the differences between the axial skeleton and appendicular skeleton
- axial skeletons: bones of the spine, thorax, and skull
- appendicular skeletons: bones of the extremities

Difference between tendons and ligaments

What is the purpose of cartilage?
functions to join structures, absorb shock, and permit smooth bone movement
what is the purpose of muscles ?
muscles allow the body to accelerate, decelerate, stop movement, and maintain normal postural alignment and produce heat
Different types of joints in the body
Also known as synovial joints. They have fantastic mobility and consist of a joint capsule, synovial membrane, hyaline cartilage. Divided into several types including hinge joints (elbow and knee) and multiracial joints (hip and shoulder).
- have cartilage attaching two bones together
- also known as cartilaginous joints.

bone and muscle diagrams
- page 34 and 36
soft tissue injuries are often called what?
wounds, sprains, and strains
what is the difference between sprains and strains ?
sprains are injuries to ligaments and a strain is an injury to a muscle or tendon
Sprain/ strain categories
- 1st degree: tissue is over - stretched and there is no loss of motion
- 2nd degree: tissue is partially torn, some swelling and loss of motion
- 3rd degree: completely or nearly ruptured tissue and cannot function well at all
3 stages of healing ( soft - tissue ) :
-Stage 1: Acute Inflammatory: Cells within the area die from being ripped apart and cut off from their food and oxygen supply. An increase in blood flow brings cells and chemical to the area to begin healing. Lasts about 2 day from the date of initial injury
- Stage 2: Repair: injured area has been flooded with blood, cells and chemicals to rebuild the area.
Fibroblasts are fiber building cells and start laying down fibers over the injured area, this forms a scar.
Takes 6 weeks to up to 3 months depending on the extent of the injury
- Stage 3: Remodeling: Takes up to a year to accomplish. Building tissue strength in the tendons, ligaments, and muscles to be able to withstand the stress applied to the body during activity.
stages of bone fracture healing
- stage 1: acute
- stage 2: repair
- stage 3: remodeling
Stage 1 : acute
-Bleeding occurs when a bone is broken
-Osteoclasts begin to eat the debris or
reabsorb it into the body
-Osteoblasts begin to add new layers to the
outside of the bone.
-This process lasts for about 4 days
stage 2: repair
-Osteoclasts and osteoblasts continue to regenerate the
-Fibrous callus forms and acts as a bony splint
-This callus extends internally and externally to hold the bone ends together
-Transforms into a sleeve of hard callus
-Callus transformation into bone starts around the 3week mark after injury.
-6 weeks in a cast or splint and a fracture has healed enough to allow an athlete to return to practice and competition.
Stage 3: remodeling
Takes several years to complete.
Callus is reabsorbed and replaced with a fibrous cord of bone that forms around the fracture site.
If the bone never heals this is known as a nonunion
If a nonunion fracture occurs in a weight bearing bone the athlete will not be able to walk.
