Sample text

These joints are synarthroses (noun, plural) or synarthrodial joints (adjective). These names should be easy to remember because as you know, the prefix syn comes from Greek meaning “together” or “joined,”16 very descriptive of the function of this type of joint. Think of other uses of that prefix in words you have commonly used before such as synonym (words with like meaning). These joints are bound by fibrous connective tissue, known for its strength, and the fit between the two bony segments is very tight, with the joint surfaces highly congruent.

Rotary Motion In rotary, or angular, motion, the motion occurs in a circle around an axis. Rotary movements occur around an axis or a pivot point, so every point on the object attached to the axis follows the arc of a circle. Individual points on the object move at different velocities, and the velocity of each point is related to its distance from the axis of motion. An example of this is a game of “crack the whip,” commonly played on ice skates. The person who is the anchor is the center of motion, or the axis.

Chapter 13 provides kinesiological analysis of activities of daily living. Sequences of movement, joint requirements, and muscle activity are analyzed for daily activities such as moving around on the floor, moving from sitting to standing, and lifting; analyses of examples of work and household tasks are also provided. Chapter 14, written by an occupational therapist, provides special attention to upper extremity tasks and their analysis. Upper extremity tasks in this chapter are divided into tasks of the shoulder girdle, elbow, forearm, and wrist to provide the reader with in-depth analysis of common activities performed by these joints.
