Motion Animations to Demonstrate Musculoskeletal Functioning

All of the animations will be more easily understood if they can be repeated at least once. In the classroom they illustrate the point better when put on continuous repeat and then stop the motion when necessary to illustrate a specific point.


Bilateral Sacral Flexion

Purpose: Illustrates the motion of a bilateral sacral flexion, the sacral base moves forward, but also the corresponding movement of the lower lumbar spine. Can be used to explain why there is motion during the lumbosacral spring test, e.g. a “negative” spring test.
