This module delves into the important concepts of three-dimensional muscle function. Because the human body functions as an integrated system – not isolated parts – the effects of muscles are considered beyond the anatomical joint or joints that a particular muscle may cross. Expanding our thinking beyond the anatomical model into the functional model opens up endless possibilities for assessment and training of individual muscles while integrated in the total body system.
