Understanding the three main planes of movement, sagittal, frontal, and transverse, can us conceptualize more complex, multiplanar movements.
The gait cycle is the technical name for how we walk. We can better understand other functional movements by taking a look at how we walk.
Rotator cuff issues are a common cause of shoulder pain. They can result from overuse, acute trauma, muscle imbalance, and other reasons.
The ankle joint is a complicated structure of multiple bones, muscles, and ligaments that allow for the necessary mobility and stability of movement.
The deep six lateral rotators are involved with a surprising variety of types of hip movement. Despite their name, they do much more than laterally rotate!
The sacroiliac joints are small but unique joints in our body, which connect the sacrum to the ilium. They are critical for both stability and movement.
The physiology of stretching our muscles is still uncertain. But research suggests stretching can benefit range of motion as well as other body systems.
Valgus and varus knee positions describe the way the tibia meets the femur at the knee joint. They refer to a pattern where the knee is positioned either medial or lateral of the ideal. In this position, the knee is more vulnerable to some types of strain on tissues surrounding it, which may cause pain as well as reduced function.
The five adductor muscles form a fan of tissue on the medial thigh. They function to stabilize our pelvis when we’re standing our walking.
Explore the bones, joints, and ligaments that make up the knee joint. Learn how the knee moves and functions.
David walks us through the structures that make up the elbow joint and create the kinetic chain from the shoulder to the wrist.
David takes us through an exploration of the erector spinae muscles. Find out where they attach and what actions they do.
