Lower Limb Anatomy & Movement
You will learn;
Part 1: Understand in detail the boney structures that comprise the pelvis, femur, patella, tibia, fibula and the foot and how they form;
Part 2: The origins and insertions of each of the muscles that act on the joint segmented by their primary function during a concentric contraction.
External & Internal Rotation of the Tibia
Ankle Plantarflexion & Toe Flexion
Ankle Dorsiflexion & Toe Extension
Evertors and Invertors of the Foot
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.
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.
