Kinesiology muscle database

M. deltoideus pars clavicularis,   M. deltoideus pars acromialis, M. deltoideus pars spinalis.  Kinesiology muscle testing  This kinesiology Muscle Database is presented by the Swedish School of Manual Kinesiology and is the first complete database of muscles on the Internet.
It includes all muscles in the body.

At the moment it encompasses the name of the muscle, innervation, attachments (origin-insertion) and muscle-function. Later on we are planning to add more specific kinesiologic medicine information, such as neurolymphatic and neurovascular receptors, acupuncture-meridian associations, clinical nutrition, manual muscle tests, etc.



 M. deltoideus pars clavicularis,   M. deltoideus pars acromialis, M. deltoideus pars spinalis.  Kinesiology muscle testing  International Anatomical Terminology
The revision of modern anatomical terminology was initiated in 1887. More than hundred years later the new Terminologia Anatomica - International Anatomical Terminology was finally accepted by the International Federation of Association of Anatomists (IFAA) in 1997.
This means that all medical practitioners (both traditional and complementary) in every country around the world now have a common terminology.
The Muscle Database is based on this new international anatomical terminology.

 Kinesiology muscle testing  Latin
Anatomical terminology is the foundation of medical terminology and Latin is the international anatomical language. Only Latin is the international basis for creating equivalent terms in other languages. English is not the basis for terminology in other languages.

 Kinesiology muscle testing  Anatomical terminology for kinesiologic medicine
In different branches of kinesiologic medicine (such as Applied Kinesiology or Touch for Health Kinesiology) several old anatomical terms are frequently used. One example is "Anterior Deltoid". The correct term in English for that muscle is "Deltoid clavicular part" and in Latin "M. deltoideus pars clavicularis". We hope that this Muscle Database also will serve as an inspiration to use more correct anatomical terminology, that can be common for all different kinesiologists using manual muscle testing around the world.

Muscle Group
All individual muscles belong to a larger group of general muscles.
Muscle
The correct internationally accepted Latin term for the muscle and its parts.
Anatomical identifying number
The IFAA have created a unique identifying number for every single anatomical structure in the body
Name in English
The accepted English term for people in English speaking countries.
Innervation (nerve)
The nerve that innervates the muscle.
Attachment (origin)
The correct Latin term is Insertio and the new English translation is Attachment.
The old term "origin" is no longer used, as it changes with function.
Attachment (insertion)
The correct Latin term is Insertio and the new English translation is Attachment.
The old term "insertion" is no longer used, as it changes with function.
Function
The muscle function/movement.
