Basic Principles and Theories (part 1)

Application of mechanical principles in the study of living organisms.

Branch of physics that analyzes the actions of the forces on particles and mechanical systems.

STATICS
Branch of mechanics dealing with systems in a constant state of motion, that is, either at rest or moving with a constant velocity.

DYNAMICS
A branch of mechanics dealing with systems subject to acceleration.

The study of forces associated with motion.

A branch of mechanics that describes the motion of a body, without regard to the forces or torques that may produce the motion.

2 TYPES OF MOTION

Translation
Translation describes a linear motion in which all parts of a rigid body move parallel to and in the same direction as every other part of the body.

Translation
Can occur in either a straight line (rectilinear) or a curved line (curvilinear).

Rotation
Describes an angular motion in which an assumed rigid body moves in a circular path about pivot point or an axis of

rotation.

Rotation
An imaginary line extending through a joint about which rotation occurs. It is the point where motion of the rotating body is zero.

OSTEOKINEMATICS
Osteokinematics describes the motion of bones relative to the three cardinal (principal) planes of the body: sagittal, frontal, and horizontal

osteokinematics

The body is in the ANATOMICAL POSITION when standing upright With feet together, hands by the side And face looking forward.
osteokinematics

The mouth is closed and facial expression is neutral

The rim of the bone under the eyes is in the same horizontal plane as the top of the opening to the ear

and the eyes are open and focused on something in the distance.
The palms of the hands face forward with the fingers straight and together

and with the pad of the thumb turned 90 to the pads of the fingers. The toes point forward.

CONVEX-ON-CONCAVE SURFACE MOVEMENT

If the bone with the convex joint surface moves on the bone with concavity, the convex joint surfaces move in the OPPOSITE direction to the bone segment.

CONCAVE-ON-CONVEX SURFACE MOVEMENT

If the bone with the concavity moves on the convex surface, the concave articular surfaces move in the SAME direction as the bone segment.

Unique position of most joints of the body where the articular surfaces are most congruent, and the ligaments are maximally taut.

Position of most joints of the body where the articular surfaces are least congruent and the ligaments are slackened.
