  1. SCI -- level where you get an UMN/spastic bowel vs LMN/flacid bowl, and the primary removal method for each
    • UMN/spastic: at T11 and above
    • intact spinal defecation reflexes, so the primary method is digital anal stim
    • LMN/flacid: T12 and below -- manual removal may be required

    medial thigh and leg
  19. C spine coupled motions
    • occiput - C2: SB and rot contralat
    • C2-C7: SB and rot ipsilat (regardless of bent/neutral)
  20. 2 tests for pronator teres syndrome
    • PT passively supinates

    • inflam disease of axillary skeleton --> spinal fusion

    • decreased bone density
    • intercostal muscle wasting
    • BP > 140/90
    • barrel chest (which is seen in emphysema, not asthma)
  23. after a meniscal repair, how long should a pt be nonweight bearing?
    3-6 weeks
  24. bruits are heard with
    • atherosclerosis
    • peripheral vascular disease
    • I think any narrowing of artery or vein?
  25. slipped capital femoral epiphysis vs legg-calve-perthes presentation
    • SCFE: 10-16 y/o, m:f 3:1, painful limited ER and abd, worse in wt bearing
    • LCP: 3-12 y/o, m:f 4:1, painful limited ER and abd, worse in wt bearing
  26. oligoarticular juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA)
    • aka pauciarticular JRA
    • some combo of knees, ankles, wrists, elbosw are affected
    • hips are usually spared
  27. AKA pt, a prosthetic knee set too far anterior to the trochanter-to-knee line will result in what at the knee
  28. AKA pt, a prosthetic knee set too far posterior to the trochanter-to-knee line will result in what at the knee
    too much stability ... difficulty flexing it
  29. gait in  Berg vs Tinetti?
    • Berg doesn't look at it
    • Tinetti examines it
  30. name a red flag for aortic aneurysm
    throbbing LBP that occurs only w activites that increase HR
  31. Lhermitte's sign
    sign of what
    • flexion of neck --> electric shock-like pain running down spine and into LEs
    • posterior column damage in the spinal cord
    • seen in MS
  32. paresthesia vs dysesthesia
    • para: abnormal sensations like numbness, prickling, tingling
    • dys: abnormal and unpleasant sensations like burning or pins/needles
  33. Uthoff's sign/phenomen/syndrome
    • adverse reaction to heat
    • worsening of neuro symptoms
    • seen w MS
  34. thoracic spine rule of 3
    • T1-3: SPs at level of TPs
    • T4-6: SPs half level below
    • T7-9: SPs full level below
    • T10: full
    • T11: half
    • T12: same

    when SPs are lower, PA pressures on them will just make them glide into and compress the SP bellow, so no arthrokinematic glide will occur
  35. Oppenheim's test
    • run a fingernail along the tibial crest
    • pos: DF of halux (like Babinski)
    • indicates damage to pyramidal tract
    • (Babs is for spinal cord, brain, UMNL)
  36. extrapyramidal system -- 4 functions
    • (1) selective activation of movements and supression of others
    • (2) Initiation of movements
    • (3) setting rate and force of movements
    • (4) coordinating movements.
    • Damage to the extrapyramidal system, but especially damage to the basal ganglia, will result in movement disorders known as dyskinesias.
  37. stereognosis
    ability to recognize objects placed in the hand
  38. involvement of CN IX --> what
    • slight dysphagia
    • loss of tast in post 1/3 of tongue
    • loss of gag reflex
  39. deglutition
    act or process of swallowing
  40. involvement of CN XI --> what
    • minor problems in swallowing/deglutition and phonation
    • weakness in ipsilat trap and SCM
  41. facial repercussions of impaired CNX
    • dysphagia,
    • hoarseness
    • paralysis of soft palate
  42. hematocrit norms (these are right, the other card is wrong)
    • women: 37-48%
    • men: 45-52%
  43. impetigo
    staphlococcal infection w small macules (unraised spots) or vesicles (small blisters)

    • contagious skin infection, produces blisters
    • usually in preschoolers, also seen in older athletes in contact sports
  44. forward trunk lean in gait compensates for what weakness
  45. backward trunk lean in gait compensates for what weakness
  46. excessive hip flexion in gait can be a compensation for what?
    foot drop
  47. hyaluronidase is used via iontophoresis for what?
    edema reduction
  48. when to use wide spacing of biofeedback electrodes
    • looking for a motion (shoulder elev) rather than activation of one specific muscle (use narrow spacing for a specific muscle, even if it's a big one like the quads)
    • a muscle that has decreased ability to recruit MUs or has a decreased number and size of MUs, use wide spacing and high sensitivity
  49. L face and R body loss of pain and temp -- lesion is where?
    • L posterolateral medulla
    • sensory tracks (fascic cuneatus/gracilis) cross in medulla, so a lesion sup would have entirely contralat symptoms
  50. female athlete triad
    • osteopenia
    • amenorrhea
    • disordered eating habits
    • common in females 14-20 y/o
  51. isometric vs dymanic exercise --- changes in HR and arterial BP
    isometric exercise raise them more bc dynamic exercises facil circulation while static exercise hinders blood flow
