Name the ligaments of the elbow. lateral collateral lig, annular lig, medial collateral lig, capsule
How many parts of the medial collateral ligament are there and what are their names? 3/anterior, oblique, posterior
What are the flexor muscles of the elbow? biceps brachii, brachialis, and brachioradialis
What are the elbow extensor muscles of the elbow? triceps, anconeus

What is the normal PROM for flexion at the elbow? 150-160 degrees
Normal ROM for extension at the elbow is what? 0 degrees, maybe slight hyperextension
What two things may be limiting factors for ROM at the elbow? bony opposition, tight anterior musculature & capusle
Elbow flexion is naturally limited in what position? mid-to-full pronation
A capsular pattern of the elbow limits _____>_____. flexion > extension
What is the closed packed position of the humeroulnar joint? full extension and supination
