PT Care test

Active exercise without any manual or mechanical assistance
Active resistive exercise against any maanual or mechanical resistance
Capsular patterrn indictes that a problem exists within that joint
Eccentric contraction lengthenin of a muscle as i develops tension and contracts to control motion-decelerates movement
Hypertrophy an incease in in cross-sectional size of a fiber cell
isokinetic exercise a form of active resistive exercise
passive exercise exerciseperformed on a person by manual or mechanical means; no voluntary muscle contraction occurs
PNF treatment that uses varous stimuli to affect the muscle or joint proprioceptors to facilltate or alter movement responses
Soft tissues tissues that lack bony or skeletal components; muscle, ligament, joint capsle, tendon,skin, and fascia
passive exercise preserves and maintins rangeof motion; minimizes contracture formation; minimizes adhesion formation; maintains mechanical elasticity of muscle; promotes and maintains loca circulation; promotes awareness of joint motion; evaluates joint integrity and mot

granulation any granular material on the surface of a tissue, membrane, or organ
induration quality of being hard; abnormal firmness of tissue with a definite margin
lymphedema functional overload of the lymphatic system in which lymph volume exceeds transport capabilities resulting in obstructed lymph flow
