... techniques are when you take the body towards the restrictive barrier
direct
... techniques are when you take the body away from the restriction toward position of ease
indirect
the following describes what:

a direct technique that usually involves lateral stretching, linear stretching, deep pressure, traction and/or separation of proximal and distal muscle ends while monitoring tissue response and muscle changes by palpation.
soft tissue technique
one of the proposed uses for soft tissue technique is to try and relax ... muscles
hypertonic
to improve local tissue nutrition, oxygenation, and removal of metabolic wastes and to enhance circulation to local myofascial structures you would use ...
soft tissue technique
to identify somatic dysfunction you can use ...
soft tissue techniques
soft tissue technique is also good for improving local and systemic ... responsiveness
immune
while doing soft tissue techniques, you should be feeling through ... by ...
layer
layer
what does the below statement describe:

proximal and distal ends of the myofascial structures being treated are longitudinally separated
tractional technique also called stretching
the statement below describes what:

a rhythmic, lateral stretching of a myofascial structure, in which proximal and distal ends are held stationary and the central portion of the structure is stretched like a bowstring.
kneading
the statement below describes what:

sustained deep pressure over a hypertonic myofascial structure
inhibition
Somatic dysfunction of the soft tissues (myofascial structures) of the body as characterized or inferred by ...
tissue texture changes
asymmetry
restriction of motion
tissue sensitivity or tenderness
what does this describe:

Soft Tissue treatments produce generalized “tonic” effects on patients and enhance general physical tone and level of well-being
tonic effect
what is a contraindication for soft tissue treatment
patient refusal
absence of somatic dysfunction
skin disorders
acute muscle strain
acute ligament strain
bone fracture
thrombosis/bleeding disorders
cancer
while you are treating the patient you are also ...

the functions of the lymphatic system:
1.
2.
3.
4.
1. Maintaining fluid balance
2. Purification and cleansing of tissues
3. Defense
4. Nutrition
Lymph flows through lymph channels is influenced by three factors:
1.
2.
3.
1. Interstitial fluid pressure-forces fluid into the lymph capillaries
2. Ionic Gradients- fluid goes toward higher concentrations
3. Intrinsic lymphatic pump-channels
Direct external pressure on the lymph channel ... the flow of lymph.
increases
diaphragm is an important external ... of the lymphatic system.
pump
there are 2 types of omt treatment for lymphatics:
1.
2.
1. remove impedance to lymphatic flow
2. augment and improve the flow of lymph
what does rib raising do:
reduces constriction of larger lymph vessels, while reducing sympathetic tone
what is this technique called:
pectoral traction
what is the name of this technique:
thoracic pump
absolute contraindications for lymphatic techniques
1.
2.
Anuresis if not on dialysis
Necrotizing fasciitis
