Lower limb multiple choice questions-2 (21 to 40 Questions and Answers)

👉21 D) The deep posterior, superficial posterior, lateral, and anterior compartment makes up the four compartments of the lower leg.
👉22 A) The anterior nerve roots contain mostly motor nerves, whereas posterior nerve roots are mainly sensory. The dorsal root ganglion contains cell bodies of sensory nerves.
👉23 A) All of the muscles are digit 2 to 5 extensors, except the EPL, which is a thumb extensor.
👉24 A) All of the answer choices except the motor nerve cell body are components of the neuromuscular junction. The motor nerve cell body gives rise to motor nerve axons.
👉25 A) The axillary nerve innervates the teres minor and the deltoid muscles.
👉26 C) The carpal tunnel contains the four tendons of FDS, four tendons of FDP, FPL tendon, and median nerve. The roof of the carpal tunnel is formed by the transverse carpal ligament; the floor is formed by the central carpal bones. The medial wall is formed by the hamate and the pisiform bones

👉27 C) The lateral wall is formed by the trapezius and scaphoid bones. The infraspinatus muscle’s proximal attachment is in the infraspinous fossa, while its distal attachment is at the greater tuberosity of the humerus. The primary action of the infraspinatus muscle is to externally rotate the arm as well as to provide stability to the rotator cuff.

👉28 C) The adductor magnus is a hip extensor. All of the other muscles are hip flexors.

👉29 B) The pes anserine bursa is a medial bursa. There are four anterior bursae: prepatellar, suprapatellar, deep infrapatellar, and superficial (subcutaneous infrapatellar)

👉30 B) The medial malleolus is the prominence on the inner side of the ankle, formed by the lower end of the tibia.

👉31 B) Striking the tendon just below the patella stretches the muscle spindle in the quadriceps femoris muscle. This produces a monosynaptic reflex arc back to the spinal cord and synapses at the level of L4 in the spinal cord. From there, an alphamotor neuron conducts an efferent impulse back to the quadriceps femoris muscle, triggering contraction resulting in knee extension.

👉32 D) The palmaris longus muscle is primarily a wrist fl exor. Although it is absent in about 14% of the population, its absence does not have any known effects on grip strength. All the other choices are finger flexors, including the flexor digitorum profundus (not listed).

👉33 B) The dorsal root ganglion contains cell bodies of the afferent spinal nerves responsible for relaying sensory information. A motor unit contains the following components from proximal to distal: anterior horn cell, motor nerve axons, peripheral nerve, the neuromuscular junction, muscle fibers.

👉34 B) The suprascapular nerve innervates the supraspinatus and infraspinatus muscles.

👉35 A) There are six compartments in the dorsum of the hand. The contents of each compartment are
as follows: I–extensor pollicis brevis, abductor pollicis longus; II–extensor carpi radialis brevis, extensor carpi radialis longus; III–extensor pollicis longus; IV–extensor digitorum; V–extensor digitiminimi; and VI–extensor carpiulnaris.

👉36 C) The main flexor of the forearm is the brachialis muscle. The anconeus is a relatively insignificant muscle that helps the triceps extend the forearm and it also resists ulnar abduction during pronation. The biceps brachii muscle is the major supinator of the forearm, while the brachioradialis is a forearm flexor (but not the main flexor).

👉37 C) The long head of the biceps femoris is a hip adductor. The gluteus medius and minimus muscles abduct the hip. The piriformis muscle abducts, externally rotates, and extends the hip.

👉38 B) Baker’s cyst is a distended bursa located between the medial head of the gastrocnemius and capsule extending under the semimembranosus. There is a second posterior bursa located between the lateral head of the gastrocnemius and the capsule. The deep infrapatellar bursa is located between the patellar tendon and the tibia.

👉39 B) The distal fi bula forms the lateral malleolus of the ankle and is joined to the tibia and to the talus.

👉40 C) The ankle jerk (Achilles reflex) occurs when the Achilles tendon is tapped when the foot is slightly dorsiflexed and produces plantar flexion.

Hii everyone, I'm Dr Lalit Choudhary PT. Born and brought up in delhi. Practicing as a professional PHYSIOTHERAPIST. As a therapist I love to interact with others and and get myself updated regarding all the social issues which are leading my countrymen to distress themselves. Yes, I agree that Iam a workaholic but my work gives me immense pleasure but there are sometimes when I feel stressed up so to relax myself I travel to new places, meet new people and try to adopt their culture. Most of the time I like to travel hills as it helps me to relax and enjoy our nature beauty. For being a good therapist and to deal with all the difficulties I always prefer to be good listener and have good patience that is what my strength is. I also work as a social worker and the Founder of thesocialphysiofitnessclub and PHYSIO FIT INDIA. In last I just want to say that " I believe that physical therapy is not just a therapy but actually a remedy which not only make you physically fit but also adds happiness, joy and more days to your life." So don't just sit and thought now it's time to stand and work on yourself.
