1

What does TART stand for?

T-Tissue texture changesA-AsymmetryR-RestrictionT-Tenderness

2

What is the Physiologic Barrier?

Point at which a PATIENT can ACTIVELY move any given joint

3

What is the Anatomic barrier?

Point at which a PHYSICIAN can PASSIVELY move any given joint

4

Findings of ACUTE Tissue texture changes.

-Edematous-Erythematous-Boggy w/ increase moisture-Hypertonic muscles

5

Findings of CHRONIC Tissue texture changes.

-Cool dry skin w/ slight tension-Decreased muscle tone (flaccid)-Ropy-Fibrotic-NO edema (or decreased)-NO erythema

6

What are the findings of Asymmetry in Acute & Chronic conditions?

Acute - PresentChronic - Present w/ COMPENSATION in other areas of body

7

Restriction findings in ACUTE condition.

Painful w/ movement

8

Restriction findings in CHRONIC condition.

Rotation

26

True Ribs.

-Ribs 1-7-Attach to the sternum through costal cartilages

27

False Ribs.

-Ribs 8-12-Do NOT attach directly to the sternum

28

Floating Ribs.

-Ribs 11-12-Unattached anteriorly

29

Describe the attachment of Ribs 8-10.

-Each are connected by its costal cartilage to the cartilage of the rib superior*Example: The costal cartilage of Rib 9 attaches to the costal cartilage of rib 8
