Supine Assisted Adjustments use what kind of hand position?

Bridged fist

2

With supine assisted adjustments patient is in what position?

Flextion

3

What is the tissue pull for supine assisted adjustments?

I-S

4

A non-bridged-flat on patients back is what kind of adjustment?

Supine Resisted adjustment

5

Using a fist for a supine resisted adjustment addresses what?

Flexion, extension, lateral flexion

6

supine resisted adjustment with an open hand addresses what?

Rotation, combined rotation and lateral flexion

7

Supine resisted adjustments us what kind of tissue pulls?

S-I

8

What are exceptions with patient position in supine resisted adjustments?

-Lower thoracic (lifting shoulders to flatten lordosis and create tension at contact)
-resisted flexion

9

Normal patient position in supine resisted adjustments?

extention

10

Combined motions

assisted or resisted

11

assisted combined motion

induce rotation and lateral flexion on same side (left rotation and left lateral flexion)

12

resisted combined motion

induce rotation and opposite side lateral flexion (left rotation and right lateral flexion)

13

inducing rotation and same side flexion, is what?

assisted combined motion

14

inducing rotation and opposite side lateral flexion, is what?

resisted combined motion

15

supine rib flexion (I-S) adjustments look like?

supine assisted rotation adjustments
-except contact is medial to rib angle, not on TP

16

supine rib extension (S-I) adjustments look like?

supine resisted rotation adjustments
-except contact is medial to rib angle, not on TP

17

a supine resisted rotation adjustment with a medial rib contact is what?

supine rib extension (S-I) adjustment

18

a supine assisted rotation adjustment with medial rib contact is what?

supine rib flexion (I-S) adjustment

19

Assisted maneuvers will do what to vertebra?

tend to glide the facet joints

20

Resisted maneuvers will do what to vertebra?

tend to gap the facet joint
