The mediolateral axis (also called bilateral, frontal, frontal-horizontal, frontal-transverse, and transverse) passes horizontally side-to-side and is perpendicular to the sagittal plane. The anteroposterior axis (also called sagittal, sagittal-horizontal, and sagittaltransverse) runs horizontally from front to back and is perpendicular to the frontal plane of motion. The superoinferior axis (also called frontal-sagittal, longitudinal, and vertical) passes up and down and is perpendicular to the transverse plane.

This abnormal motion (as measured kinematically) is likely associated with abnormal forces acting upon that structure (kinetics), leading to further motion abnormality (Oatis, 2004). In addition, abnormal motion at one joint may cause abnormal force application at another joint structure. For example, abnormal hip motion may lead to pain and dysfunction of the knee and ankle (Oatis, 2004). Physical therapists must be familiar with biomechanical principles to properly recognize and diagnose the underlying cause or causes of disordered movement (evaluation).

They understand that performers need feedback relevant to the skill, delivered at the right time. They know that to perform successfully, players need to pay attention to relevant stimuli while ignoring irrelevant information. Finally, they understand that not all practice is good practice. Motor learning principles help coaches and teachers to minimize the failure inherent in learning and refining motor skills and maximize the potential of each person. Motor learning is major factor in any of the skills that we have used as examples (playing soccer, swimming, skateboarding, and walking).
