2. Primary radiation refers to the beam of photons entering the tube before interaction with the patients body.
True
False

3. Electrical stimulation can be an effective agent in pain management.
True
False

4. Long-term exercises causes collegen fibrils to thin decreasing their tensile strength.
True
False

5. A contraindicated movement of a transtrochanteric surgical approach would include hip flexion past 80 degrees.
True
False

6. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is more important functionally than the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) because it checks the backward movement of the tibia on the femur.
True
False

7. In the surgical approach for a total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) the surgeon should detach the subscapularis from its insertion point (lesser tubercle).
True
False

8. A surgeon will usually replace the radial head in a total elbow arthroplasty.
True
False

9. With ischiogluteal bursitis, pain is usually acute and very intense with lumbar extension.
True
False

10. Ely's test involves the femoral nerve via stretching the nerve.
True
False

11. The shoulder, similar to the hip, functions to position the hand, provides stability for hand use,lifts, pushes, elevates the body, assists with forced inspiration and expiration, and even weight bearing as in crutch-walking.
True
False

12. The term "complex" is quite appropriate for the shoulder, which is comprised of three joints and one primary articulation, all moved by twenty-five muscles, permitting the greatest mobility of any joint in the human body.
True
False

13. The elbow is a relatively stable joint with three degrees of freedom: flexion-extension at the ulno-humeral joint, and pronation-supination at the proximal radio-ulnar articulation of the forearm.
True
False

14. In regards to the ligaments of the elbow, instablitliy of the elbow is not common, however, when it is present, it occurs primarily with the valgus stress.
True
False

15. When dislocations occur, they are almost always posterior and may be due to direct trauma or due to "structural fatigue" of the ligaments from oversue.
True
False

16. With tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) irritation of the common origin of the wrist extensors are primarily the extensor carpi radialis brevis, due to actions that are stressful to the wrist flexion and repetivitive nature.
True
False

17. In ulnar nerve entrapment (in the elbow region) the most common site of entrapment is at the cubital tunnel.
True
False

18. Thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis occur with accompanying stretch weakness to the back extensors and shortening to the rectus abdominals.
True
False

19. The rotator cuss usually has low tone and lacks the functional movement needed to stabilize the humeral head in the glenoid fossa.
True
False

20. Gleno-humeral extension occurs from tightness of the latissimus dorsi so that the distal end of the humerus falls behing the GH joint with pressure anteriorly on the head of the humerus.
True
False
