The trunk is made up of the spine, dorsally located, which runs it in the skull-caudal direction throughout its length. It is structurally subdivided into 3 parts, chest, abdomen and pelvis.

It is articulated with the head through the neck, constituted dorsally by the 7 cervical vertebrae, while in the back-lateral side there are strong muscular masses that welcome a set of organs and tissues.

The chest consists of the 12 thoracic vertebrae articulated with the ribs and the sternum to form the rib cage where there are intrinsic and extrinsic muscles and is delimited below by the diaphragm, which marks the border between chest and abdomen; The chest is articulated through the chest strap, formed by the scapula and collarbone, with the upper limbs.

Pelvic is composed of sacred joint and coccyx with the pelvic belt, formed by the bones of the hip, and is delimited below by a muscular-fascial device, the pelvic and skin diaphragm, the perineum, the seat of the end of the hip, urinary and digestive system and external genitalia.

The main functions of the trunk are:

  • transfer the force from the lower limbs to the pelvis and finally to the upper limbs;
  • perform floating-extension and tilt rotation movements;
  • the stabilization of the entire skeletal muscular system in both static and dynamic positions;
  • contains and protects the vital organs inside it.

For these reasons, it is important to take care of your trunk. Regularly check its alignment in both static and dynamic position, correcting preventative postural disorders. Thanks to the continuous technological progress and the constant improvement of the research, each TecnoBody product can evaluate, improve and train the trunk.
