Rood Approach:
Primary premise of this approach
Sensori stimuli effects motor response
Rood Approach:
how is the stimulus used for motor skill progression?
Stimulus is used with a sequence of positions and activities that go through a normal ontogenic motor development
Rood Approach:
What are the 4 basic assumptions?
1: Must have normal tone for normal MS movement
2: Movement occurs in a developmental sequences (tx follow stages that follow the cephalocaudal rule)
3: Motivation
4: Repetition
What are light work ms refered to as?
What are heavy work ms referred to as?
What do mobilizer ms consist of?
flexors and ADD
What do stabilizer ms consist of?
extensors and ABD
The cephalocaudal rule indicates that
Tx begins w/head to downward- segment by segment-
proximal to distal, to the sacral
So what's the order the ms are stimulated according to the cephalocaudal rule?
What are the 4 principles of treatment
1: Reflexes can be used
2: Sensory stimulus will elicit a response
3: MS groups have different duties
4: Start w/heavy ms integration before the light ms
Rood Approach:
what is the development stages?
1: Reciprocal interaction: while one ms contracts one relaxes (flex/ext)
2: Co-contraction: both ms on the side of the joint contract simulatneously. Allows stability like when reaching or holding something
3: "mobility on stability" the proximal ms move while the distal ms are fixed
4: Highest level of control: proximal ms are fixed while distal ms move
Rood Approach:
what are the ontogenic movement patterns?
1 supine withdrawal
2 roll over
3 pivot prone
4 neck co-contracion
5 all fours
6 static stand
7 walk
Rood Approach:
What are the specific techniques used in treatment?
Cutaneous stimulation: stimuli to skin
Proprieoception stimulation: stimuli to joint and ms (& vestibular, but adv for COTA need further training)
Rood Approach:
What are some CUTANEOUS stimuli?
Light touch (f)
*Brushing (beyond COTA qual)
*Icing (beyond COTA qual)
Rood Approach:
What are some PROPRIOCEPTIVE stimuli?
Heavy Jnt Compression (f)
Quick Stretch (f)
Tapping (f) NEVER on FLEXORS
Vibration (f) NEVER on FLEXORS, or the very young or very old
Neutral Warmth (i)
Manual Pressure (deep tendinous pressure) (i)
Light Jnt Compression (i)
Elongated (maintained)Stretch (i)
Olfactory and gustatory stimuli for f or i
*vestibular (beyond COTA qual)
