Date Created: 10/12/16
Concept 11 Range of motion (ROM​)- the full motion possible in a joint or a series of joints Ligaments​- Bands of tissue that connect bones. Unlike muscles and tendons, overstretching ligaments is not desirable. Tendons​- Fibrous bands of tissue that connect muscles to bones and facilitate movement of a joint. Laxity​-motion in a joint outside the normal plane for that joint, due to loose ligaments. Muscle-Tendon Unit (MTU)​- The skeletal and tendons that connect them to the bones. Stretching to improve flexibility is associated with increased length of the MTU Stiffne​ -elasticity in the MTU, best for beginners Hypermobility​-looseness or slackness in the joint and of the muscles and ligaments (soft tissues) surrounding the joint. Myofascial Trigger Points​-tight bands or knots in the muscle or fascia (a sheath of connective tissue that binds muscles and other tissues together). Trigger points often refer pain to another area of the body. Active Assistance​- assist to stretch from an active contraction of the opposing muscle. Passive Assistance​- stretch imposed on a muscle with the assistance of a force other than the opposing muscle. Methods of stretching 1. Static Stretch: Best for beginner's 2. Pre-Contraction Stretch: 3. Dynamic (Movement) Stretch Vocab. Cont. Reciprocal Inhibition​- Reflex relaxation in stretched muscle during contraction of the antagonist. Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF​)- stretching technique that incorporates muscle contraction prior to stretch. Ballistic Stretch​- bouncing or swinging to facilitate lengthening of the muscle-tendon unit. Stretch Tolerance​- greater stretch for the same pain level. Range of Motion (ROM) Exercises​- is when you are able to move.
