Kinesiology Structural Kinesiology: Study of human movements by identifying the anatomical elements The skeletal system -Not completely ridged -Not completely flexible joints -Axial Skeleton: Trunk and spine, neck, head -Appendicular Skeleton: Upper and lower extremities -5 Major functions 1. Support to maintain posture 2. Movement by serving as points of attachment for muscles and activate as levers 3. Protection 4. Storage for minerals 5. Blood formation The muscular system -Function: exert force through contraction -3 Types of contraction 1. Isometric: Same length (Stabilizes joints) 2. Concentric: Shortening (Starts Movement) 3. Eccentric: Lengthening (Stops Movement) Connective Tissue -Tendon: Attaches muscle to bone -Ligament: Attaches a bone to another bone (Forms a joint) Anatomical Position: Palms facing forward Sagittal Plane Right and left halves Medialateral Flexion/ extension Dorsi/planarflexion Frontal Plane Front and back halves Anteroposterior Adduction/Abduction Depression/Elevation Transvers Plane Top and bottom halves Longitudinal External/internal rotation Pronation/supination Protraction/retraction Anterior: Front of the body Posterior: Back of the body Medial: Towards the middle Lateral: Towards the side Superior: Towards the head Inferior: Away from the head Proximal: Near the trunk/origin Distal: Away from the trunk/origin Superficial: Near the surface Deep: Beneath the surface Prone: Face downward Supine: Face upward
