Kinesiology Abstract

PED 3480- UNCP

3-sided bone situated between 1st & 7th ribs Scapula
ONLY upper arm bone Humerus
Hip bone Illium
Large, triangular "tailbone"; wedged between two hip bones; back wall of pelvic girdle Sacrum
The remains of a tail; Useless Coccyx
12 curved bones designed for mechanical breathing Ribs
Spaces between the ribs Intercostal Spaces
Small, thick, powerful muscle located in the groove above the scapula's spine Supraspinatus
Highest insertion point of the four rotator cuff muscles Supraspinatus
If the Deltoid went dead, this muscle could abduct the arm on its own Supraspinatus
Helps hold arm away from the side of body as in holding/carrying a bag/suitcase Supraspinatus
Top member of the Rotator Cuff; anti-dislocation Stabilizer Supraspinatus
Below the scapula spine ridge Infraspinatus
This muscle cannot be found in primitive animals Teres Minor
Located on Posterior side of scapula blade, under Deltoid; tow members of Rotator cuff Infraspinatus/Teres Minor
Fuse together and attach on BACK head of Humerus ball Infraspinatus/Teres Minor
Prevents upward displacement of Humerus Teres Minor
Prevents backward displacement of Humerus Infraspinatus
Under the scapula Subscapularis
Sandwich-like muscle between shoulder blad and ribs Subscapularis
Insterted on the front of the humerus head ball Subscapularis
Prevents forward dislocation Subscapularis
THE major prime-mover in forward rotation Subscapularis
The shoulder pad muscle Deltoid
Comes into play ANYTIME the arm moves Deltoid
Its 3 heads converge into one thick tendon that attaches to a "knot" called the Deltoid Tuberosity Deltoid
Head of Deltoid responsible for flexion and horizontal adduction Anterior Head
Head of Deltoid responsible for arm abduction out to the side Middle Head
Head of Deltoid responsible for extension/hyperextension, and backward rowing Posterior Head
Large, broad, Flat, triangular shaped muscle. Largest muscle in terms of square inches Latissimus Dorsi
Along with Subscapularis, makes up the back of the armpit Latissimus Dorsi
Has 4 origins:T6-T12, L1-L5, Sacrum, and Illium Latissimus Dorsi
Even though its a "back" muscle, it works the shoulder, not the spine. Latissimus Dorsi
The "Pulling & Climbing" muscle. The "swimming" muscle Latissimus Dorsi
A round, thick muscle on the upper back that's Lat's little brother Teres Major Muscle
Large, broad flat muscle just beneath the skin Trapezius
Anatomically has 3 different parts with different nerves to each. Trapezius
Both a necka and shoulder muscle Trapezius
This is sore after carrying a suitcase all day when traveling. Trapezius
Flat, parallel muscules located in the middle of the back under the Trapezius Rhomboids
Draws the scapula toward the spine, such as rowing Rhomboids
Powerfully pulls the shoulder blade downward when the arms are overhead Rhomboids
Very strong flat, strap-like muscle of parallel fibers at the back side of the neck (found only in humans) Levator Scapula
Prime mover in lifting, raising, or "shrugging" the scapula upwards Levator Scapula
Strong neck stabilizer when doing sit-ups or push-ups Levator Scapula
Large, flat, triangle shaped chest muscle; forms the front of the armpit Pectoralis Major
