1

True or false:
The appropriate amount of duration of pressure for an individual is determined by multiplying bodyweight by hides and dividing by age.

False.
This is an unbelievably stupid fucking question.

2

True or false:
When doing massage, you can perform each technique a maximum of three times.

False.
This is another unbelievably stupid fucking question.

3

Which technique applies deep, fast frictions to the muscle and causes an acute inflammatory response?

Cross fibre friction

4

Which technique stimulates the production of collagen that helps heal the tendons or ligaments?

Cross fibre massage.

5

True or false:
With stripping, you move along the muscle fibres and this allows the muscle to relax. The relaxation is mediated through GTO reflex.

False

6

True or false:
Tissue approximation is primarily used to relax the muscle

True

7

Which techniques can relax the muscle, and therefore, can be performed first to treat an injured muscle?

Tissue approximation, origin and insertion work.

8

List the four techniques commonly used to treat triggerpoints.

Ischemic pressure, pumping, compression, dry needling?.

9

True or false:
When you apply deep, firm, static pressure to the trigger point, you usually hold for 30 seconds.

True

10

Which two techniques slightly stretch the muscle, stimulates the release of histamine, and bring blood into the muscle?

Stripping and cross fibre massage.

11

In the larks position, the muscle attachments are moved far apart/closer together by moving the next distal limb segment.

Closer together

12

True or false:
Massaging in the lax position causes the muscles to become soft and pliable. Therefore, in the lax position, the massage therapist can penetrate into deeper muscles.

True

13

When we put gastrocnemius in the lax position, we can penetrate into which muscle?

Soleus

14

What is the lax position for gastrocnemius?

Knee flexion and plantar flexion

15

What is the lax position for biceps brachii?

Elbow flexion

16

How do you perform joint to play exercise?

Move or manipulate a joint to move in a way that the muscles cannot.

17

What is the purpose of using joint play exercises?

Mobilize joints, cause muscle relaxation, increased joint mobility by increasing range of motion, promote synovial fluid circulation.

18

Muscle mobilization works on only few muscles. The muscles it does work on all have the same basic anatomy. What are the two characteristics of the muscles?

Muscles are long and have no attachment sites between the specific origin & insertion site.

19

Which muscles is it possible to perform muscle mobilization?

Gastrocnemius and rectus femoris

20

Which techniques and causing inflammation response and the increased blood flow to a muscle?

Muscle stripping, cross fibre friction, and cross fibre massage.
