• Accurately describe at least two examples of the anatomic and bow mechanical relationships of the elbows that relate to normal function.
• Describe without queues the pathomechanics of at least two selected elbow injuries.
• Independently outline an evidenced based examination with at least three intervention techniques for selected elbow conditions.
There are three primary articulations: the humeral ulnar, humeral radial, and the proximal radial ulnar joint.
Another thing to consider when reviewing anatomy is the carrying angle. There is a normal valgus angulation. In men, that normal angulation ranges between 11 and 14 degrees, and in women, 13 to 16 degrees. The female pelvis is a bit wider which may be a component on why there is a difference in gender. Again, keep in mind the normal position of the elbow is going to have a bit of a valgus angulation.
