Example text

Because this is a coupled, continuous motion, it cannot be about a fixed axis. This type of motion is said to be about an instantaneous axis of rotation. This axis defines multiple motions, rotary and translatory, that occur simultaneously in the same plane. The abduction motion would require continuous determinations of its instantaneous axis as it moved. This would give a true pathway of the joint motion. This motion is still typically only in one plane. In full extension the femur rolls, slides, and spins.

This creates a torque or moment of force. The torque around any point equals the product of the amount of force and its perpendicular distance from the direction of force to the axis of rotation (moment arm). If one were to hold a 5-pound weight in the palm, with the elbow flexed at a 90-degree angle, and if the distance from the elbow joint to the weight were 1 foot, then 5 foot-pounds of flexor muscle effort would be needed to maintain this position. If the elbow were flexed at a 45-degree angle, the force, the 5-pound weight, would stay the same but the moment arm would be reduced.

In the normally functioning joint, there are two barriers to motion (Fig. 4 - 1 ) : 1. The physiologic barrier is that point to which the patient may actively move any given joint; it represents a functional limit within the anatomic range of motion. Some further passive motion is still possible past this point toward the anatomic barrier (Fig. 4-2A). 2. The anatomic barrier is that point to which the joint may be passively moved beyond the physiologic barrier (Fig. 4-2B). Restriction at this point occurs because of bone, ligament, or tendons.
