Presentation on theme: "Muscle Info… General Info: -Muscles constantly pull and never before push bones…"— Presentation transcript:




You are watching: Muscles are only able to pull they never push

1 Muscle Info… General Info: -Muscles always pull and also never press bones…***Meaning during a joints motion phase muscles causing the activity can only pull the bones toward each other…they cannot push the bones towards each various other. Example: -Elbow flexion *Muscle responsible is the biceps brachii (prime mover). *Pulls insertion in the direction of beginning radial tuberosity toward the coracoid procedure Triceps Brachii (antagonist): -This muscle does not “push” the joint open up throughout muscle contraction… in this instance it does permit the action to occur…

*

2 Muscle Movements… Muscle Movements:Prime mover – Muscle with the major responsibility for a particular motion Antagonist – Muscle that opposes or reverses the action of a prime mover Synergist – Muscle that aids a prime mover in a activity ***Synergists execute a similar activity to the prime mover, however to a lesser degree ***Synergists also assist mitigate unpreferable movements… (muscles that stabilize the wrist during elbow flexion) Fixator Muscles – Stabilizes one part of the body in the time of the movement of an additional ***Specifically stabilizes the origin bone throughout movement. ***Examples would certainly be the erector spinea team of muscles that save you upideal throughout activity

*

3 Naming Muscles… 1) Direction of the Muscle Fibers:- Named in referral to an imaginary line (commonly the midline of the body) *** Example: 1) Rectus suggests “Straight” - Rectus Femoris = muscle fibers of the thigh run parallel to that imaginary line 2) Obliques suggests neither parallel nor perpendicular to the long axis of a body or limb - External Obliques = muscle fibers run at an “angle” to the midline

*

4 Naming Muscles… 2. Relative Size of the Muscle Maximus = largestMinimus = smallest Longus = longest *** Example: 1) Gluteus Maximus: - Largest of the gluteal muscles (medius / minimus) 2) Gluteus Minimus: - Largest of the gluteal muscles 3) Extensor Pollicus Longus: - Longest of the extensor muscles of the posterior reduced arm.

5 Naming Muscles… 3. Location of the MuscleNamed for the bone via the muscles are associated . *** Example: Temporalis = Overlies the tempdental bamong the skull Femoris = Overlies the femur Anterior Tibialis= Overlies the anterior portion of the tibia Sternocliedomastoid= Overlies the sternum, clavicle and mastoid procedures 4. Number of Origins Name based on the number of attachment sites (heads) that it has via bones *** Example: Biceps = 2 beginnings Triceps = 3 beginnings Quadriceps = four origins

*

6 Naming Muscles… 5. Location of the Muscle’s Origin and InsertionNamed for their attachment sites to bones. *** Example: Sternocleidomastoid  Origin on sternum (Sterno—) and Clavicle (—cleido—)  Insertion on mastoid process of tempdental bone (—mastoid) 6. Shape of the Muscle Named for the distinctive form that some muscles have. *** Example: Deltoid: Deltoid implies “triangular” Rhomboideus Minor: Rhomboid shaped muscle “A four-sided shape wright here all sides have actually equal size, likewise opposite sides are parallel and opposite angles are equal.

(discovered deep to tapezium, which would be an additional excellent exmaple)

7 Naming Muscles… 7. Action of the MuscleNamed for actions such as flexion, extension, adduction and also abduction… *** Example: Adductor Longus= adducts the femur Extensor Digitorum Longus = Exhas a tendency the fingers (discovered on posterior forearm area) Extensor Digitorum Longus: = Extends the fingers (uncovered on posterior forearm area)
