Anatomical Opposites

anterior vs. posterior

superior vs. inferior

medial vs. lateral

proximal vs. distal

palmar vs. plantar

abduction vs. adduction

eversion vs. inversion

internal rotation vs. external rotation

flexion vs. extension

plantar flexion vs. dorsiflexion

pronation vs. supination

radial deviation vs. ulnar deviation

protraction vs. retraction

anatomical position
Anatomical Position

Stand straight up with palms forward

slide3
Anterioror front

- EX. Knees are located on the anterior surface of the body

Posterioror back

- EX. Scapula is located on the posterior surface of the body

slide4
Superior – upper or above another.

- EX: The head is superior to the feet

Inferior – lower or below another.

- EX: The feet are inferior to the head.

slide5
Medial – toward the mid-line of the body
  • Lateral – away from the mid-line of the body
slide6
Proximal – toward the point of attachment to the body
  • Distal – Away from the point of attachment to the body
slide7
Palmar – palm of hand

Plantar – bottom of foot

slide8
Abduction – To move away or deviate from the midline of the body

Adduction – deviate toward or draw toward the midline of the body

slide9
Eversion –

turning outward

Inversion –

turning inward

slide10
External rotation – rotary motion in the transverse plane away from the midline

Internal Rotation – rotary motion in the transverse plane toward the midline

internal rotation external rotation

slide11
Flexion – to bend; when a joint is flexed, the part distal to the joint bends

Extension – To straighten; when the part distal to a joint extends and decreases joint angle

slide13
Plantar flexion – movement of ankle downward

Dorsiflexion – movement of ankle upward

slide14
Pronation–the palm is turned downward; laying on your stomach

supination

Supination – the palm is turned upward; laying on your back

pronation

slide15
Radial Deviation – Wrist abduction

Ulnar Deviation – Wrist adduction

slide16
Retraction – to pull in a backward motion

Protraction – to elevate and push towards the frontal plane

protractionretraction

slide19
It is possible to combine motions to describe a movement.

- Ex. Abduction external rotation of the shoulder complex

body planes and sections
Body Planes and Sections
  • Sagittal Plane – lengthwise cut that divides the body into right and left halves.
  • Movements:

- Flexion/Extension

- Hyperextension

-Plantar/Dorsiflexion

slide21
Transverse Plane – horizontal cut that divides the body into upper and lower parts
  • Movements:

- int/ex rotation

- supination/pronation

- right/left rotation

- horizontal ab/adduction

slide22
Frontal Plane – divides body into anterior and posterior portions
  • Movements:

-abduction/adduction

- radial/ulnar deviation

- inversion/eversion

- lateral flexion
