Sample text

I want my pectoralis major and subscapularis to catch the bone before it lands on my collagen. This is where the muscle spindle comes in. The role of the muscle spindle is to recognize the length of the muscle in which it is embedded and the physiological limit of the joint it crosses. 52–54 The classic example is the knee-jerk reflex. When the patellar tendon is tapped with a reflex hammer, a quick stretch is applied to the quadriceps muscle. Some of the various muscle 29 A Manual Therapist’s Guide to Movement spindles that are interspersed throughout the quadriceps are stretched, stimulating a reflex arc that results in a contraction of the quadriceps as a whole – the knee straightens.

In this lesson, we emphasized the sensorimotor skills of effort recognition and quality of control. He was able to use his fingers both to move his toes passively and to assess his degree of hypertonicity. He was able to contract his toe plantarflexors, and have either fingers or toes there as both a destination and a sounding board. How hard am I pressing, and how steady/controlled is that pressure? How does toe control compare to finger control? The ankle plantarflexors were overflow stimulated by the activation of the toe flexors, and a degree of reciprocal inhibition occurred with his anterior tibialis.

It is this sense of muscle effort that is of particular interest to us in stretching. Have you ever watched someone trying to stretch a muscle they are contracting at the same time? I see it all the time. Some people go too fast and stimulate a stretch reflex in the muscle they are trying to stretch. Some people try too hard and stretch too far, again stimulating a stretch reflex. Some people stretch into pain and stimulate an avoidance reflex. Some people anticipate pain moving into a certain direction, and will actively protect themselves.
