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.


Setup for a Muscle Energy Treatment of the Sacrum

Purpose: Illustrates a simple way to get the patient in an appropriate position for a muscle energy treatment of a sacral torsion with the right axis down. The blue pointer indicates pushing or stabilizing the right thigh while the maroon symbol indicates pulling at the ankles. The end result is the patient is most of the way to a right lateral Sims position, the preferred treatment position, with a minimum of time consuming effort on the part of the patient.
