POK 1 “Guidance for Routine Handling “• These anatomy slides should help you focus your attention;• ? Think what structures are you targeting and locating & why• ? What are the bony landmarks• ? What will you applicators be• ? Where are your contact points• ? What structures might you stabilize/move
Biceps brachii• Origin – Long head - supraglenoid tubercle – Short head - coracoid process• Insertion – Radial tuberosity & bicipital aponeurosis• Action – Shoulder & elbow flexion, supination• Innervation – Musculocutaneus nerve (C5-C6)
The Wrist and Hand• Keep thinking about;• The relationship of all the bones of the upper Limb• What are the anatomical links?• What muscles have an effect over more than 1 joint ?• What are the main nerves that supply the Upper limb and hand?
