1

INR, ST, MET, and some MFR are all wha type of techniques

direct techniques

2

Still and some MFR are what type of techniques are

combination of direct and indirect

3

INT, BLT, LAS, FPR and some MFR are all what kind of techniques

indirect

4

the _____ provide proprioceptive information that guides the muscle responses for positioning the joint, and the ligaments themselves guide the motion of the articualr component

ligaments

5

in BLT, all the treatment positions take place at

shifted neutral

6

indications of BLT

somatic dysfunctions of an articular basis
somatic dysfunction of a mysofascial basis
areas of lymphatic congestion or local edema

7

relative contraindications of BLT

fracture, dislocation, or gross instability in area to be treated
malignancy, infection, or severe osteoporosis in area to be treated

8

object of this treatment is to balance the articular surfaces or tissues in the directions of physiologic motion common to that articulation

BLT

9

During BLT, it is common to use an activating source such as

respiration - a respiratory phase that enhances ease it utilized until air hunger is achieved

10

a system of indirect myofascial release treatment. the component region of the body is placed into a neutral position, diminishing tissue and joint tension in all planes and an activating force (compression or torsion) is added

Facilitated positional release

11

advantages of FPR include

easily applied, effective, and time efficient
good patient satisfaction - patients often report immediate relief of tension/tenderness and restoration of function
Thorough: can repeat application prn

12

indications of FPR

somatic dysfunction in virtually all tissues of the body, including:
cranium, spine, sacrum, pelvis, limbs, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and viscera

13

contraindications to FPR

not advisable across recent wounds (surgical or otherwise) or fractures less than 6 weeks old

14

somatic dysfunction is initiated or maintained by increased activity in the _____ motor neurons of the muscles of the particular segment

gamma

15

gamma motor system stimulates muscle spindles in somatic dysfunction, increasing _____ in that muscle and altering _______ ______

increasing tension
altering neutral position

16

positioning of muscle in neutral position results in:
Inverse spindle output, which eliminates the afferent excitatory input to the spinal cord through the Group __ and ___ fibers | unloads the joint, which enables a rapid response to 3-plane therapeutic position

group 1a and II fibers

17

before applying the activating force of FPR, it is necessary to

neutralize the sagittal plane curves (lordosis/kyphosis)

18

stills position starts in ______ ____ and ends at

shifted neutral and ends at anatomical barrier (through RB)

19

advantages to stills technique

easily applied, effective and time efficient
good patient satisfaction (immediate relief/restoratino of function)
Thorough - time efficient so you can treat again

20

indications for stills

somatic dysfucntion in veritually all tissues of the body including: cranium, spine, sacrum, pelvis, limbs, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and viscera

21

contraindications for stills

not advisable across recent wounds (surgical or otherwise) or fractures less than 6 weeks old

22

initial treatment for stills

position of ease

23

before moving through the restrictive barrier in stills, it is necessary to

add a localizing force < 5lb compression/traction
