The flashcards below were created by user jillmwashington on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. joint movement activated by the person
    active exercise
  2. strong, flexible,inelastic fibrous bands and flattened sheets of connective tissue that attach muscle to bones
    tendons
  3. decreased muscle size
    atrophy
  4. involves muscle contractions with resistance (ex. rehabilitative exercised for knee and elbow injuries and lifting weights)
    isokinetic exercises
  5. hard nonvascular connective tissue found in the joints as well as in the nose ear thorax trachea and larynx
    cartilage
  6. practice of designing equipment and work tasks to conform to the capability of the worker in relation to patient care
    patient care ergonomics
  7. condition that results in muscle wasting and decrease physical energy for movement and work such as anorexia nervosa and certain cancers
    negative nitrogen balance
  8. active exertion of muscles involving the contraction and relaxation of muscle groups
    exercise
  9. decreased muscle tone,synonym for hypotonicity
    flaccidity
  10. complication resulting from extended plantar felxion
    footdrop
  11. involves muscle contraction without shortening (ex. there is no movement or only a minimum shortening of muscle fibers)contractions of quadriceps and gluteal muscles
    isometric exercise
  12. condition characterized by loss of calcium from bone tissue
    osteoporosis
  13. tough fibrous bands of connective tissue that bind joints together and connect bones and cartilage
    ligaments
  14. nerve cells that conduct impulses from one part of the body to another
    neurons
  15. the correction or prevention of disorders of body structures used in locomotion
    orthopedics
  16. complete extent of movement of which a joint is normally capable of
    range of motion
  17. impaired muscle strength or weakness
    paresis
  18. increased tone the interferes with movement, also caused by neurologic impairment
    spasticity
  19. normal, partially steady state of muscle contraction
    tonus
