Trunk Anatomy & Stability
The musculature of your trunk or core, is of vital importance to understand fully from both a stability perspective when trying to understand problems like back pain and weakness, and also crucial to understand when trying to execute many of your body's primary movements. Every force passes through the trunk at some point since that's where our centre of gravity lies, so understand the building blocks of what is under tension and activated is the very first step in reducing pain and dysfunction and improving almost every single performance metric!
What you will learn upon completing of this Trunk Anatomy Lecture:
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. What are facets joints and how they align throughout the vertebral column
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 which muscles work when we breath in and exhale
Which muscles work to give us movement of the neck and the middle back
