Flashcards in Chapter 9 Formal Fitness Assessments Deck (16):
1

altered joint motion caused by altered length-tension relationships and force-couple relationships that affect the joints and cause poor movement efficiency

altered arthrokinematics

2

occurs when the kinetic chain is not performing optimally to control the body in all three planes of motion

altered neuromuscular efficiency

3

the ability of the neuromuscular system to perform functional tasks with the least amount of energy, decreasing stress on the body's structure

functional efficiency

4

the process where the knees move forward and in, also known as knock knees

knee valgus

5

outward curvature of the thoracic spine by which the spine is bent forward

kyphotic curve

6

a postural distortion syndrome characterized by an anterior tilt to the pelvis (arched lower back)

lower crossed syndrome

7

a transitional movement assessment designed to assess dynamic flexibility, core strength, balance, and overall neuromuscular control

overhead squat assessment

8

common postural malalignments and muscle imbalances that individuals develop based on variety of factors

postural distortion patterns

9

a postural distortion syndrome characterized by foot pronation (flat feet) and adducted internally rotated knees (knock knees)

pronation distortion syndrome

10

the HMS's way of finding the path of least resistance during movement

relative flexibility

11

hormone produced during pregnancy that loosens and softens ligaments

relaxin

12

the scapula protrudes from the back in an abnormal position

scapular winging

13

like overhead, performed on one leg.

single leg squat assessment

14

proportion and balamce between two items or sides

symmetry

15

a type of assessment that evaluates dynamic posture

transitional movement Assessment

16

a postural distortion syndrome characterized by a forward head and rounded shoulders

upper crossed syndrome
