Explore the musculoskeletal structures that stabilize and move the axial skeleton. Rediscover the articulations, supporting structures and biomechanics of the temporomandibular joint, the joints of the vertebral column and thoracic cage. Refresh your knowledge on the origins, insertions, and actions of the muscles within the axial skeleton.
In this course, you will learn:
- The importance of the temporomandibular joint, including all muscles, ligaments, biomechanics and dysfunction.
- The joints within the different sections of the vertebral column including the articulations with the thoracic cage.
- How the musculoskeletal structures work to stabilize and move the axial skeleton including the neck, thoracic cage, vertebral column, and abdomen.
- The functions and clinical significance of the muscles of the back, and understand the anatomy and functions of each layer.
- The superficial and deep abdominal muscles, joints, ligaments, important structures, and muscles including arteries.
- The anatomical areas and important structures of the neck and abdomen including the muscles involved and the function of these structures.
