Sample text

Proprioception can be described as the process of delivering information to the central nervous system, as to the position and motion of the internal parts of the body. The information is derived from neural reporting stations (afferent receptors) in the muscles, the skin, other soft tissues and joints. Janda (1 996) states that the term 'proprioception' is now used: 'not quite correctly . . to describe the function of the entire afferent system' . Proprioception is more fully covered in Chapter 3 of this text.

Because of immobility, these new fiber connections will not have a stress load to guide them into a directional format and they will be laid down randomly. • Similar responses are observed in ligamentous as well as periarticular connective tissues. • Mobilization of the restricted tissues can reverse the effects of immobilization as long as this has not been for an excessive period. • If, due to injury, inflammatory processes occur as well as immobilization, a more serious evolution takes place, as inflammatory exudate triggers the process of contracture, resulting in shortening of connective tissue.

This is thought by some to be a process associated with trigger point evolution (Korr 1 976). Lewit ( 1 985) has shown that altered function can produce increased pain perception and that this is a far more common occurrence than pain resulting from direct compression of neural structures (which produces radicular pain). There is no need to explain pain by mechanical irritation of nervous system structures alone. It would be a peculiar conception of the nervous system (a system dealing with information) that would have it reacting, as a rule, not to stimulation of its receptors but to mechanical damage to its own structures.
