Flashcards in Board Review notes Deck (23):
What is hysteresis ("stress strain")?
During the loading and unloading of connective tissue, the restoration of the final length of the tissue occurs at a rate and to an extent less than during deformation (loading).
What is creep?
the capacity of fascia and other tissues to lengthen when subjected to a constant tension load resulting in less resistance to a second load application
What part of the UG system has PNS innervation by vagus, and which by the pelvic splanchnic?
Kidneys and upper ureter = vagus
Lower ureter and bladder = pelvic
What is the PNS supply to the testes and ovaries?
Vagus (recall how they descend in development)
What are the SNS spinal levels that innervate: The stomach to the ligament of treitz?
What are the SNS spinal levels that innervate: the ligament of treitz to the splenic flexure?
What are the SNS spinal levels that innervate: Splenic flexure to the rectum
What are the 8 components of the plumb line?
1/ Posterior apex of coronal suture
2. External auditory meatus
3. Bodies of most cervical vertebrae
4. Shoulder joint
5. Bodies of lumbar vertebrae
6. Posterior to axis of hip joint
7. Anterior to axis of knee joint
8. Anterior to the lateral malleolus
What is the axis about which the sacrum rotates when the left foot is in the stance phase of walking, and the right is in the swing phase?
Left oblique axis
Which way does the lumbar spine side bend towards when the left foot is in the stance phase of walking?
When using s/cs, the closer you are to the midline in treating a tender point, which way do you move the affected body part?
more flexion / extension
When using s/cs, the farther you are to the midline in treating a tender point, which way do you move the affected body part?
more sidebending / rotation
What are the general steps of FPR?
-Place in neutral and add compressive force
What are the general steps of myofascial release?
-Move tissues to point of ease
-Hold until softening
What is the general "pathophysiology" behind chapman's points?
Increased SNS tone impairs lymphatic return, causing an area of congestion
Does the pain with CPs radiate?
Where is the chapman point for the eyes?
Where is the chapman point for the esophagus?
Ribs 2 and 3
Where is the chapman point for the stomach?
Between ribs 5-6 on the left
Where is the chapman point for the liver and gallbladder?
Where is the chapman point for the spleen?
between ribs 7-8 on the left
Where is the chapman point for the adrenals? (anterior and posterior)
-Anterior Point = 2 in. superior and 1 in. lateral to umbilicus
-Posterior Point = b/w SP and TP of T11 and T12
