Unformatted text preview: r flexion 2. Frontal Plane a. Must have proper extensibility to allow for proper shoulder abduction 3. Transverse Plane a. Must have proper extensibility to allow for proper shoulder internal rotation B. Must be a multifaceted approach, integrating various flexibility techniques to achieve optimum soft- tissue extensibility in all planes of motion. C. To better understand flexibility training, we first need to review the kinetic chain, muscle imbalances and neuromuscular efficiency. II. Kinetic Chain Reaction Review A. The kinetic chain is comprised of the skeletal, nervous and muscular systems. - If one segment of the kinetic chain is misaligned and not functioning properly, predictable patterns of dysfunction develop. III. Muscle Imbalance 1. Altered Reciprocal Inhibition - Caused by a tight agonist, which inhibits its functional antagonist 2. Synergistic Dominance - Occurs when synergists take over function for a weak or inhibited prime mover 3. Arthrokinetic Dysfunction - Altered forces at the joint, resulting in abnormal joint movement and proprioception 4. Neuromuscular Efficiency - The ability of the nervous system to properly coordinate muscular action...
