Example text

We will now flesh out these schematics a little with some clinical examples illustrating the advantages of reciprocal movements. Influencing Motor Behavior Fig. 27 Representation of change in relationship to gravity – muscle ‘on top’ does lengthening and shortening contractions to control the ring. 10 Coordinating the antagonists Hypermobilities – agonist doesn’t stop contracting and antagonist doesn’t kick in Hypomobilities – agonist doesn’t finish the job and antagonist kicks in too soon Co-contractions – antagonist never fully inhibited when agonist working Stretch and strengthen simultaneously – and in pattern-specific and functionally relevant ways while you are at it Reciprocity examples When prescribing exercises for muscle or structural imbalances, the approach most often taken is the obvious and logical one: stretch the tight muscle and strengthen the weak one.

We then gradually apply constraints to place ever more demand on the CNS to inhibit the contraction of those muscles that are getting in the way. This also gradually imposes a demand on the collagen component. We then have the person use that specific pattern, applied to a specific function and used commonly in daily activities, to gradually stimulate connective tissue remodeling. In physical therapy school, we called this the SAID Principle: Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demand. We impose a functional demand (a constraint) on the muscle spindle to lengthen and on the tight intra- and extraarticular fascia to remodel, hydrate and allow more movement.

In standing, he habitually rocked his weight back on to his heels, creating the balance reaction of dorsiflexion. Stand up and try it yourself right now – rock your weight back on your heels and notice the reaction in your toes and anterior tibialis tendon. His sitting organization was similar. He rolled his pelvis back on the seat, which necessitated the chronic contraction of his iliopsoas to hold him up. The synergistic relationships of the iliopsoas to the ankle and toe dorsiflexors through association with the stepping or withdrawal function was enough to create dorsiflexor hypertonus in this posture as well.
