Have you ever visualized muscle tissues and structures every time you work with your clients? AMTA- NE is pleased to announce the return of Cadaver Workshop in conjunction with The University of Nebraska- Kearney Health Sciences Education Complex. If you want a hands-on, close up view of many of the muscle structures you encounter on a day to day basis, please join us!
Instructor: Satera Nelson, MS
Satera obtained a bachelor’s degrees in Nutrition Science and Ethnic Studies from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2013. She then worked as a teaching assistant for Human Anatomy at the same university for 2.5 years. She continued her education with a masters in Medical Anatomy from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2017 and was recruited to work for UNMC as a faculty member a couple of months later. She enjoys traveling, reading, and spending time with her family.
These courses are designed as a review of gross anatomy for massage therapists. Structured cadaveric lab sessions will explore anatomical relationships of muscles, nerves, bones and viscera of the human body. Lab sessions will be preceded by a brief classroom review of regions to be discussed.
Section one - Back & Upper Limbs
This section will begin with exploration of the intrinsic muscles groups of the back including the vertebral column and spinal cord. Extrinsic muscles of the back will segue into the structure and function of the upper limb. Emphasis will be placed on spatial relationship of muscles and nerves, in addition to bony landmarks.
Section two - Pelvis and Lower Limbs
This section will explore the structure and function of the lower limb, with emphasis on spatial relationships of the muscles, nerves, and bony landmarks. Additionally, Pelvic anatomy will be demonstrated, focusing on its relationships with the lower limb. Urinary and reproductive organs will also be discussed.
Section three - Thorax and Abdomen
This section will explore the organs of the thorax and abdomen. Anatomical donors will reveal the physical relationships of the heart and lungs. Function will be discussed with regard to anatomical features. The abdominal dissection will demonstrate the complex organization of the viscera and blood vessels within the abdomen. Additionally, the viscera will be removed to explore the posterior abdominal wall.
Section four - Head and Neck
This section is considered the crème de la crème of anatomical dissection. Participants will explore the complex relationship of muscles and nerves in the cervical region, followed by a demonstration of the muscles of the face. The brain will be removed and accompanied by a walkthrough of neuroanatomical structure and function. The cranial cavity will reveal the brain environment including origins of the 12 pairs of cranial nerves.
