Flashcards in PNF - Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Deck (17):
What is the term for when a muscle is at its shortest possible length?
What is the term for when a muscle is at its longest possible length?
Name the 2 terms for active inhibition of a muscle either by its own activity, or that of its antagonist?
A) RECIPROCAL INHIBITION
B) AUTOGENIC INHIBITION
How would you define reciprocal inhibition?
agonist contracts = antagonist inhibited
- or inversely -
antagonist contracts = agonist inhibited
How would you define autogenic inhibition?
FOLLOWING MM CONTRACTION, MM REMAINS IN RELAXED STATE FOR BRIEF TIME
(Influence of GTO)
What do golgi tendon organs work to protect muscle and mm attachments from?
When muscle contraction exceeds a certain critical value, there is a relaxation of the muscle via the GTO influence. This is knows as what? (3 (aka))
INVERSE STRETCH REFLEX
PNF ensures the muscle to be stretched is ___________ as possible.
PNF requires normal ______________ and voluntary control over agonist and antagonist muscle groups.
(paralysis and spasticity CI'd)
Is Contract-relax technique reciprocal or autogenic?
Is Hold-relax technique reciprocal or autogenic?
Is Agonist contraction reciprocal or autogenic?
Is Reciprocal inhibition reciprocal or autogenic?
Is Contract-Relax-Contract reciprocal or autogenic?
