no its proximal
Yes. Distal means farther from the point of attachment or from the center of the body. So the knee is distal to the hip, and the food would be distal to the knee and so on.
It is proximal as the knee is closer to the median / midline of the body than the foot. The foot is distal. Distal suggests a structure being further away from the median… plane or the root of the limb than another structure in the limb. Proximal refers to a structure being closer to the median plane or root of the limb than another structure in the limb
The foot is distal to the knee Yes, because the origin of the leg is at the hip, and the thigh is closer to the hip than the foot.
Proximal means closer to the origin of the body part or the point of attachment of a limb to the body trunk. Distal means farther from the origin of a body part or the point o…f attachment of a limb to the body trunk. In this case, because the thigh is closer to the body trunk than the knee, the knee is distal to the thigh.
It is never looked at this way. We always use the point of attachment of the limb as the starting point. The ankle is distal from the knee. No one would use it any other way.
No. The thigh is proximal to the knee.
One of the most important things to check is the medical history of patients when starting to provide diagnosis. This is important because it helps in finding out the causes a…nd symptoms of the pain. Next step is go take extensive physical examinations in order to determine the severity of the condition alongside x-rays and other imaging techniques.Along with this, ultrsonography, arthrography and magnetic resonance imaging can help in finding out the different causes, symptoms and signs of this problem. The treatment for the pain could be a choice to go for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs which can work wonders. These include ibuprofen and naproxen, which are two of the most trusted pain relievers. Others such as Sports massage techniques and rehabilitation can also help greatly treating this kind of medical condition. Happy to help you.
The toes are distal to the knee. They are farther away from the origin of the lower leg.
The foot is distal to the calf. It's farther away from the starting point of the lower limb.
The knee is proximal to the foot. Distal means further from the point of origin; proximal means closer to the point of origin.
