Sample text

Lengthened muscles can also become painful and should not be stretched. For example, when a muscle is subjected to injurious tension by lifting a heavy object, it can become strained. If the muscle remains under continuous tension, it will become elongated and Concepto anD Princip[ea of Movement CHAPTER Two painful. When the postural alignment examination indicates a muscle is elongated, then strain, rather than shortness, is considered the likely cause of pain. Strain is a minor form of a tear in which the filaments of the muscle have been stretched or stressed beyond their physiologic limit resulting in disruption of the Z-lines to which the actin filaments attach (Figure 2-13).

The sleeping positions combined with a patient's structural characteristics can cause over-stretch weakness. A similar mechanism can also contribute to over-stretch weakness ofthe upper trapezius muscle. This condition can progress to painful muscle strain if not corrected immediately after the onset of the length change. A prolonged passive stretch exerted on a muscle, particularly under rest conditions, can be the precipitating factor in the development of this condition. The key factors that identify over-stretch weakness are: (1) weakness of the muscle that is evident throughout the range of motion, and (2) increased resting muscle length that is greater than its ideal anatomic length and is usually evident in the postural alignment examination.

Exaggerated posterior pelvic tilt. In the normal joint stabilization pattern, the muscles that counteract the effect on joints (which are to remain stable) contract before the prime mover (Position 6). If they fail to do so or do not generate enough tension, the pelvis will posteriorly tilt. ) O ical relevance In the first five responses during lmee flexion in the prone position, the pattern of motion can be explained best by the concept of the relative flexibility of structures, particularly when the lmee flexion is performed passively by the examiner.
