Ligamentous testing

What does the term 'specificity' refer to in the context of testing?

The percentage of people who test negative for a specific disease among a group of people who do not have that disease

In neurologic testing, what does the term 'dermatome' refer to?

Assessing sensation in an area of skin supplied by a single nerve root

What does the term 'myotome' refer to in neurologic testing?

Assessing muscle contraction primarily innervated by a single nerve root

In the context of activity-specific functional testing, what should movements assess?

Strength, agility, flexibility, joint stability, endurance, coordination, balance, and sport-specific skill performance

What does 'focal injury' typically refer to?

Injury to specific area with high velocity

Which factor contributes to injuries as per the given text?

What should be ensured by the sports medicine team with regard to protective equipment (PPE)?

Proper fitting of PPE

What does 'S.A.F.E.' stand for in the context of sport safety?

Supervision, Activity selection & instruction, Facility inspection, Equipment inspection

What are SOAP notes used for?

To record patient's complaints about pain.

In sport safety, what does 'MOI' stand for?

Mode Of Injury

What should be done if a patient complains about pain according to the provided text?

Ask how the pain happened and its description/demonstration.

Study Notes

  • Hypomobility and hypermobility are conditions that can affect an individual's ability to move and perform physical activities
  • Hypomobility is characterized by a lower range of motion and a higher risk of injury, especially sprains
  • Strength and power are important factors in mobility, assessed through various tests such as manual muscle testing, grip strength, and exercise machines
  • Power is the ability to produce force in a given time and is assessed through timed tests like throwing a medicine ball or a vertical jump
  • Agility is the ability to change directions rapidly and is assessed through functional tests like single- or two-legged hops for distance and stair climbing
  • Balance is the body's coordinated neuromuscular response to maintain a defined position of equilibrium and is assessed through tests like the single-leg stance
  • Reaction time is the ability to respond to a stimulus and is assessed through various tests like the tap test
  • Cardiovascular endurance is the ability to sustain submaximal exercise over an extended period and is assessed through tests like the 1.5-mile run
  • Prior to participation in sports or physical activities, a clearance for participation is required, which includes an assessment of the individual's condition and any potential risks or limitations
  • A primary and secondary survey is conducted during on-field assessments for injuries, which includes documenting subjective and objective information in SOAP notes
  • Injury assessment involves gathering a history of the injury, performing observations and inspections, and conducting palpation and functional tests
  • Motor function is assessed through tests like goniometry, which measures the range of motion, and assesses muscle strength, movement coordination, and injury to the nervous system
  • Ligamentous and capsular testing assesses joint function and integrity of joint structures through assessing joint laxity and stability.

This quiz covers the physical fitness profile exam, including cardiovascular, pulmonary, and musculoskeletal examinations. It includes auscultation of heart and breath sounds, checking for cardiac abnormalities, and evaluating history of loss of consciousness, syncope, dizziness, and more. Additionally, the musculoskeletal exam covers history of previous injuries and their details.
