervated by the dorsal scapula
    • and attached to the medial border of the scapula and spinous processes
  20. How to remember the innervation and actions of the elevator scapula
    • It elevates and retracts ( tilt glenoid ineriorly by rotating the scapula) the scapula 
    • it is attached to the transverse processes 
    • and the superior angle  of the scapula 
    • innervated by the dorsal scapular 
    • Dorsi always elevates her scapula whenever she feels inferior
  21. What are the most immobile types of joints?
    • The primary synchondroses

    epaxial muscles are those of the deep back for humans :

    • Humans - erector spinae, transversospinal muscles (multifidus, semispinalis and rotatores), splenius and suboccipital muscles.
    • epaxial is everything else

    • What profound flex to be a a mixed kid, you have both of the main innervation of the anterior forearm 
    • Always going the extra mile
  24. How to remember the attachement of the lumbricals
    lumberjack jack is always flexing his profound tendons and
  25. Carpi attachment
    carpis are always attached to the base of the metacarpal
  26. Where do the entensors attach to
    all attach to the extensor expansions
  27. where do all longuses go
    They all do to the most distal phalanx
  28. brevises
    They all do to the proximal place on the phalanx
  29. Which of the anterior forearm muscles have two heads
    • pronator teres 
    • flexor digitorum superficialis 
    • flexor carpi ulnaris
  30. Which muscles are attached to the common extensor tendons
    • Chip double dipped cherry

    • e. digiti minimi
    • e. digitorum 
    • ex. carpi ulnaris
  31. The palmar interossei
    • only attach to 2,4,5 digit.
    • I can't believe that inderPam lived to 245
  32. Flexor digitorum superficialis memories
    • She is so superficial and two faced, she has two heads
    • she is too superficial to got the distance and that is why she split before making it to the distal phalanx. She stops at the proximal and splits
  33. How to remember the innervation for all the muscles of the hand
    • all of them are innervated by the deep branch of the ulnar except :
    • lumbrical 3 abd 4 and the thenar muscles
  34. how to determine the types of joints

    latissimus attached to the floor of the inertubercles sulcus
  37. what does retract mean
    retracts is the same things as pulling the scapula back
  38. triangle of ausculatation
    • trap superiority 
    • lat inferiorly  
    • scapula laterally 
    • This is where you have less muscles
  39. where do they do spinal taps? and why?
    • L3-L5
    • spinal cord ends at L1-L2 so ththis will not hurt the spinal cord
  40. basilic vein where is it ?
    superficial vein that is close to the body  ( B for Basilic and body )
