Note to self:
IMPORTANT ANATOMY DIRECTION TERMS
anterior & posterior = in front & behind
superior & inferior = above & bellow
lateral & medial = away from center & close to center
abduction & aduction = (limbs moving) away from body & towards the body
internal- & external rotation = limbs rotating inwards or outwards
flexion & extension = (for spine) rounding & arching
sidebending = sidebending
supination & pronation = (for hands) internal & external rotation
inversion & eversion = (for the foot) ????
more clarity on every specific area will come as you advance in future modules 🙂
