Learn more about the cell, the structure and function of the cell and how the body is interconnected not just seperate individual building blocks, with Matt Cotterill
How the nervous dictates how the body moves, thinks and feels by acting as the control system of the body from the brain through the spinal cord to the peripheries and how the lungs heart and blood stream deliver nutrients around the body
Learn how the body regulates the health of the blood stream, fights off infection and expels infections through our lymph nodes.
Learn how the cells form together and form the system that enables us absorb nutrients from our food and liquids and links to our blood stream to deliver the nutrients.
Functions of The Skeletal System and how our skeletal has evolved to protect, support, move and store nutrients for our better survival.
Understanding how each joint is classified differently from their shape, congruency and articulations. From fused joints, to irregular joints to synovial joints.
Learn the structure and function of muscles, how they contract at a cellular level with the Sliding Filament Theory explained, concentric, eccentric and isometric contractions.
Learn how the skin forms our outer protective layer, the components f the integumentary system, the layers of the thick and thin skin explained and how the skin functions to absorb nutrients and excretes waste and enable us sense the environment around us and our experience with pressure temperature and pain.
An introduction to everything you will learn in this lower limb anatomy of movement workshop! Taught by Keith O'Malley-Farrell
Starting at the Pelvic Girdle, the area where the lower limb articulates with the appendicular skeleton, or in simple terms, the torso.
Learn the articulating surfaces, the boney landmarks, the acetabulum of the hip, the labrum of the hip, the hip capsule and it's insertion points, the ligaments of the hip joint and it's special characteristics like it's bursae.
Arguably the most important muscles to how to rehabilitate poor posture and back pain, not to mention how to improve strength and power outputs of the glutes and core.
Lower Limb P5 - Muscles Acting on the Knee Joint Learn the anatomical movements of the knee joint, the origins and insertions of the muscles that control those movements.
Understand the structures surrounding the knee joint that can get injured and give yourself an in-depth understanding of how to rehab for knee injuries, how to fix cartilage problems and how to strengthen after knee ligament tears. Also learn what is the ACL and why does the ACL take so long to recover after injury.
The structure and function of boney landmarks of the Tibia, Fibula and the bones of the foot. And understand what causes shin splints and what is MTSS.
What is the true ankle joint made up of that gives us the stability and instability and understand why our ankle ligaments are at often injured and how to rehabilitate our ankles after an injury.
Understand how the biomechanics of the foot move at the Subtalar Joint and the Midtarsal Joint as the foot an ankle impact the ground.
Understanding which muscles make up the calfs and how they cause the ankle to plantarflex and which muscles cause the foot and ankle to Dorsiflex, combined the minute movements that occur further along the distal joints of the foot as a result of the origins and insertions of these muscles
Rewind briefly over everything you have learned so far on your journey to a much deeper understanding of the human body anatomy and movement, in this case with the lower limb.
Learn more about the sternoclavicular Joint and Acromioclavicular Joint. Learn how the arm connects to the body and how we can rehab the shoulder ligaments when injured
Understand how the human shoulder is so dynamic and built for movement at the expense of stability and what muscles move the shoulder in the shoulder joint and how we can improve them.
Understand the structure and function of the Glenohumeral Joint, how shoulder stability is crucial for its dynamic function and strength and stability.
Learn what muscles flex your shoulder, what muscles extend your shoulder and what muscles abduct and what are the rotator cuff muscles in your shoulder
Learn the anatomical make up of the elbow and why the elbow rarely dislocates. Understand the make up of the forearm how the bones of the wrist move.
Learn exactly which muscle bends the elbow when the wrist is turned in different positions, which muscles extend the elbow and which are dominant in different hand positions.
What are the names of the different bones in the hand? Learn the answer to this question and also how the bones articulate with each other and make the joints of the hand and the thumb.
Learn about how the wrist moves specifically in relation to the muscles that make up the forearm and wrist, understand how the bones of the wrist and hand articulate together and give us the function we often take for granted.
Learn how the bones in the hand articulate with each other, the types of joints in the hands and the names given to the joints of the palm, the thumb and the palm of the hand and the fingers and the palm as well as the joints commonly referred to as the knuckles, the special features like the volar plates of the fingers, and what can happen when we dislocate our fingers.
Learn about the muscles that live in your forearm that control flexion of your wrist and the fingers. Understand the unique anatomy of the flexors of the fingers and how our hands achieve very fine precision movements.
Introduction to anatomy of the trunk and what you will learn when you enrol on this trunk online anatomy course
Discussing the different sections of the spine, what makes up the cervical spine, what makes up the thoracic spine and how the ribs play their part, and what are the special characteristics of the lumbar spine and the sacrum
Understand what lordosis is, what kyphosis is and what scoliosis is and how poor posture affects how we move and if we are vulnerable to feeling pain and or discomfort.
Learn the basic fundamental break down of the lumbar spine vertebral bones and how their shape inis derived from the need to bare the load of the upper body and how that determines a lot of the function of the lower back.
Learn the fundamental anatomyand the difference in anatomy of the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacrum and coccyx. How this anatomy determines the function and movement and stability at each of the different segments of the spine.
Learn the underlying articulating surfaces between the sacrum and the ilium and the ligaments that surround this joint giving it its very strong and stable function.
Learn the anatomy of the pelvic floor so you can better speak with your clients about the implications of a weak pelvic floor and the adverse effects that can have on our well being
Understanding the movement and stability available at the lower spine through the vertebral column and the muscles that encapsulates the area, delivering both movement and stability of our core musculature.
Understanding the basic anatomy of the rib cage and how that effects our respiration and breathing mechanisms, very important to understand when teaching clients how to learn to breath properly.
Learn the mechanics & which muscles work when we breath in and exhale
Which muscles work to give us movement of the neck and the middle back
