Axial rotation of the atlas is thus not a pure movement; it is coupled with a substantial degree of extension or in some cases, flexion. The coupling arises because of the passive behavior of the atlas under axial loads from the head; whether it flexes or extends during axial rotation depends on the shape of the atlantoaxial joints and the exact orientation of any longitudinal forces acting through the atlas from the head. Another approach to studying the range of axial rotation of the atlas has been to use computed tomographic (CT) scanning.

The superior motion of the inferior articular processes follows the curve of this convexity, and the result is a superoanterior glide. Thus the arthrokinematic motion of the joint surfaces supports the osteokinematic motion of the vertebrae, anterior translation being coupled with forward sagittal rotation. The anterior rotation of the neck of the rib results in a superior glide of the tubercle at the costotransverse joint (Figure 3-3). " the superior glide of the tubercle results in an anterior rotation of the neck of the rib.
