    2. What planes do each move in?
    3. If an Individuals foot is externally rotated when standing, which parts of the leg will most likely also externall rotate?
    • 1 & 2.) Flexion, Extension (sagittal plane- coronal axis)
    • Abduction,Adduction (anterior-posterior axis)
    • Internal/Medial rotation, External/Lateral Rotation (longitudal axis)
    • 3. tibia/fibula, etc...-The whole leg
  4. #4.) 1.What are the 4 main movements of scapula?
    • 1. Protraction: abduction of scapula
    • 2. Retraction: adduction of scapula
    • 3. Elevation: Raising of scapula(shrug)
    • 4. Depression: Lowering of scapula
  5. #5.) 1. What is pronation and Supination at the Wrist?
    2. Ankle?
    • 1.Supination: Movement of the forearm where the palm rotaes to face forwar from neutral to anatomical position at the radioulnar joint.
    • Pronation: Movement of the forearm where the palm rotates to face backward
    • 2. Supination: is a triplane moton which combines the movements o inversion,adduction,plantar-flexion
    • Pronantion: is a triplane motion consisting of simultaneous movement of eversion,abduction,dorsiflexion
  6. #6.) 1.What are the 3 main parts of a muscle?
    2. What is the job of the sternocleidmastoid?
    • 1.
    • 1. Belly: the bulging part of the muscle
    • 2. Origin(or head): the less moveable attachment
    • (ther can be more then 1 origin)
    • 3. Insertion: The moveable attachment

    • 2. Flex Head-->Origin------Insertion
    • (turn neck) -->Sternum----Temperal Bone
