Sample text

At the hip and shoulder, the axes of motion are similar: The axis for flexion-extension has a medial-lateral direction; the axis for abduction-adduction has an anterior-posterior direction; and the axis for rotation courses in a superiorinferior direction in the anatomical position. Three degrees of freedom of motion are the greatest number of degrees of motion a joint can possess. 6 depicts the various joint structural types. Unless otherwise stated, joint motion occurs with the proximal segment fixed and the distal segment moving.

Description of Types of Motion The body and its segments move one of two ways: Motion is either translatory or rotary. These motions are defined and explained in this section. Translatory Motion In translatory, or linear, motion, the motion occurs along or parallel to an axis. Linear motion means that all points on the moving object travel the same distance, in the same direction with the same velocity, and at the same time. An example of translatory motion is an elevator moving straight up and down within an elevator shaft.

The first unit is basic to understanding the other units of the book. It deals with the basic information that is relevant to the understanding of how the body functions from a kinesiological perspective. Chapter 1 provides information on the basic structure and function of joints and muscles as well as planes and directions of motion. Chapter 2 involves the physical concepts that produce forces and torque, create levers, and how these impact body movement. Although it discusses physics concepts, it does so with a clinical approach, placing little emphasis on the mathematical methodology and more emphasis on the functional application.
