Flashcards in Spinal lab 1 Deck (17)
When asked the role of a muscle, ligament etc. what is a good go to answer?
What "chain" locks the SI joint in?
Posterior oblique chain
List two things the pelvis does.
Protection, Force attenuation
How does the pelvic girdle transfer forces?
Transfer forces from upper to lower and vice-versa
L5-S1 is a weight ______ joint.
SI is a weight _____ joint.
How many vertebrae make up the sacrum?
When does the sacrum fuse?
20-25 years old.
What two points does the inferior gluteal line run between?
AIIS to the lower border of the greater sciatic notch.
When palpating the medial border of the ASIS what is one way to describe a devience from regular positioning?
Outflare or Inflare
If a muscle is a component of the anterior or posterior oblique chain what is one important thing to remember with regard to assessment?
Assess the parts above and below as they are likely to also be affected. Ex. Adductor up to the pubic symphasis up to obliques
- assess in an 'X' pattern
Which glute muscle is the primary abductor?
What attaches to the ischial tuberosities & why is this important with respect to gait?
important because tight hamstrings unilaterally can pull on the sacrotuberous ligament, which will create pain in the L-spine
How is the greater sciatic foramen created?
Sacrospinous ligament creates the greater sciatic foramen
What attaches to the iliac crest (iliac tubercle)?
-IT band via the TFL
If one side of the symphysis pubis is higher than the other, what does that mean for soft tissue attachments?
Soft tissue attachments are tight, this could impact the rotation of gait
