Axis of movement and planes of movement get mixed up all the time, and I can see why…
Axis and planes of movement are different, however, they certainly relate. This module of the “Body In Motion” will come up in your Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology exam. Knowing the difference between axis and planes of movements will be key as you can expect 4 to 6 exam questions around this module.
In this video, I explain the difference between Axis of Movement and Planes of Movement.
If you watch until the end there is another video to help you further, here’s the link if you want to head there now: What are the 3 Anatomical Planes of Movement?
Learning Point 1: Planes of Movement?
We have three planes of movement:
Learning Point 2: Axis of Movement?
The Axis of Movement is the invisible straight line that our joints move around.
We also have three of these:
Learning Point 3: Do they relate?
What is the difference between the axis of movement and planes of movement?
These do relate to each other!
READ THE FOLLOWING VERY CAREFULLY AND TAKE NOTE.
THIS IS FUNDAMENTAL FOR YOUR EXAM
All Sagittal Plane movements occur around a Medial-Lateral Axis
All Frontal Plane movements occur around an Anterior-Posterior Axis
All Transverse Plane Movements occur around a longitudinal Axis.
In summary: Axis and planes of movement are different, however, the certainly relate. This module of the “Body In Motion” will come up in your Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology exam. Knowing the difference between axis and planes of movements will be key as you can expect 4 to 6 exam questions around this module.
