The students learned a long list of new vocabulary words today, including anterior and posterior, superior and inferior, lateral and medial, to name a few. We learned three planes and the various body actions to do while inside of those planes:
- Sagittal -- flexion, extension, hyperextension
- Frontal -- abduction and adduction
- Transverse -- rotation
Then we put markers on bony landmarks of the body to begin to assess posture. Our skeletal assessment considered typical deviations such as forward head, lumbar lordosis, kyphosis, swayback, among others.
