Podcast: What's Wrong with Origin/Insertion


Origin/insertion terminology creates a rigidity in thinking that can obscure the simplicity of muscle function. In this episode of The ABMP Podcast, Kristin and Darren are joined by Dr. Joe Muscolino to discuss his article in the May/June 2023 issue of Massage & Bodywork magazine regarding origin/insertion and joint action terminology and why the more Dr. Joe has taught, the more he has come to dislike some of the foundational kinesiology terminologies.
