Clues

  • A degenerative joint disease caused by a loss of articular cartilage in a joint. (14)
  • A thin layer of glassy smooth cartilage that is spongy and covers the end of bones at a joint. (9, 9)
  • Ability of your trunk to support the forces of your arms and legs during physical activity. (4, 9)
  • An upright standing position facing forwards. (10, 8)
  • Tension is produced in the muscle but there is no change in muscle length. It is a static contraction because the joint will stay in the same position. (9, 11)
  • Tension is produced in the muscle while there is a change in muscle length. It is a dynamic contraction because the joint will move. (8, 11)
  • The bones of the upper and lower limbs and their girdles that join to the axial skeleton. (12, 8)
  • This attaches to and moves the skeleton. (8, 6)
  • This forms the long axis of the body and includes the bones of the skill, spine and rib cage. (5, 8)
  • Weakening of bones caused by a reduction in bone density making the prone to fracture. (12)
