Joint Actions (iclicker)

Transverse Axis/Sagittal Plane Motions
Flexion, extension, hyperextension, dorsiflexion, and plantar flexion
Flexion, extension, hyperextension, dorsiflexion, and plantar flexion (with answers)

Anterior-Posterior Axis/Frontal Plane Motions
Adduction, abduction, radial deviation, ulnar deviation, eversion, inversion, and lateral flexion
Adduction, abduction, radial deviation, ulnar deviation, eversion, inversion, and lateral flexion (with answers)

Longitudinal Axis/Transverse Plane Motions
Rotation, horizontal abduction and adduction, supination, and pronation
Rotation, horizontal abduction and adduction, supination, and pronation (with answers)

Supination of the foot and ankle
  • Ankle inversion
  • Plantar flexion
  • Sub-talar joint adduction

In class questions: Practice recognizing motions
Baseball pitch
Layback
Soccer kick
Dive

In small groups choose activity and joint to describe motion
