  1. Mechanical effects:
    moving displaced organs, softening fascia/adhesions, making tissue more pliable, movement of blood and lymph
  2. Rectus Femoris 
    A:
    O:
    • ~flex and the hip, extend at the knee
    • ~AIIS
  3. Muscles that insert on the mastoid process:
    • SCM
    • Splenius Capitus
    • Longissimus Capitus
  4. Contralateral Rotators:
    • SCM
    • Semispinalis
  5. Ipsilateral Rotators:
    • Splenius Capitus
    • Longissimus Capitus
  6. Hamstrings; medial to lateral
    • semimembranosus
    • semitendinosus
    • biceps femoris
  7. Hamstrings A=
    • flexion at the knee
    • extension at the hip
  8. Hamstrings I=
    Ischial Tuberosity
  9. Bilateral (A) of SCM
    flexion of the head
  10. Gluteus Maximus
    I=
    A=
    • I= IT Band
    • A= extension and lateral rotation, as in: climbing stairs, initiating walking, standing up
  11. Deep 6 Lateral Rotators:
    • piriformis (sciatica)
    • quadratus femoris (does not abduct and does not insert on the greater trochanter)
  12. Adductor Magnus 
    A=
    (also known as)
    A= front flexion, back extension

    AKA: 4th hamstring, due to referring pain to ischial tuberosity
  13. All adductors
