Name 3 Functions of the Skeleton
Support, Movement, Protection, Production of Blood Cells
1 of 17
How do Muscles Cause Movement?
Muscles are attached to bones, they contract to move the bone.
2 of 17
What is Meant by Antagonistic Pairs & How do they Work?
Muscles that work against each other. One muscle bends the joint (flexing) and the other muscle straightens the joint (extending). E.G. Biceps (flexing) Triceps (extending)
3 of 17
Why is it Important that Bone is Living Tissue?
It allows us to grow, to heal broken bones and for bones to be modified in shape.
4 of 17
Why do Skeletons have Joints?
To allow easy movement.
5 of 17
What is the Function of a Tendon? & Why is it Important that it is Inelastic
It attaches muscle to the bone. It must be inelastic so that muscle contraction is transmitted to the bone rather than stretching the tendon.
6 of 17
What is the Function of a Ligament? & Why Must it be Elastic?
It holds bones together at a joint, it must be elastic so the bones can move.
7 of 17
What is Meant by Baseline Data?
This is data recorded at the start of an exercise regime.
8 of 17
What is Meant by the Recovery Period?
This is how long it takes for the heart rate to drop to resting rate after exercise.
9 of 17
How Would you Measure your Proportion of Body Fat?
An example is to use callipers to measure the thickness of a skin fold.
10 of 17
What are 4 Common Injuries that can Result from Exercise?
Torn Ligament, Sprain, Dislocations, Torn Tendon
11 of 17
What is Meant by a Sprain? Describe Symptoms.
It is an overstretched ligament. Redness, Swelling, Pain, Tenderness
12 of 17
What is the First Step to Treating a Sprain?
RICE - REST, ICE, COMPRESSION, ELEVATION

Why is it Important for a Physiotherapist to Assess a Joint Before Starting Treatment?
To work out what the problem is and decide the best sort of treatment.
14 of 17
A Physiotherapist may Manipulate a Joint. What is Meant by Manipulation?
A movement to free up the stiffness.
15 of 17
What is Meant by Accuracy?
How close a reading is to the real value.
16 of 17
What is Meant by Reliability?
Whether all the readings for one value are similar. Repeating something will make it more reputable.
