"burning, red hot file rasping the skin…glossy" RSD Civil War description
Presentation of RSD Burning, hot swelling, red. Inc or dec sensation, Inc Temp, Pain, Stiffness, Narrowed digits, Allodynia, GLOSSY HAIRLESS SKIN
RSD theory #1 Failure of normal sympathetic arc to shut down
RSD theory #2 Reverb signal to spinal INTERNUNCIAL POOL (connected spinal neuron pool for reflexes) w/ volleys of impulses up & down spine
RSD theory #3 Injury to peripheral n. w/ hypersensitivity to circulating NE, pressure, movement
RSD theory #4 Articular synapse causing short circuit of peripheral n.
RSD theory #5 Nocicpetor responses assoc. w/ TRAUMA = long term SENSITIZATION of dorsal horn, inc. firing results
RSD theory #6 Recessive gene predispositon to NEUROPATHIC PAIN (damaged nerve fibers send distorted signals)
RSD theory #7 Neurochemicals released at peripheral n. endings causing vasospasm, vasoedema, pain = inflammation
RSD theory #8 Dysfunctional opiate system
RSD theory #9 Immune factor causing nerve inflammation, dormant virus (like herpes zoster causes shingles)
Stage of RSD at which 50% will have permanent disability ATROPHIC III
Stage of RSD w/ HYPERPATHIA + rubor, soft edema ACUTE RSD - buring pain, HYPERPATHIA, rapid hair and nail growth, decreased sweating, inc temp and blood flow
ALLODYNIA painful (noxious) response to stimulus that is usually NON painful (innocuous) = DYSTROPHIC stage of RSD
Stage of RSD w/ BRAWNY edema and Preoccupation of protecting injured limb DYSTROPHIC RSD- ALLODYNIA Cyanotic, brawny edema, PROFUSE SWEATING, SLOW hair/nail growth, early Osteoporosis, Dec temp
HYPERPATHIA Abnormally exaggerated subjective response to PAINFUL stimulii = ACUTE RSD (opposite of allodynia, dystrophic rsd stage)
Stage of RSD of the FROZEN, USELESS limb ATROPHIC (stages I,II,III w/ III being permanent disability in 50%) - Chronic, persistent changes in skin/mm, Pericapsular fibrosis, osteoporosis, Atrophy
What is a definite char. of ATROPHIC RSD Atrophy
Tache cerebrale RSD: autonomic dysfunction = red lines (erythematous) persisting 15-30 sec. after blunt object stroke
THERMOGRAPHY RSD: shows heat distribution patterns, good for d/dx RSD
MD tx for RSD sympathectomy, pain block, modulate spinal cord pain area
CHIRO tx for RSD Mobilization, Analgesics (co-tx), Sympathetic block, passive ROM, manip, mm stim, maintain flex, strength, pain control, wet clothes
Why is exercise important for RSD Improves neuromuscular pattern, otherwise pt leaves extremity immoble >> neg cascade of disuse
Physiologic tests for RSD SSEP (to show elect potentials of nerve to brain), THERMOGRAPHY, emg, ncv, function test
RSD test which shows glove like hypothermia THERMOGRAPHY
Heat distribution patterns of thermography {3} Physiologic process, Vertebral subluxation, Autonomic nerve dysfunction
Thermography measures (2) 1. Pathoneurophysiology 2. Compare bilaterally 3. HYPO or HYPERthermia
ABNORMAL thermography finding greater than 1* C of change
Caused by INcreased sympathetic post-gang
HypERthermia is caused by DEcreased sympathetic activity - blocked alpha receptors cannot control heat so out of control
Pathologic thermography findings usually hypOthermic
Thermographies do NOT follow (2) peripheral nerve patterns nor dermatomes
Dermal skin MICRO circulation RSD: controlled by skin chemical mediators and sympathetic autonomics
How does diffuse regional hypOthermia occur? RSD: after acute injury, SNS hyperfunctions >>> continuous VASOSPASM >> hypOthermia
How can entire region become hypOthermic? RSD: 1 post gang fiber from cord can synapse w/ 100 post gangs at paravertebral chain gang to alter T* of entire region

Explain heart/liver/kidney PITTING edema PITTING edema: salt retention > water retention > water follows salt into tissues > edema

X axis on Yakolev time and homeostaXis = phyXiologic balance point of body (pH, dehydration, glucose, O2, core temp)
(+) y axis IMPROVED physical state = healing, adaptation, performance
[-] y axis fatigue, decreased performance, illness, injury
Multifactorial, protective mechanism of body FATIGUE - affects body systems differently
Yakolev model “S” curve to LEFT on X axis? IMPROVED physical state SOONER w/ accelerated recovery
Uses the body's natural rhythms to return body to BMR asap ACCELERATED recovery (using sleep, hydration, diet, circulation, respiration)
Overreaching Programmed increase in volume, intensity or frequency (10% rule) = GOOD
Overtraining BAD. NON-functional = fatigue that won't go away; can lead to overtraining syndrome.
FUNCTIONAL overREACHing GOOD! Training load paired w/ APPROPRIATE recovery. Ready to go again!
Describe overTRAINING syndrome
Overtraining pushes the Yakolev curve DOWN (solid red line)
DOWN curve on Yakolev means non functional overreaching that results in overtraining syndrome – NO RECOVERY time. Diminishing returns.
BOMPA's sx of overtraining (OT) mimics MVA concussion, depression (physio, psycho, immuno, biochem/hormonal crashes)
