The Median Plane.

Our Midline.

The median plane is the thinnest slice (plane) that splits the body into left and right sides. Also known as the mid-sagittal-plane it is our true midline for alignment and body balance.  A 2d shape when seen from the side, with a front and a back to the shape.  When viewed from the front or back the median plane is a thin line straight down our midline from head to pubic symphysis.  One leg lies either side of the median plane.

Straight down the middle. Our true midline.

A thin line when seen from the front or back.

A 2D shape from the side.

Median (mee-dee-an): Midpoint, middle.

Plane: A flat, two-dimensional (2D) surface.

The median plane, a 2 dimentional shape when seen from the side. The linea alba, nuchal ligament and supraspinous ligament all lie on the median plane.

Anatomical structures that lie on the median plane include:

The linea alba,

nuchal and supraspinous ligaments.

Closely associated with our Base-Line muscles, the linea alba is our primary reference for body alignment.

The nuchal and supraspinous ligaments should be free to align with the linea alba.   Something you feel using your sense of conscious proprioception.

The anterior longitudinal ligament is the longest structure on the median plane, running the entire length of the spine attaching to the anterior (front) of each vertebrae. Unimportant to the healing process, I mention it now only to be complete.

 OPTIMISING THE USE OF YOUR MUSCLES = BETTER HEALTH.

YOU MUST HEAL FROM YOUR BASE-LINE OUTWARDS.
