Which muscle synergies (muscle groups) are primarily used in a Shoulder Press?
Deltoid, rotator cuff, trapezius
The name of the receptors surrounding a joint that respond to pressure, acceleration, and deceleration in the joint.
When assessing a client during a Single-leg Squat, from which vantage point should you view the client?
Altered reciprocal inhibition, synergistic dominance, and arthrokinetic dysfunction all lead to this.
A layer of connective tissue that is underneath the fascia, and surrounds the muscle.
The ability of the neuromuscular system to properly recruit muscles to produce force concentrically, reduce force eccentrically, and isometrically stabilize the entire kinetic chain in all three planes of motion.
The Davies test is contraindicated for which group of people?
