Transcript of Advanced Deep Tissue - Revision

Fibroblasts: Secrete both fibers and ground substance of the matrix (wandering)

Macrophages: Phagocytes that develop from Monocytes (wandering or fixed)

Plasma Cells: Antibody secreting cells that develop from B Lymphocytes (wandering)

Mast Cells: Produce histamine that help dilate small blood vessels in reaction to injury (wandering)

Adipocytes: Fat cells that store triglycerides, support, protect and insulate (fixed) Lets go over what you need to know... Advanced Deep Tissue Revision Consists of two basic elements:
Extra-cellular matrix What is connective Tissue? Connective tissue is a collective term for the majority of tissue that make up the body.
It comprises of:
and the deep fascia of the muscles

The "deep" fascia of the muscles comprises of 3 distinct layers.
Each of these fibrous layers provide support for the nerves and vessels (neurovascular bundles) allowing the muscle to maintain uniformity of muscle tension during contraction, maintaining elasticity of muscle, and permitting recoil to a resting length post stretch.

It is the merging of these fiberous layers at the end of muscles that form tendons, which then integrate in to attachment sites of the such as periosteum, or another tendon.

The mass of fasciae-enveloped contractile cells is called the belly of the muscle. The belly of the muscle shortens during contraction and it is the fascia that allows is to maintain it's shape and consistency. Thixotropy is the property of certain gels or fluids that are thick (viscous) under normal conditions, but flow (become thin, less viscous) over time when shaken, agitated, or otherwise stressed. They then take a fixed time to return to a more viscous state. What is Thixotrophy? How does that relate to Deep Tissue Massage? The thixotrophic effect can relate to how the ground substance is effected in the fascia. If slow continuous pressure and heat is applied to adhered muscle tissue there can be some thixotrophic effect to surrounding fasical tissue. There are many rare and interesting connective tissue diseases. The most common pathology of connective tissue that you will face in practice is Arthritis Connective Tissue Pathology Arthritis (from Greek arthro-, joint + -itis, inflammation; plural: arthritides) is a form of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints.[1]
There are over 100 different forms of arthritis.[2][3] The most common form, osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease), is a result of trauma to the joint, infection of the joint, or age. Other arthritis forms are rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and related autoimmune diseases. Septic arthritis is caused by joint infection. What is Arthritis? Different types of arthritis effect the body in different ways. Symptoms include
Joint stiffness
Hardening of the connective tissue (increase in collagen)
Pain inflammation of joints and adaptive shortening of the muscles. How does it effect connective tissue? LETS DO TECHNIQUE REVISION FOR THE UPPER BODY! Deep Tissue Massage. Range of Motion Testing
