Introduction to Anatomy Preview

Intro P2 - The Cell

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

Intro P3 - The Nervous System & Cardio-Respiratory System

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

Intro P4 - Lymphatic System & Endocrine System

Learn how the body regulates the health of the blood stream, fights off infection and expels infections through our lymph nodes.

Intro P5 - Digestive, Urinary & Reproductive System

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.

Intro P6 - Skeletal System

Functions of The Skeletal System and how our skeletal has evolved to protect, support, move and store nutrients for our better survival.

Intro P7 - Classification of Joints

Understanding how each joint is classified differently from their shape, congruency and articulations. From fused joints, to irregular joints to synovial joints.

Intro P8 - Muscular System

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.

intro P9 - Integumentary System

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.

Lower Limb Anatomy Introduction

An introduction to everything you will learn in this lower limb anatomy of movement workshop! Taught by Keith O'Malley-Farrell

Lower Limb - Pelvic Girdle

Starting at the Pelvic Girdle, the area where the lower limb articulates with the appendicular skeleton, or in simple terms, the torso.

Lower Limb - The Hip Joint

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.

Lower Limb - Muscles Acting on The Hip

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 - Muscles Acting on the Knee Joint

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.

Lower Limb - The Knee Joint

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.

Lower Limb - Bones & Joints of The Lower Leg

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.

Lower Limb - Talocrural Joint

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.

Lower Limb - The Accessory Joints of the Foot

Understand how the biomechanics of the foot move at the Subtalar Joint and the Midtarsal Joint as the foot an ankle impact the ground.

Lower Limb - Muscles Acting Over the Foot & Ankle

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

Lower Limb Recap & Conclusion

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.

Trunk Anatomy - The Rib Cage

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.
