2 The Skeletal Muscles There are about 650 muscles in the human body The Skeletal Muscles There are about 650 muscles in the human body. They enable us to move, maintain posture and generate heat. In this section we will only study a sample of the major muscles.There are about 650 muscles in the human body. They enable us to move, maintain posture and generate heat. In this unit will only study a sample of the major muscles.
3 Types of Musculo-Skeletal Movement FlexionYou will need to know the action or movement performed for each of the muscles we study. The first type of movement is called flexion. Note the lower leg is being flexed in this diagram. During flexion the angle of joint is decreased. As the knee is flexed, the angle between the lower leg and the thigh is decreased. Flexion of the upper arm is also illustrated in this diagram. Here the angle between the arm and the frontal plane is decreased.
4 ExtensionExtension is the opposite of flexion. In extension the angle of a joint is increased. Extension of the lower leg causes an increased angle between the lower leg and the thigh.
5 HyperextensionFlexion and extension also apply to the neck. When a joint is extended past the anatomical position the movement is called hyperextension.
6 Abduction, Adduction & Circumduction Abduction refers to moving away from the median plane of the body. Adduction is the opposite movement to abduction. It is moving toward the medial plane. Circumduction refers to inscribing a circle while moving a limb.
7 RotationRotation is turning a bone on its own axis. Moving the head back and forth to indicate “no” is an example of rotation. Note the difference between medial and lateral rotation. In lateral rotation the limb is rotated the lateral side of the body. Medial rotation rotates the limb toward the medial side of the body.
8 Muscle Attachments Insertion Origin Muscles attach in at least two places in the body. *The origin is the attachment that moves the least. *The insertion is the attachment that moves the most. This diagram illustrates the origin and insertion of one of the neck muscles. Note the origin is on the clavicle and sternum. The insertion is on the skull. When the muscle contracts it will shorten the distance between the origin and insertion. The head will move when this muscle contracts. Remember the insertion is the end of the muscle that moves the most. Since the head moves the attachment on the head is called the insertion. The origin is generally on a larger body part will move the least. The chest does not move when this muscle contract. The bones in the chest are therefore the origin.
9 Sternocleidomastoideus Flexes and Rotates HeadThe first muscle we will learn is the sternocleidomastoideus. It is sometime called the sternocleitomastoid. It is the same neck muscle shown on the previous slide. * This muscle has two origins. The first origin is on the sternum manubrium. The second origin is on the clavicle. *The insertion is on the mastoid process of the skull. *Contraction of both sternocleidomastoideus muscles will flex the head. If just on of the muscles contracts, the head will rotate.
10 Masseter Elevate Mandible The masseter is one of major chewing muscles. *The origin of the masseter is on the zygomatic arch. *The insertion is on the mandible. *Contraction of the masseter will elevate the jaw.
11 Elevate & Retract Mandible TemporalisElevate & Retract MandibleThe temporalis is another chewing muscle. Note how it attaches on the side of skull. *It also elevates the mandible. Also note I did not give the origin and insertion of this muscle. You will only need to know the origin and insertion of a few of the muscles in this unit.
12 Extend Head, Adduct, Elevate or Depress Scapula TrapeziusExtend Head, Adduct, Elevate or Depress ScapulaThe trapezius is a large muscle in the upper back. It attaches to the skull, shoulder and vertebrae of the back. *When this muscle contracts it will cause the head to extend. It will also move the scapula. The direction the scapula moves depends on which part of the trapezius contracts. The trapezius may adduct elevate or depress the scapula.
13 Extend, Adduct & Rotate Arm Medially Latissimus DorsiExtend, Adduct & Rotate Arm MediallyThe latissimus dorsi is a large muscle in the back. It is often referred to as a lat. *It has origins on the vertebrae, ilium ribs and scapula. *The insertion is on the humerus. When it contracts it moves the humerus. *It can extend, adduct and rotate the arm medially. This is the main muscle used in movement such as pounding a nail with a hammer.
14 Abduct, Flex & Extend Arm DeltoidAbduct, Flex & Extend ArmThe deltoid covers the shoulder and has the shape of a delta. *It has origins on the scapula and clavicle. *The deltoid inserts on the deltoid tuberosity of the humerus. *Contraction of the deltoid will adduct the arm. If only the anterior fibers of the muscle contract it will flex the arm. Contraction of the posterior fibers will extend the arm.
