Rhonboids

A, I, O

Minor

A-retraction of the scapula (adduction)

O-SP of C7 and T1

I-medial/vertebral border of the scapula level with the root spine of the scapula

Named for geometric shape

2

Rhomboid major

A, I, O

A- retraction of the scapula (adduction)

O- SP of T2 to T5

I-medial/vertebral border of the scapula between the spine and the inferior angle

Named for geometric shape

3

Gastrocnemius

A, I, O

A-flexion of the knee, plantar flexion of the ankle

O-condyles of the femur (medial and lateral)

I-calcaneus via the Achilles or calcaneal tendon

Named for shape and location

10

Synovial joints

General

Most mobile
Most numerous
Most complex/most components
Majority of the joints in the appendicular skeleton

225-229

11

Synovial joint structure

Joint capsule
Articular cartilage
Joint cavity
Ligaments
Meniscus
Bursa
Tendon (sheaths)

12

Synovial joint capsule


2 membranes


Joint capsule created by two membranes

Fibrous
Synovial

13

Synovial joint capsule

Fibrous membrane

outside, holds capsule together, made of dense irregular CT

14

Synovial joint capsule

Synovial membrane

inside, secretes fluid, made of loose areolar and adipose CT

15

Synovial joint articular cartilage



Hyaline cartilage: covers articulating surface of bone and is smooth & slippery

reduces friction between the articulating bones and asorbs shock

16

Synovial joint structure

Joint cavity

The space between the articulating bones

Allows free movement of articulating bones

Contains synovial fluid

17

Synovial joint structure

Ligaments

Dense regular CT, holds capsule together, interconnected with fibrous membrane

Are either extra or intra capular

18

Structure of synovial joints

Menisci

Pads made of fibro-cartilage, lie between articular surfaces and help direct the flow of synovial fluid

19

Synovial joint

Tendon

Tendon sheaths

Tube like bursae that wrap around tendons that undergo a great amount of friction (hands, feet)

19

Synovial joints

Bursa


Purse

Small cushion like synovial filled fluid sacs that are found in between moving parts and reduce friction between bones and tendons or ligaments

20

types of synovial joints

6

Hinge joint
Pivot joint
Saddle
Condyloid
Ball & socket
Gliding or planar

22

Types of synovial joints


3 divisions

Unixalial
biaxial
Multiaxial or triaxial

23

Unixalial

Joints

movement in one axis, one plane

Hinge:
Pivot

24

Hinge joint

Back and forth movement

Flexion/extension

Examples: elbow, knee, interphalangeal

25

Pivot joint


Rotation

Examples: atlantoaxial joints (C1-C2) or Radioulnar

26

biaxial joints

movement in 2 axes, 2 planes

Saddle
Condyloid

27

Saddle joint

found at the thumb

Gives us the opposable thumb action

Metacarpal/trapezium. Saddle like movement

28

Condyloid joint



Allows back and forth and side to side movement

Example: atlanto-occipital, radiocarpal joints

29

Multiaxial or triaxial

Movement in 3 or more axes or planes

Ball & socket
Gliding

30

Ball & socket joint

most moveable
hip/shoulder
