2 The Primary Elbow Extensors & Flexors Elbow flexorsBiceps brachiiBrachialisBrachioradialisWeak assistance from pronator teresElbow extensorTriceps brachiiAnconeus provides assistance
3 What type of joint is the elbow? The elbow is a Radioulnar jointIt is a pivot-type jointThe radial head rotates around the proximalDistal radius rotates around distal ulnaThe angular ligament maintains radial head in its joints
4 What is the degree of freedom for the elbow joint? In supination it is 80 – 90 degree’s from neutralIn pronation its 70 – 90 degrees from neutral
5 Articulation of which bones make the elbow joint? The elbow is made up of the humerus, ulna, & radius
6 Draw diagram representing all the movement of elbow joint and name the plane and axis of each movement.All these movements take place in the saggital and frontal plane
7 In what plane does supination and pronation occur? Supination & pronation take place in the sagittal and coronal plane
8 What is tennis elbow?Tennis elbow is a common problem where the lateral epicondyle becomes painful and tender. Usually involving the extensor digitorum muscle near its origin on lateral epicondyle. It is also known as lateral epicondylitis and is associated with gripping & lifting activities
9 The ligaments of the elbow joint Ulnar collateral ligamentRadial collateral ligamentAnnular ligament
10 Normal ranges: Elbow flexion (zero to 150 degrees) Elbow Extension (150 degrees to zero)Supination (zero to 80 or 90 degrees)Pronation (zero to 80 or 90 degrees)
11 The ligament injured in hyperextension of the elbow joint is: The ulnar collateral ligament
12 Elbow flexion is an example of Third class lever because the biceps brachii applies force at the insertion of the radial tuberosity, the resistance is the center of gravity and the elbow as the axis.
13 The Biceps brachialis muscle is The prime mover for flexion of the Elbow jointThe biceps brachialis pulls at the insertion of the radial tuberosity as shown in the previous slide.