15 Flexes, adducts & rotates arm medially Pectoralis MajorFlexes, adducts & rotates arm mediallyThe pectoralis major is a large muscle in the pectoral region of the body. *It has origins on the clavicle and sternum. *The insertion is on the greater tubercle of the humerus. *Contraction of the pectoralis major will flex the arm. It will also adduct and rotate the arm medially. The pectoralis major is used in movements such a climbing, throwing and doing pushups.
16 Biceps Brachii Flexes Elbow Joint The biceps brachii is located on the anterior side of the upper arm. It is often just called the biceps. There is a biceps femoris in the leg we will study shortly. *The biceps has two origins. One origin is on the corocoid process and the other on the Glenoid cavity of the scapula. The “bi” in biceps refers to the two origins. *It inserts on the radial tuberosity. *Contraction of the biceps will cause flexing at the elbow joint.
17 Triceps Brachii Extend Elbow Joint The triceps is on the back of the upper arm. *It has three origins. Two origins are on the back of the humerus and one on the scapula. *The triceps inserts on the olecranon. *Movement of the triceps will extend the elbow joint.
18 Rectus Abdominus Flexes Abdomen Rectus abdominus is a long muscle in the abdomen. *The muscle originates on the pubis. *It inserts on the xiphoid process of the sternum and also on cartilage of the ribs. *When rectus abdominus contracts it will flex the abdomen.
19 External Oblique Compress Abdomen Another muscle in the abdomen is the external oblique. It has muscle fibers that run in an oblique direction across the abdomen. *Contraction of the external oblique will compress the abdomen.
20 External Intercostals Elevate ribsThere are two groups of muscles that run between the ribs. The first are the external intercostals. *They will elevate the ribs.
21 Internal Intercostals Depress ribsThe internal intercostals are also located between the ribs. *They will depress the ribs.
22 Diaphragm Inspiration This is an inferior view of the diaphragm. This muscle separates the abdominal cavity from the thoracic cavity. *When it contracts it will cause inspiration.
23 Forearm Muscles Flexor carpi—Flexes wrist Extensor carpi—Extends wrist Flexor digitorum—Flexes fingersExtensor digitorum—Extends fingersPronator—PronatesSupinator—SupinatesThere are several muscles in the forearm that have important movements. *The flexor carpi are used to flex the wrist. *Extensor carpi extend the wrist. *Flexor digitorum flexes the fingers. *Extensor digitorum extends the fingers. *The pronator pronates. *A supinator muscle will supinate.
24 Extends & Rotates Thigh Laterally Gluteus MaximusExtends & Rotates Thigh LaterallyThe large muscle on the posterior side of the body at the top of each leg is the gluteus maximus. *The gluteus maximus originates on the ilium, sacrum and coccyx. *It inserts on the gluteal tuberosity of the femur. *This muscle will extend and rotate the thigh laterally.
25 Flexes Thigh, Extends Lower Leg Rectus FemorisFlexes Thigh, Extends Lower LegRectus femoris is located on the anterior side of the thigh. *It originates on the ilium. *The insertion is on the patella and the tibial tuberosity. *When rectus femoris contracts it will flex the thigh and extend the lower leg.
26 Adducts and Flexes Thigh GracilisAdducts and Flexes ThighThe gracilis is on the medial side of the thigh. *It adducts and flexes the thigh.
27 Flexes Thigh, & Rotates Thigh Laterally SartoriusFlexes Thigh, & Rotates Thigh LaterallySartorius is a long, strap like muscle. *It originates on the anterior superior iliac spine of the ilium. *The insertion is on the medial side of the tibia. * Contraction of the sartorius flexes the thigh and rotates the thigh laterally. This is the muscle used when crossing the legs to sit on the floor.
28 Extends Thigh & Flexes Lower Leg Biceps FemorisExtends Thigh & Flexes Lower LegBiceps femoris is one of the hamstring muscles. *The origin is on the ischial tuberosity. *Biceps femoris inserts on the tibia and fibula. This muscle extends the thigh and flexes the lower leg.
29 Plantar Flexes Foot & Flex Lower Leg GastrocnemiusPlantar Flexes Foot & Flex Lower LegGastrocnemius is commonly called the calf muscle. *It originates on the distal end of the femur. *The insertion is on the calcaneus bone of the foot. *It will cause plantar flexion of the foot and also flex the lower leg.
30 Dorsiflexes and Inverts Foot Tibialis AnteriorDorsiflexes and Inverts FootTibialis anterior is located on the anterior side of the tibia. *It will dorsiflex and invert the foot.
