1

myofascial release

system of diagnosis/treatment which engages continual palpatory feedback to achieve release of myofacial tissues

2

direct MFR

restr. barrier engaged fro dysfunctional myofascial tissues, constant force until tissue release occurs

3

indirect MFR

postion of ease engaged for the dysfunctuional myofacisal tissues, guided alonf the path of least resitance untiil free movement

4

combined MFR

treatment whereby direct/indirect barriers are simultaneously engaged (more advanced technique)

5

what is embryo origin of fascia?

mesoderm

6

name 6 functions of fascia

packaging, proteection, posture, passageways, homeostasis, fasical continuity

7

hookes law

stresses/strain directly prop. to force applied (stretch/compression/etc) provided the bodies limit of elasticiy is not exceeded.

the object will return to original shape/size upon removal of the load

8

newtons 3rd law

every action = equal but opposite reaction

9

davis law

eery chabe in the form of the soft tissue, or in its function alone, is followed by certain definite changes in internal architecture and external conformations

10

contractility of muscle and fascia

ability to actively create tension b/w an origin and insertion

11

viscosity

capability of solid to conitunally yield under stress with a measureable rate of deformation.

12

stress

change equilinruim of the body by reaction of the body to the stress

13

strain

change in shape by a body when acted on by na external force

14

relaxation

ablillity to reduce tension b/w origin and insertion

15

viscoelastic change

stress is not only a funciton of strain, but also strain rate = speed at which a load (strain) is applied will affect the amount of stress in tissue

16

creep

continual stress with gradual increase of elongation over time and loss of eleasticity b/c of it

17

hysteresis

conn. tissue repsonce to loading and unloading where restoration of final length of tissue occurs at a rate/extent less than during deformation (loading) representing energy loss in conn. tissue
