O Exam 2

notes resist, aerobic, jt mob, sx, gait, arthritis

slow twitch (ST) type I, red oxidative, large numerous mitochondria, triglycerides, enzymes for aerobic work, low myosin ATPase & glycolytic activity, lower calcium handling ability, shorter speed, good for endurance activities
fast twitch (FT) type II, white glycolytic, anaerobic, contract at a higher speed than type I fibers, high levels of myosin, ATPase provides energy for speed of contract & tension, low myoglobin content, few mitochondria, 3 subtypes
3 elements of mm performance strength, power & endurance
overload principle resistance applied must be great enough to at least briefly exceed the mm capacity- can be applied to both strength & endurance exercise
reversibility principle within a week or 2 "detraining" begins
progression principle intensity of the program must become progressively greater to continue making gains
signs of fatigue pain/cramping, trembling, movement slows, substitution, jerky movements
general strength training recommendations for elderly physician approval, close supervision initially, monitor vital signs, low resistance, low repetitions initially, progress by increasing reps, then by small amts of resist, avoid high resist to decrease stress on joints, train 2 or 3x/week w/48-hr rest int
neural adaptations-increased motor recruit-skeletal mm adaptations hypertrophy (sarcameres & mm cells get bigger, increase water & vascular content & proteins-actin & myosin-) hyperplasia -increased capillary density, increases in bone, ligament & tendon strength, specific decrease in osteoporosis
DeLorme progressive resistance exercise (PRE) 3 sets of 10 reps (10 rep max), arbitrary increase in resistance each week
Oxford program establishes the individual's 10 RM for the first set, moving to 75% of the 10 RM for the second set, and ending w/50% of the 10 RM for the 3rd set (10 reps ea)
Knight (DAPRE) four sets with variable reps & varying wts
if mm endurance is goal then... sets should increase, reps should increase, and resistance should decrease
exercise parameters- order after warm up, large before small
mm setting exercises low level isometric
stabilization exercises example: wall squat
multiple-angle isometrics otherwise mm would only build strength in one spot
isometric exercise protocol-rule of tens 10-second contractions for 10 repetitions with a 10 sec rest in between, gradually developing tension for 2 sec, maintaining a maximal contraction for 6 sec, then gradually decreasing tension for 2 secs
PRE's-progressive resistive exercise originally termed for Delorne's 1 RM with formula used to increase wts & reps-now a gen term for progression of wt & reps w/exercises
max 02 Consumption clinical measurement of body's ability to efficiently use oxygen during higher intensity activity (a measure of fitness) this imporoves when you exercise regularly
ATP produces energy by both aerobic & anaerobic pathways & is possible to improve the efficiency of both w/exercise
sustained activity, moderate intensity, longer duration more likely to be aerobic
intermittant activity, short duration, high intensity more likely to be anaerobic
phosphagen or ATP-PC anaerobic system used during brief bursts of activity lasting periods of 30 seconds
glycolytic system anaerobic for 30-90 sec bouts of activity that are relatively high intensity
Type I fibers slow twitch-are selectively recruited during low intensity activity
Type II B fibers fast twitch- selectively recruited during activities that involve power (factor of speed & force)
which part of BP increases in response to aerobic exercise? systolic- unsafe if goes over 170
children 6-17 should exercise 60 min of moderate to vigorous daily exercise
adults 18-65 should exercise 30 min of moderate to vigorous exercise 3-5 days weekly
older adults 65 and older 30 min of moderate or 20 min vigorous exercise 3-5 days weekly

manipulation thrust techniques-high velocity at end ROM
mobilization non thrust techniques
effects of joint mob helps move synovial fluid, maintain extensibilty & tensile strength of articular & periarticular tissues, provides sensory input for proprioceptive feedback
osteokinematics refers to physiological way bony surfaces move on each other-include flex, abd, ext & rot. under volitional control. aka cardinal plane motions
arthrokinematics refer to small mvmts at the bony interfaces (joints) and not under volitional control. aka accessory motions and include glide, spin & roll
capsular pattern predictable limitations that occur with capsular tightness
closed packed position the point where joint is highly congruent, ligaments are taut, joint is well stabilized and accessory motions are minimized
knee... loose-25 degree flex, closed packed- ext & lat rot, capsular pattern-loss of both flex & ext
glenohumeral loose-55 degree abd & 30 degree horizontal ADD, closed- ABD & lat rot, capsular pattern-ER, abd & IR limited

Oscillations Grade 1 or 2 1-3 a second or 60-180 a minute. applied for 20 to 60 sec only 4 or 5x. treat daily for pn
Grade III large amplitude oscillation at mid to end range
Grade IV small amplitude motion applied at end range
Grade V high velocity small amplitude thrust applied at end range

mod protection phase after sx progression of activity & promotion of independence. pt often returns to work & may still have some restrictions. expect will come out of immobilizer/brace. progress AROM to stretching & begin resistive ex per protocol. often lasts into 2nd postop month
therapy interventions in mod protection phase after sx progression to cane or dc of AD, dc of isometrics & begin closed chain strengthening, ROM, scar massage & stretching to increase ROM. pt may see PTA only weekly for progression of program
min protection/return to function phase after sx pt should not have restrictions & should be painfree for most part. operated jt should be stable. pt should be returned to 80% of normal activity. goal should be to improve strength & ROM to non-operated side levels. extends into 3rd post op month
therapy interventions in min protection phase after sx high level balance & stability exercises, progress patient to physical fitness level & teach pt stretching & strengthening at max potential. ed pt to prevent overuse.
