Chapter 6. Musculoskeletal System: Consideration and Interventions for Specific Pediatric Pathologies
Answer Section


1. ANS: C
Rationale: Well-planned, regular exercise is beneficial for children with DMD and JIA working within the guidelines listed in the chapter. Children with EDS can participate in sporting activities; however, the therapist should work with the family to determine the sports that meet the child’s interest and prevent joint damage. Contact sports should be avoided. Children with CP typically move much less than able-bodied peers and therefore have poor endurance.

PTS: 1

2. ANS: B
Rationale: Resistive activities and eccentric contractions require increased muscle power and cause increased muscle damage.

PTS: 1

3. ANS: E
Rationale: Asymmetrical abduction is a common finding in all of the diseases.

PTS: 1

4. ANS: C
Rationale: Weak musculature and atypical/asymmetrical movement patterns are believed to be responsible for the higher incidence of scoliosis.

PTS: 1

5. ANS: A
Rationale: Torticollis is associated with developmental dysplasia of the hip as well as plagiocephaly.

PTS: 1

6. ANS: C
Rationale: The joint restrictions seen in arthrogryposis are believed to be due to a fetal muscular problem that decreases the amount of fetal movement. The lack of movement doesn’t break down the mesenchyme for joint formation. Arthrogryposis is a nonprogressive disorder, associated with a symmetrical pattern of muscle contractures and joint involvement. Cognitive impairments are not typically associated with this disorder.

PTS: 1

7. ANS: A
Rationale: OI is a genetic collagen mutation that results in fragile bones. More severe forms of OI present with multiple fractures as a result of the birthing process, whereas more mild forms may result in frequent fractures as a result of mild, seemingly insignificant injuries.

PTS: 1

8. ANS: B
Rationale: Hip extension range of motion is commonly lost in children with JIA. Prone lying encourages hip extension range of motion. Although some children may have lifelong degenerative changes, the inflammation associated with JIA will most likely go into remission.

PTS: 1

9. ANS: D
Rationale: Inflammatory hyperemia can cause bone overgrowth or early physeal closure. Hemimelia describes the congenital absence or shortening of a bone, which can cause bone or limb shortening. Joint contractures are one possible cause of apparent leg length discrepancy. A stress fracture of the diaphysis should not influence leg length, as it does not involve bone displacement.

PTS: 1

10. ANS: D
Rationale: 60 min of standing are needed 3 or more days a wk; 30 min has been found to be insufficient.

PTS: 1

11. ANS: D
Rationale: Children with cerebral palsy, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or idiopathic toe walking can all present to the clinic with the report of consistent or intermittent toe walking.

PTS: 1

12. ANS: C
Rationale: Community-based exercise programs have been shown to improve endurance and decrease joint symptoms (Klepper, 1999). Eighty percent of the children with polyarticular JIA who participated in an 8-week program of low-impact aerobics, strengthening, and flexibility exercises reported a significant improvement in joint pain and all had improved endurance. There were no reports of increased joint pain or inflammation. Children with JIA do not have joint bleeds.

PTS: 1

13. ANS: D
Rationale: All of listed problems occur in children with DMD.

PTS: 1

14. ANS: C
Rationale: Arthrogryposis is not associated with intellectual impairment, nor is it progressively debilitating. However, the weakness and contractures present at birth can delay milestone acquisition and lead to weakness. Physical therapy might help reduce or delay deformities, but physical therapy by itself will not correct the deformities.

PTS: 1

15. ANS: B
Rationale: Proximal weakness is greater than distal weakness in children with DMD.

PTS: 1

16. ANS: A
Rationale: Pseudohypertrophy (enlargement without increased strength) of the calf muscles is commonly seen in those with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

PTS: 1

17. ANS: E
Rationale: Impact exercise, such as running and jumping, can increase bone mineral density (Hind & Burrows, 2007; Vicente-Rodriguez et al., 2007; McKay et al., 2005). Improvements in bone mineralization were not seen in children who participated in non–weight-bearing exercise such as swimming (Grimston, Willows, & Hanley, 1993). Weight-bearing and intermittent weight-bearing programs also improve bone mineral density. Intermittent weight bearing with movement can be accomplished by partial weight-bearing ambulation through a use of a treadmill or gait trainer. Also, an upright standing frame that allows some weight shifting is beneficial.

PTS: 1

73. Smooth muscle makes up the walls of the hollow body organs, the blood vessels, and the respiratory passageways. It moves involuntarily, producing the wavelike motions of peristalsis that move substances through a system. Cardiac muscle makes up the wall of the heart. It moves involuntarily to pump blood out of the heart. Skeletal muscle is usually attached to bones and moves the skeleton. It is controlled voluntarily.
74. Dr. C will not be able to move her arm because acetylcholine will not be released. Normally, acetylcholine is released subsequent to an action potential in the motor neuron. It binds receptors in the motor end plate of the muscle, initiating an action potential that initiates a muscular contraction.
75. A. isotonic B. The quadriceps femoris is the prime mover, the hamstring group is the antagonist. C. This action is an example of a third-class lever. The weight of the boot is the resistance, the knee joint is the fulcrum, and the effort is generated in the front of the thigh (quadriceps femoris). The effort is exerted between the resistance and the fulcrum.
76. Ms. V has suffered a shoulder sprain. She should apply ice to constrict the small blood vessels in the region and minimize internal bleeding.

PTS: 1

3. ANS:
Systemic JIA is generally the most painful form of the disease (Adams & Lehman, 2005). The high number of joints involved, long duration of disease, and resulting orthopedic changes make this type of JIA one of the most debilitating.
