Anatomical Planes and Axes: How we communicate where motion occurs

To truly know anatomy, you must be able to discuss in anatomical parlance.

Layman terms are usually ambiguous. If I need to communicate detail, I need the science terms.

For example, if I want to talk about how a client’s humeral position is affecting their glenoid labrum, describing it with the word “shoulder” is not enough. Whereas I think the shoulder joint is the glenohumeral joint, others may think I’m talking about the deltoid muscle, upper trap, rotator cuff, etc…

This video will quickly go through the terms we use to describe anatomical location.
