Flashcards in Transversospinalis musculature Deck (16):
Which muscles are identified as transversospinalis muscles?
semispinalis, multifidis and rotators
Transversospinalis muscles represent what layer of the true back?
Based on the name of this group, what is the origin - insertion of the transversospinalis?
transverse process origin, spinous process insertion
How many vertebrae can be attached to a single segment by transversospinalis muscles?
as many as nine vertebrae
What segment will represent the lowest attachment site for the semispinalis thoracis?
What is the innervation of the semispinalis thoracis?
dorsal rami of T1-T6 spinal nerves (cord levels T1-T6)
What osseous parts of the vertebral column serve as an origin to the semispinalis cervicis?
transverse tubercles of T1-T5 or T6 & articular processes of C4-C7
What is the innervation of semispinalis cervicis?
dorsal rami of C6-C8 spinal nerves (cord levels C6-C8)
What osseous parts of the vertebral column serve as an origin to the semispinalis capitis?
transverse tubercles of C7, T1-T6 or T7 & articular processes of C4-C6
What is the innervation of semispinalis capitis?
dorsal rami of C1-C6 spinal nerves (cord levels C1-C6)
What osseous parts of the vertebral column serve as an origin to the classic multifidis?
articular process of C4-C7, transverse processes of T1-T12, mammillary processes of L1-L5 and the dorsal surface of S1-S4 or S5
What transversospinalis muscle attached to articular and mammillary processes along the spine?
What is the innervation of the classic multifidis?
Dorsal rami of C3-C8, T1-T12, L1-L5 and S1 spinal nerves (cord levels C3-C8, T1-T12, L1-L5 and S1)
Contraction of multifidis cervicis will result in what movements?
alters the zygapophyseal capsular ligament response to load distribution
determines the cervical spine response to injury as evidenced by neck pain and is a significant contributor to postural control of the head and neck
Contraction of multifidis lumborum will result in what movements?
lateral flexion & rotation of the lumbar spine, maintains the lumbar lordotic curve and prevents entrapment of lumbar zygapophyseal capsular ligament during movement
