The lumbar area of the back is commonly injured due to poor lifting techniques or excessive strain. The neck is susceptible to injuries from whiplash or sudden movements. The thoracic area can be injured during activities that involve twisting or bending. Therefore, these three areas are more prone to injuries compared to the arm.

    The sports that create most problems are contact sports such as:-  (Select Two)

    • A.

      Rugby

    • B.

      Butterfly stroke in swimming

    • C.

      Jogging

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Rugby
    B. Butterfly stroke in swimming
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Rugby and Butterfly stroke in swimming. Rugby is a contact sport that involves physical tackles and collisions, which can lead to injuries and problems such as concussions. Similarly, the butterfly stroke in swimming requires a lot of upper body strength and can put strain on the shoulders and back, leading to potential problems or injuries. Jogging, on the other hand, is a low-impact exercise that is generally considered safe and does not create as many problems compared to contact sports.

    The back is a complicated structure consisting of vertebrae or bones of the spine, each vertebrae having two synovial joints and a series of______ that restrict the movement at each vertebrae.

    • A.

      Ligaments

    • B.

      Tendons

    Correct Answer
    A. Ligaments
    Explanation
    The back is made up of vertebrae or bones of the spine, and each vertebra has two synovial joints. These joints, along with a series of ligaments, help to restrict the movement at each vertebra. Ligaments are strong bands of connective tissue that connect bones to other bones and provide stability to the joints. In the context of the back, ligaments play a crucial role in supporting and limiting the movement of the vertebrae, ensuring the overall stability and integrity of the spine. Tendons, on the other hand, connect muscles to bones and are not directly involved in restricting movement at the vertebrae.

    Correct Answer
    A. Buttock

    D. Pain that does not improve when resting.
    E. Loss of normal function ( foot drop or dragging etc.)
    Explanation
    The given answer options include symptoms that suggest a condition other than a muscular problem. Loss of sensation in the legs, feet, arms, or hands can indicate nerve damage or compression. Numbness or tingling in these areas can also be a sign of nerve involvement. Pain that does not improve when resting may indicate an underlying issue such as inflammation or joint involvement. Loss of normal function, such as foot drop or dragging, can indicate nerve or muscle dysfunction. Incorrect walking and sitting habits may contribute to muscular problems, but they are not specific symptoms.
