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.


Sacral Motion Through the Gait Cycle

Purpose: Normal gait cycle mechanics of the sacrum, innominates and lumbar spine. Normal physiologic motion of both left on left and right on right at different phases of the gait cycle is illustrated. When there is a restriction, it becomes a somatic dysfunction, specifically a forward sacral torsion, either left on left or right on right.
