1

What is Wolff's Law?

That changes in the form and function of a bone are followed by changes in its internal structure.

2

What is Hilton's Law?

A joint and its surrounding muscles ( and insertions) are all supplied by the same nerve trunk.

3

What is Head's Law?

When a painful stimulus is applied to a point of low sensitivity that is in close central connection with an area of higher sensitivity, the pain is felt at the point of higher sensitivity rather than the point where the stimulus is applied (this law allows for the understanding of referred pain from one area to another through close connections in the central nervous system/spinal cord)

4

What is Hooke's Law?

The stress within an elastic solid up to the elastic limit is proportional to the strain responsible for it

5

What is Arndt-Schultz's Law?

Weak stimuli activate physiological processes, whereas very strong stimuli inhibit physiological responses.

10

Identify the law:
Weak stimuli activate physiological processes, whereas very strong stimuli inhibit physiological responses.

Arndt-Schultz's Law

11

Based on Hooke's Law, an injury will occur if a muscle is stretched beyond its elastic limit/normal tension.

Elastic limit.

12

True or false:
The concept of referred pain (such as a heart attack pain going down the arm) is based on Wolff's Law.

False

13

True or false:
Under-stretching is not productive, and over-stretching can cause more damage.
This is based on Hooke's Law.

True
