Flashcards in Info From Practice Problems Deck (30)
This is the type of contraction in MET
No net movement between origin and insertion, the physician is applying an equal force to the patient contracting their muscle
Think of your biceps brachii being used to hold a weight. They aren’t moving, just holding it there in mid air.
Isotonic contraction with concentric motion
Isotonic Concentric contraction
Movement of a muscle with a decrease in origin and insertion distance (they’re coming closer together).
Same example as before, now you;re contracting your biceps brachii and moving the weight up to you.
Curls for the girls
Isotonic contraction with eccentric movement
Isotonic Eccentric Contraction
Movement of a muscle with a separation of origin and insertion (they’re getting further apart).
Same example, now you’re lowering the weight down because you just did 100 and all the ladies are like omg he’s so vascular
This is a subcatagory of Eccentric movement
Same example, except now you’re going to failure with a heavy weight and the weight of the weights overcomes your biceps brachii and you drop them. Whoops, luckily no one saw that.
Think of the physician overpowering the contraction of the patient. This type of contraction is only performed by an outside force on the patient, and THERE IS A SEPARATION OF ORIGIN AND INSERTION
When were DO’s accepted as equal to MD’s
The pressure that is applied to ST is __________ than MFR
ART is well tolerated in what patient populations?
Both MET and ART are what?
Direct techniques (engage the barrier)
When using MET, explain what happens in a broad term
1. Physician engages the barrier
2. Pt. Pushes or pulls in the direction fo ease of motion (in the direction of the SD)
3. Hold for whatever, release, then re-engage
What is performed with valgus testing
What is performed with a varus stress test
Tender point vs trigger point
Tender point = palpation results in localized pain only
Trigger point = palpation results in referred pain away from site
What are the movements for LE supination
Add Plants In your Soup
Adduction, plantarflex, inversion
What is a zink pattern
The common compensatory pattern
What is the N. For GTO
MET isometric relaxation inhibits what neuron
Alpha motor neuron
Elevating the scapula causes what
Abduction and inferior glide of SC joint
Depressing the scapula causes what
Adduction and superior glide of the SC joint
Increasing the carrying angle means what
Decreasing the carrying angle means what
ART technique in reference to barriers
Through restrictive barrier to anatomical barrier
Cephalad vs cauded hand
The cephalad hand is just closer to the patient’s head
What kind of stretch is used in forward bending supine
What kind of stretch is used in contralateral traction
What kind of stretch is used in thoracic prone pressure
What kind of stretch is used in prone pressure with counterpressure
What kind of stretch is used in lower thoracic, under the shoulder, lateral recumbent
What kind of stretch is used in prone pressure lumbar
Stretch with prone pressure with counter leverage
