Functional anatomy helps us better understand produce, reduce, and stabilize forces along with their joint actions. In this episode Rick talks about the core musculature including the “inner unit” of the core that helps stabilize the spine.
The following muscles will be reviewed:
- transverse abdominus
- multifidus, rotatores, and transversospinalis
- internal and external obliques
- erector spinae (spinalis, longissimus, and iliocostalis)
- recutus abdominus
This is the third in a series that addresses muscles from the bottom up. Continue to listen as we make our way through the major muscles throughout the body.
