Sample text

Also, uncontrolled or intentionally delivered pain from direct therapeutic interventions may entrench and spread somatic dysfunction to other areas of the body, affecting strength, range of motion, and functional movement patterns. If PRT is applied to tissue lesions during this phase of healing, perfusion should improve to deliver critical blood flow to facilitate fibroplasia and tissue nourishment. Moreover, if blood flow is adequate, the primary culprit of somatic dysfunction, ACh, will be marginalized.

The MCT adds to previous Positional Release Therapy Research and Theory models of somatic dysfunction through its attention on the influence of the ATP energy crisis on ATP hydrolysis and filament coupling. Under homeostatic conditions, thick myosin protein filaments mechanically couple and uncouple with thin actin protein filaments to produce muscular contraction (Matthews 1981). As described by Vandenboom (2004), the regulation of the mechanical coupling process is driven by the conversion of chemical energy to mechanical energy from the following process: During the excitation/contraction coupling (ECC) process, calcium (Ca2+) ions released from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) bind to troponin C (TnC) to activate the thin filament and allow myosin to interact with actin.

There has been considerable speculation and debate to date as to why and how lesions develop, as well as why they often persist, producing a multitude of theories and promising research to answer these questions. 20 Integrated Hypothesis Theory Positional release therapy’s ability to reduce somatic dysfunction has been thought to result primarily from the reduction of aberrant neural activity and the mediation of inflammation and circulation through manipulation of the somatic nervous system. Some of the earliest theories of somatic dysfunction, such as Korr’s proprioceptive theory (1975), focused on the muscle spindle as a primary culprit.
