What are muscle energy techniques designed to improve?

Musculoskeletal function

Which term refers to the effect of reduced tone experienced by a muscle after brief periods following an isometric contraction?

Post-isometric relaxation (PIR)

What does reciprocal inhibition (RI) involve in muscle energy techniques?

Inhibition of the antagonist muscle

According to one premise, what happens to a muscle after it is contracted in muscle energy techniques?

It automatically relaxes for a brief, latent period

Which two fundamental neurophysiological principles account for the neuromuscular inhibition in muscle energy techniques?

Post-isometric relaxation and reciprocal inhibition

Study Notes

Muscle Energy Techniques

  • Designed to improve joint mobility, muscle strength, and neuromuscular control
  • Aim to restore proper joint alignment and reduce muscle tension

Muscle Tone

  • The term "autogenic inhibition" refers to the effect of reduced tone experienced by a muscle after brief periods following an isometric contraction

Reciprocal Inhibition

  • Involves the contraction of an antagonist muscle to inhibit the contraction of an agonist muscle
  • Process used to lengthen a muscle and improve joint range of motion

Muscle Contraction

  • After a muscle is contracted in muscle energy techniques, it will experience a brief period of relaxation or inhibition

Neuromuscular Inhibition

  • Two fundamental neurophysiological principles account for the neuromuscular inhibition in muscle energy techniques:
  • Reciprocal inhibition and autogenic inhibition

Test your knowledge of muscle energy techniques, a class of soft tissue manipulation methods designed to improve musculoskeletal function and reduce pain. Learn about post-isometric relaxation (PIR) and reciprocal inhibition (RI) in this informative quiz.
