Sample text

We rarely intend to weightbear through our glenohumeral joints, but may do so when getting up from the floor (transitional movements). We rarely intend to side-bend our torso, but may need to bend so as not to fall (balance). We rarely intend to move our ribs or contract our intercostals, but always have a strong desire to breathe (vegetative). As newborn infants, we can’t do much. Although there are infant reflexes present, intentional movement is not apparent very early on. As we develop, we learn to coordinate our eyes to see binocularly and to associate that desire to see with turning our heads.

Muscle B then becomes the agonist and contracts to pull the ring to the right on the page, while Muscle A is now antagonistic and needs to be inhibited and lengthened to accommodate the movement in this direction (Fig. 25). This is how things should work. The antagonists work cooperatively in this schematic to move the bone fully within its physiological limits, but not beyond it. Let’s say now that Muscle A really prefers the on-switch to the off-switch, and it doesn’t stop contracting when the disc nears the post.

12 Use lengthened hamstrings and other hip extensors to constrain pelvic anterior tilt – funnel extension movement to thoracic area. supine. In general, it is these and similar transitional movements, other developmentally based movements and everyday movements of reaching, looking and walking, that are both our information delivery systems and our methods for stretching and strengthening individual muscles. Consider for a moment why we move, why we tell our muscles to move our bones. We use our muscles mainly to balance ourselves in a gravity field, to orient all five exteroceptors, especially our eyes, to our surroundings, to locomote, to make transitional movements, to grasp and manipulate, to communicate/express, and for vegetative purposes.
