what are these?
-spleen, tonsils, thymus, lymph nodes, etc.

organized lymph tissue
... perfuse most of the tissues of the body

capillaries flow into larger channels which eventually drain into the venous system via the ... duct or the ... duct
lymph channels

right lymphatic
what is the substance that leaks out of the arterial capillaries, into the interstitium and into the single-cell lymphatic vessels?
primary cells of lymph are ...
lymph flows through lymph channels are influenced by what 3 factors?
-interstitial fluid pressure
-ionic gradients
-intrinsic lymphatic pupm
excessive interstitial fluid increases interstitial pressure and collapses lymph capillaries resulting in ... and ...
edema also causes dilation of lymph ... causing the valves not to function and the intrinsic pump to shut down
OMT may exert its greatest influence on the ...
lymphatic system
direct external pressure on the lymph channel (increases or decreases) the flow of lymph
the ... is an important external pump of the lymphatic system
fascial torsions (twists) can directly (increase or decrease) lymphatic flow through the fascia?
rib raising reduces constriction of larger lymph vessels, while reducing ...
sympathetic tone
in which lymphatic pump technique do to lift the inferior border of the pectoralis muscles while the patient breathes?
pectoral traction
what are 2 absolute contraindications to lymphatic techniques?
-anuresis if not on dialysis (if kidneys have shut down)
-necrotizing fasciitis in area involved (localized infection)
Fred L. Mitchell defined muscle energy treatment as a form of osteopathic treatment in which the patient ... moves the body specifically directed by the physician from a precisely controlled ..., in a specific ..., and against a distinctly executed ...
muscle contraction requires both a ... (blood flow) and ... (neural stimulus) reaction
ischemia is the lack of ...
anemia is the lack of ...
blood cells
when i hear the word nociceptive, think of ...
altered blood flow therefore triggers a ... response signaling that a problem exists within the tissues and that there is a state of low-energy formation in the muscles
sufficient blood flow must be maintained in order to regenerate the ... necessary to break the actin-myosin ... so that muscle fiber movement may be continued
reduced ... will alter the metabolic support necessary for normal muscle movement
blood flow
"the rule of the ... is supreme"
in its resting (dead-without ATP) state, muscle fibers are ... and ...
the nerve terminal of muscle spindles is known as the .... ending
muscle spindles are responsible for the ... of the muscles
the function of the muscle spindle is to provide ... feedback for the movement, position and extension of muscles
during ... of the muscle, the muscle spindle becomes progressively silenced and the golgi tendon organ increases its firing rate
active contraction
during ... of the muscle, the muscle spindle increases its firing rate and the golgi tendon organ becomes slightly increased
what are receptors located within the laced network of collagen tissue fibers at the musculotendinous junctions of the muscles?
golgi tendon organs
when the golgi tendon is stimulated, this ... motor firing to this muscle and ... muscle firing to its antagonist muscle group
Joint capsule mechanoreceptors are normally more sensitive at the extremes of joint angle movement, in the presence of ... within the joint, and in the presence of increased fluid pressures
... are a component of the fusimotor system, the system by which the CNS controls muscle spindle sensitivity
gamma motoneurons
... regions in the muscle also have reduced gamma and alpha input
what type of muscle fibers?
-more mitochondria and blood capillaries
-more content of myoglobin in the sarcoplasm (carries additional available oxygen for use by the mito)
-red coloration
-function: postoral
-color: red
-metabolism: oxidative
-fatigability: slow
-spindle number: high
-reaction: shortening
slow twitch muscle fibers
what type of muscle fibers?
-metabolically and functionally designed for more ballistic activity such as power movements performed over a short duration of time
-function: phasic
-color: white
-metabolism: glycolytic
-fatigability: rapid
-spindle number: moderate
-reaction: weakening
fast twitch fibers
muscle contraction (is or is not) an all or none action?
is not
what is this?
-increase in the diameter of the muscle fibers along with increased sarcoplasm and metabolic supportive matrix. This is formed by the forceful activation of the muscle fibers against at least 75% of its maximal tension
what is this called?
-decrease in diameter of the muscle fibers with reduced strength, fiber size, and metabolic support
what is the most significant contributor to atrophy?
what is this?
-change in the tension (tautness) of a muscle without approximation of muscle origin and insertion
-the operator force equals the patient force
-this apparently resets the muscle proprioceptors as the tight muscle lengthens

-patient's activation of the antagonist muscle to the restricted muscle against the physician's counterforce is known as ...
-post-isometric relaxation
-reciprocal inhibition
isotonic contraction:
-...: contraction of muscle resulting in approximation of origin and insertion (getting closer)
-...: lengthening of the muscle during contraction (getting farther away, pull and stretch)
-these methods are commonly used to build muscle strength
what is this?
-contraction of a muscle against resistance while an external force lengthens the muscle.
-this method is thought to work through activation of the golgi receptor reflexes and is used to tear down adhesions in the tissues. this has the potential to cause injury in the tissues and is not commonly used
