Cunningham Tech III

NYCC Tech III written exam

what is the foundation of NYCC's technique assessment? P.A.R.T.S.
which is true when performing an active ROM assessment? check for: QUALITY - QUANTITY - SYMMETRY - PAIN PROVOCATION (QQSP

NYCC model of chiropractic principle is DYNAMIC
What are the 2 components to chiropractic application? Analysis + Treatment
Joint play is done in what position? seated
the ENDPOINT of passive motion is end feel
Accessory Joint movements are INVOLUNTARY accessory to the crime, earrings you forgot to take off, a good looking man or woman on your arm...these are accessories that are practically involuntary
Accessory joint movement in NEUTRAL positon is evaluated by Joint PLAY (you play with your accessories, don't you? He would get bored if you didn't pay attention once in awhile - you should, however, remain Neutral).

2 parts of chiropractic technique analysis (evaluation) + adjustment (treatment)
motion segment a functional unit made up of two adjacent articulating surfaces and the connecting tissues binding them to each other
spinal motion segment two adjacent vertebrae, and the connecting tissues binding them to each other
subluxation a motion segment in which alignment, movement integrity, and physiological function are altered, although contact between joint surfaces remains intact
manipulable subluxation a subluxation in which altered alignment, movement and function can be improved by MANUAL THRUST PROCEDURES
subluxation complex a theoretical model of motion segment dysfunction (subluxation) which incorporates the complex interaction of pathological changes in nerve, muscle, ligamentous, vasculature and connective tissue
the lesion treated by chiropractors subluxation
4 treatment procedures utilized by chiros Mt.MMA:-manual therapy--mobilization-manipulation--adjustment-
on the motion spectrum, two bones fused can be referred to as total restriction
difference between increasing motion and decreasing motion increasing: hypermobility decreasing: restrictions needing adjustment
when evaluating the patient, 5 things: 1-history, 2-observation, 3-physical exam, 4-neuro evaluation, 5-chiropractic evaluation
3 questions about pain history: Location, Quality, Intensity on a scale
active vs. passive vs. resisted ROM's active-patient performs motion, passive-doc induces motion, resisted-pt performs but doc adds resistance
the amt and direction of joint or region movement can be called Osteokinematic motion (amount and direction)
assessing what with active ROM: quantity, quality, symmetry, pain provocation
cervical active ROM (AROM's) are: Flexion 60, Extension 70, Lateral Flexion 45, Rotation 90 60 flexion.70 extension.45 lateral flexion.90 rotation
a subluxation can also be called a joint dysfunction
goal of chiropractic evaluation determine the chief complaint and if any joint dysfunction/subluxuation needs treatment
evaluation chiro ideas open mind, scan first
components for physical scanning evaluation for joint dys/subluxation are: posture and gait, ROM, motion scan, pain scan
posture and gait is evaluated by activities of the musculoskeletal system
difference between pain and tenderness pain: present even when not touching patient
is pain specific to one joint? no
what's used to isolate, id and define the specific joint dysfunction and specific tissues involved? PARTS
PARTS stands for Pain, Asymmetry, Range of motion, Tone & texture, Special tests
motion palpation is a skill depends not only on psychomotor training but also understanding functions of anatomy, biomechanics, path mechanics of spine, pelvis and extremities
authors of text we use Bergmann and Peterson
Accessory joint movements are _________, and they represent the _______necessary for normal function involuntary joint play, give
an adjustment occurs in Paraphysiological space
annular fiber disruption with nuclear migration into the tear is known as what type of block intradiscal block
joint manipulation is done to increase hypo-mobility (low mobility)
joint manipulation is done in what direction direction of primary joint restriction
a restriction is a component of subluxation, not the subluxation itself? true
not every restriction needs adjusting? true
a restriction may or may not cause a malpostion? true
static model of subluxation based on what concept bone out of place
dynamic model of subluxation based on mobility of a MOTION SEGMENT
flexion restriction is also known as extension malpostion
