Explanation of Terms

1. The intervertebral discs make up one fourth of the spinal column's length. There are no discs between the Atlas (C1), Axis (C2), and Coccyx. Discs are not vascular and therefore depend on the end plates to diffuse needed nutrients. The cartilaginous layers of the end plates anchor the discs in place. Intervertebral discs are composed of an annulus fibrosus and a nucleus pulposus. A sudden increase in the compression load on the vertebral column causes the semifluid nucleus pulposus to become flattened. The outward thrust of the nucleus is accommodated by the resilience of the surrounding annulus fibrosus and it ruptures, allowing the nucleus pulposus to herniate and protrude into the vertebral canal, where it may press on the spinal nerve roots, the spinal nerve, or even the spinal cord.

2. The paired bands of yellow elastic tissue that connect adjoining laminae of the vertebrae. With the laminae, it forms the posterior wall of the spinal canal and helps hold the body erect.

3. Two crescentic fibrocartilaginous plates which are interposed between the femoral and tibial condyles and triangular in cross-section. Action: They deepen the articular surfaces of the tibia for the reception of the femoral condyles.

4. Location: arises in front of the intercondylar eminence of the tibia, extends upward, backward and laterally to attach to the posterior part of the medial side of the lateral condyle of the femur. Action: it prevents backward displacement of the femur on the tibia and hyper extention of the knee joint. When the knee joint is flexed to a right angle, the tibia cannot be pulled forward.

5. Location: arises from behind the intercondylar eminence and passes upward and forward on the medial side of the anterior cruciate ligament to attach to the anterior part of the lateral surface of the medial condyle of the femur. Action: prevents forward displacement of the femur or backward displacement of the tibia.

Answer the Following Questions

1. Curves in the sagittal plane:

In the adult in the standing position, the vertebral column exhibits in the sagittal plane the following regional curves: cervical, posterior concavity; thoracic, posterior convexity; lumbar, posterior concavity; and sacral, posterior convexity.

Curves in the coronal plane:

In late childhood, it is common to find the development of minor lateral curves in the thoracic region of the vertebral column. This is normal and is usually caused by the predominant use of one of the upper limbs.

The primary curves: thoracic and sacral curves

The secondary curves: cervical and lumbar curves

2. (1) Fibrous joints. In fibrous joints, the articulating bones are held together by fibrous connective tissue. These joints lack joint cavities.

(2) Cartilaginous joints. In cartilaginous joints, the articulating bones are held together by cartilage. These joints also lack joint cavities.

(3) Synovial joints. In synovial joints, the articulating bones are capped with cartilage, and ligaments frequently help support them. These joints are distinguished by fluid-filled joint cavities.

3. A synovial joint's range of motion is determined by three factors:

(1) the structure of the hones involved in the articulation (for example, the olecranon of the ulna limits hyperextension of the elbow joint);

(2) the strength of the joint capsule and the strength and tautness of the associated ligaments and tendons;

(3) the size, arrangement, and action of the muscles that span the joint. Range of motion at synovial joints is characterized by tremendous individual variation, most of which is related to body conditioning. Excessive obesity may also limit the range of movement at synovial joints. Although some people can perform remarkable contortions and are said to be "double-jointed," they have no extra joints that help them do this. Rather, through conditioning, they are able to stretch the ligaments that normally inhibit movement.

4. (1) Hinge. Hinge joints are monaxial--like the hinge of a door, they permit movement in only one plane. In this type of articulation, the surface of one bone is always concave, and the other convex. Hinge joints are the most common type of synovial joints. Examples include the joints between the phalanges.

(2) Pivot. The movement at a pivot joint is limited to rotation about a central axis. In this type of articulation, the articular surface on one bone is conical or rounded and fits into a depression on another bone. Examples are the proximal articulation of the radius and ulna for rotation of the forearm, as in turning a doorknob.

(3) Condyloid (ellipsoid) .A condyloid articulation is structured so that an oval, convex articular surface of one bone fits into a concave depression on another bone. This permits angular movement in two directions, as in up-and-down and side-to-side motions. Condyloid joints are therefore said to be biaxial joints. The radiocarpal join of the wrist and the metacarpophalangeal joints are examples.

(4) Saddle. Each articular process of a saddle joint has a concave surface in one direction and a convex surface in another. This articulation is a modified condyloid joint that allows a wide range of movement. There are two places in the body where a saddle joint occurs. A typical example is articulation of the trapezium of the carpus with the first metacarpal bone. This carpometacarpal joint is the one responsible for the opposable thumb--a hallmark of primate anatomy.
