Flashcards in definition and classification of manual therapies Deck (24):
1

manual therapy

-therapeutic application of manual force
-procedures w/r hands directly contact body to treat articulations and/or soft t.

2

spinal manual (manipulative) therapy

therapeutic application of manual force
-procedures w/r hands directly contact body to treat articulations and/or soft t. of the spine

3

joint manipulation

manual procedure involves directed thrust to move joint past the physiological ROM w/out exceeding anatomical limit

4

difference b/w manual therapy and spinal manual therapy?

spinal manual therapy will incorporate joint manipulation

5

limitations to the term joint manipulation

-limits manipulation to thrust procedures
-limits joint manipulation to moving joint past physiologic range

6

substitute joint thrust manipulation when it is associated with...

high velocity low amplitude thrust (HVLA)

7

common procedures to influence joint and neurophysiological function

chiropractic therapeutic procedures that:
utilize controlled force, leverage, direction,amplitude and velocity
which are directed at joints or anatomical regions

8

limitations of term, adjustmnet

-covers wide range of manual therapy procedures (mobilization, massage, etc.)
- not limited to joints

9

chiropractic adjustment

specific form of long and short-lever techniques w/ specific contacts.
characterized as dynamic thrust of controlled velocity, amplitude and direction

10

chiropractic adjustment features

-thrust (ballistic force
-applied to joint

11

limitation of term, chiropractic adjustments

-to limiting
-number of chiro. procedures not classified as adjustments (limit reimbursement)

12

Classification of adjustments

-manual vs instrument
-HVLA
-leverage (direct, semidirct, indirect)
-patient position,anatomical reign, contact points

13

mobilization

movement applied singularly or repetitively w/in or at physiological rang of joint motion, w/out imparting thrust/impulse, with goal of restoring joint mobility.

14

can mobilization produce cavitation?

yes, deep mobilization into paraphysiologic space can produce a cavitation

15

manipulation applied w/in physiologic range

movement w/in joints anatomical limit

16

manipulation applied w/in physiologic range of joint motion characteristics

non-thrust passive joint manipulation of graded force

17

motion assisted adjustments (or mobilization)

use mechanical motorized table, for prepositioning/counter resistance during app. of adjustment/mobilization
(any adjusting method)

18

cox technique

flexion distraction adjustment

19

Mckenzie tequnique

lumbar ROM exercise and mobilization (extension)

20

muscle energy techniques

incorporates patients muscular effort in application procedure.

21

soft t. manipulative procedures

hands used to massage, traction, mobilize, manipulate or stimulate soft t. of the body

22

massage

-effleurage
-petrissage
-friction

23

point pressure

-nimmo
-ischemic compression
-acupressure

24

functional techniques

---strain/conterstrain
-myofascial release
-ART/pin and stretch
