Time for another anatomy lesson. This is required watching!
Every athlete should have a basic understanding of human anatomy. So the next time you have that annoying pain in your shoulder you know where it’s most likely originating from.
eOrthoPod is a fantastic free resource for all things involving the musculoskeletal system. I encourage you to explore their site on your own. In addition to the tutorial videos, they also have tons of informative discussions with experts from various fields about pathologies and their different treatments.
Each video follows a logical outline starting with bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves and blood vessels.
