What part of the spine is the rib cage joined to Thoracic
The thoracic spine is joined with the ribs, how does this impact the movement of this part of the spine limits flexion, lateral flexion
Which way does the spinous process point in the thoracic area and why is this? inferiority -it prevents hyperextention (helps to not squish ribs)
What is the job of the lumbar spine supports weight of upper body
What are the largest vertebrae Lumbar
What part of the spine has the most injuries Lumbar
What part of the spine has bigger articular processes Lumbar
What happens to the movement in the lumbar area due to the larger articular processes Limited ROM Flexion and extention are possible Limited rotation
Describe the sacral vertebrae 5 fused vertebrae
Describe the coccygeal vertebrae 4 rudimentary vertebrae
What section of the spine has no nerve roots Coccygeal
What section of the spine has no movement coccygeal
Which ribs go to the sternum and what is their name First 7, called True ribs
What ribs attache via cartliage to sternum 3 after the first 7 false ribs
What ribs do not attach to the sterum last 2- floating ribs
What kind of muscles are between the ribs intercostal muscles
What is the job of the intercostal ribs aide in respiration
What provides support for the upper extremities (not the spine) rib cage
What are the three bones of pelvis girdle sacrum and two iliac bones
There are three joints involved in the pelvic girdle, name them pubis symphysis, sacroiliac joints
What do the joints of the pelvic girdle provide? Limit mobility Provide stability
There are two types of ligaments for the spinal colum Intrasegmental intersegmental
What is Intrasegmental hold vertbrae together
What is the job of the intersegmental ligaments prevents excessive motion
Where is the anterior longitudial ligament located along the bodies of the vertebrae (anteriorly)
Where is the posterior longitudial ligament located along the bodoes of the vertebrae (posteriorly) inside the spinal column
What does the anterior longitudinal ligament limit? hyperextension
What does the posterior longitudinal ligament limit Flexion
Where is the supraspinatous ligament? posterior of spinous process and limits flexion
What is the Nuchal ligament thicker and stronger version of the supraspinous ligament from C7 up
