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.
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!
Functional movement refers to whole-body movements we do in daily life. That might include movements like squatting, lunging, and reaching.
The physiology of stretching our muscles is still uncertain. But research suggests stretching can benefit range of motion as well as other body systems.
David uses the examples of running and cycling to explain how the lateral hip muscles function in movement.
David summarizes current research which describes how the rotator cuff muscles support movement in the body.
David describes how the elbow and forearm contribute to some simple daily movements like turning a doorknob.
David applies anatomical movements of the shoulder joint to some daily movements and sports actions.
How does iliopsoas move? Iliopsoas is not just related to the possible movements we can do; it’s intimately related to our quality of movement.
Kinesiology is defined as: the study of the principles of mechanics and anatomy in relation to human movement. This website is dedicated to guiding and teaching you the major muscles of the body using 3d Models.
