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.

Skeletal Asymmetry 2

Purpose: As an introduction to the “scan” part of physical assessment. Illustrates several somatic dysfunctions. When introduced to students, the comment was usually, “As the camera pans down the vertebral column, look for the change in direction of the spinous processes. Also note the subtle curvature of the vertebral column.” Both sidebending and rotation of vertebra are illustrated.
