Structure/FX change

How change can occur in structure & function

Why Change Occurs: Placebo effect, neural adaptation, strength, skill learning
Placebo Effect based on pt and clinician's expectations & clinicians competence. Occurs early and most likely not long-term
Neural Adaptation/Activation changes in coordination/learning during specific strength tasks. Pt making adaptation in doing things diff ways, not changes in the muscles themselves
Strength improvement in strength/muscle group. Happens @ 2 weeks. Needs regular maintenance.
Changes in strength needs 3 things to happen: overload, specificity, velocity
*Overload muscles ned to work harder than normal for increased strength to occur, use increased resistance.
*Specificity muscles get stronger in task which they are trained
*Velocity strength will be increased @ velocity its trained @- fast or slow, whichever is the goal.
