    A contusion (bruise) results from a blow & can occur in any area of the body, blood vessels below the skin become damaged, & accumulation in deeper tissues (hematoma) may develop.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A contusion, also known as a bruise, is caused by a blow to the body. This can happen in any area of the body. When a blow occurs, the blood vessels below the skin become damaged, leading to the accumulation of blood in the deeper tissues, which is known as a hematoma. Therefore, the statement that a contusion results from a blow and can occur in any area of the body, with blood vessels below the skin becoming damaged and the development of a hematoma in deeper tissues, is true.

    • D.

      Control swelling & inflammation

    • E.

      Use pain, muscle length & strength to guide aggressiveness of tx.

    • F.

      Restore muscle performance & progress to functional activities (may initiate w/ isometric exercises)

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Simple= resolve in a timely manner
    B. Treat, but avoid further damage
    C. Restore ROM
    D. Control swelling & inflammation
    E. Use pain, muscle length & strength to guide aggressiveness of tx.
    F. Restore muscle performance & progress to functional activities (may initiate w/ isometric exercises)
    Explanation
    The correct answer includes all the appropriate steps for treating contusions. Contusions usually resolve on their own in a timely manner, so the first step is to allow the body to heal naturally. However, treatment is still necessary to avoid further damage and promote healing. Restoring range of motion (ROM) is important to prevent stiffness and maintain joint function. Controlling swelling and inflammation is crucial to reduce pain and promote healing. Pain, muscle length, and strength should be used as guides to determine the aggressiveness of treatment. Finally, restoring muscle performance and gradually progressing to functional activities, such as isometric exercises, helps the individual regain full functionality.

    Articular cartilage has a great healing response.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Articular cartilage does not have a great healing response. Unlike other tissues in the body, articular cartilage has a limited ability to repair itself. It lacks blood vessels and nerves, which makes it difficult for the body to send healing cells and nutrients to the damaged area. As a result, injuries to articular cartilage often lead to pain, limited mobility, and can progress into more severe conditions such as osteoarthritis. Therefore, the statement that articular cartilage has a great healing response is false.

    Poor flexibility, poor warm-up exercise, insufficient strength or endurance & poor coordination are contributing factors to a strain.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Poor flexibility, poor warm-up exercise, insufficient strength or endurance, and poor coordination are all factors that can contribute to a strain. When the muscles and tendons are not properly prepared or conditioned, they are more susceptible to injury. Poor flexibility can lead to increased stress on the muscles and tendons, making them more likely to strain. Similarly, a lack of strength or endurance can cause the muscles to fatigue more easily, increasing the risk of strain. Additionally, poor coordination can result in improper movement patterns, which can put extra strain on certain muscles and lead to injury. Therefore, all of these factors can contribute to a strain, making the statement true.

    A sprain is an injury of

    • A.

      Bones

    • B.

      Ligaments

    • C.

      Tendons

    • D.

      Muscles

    Correct Answer
    B. Ligaments
    Explanation
    A sprain is an injury that occurs to the ligaments, which are strong bands of tissue that connect bones to each other and provide stability to joints. When a joint is forced beyond its normal range of motion, the ligaments can stretch or tear, resulting in a sprain. This can happen during activities such as sports or accidents that cause sudden twisting or bending of a joint. Sprains commonly occur in the ankles, wrists, and knees. It is important to rest, ice, compress, and elevate the injured area to reduce pain and swelling, and seek medical attention if the sprain is severe or does not improve.

    Rupture of which of these structures is a commonly missed soft-tissue injury that involves knee pain or swelling?

    • A.

      Medial collateral ligament

    • B.

      Posterior cruciate ligament

    • C.

      Patellar tendon

    • D.

      Lateral collateral ligament

    Correct Answer
    C. Patellar tendon
    Explanation
    The patellar tendon is a commonly missed soft-tissue injury that can cause knee pain or swelling. The patellar tendon connects the kneecap (patella) to the shinbone (tibia) and is responsible for straightening the leg. Rupture of the patellar tendon can occur due to sudden forceful movements or chronic overuse. This injury is often missed because the symptoms can be similar to other knee injuries, such as ligament tears. It is important to accurately diagnose and treat a patellar tendon rupture to prevent long-term complications and restore normal knee function.
