Applied Musculoskeletal Anatomy
To introduce functional anatomy of the human body with emphasis on the musculoskeletal system, and peripheral vasculature.
- • Anatomical Terminology
• Musculoskeletal anatomy – origin, insertion, action
• Shoulder, Arm, Elbow, Forearm, Wrist, Hand
• Upper Limb – surface anatomy and vessels
• Hip, Thigh, Knee, Ankle and Foot
• Lower Limb - surface anatomy and vessels
• Thoracic, Abdominal and Pelvic Walls/Floor
• Vertebral Column, Spinal Muscles, surface anatomy of the back
• Neck, Skull and Face
• Functional musculoskeletal anatomy
• Surface palpation of the human body
- Learning Outcomes
- 1. Apply correct anatomical terminology when describing the musculoskeletal elements of the human body.
2. Identify and describe the bone, musculature, and vasculature of the upper limb.
3. Identify and describe the bone, musculature, and vasculature of the lower limb.
4. Identify and describe the bone, musculature, and vasculature of the head and torso.
5. Apply anatomical knowledge to palpation and functional assessment of the human body.
