MSK DISORDERS

1. Kinetic chain: model of human motion that analyzes & treats dysfunction along connected anatomic regions, recognizing dysfunction in one region can cause dysfunction in other linked regions during motion.

2. Biomechanical deficit: any deficiencies in ROM, flexibility, strength, endurance, or motor control.

3. Muscle imbalance: divergence from normal function of different muscle groups that work as agonists or antagonists to stabilize a body part or create motion.

4. Functional exercise: exercise movements that stimulate muscle groups to work in a way that they normally work during functional or athletic activities.
