Anatomical Opposites 1. anterior vs. posterior 2. superior vs. inferior 3. medial vs. lateral 4. proximal vs. distal 5. palmar vs. plantar 6. abduction vs. adduction 7. eversion vs. inversion 8. internal rotation vs. external rotation 9. flexion vs. extension 10. plantar flexion vs. dorsiflexion 11. radial deviation vs. ulnar deviation *The terms in italics have been on previous vocabulary lists… and should be in your notes!
Anatomical Opposites Foldable Create a foldable using a white sheet of paper. 1. Hold the paper the long way (portrait layout or “hot dog”) 2. Fold the ends until they meet in the middle, creating two long columns 3. Measure one inch sections and draw a line across both front flaps 4. Cut the sections to create 11 flaps 5. Write one anatomical term on one flap and the opposite term on the flap directly across 6. Draw a picture underneath the flap to represent the definition. SEE MS. BROWN FOR AN EXAMPLE
Anatomical Position Stand straight up with palms forward
Anterior or front - EX. Knees are located on the anterior surface of the body Posterior or back - EX. Scapula is located on the posterior surface of the body
Superior – upper or above another. - EX: The head is superior to the feet Inferior – lower or below another. - EX: The feet are inferior to the head.
Medial – toward the mid-line of the body Lateral – away from the mid- line of the body
Proximal – toward the point of attachment to the body Distal – Away from the point of attachment to the body
Palmar – palm of hand Plantar – bottom of foot
Abduction – To move away or deviate from the midline of the body Adduction – deviate toward or draw toward the midline of the body
