Classifications of function blockades
There are 5 stages of classification of functional blockades, as Stoddard A. (1979) said:
Zero stage – it is absence of any mobility, it comply to functional ankylosis and in such cases manual therapy is not using.
I stage – there is minimal mobility in joint “stir”. In functional blockades of I stage does not use manual technique. But you can use mobilization techniques and with its help turn functional blockade of I stage into functional blockade of II stage.
II stage — there is limitation of mobility in joint. It is treating using minimum force with the help of methods of manual techniques.
III stage – means there is normal mobility in joint. Manual therapy don’t use.
IV stage – there is increased mobility (hypermobility — instability). Treatment with the help of manual therapy methods is contraindicated.
The functional blockades (FB) in degrees of stiffness in joints
I degree – FB is soft. It is frequently appears in children and old people.
II degree – FB is soft with the reserve return to the standing position. It is frequently appears in women from 20 to 35 years old. Also there is a clear link with allergic diseases.
III degree – FB is medium hardness. It is frequently appears from 20 to 55 years old in women and men.
IV degree – FB is hard. It is frequently appears after 50 years old and in most cases connected with the sings of deforming spondylosis.
That is why, abnormal motor stereotype of the human causes developing of many human diseases during of whole life. It formulate because of next causes:
1. Genetic. Genetic features of human unlike to plants (Mendel’s experiments with fragrant peas) bravely passed through the generation.
2. Injures and microtrauma leads to tension of tonic muscles. Any microtrauma of skull, childbirth, special falling the child on his head, who begin to walk, leads to tissue of tonic muscles and blockade of atlanto – occipital joint.
3. Generally accepted lessons of physical exercises (especially in sport sections), that in modern way directed to training of phasic muscles without tonic and individual physiological curves of the spine.
4. Constant tension of tonic muscles with appearing active trigger zones according to movement segment of spinal column, sometimes in outlaying areas.
5. Appearing of functional limitation of mobility (FB) as In appropriate motor segments of spinal column, as in conjugate positions.
