fracture of the distal 5th metacarpal Boxer's or Brawler's fracture
Forced flexion of the finger from an axial load, causing rupture of extensor digitorum to DIP. Mallet finger
Thickened palmar fascia forms nodules over the flexor tendons causing a flexion contracture. Most common at ring and pinky finger. Dupuytren's contracture
occurs when the motion of the tendon that opens and closes the finger is limited, causing the finger to lock or catch trigger finger

vertebral slipping spondylolisthesis
lateral curvature of the spine scoliosis
classification system used for grading hip fractures Garden type
90% of hip fractures are in this direction posterior
Occurs at the origin og the sartorius, and is caused by knee flexion and hip hyper-extension. ASIS avulsion fracture
Occurs at the origin of the hamstring, and is caused by vigorous hip flexion with knee extension. Ischial tuberosity avulsion fracture
Occurs in obese adolescent boys. Will cause a limp and hip, thigh or knee pain, loss of IR, flexion and abduction Slipped capital femoral epiphysis
avulsion fragement of the lateral tibial plateau associated with ACL or meniscus tear Segond fracture

most common fracture of the ankle distal fibula fracture
Usually seen in deconditioned athletes, and is caused by quick plantar flexion Achilles injury
AKA shin splints medial tibial stress syndrom
Calcaneal apophystis, very common in 7-15 year olds sever's disease
pain on plantar aspect of calcaneus, will result in but are not caused by heel spurs Plantar fasciitis

flat foot Pes planus
first mtp joint sprain from excessive force of dorsiflexion or plantarflexion turf toe
Childhood fracture in which the physis is widened. Growth disturbances are uncommon. Salter Harris I
Childhood fracture that involves the metaphysis as well as the physis. Rarely results in functional deficits. The most common type. Salter Harris II
Childhood fracture that involves both the epiphysis as well as the physis. There is damage to the growth plate but prognosis is relatively favorable. Salter Harris III
Child hood fracture that involves the epiphysis, physis, and metaphysis. Can result in chronic disability. Salter Harris IV
Childhood fracture that is a compression of the physis caused by an axial load. Poor functional prognosis. Salter Harris V
As seen on a lateral radiograph of the cervical spine a widened predental space (greater than 2.5 mm)idicates what type of injury. Transverse ligament injury or laxity.
Can occur from a blow to the top of the head and affects C1. Jefferson fx

Through C2 body, unstable Type III odontoid fracture
Commonly occur at proximal 2/3 and distal 1/3 of the involved bone. Clavicle fx
When the humeral head slightly overlaps the glenoid in a normal AP radiograph. Cresent sign
AP view of the shoulder shows the humeral head to lie medial to the glenoid and inferior to the coracoid Anterior shoulder dislocation
On an AP radiograph the humeral head is lateral to the glenoid so that there is no overlap. Posterior shoulder dislocation
