Quiz: “Functional Range Release” – the radio has been won…Congratulations to Dr. Shayne Baylis of Ottawa!

September 16, 2010


Remember that you must be currently registered for either an F.A.P.™ or F.R.™ seminar to be eligible to win.  The first person to submit a correct answer key to, along with their name, and the seminar date that they are registered for wins !!!! ******Please title your email “F.R. Quiz.” Your prize will be given to you on the first day of the seminar.  GOOD LUCK!!!!!!

1.  The increased available ROM attained post isometric contraction can be attributed to:

a.  Structural changes within the muscle

b.  Decreased gamma motor tone

c.  Decreased contraction of the muscle tissue

d.  Fatigue

2.  What is the main ‘target tissue’ in the Functional Range Release™ soft tissue management system?

a.  Skeletal Muscle

b.  Smooth Muscle

c.  Fascia

d.  Vasculature

3.  Magnusson et al. (1996) found that the increased ROM achieved by stretching lasted ___________ even if the person warmed up prior to the stretch and continued to exercise.

a.  <30 min

b.  30min-1hr

c.  1-2 hr’s

d.  Permanent change

4.  In order for the process of thixotrophy to occur the period that the tissue must remain under load is _________?  This explains why current soft tissue technique applications will fail to produce sustained change in fascia.

a.  5-10 seconds

b.  10-20 seconds

c.  30sec-1min

d. >2 min

5.  The F.R. system treats soft tissues at what range?

a.  The entire range

b.  The first half of the movement

c.  The second half of the movement

d.  Between the last 10 degrees and the end range

6.  The ability to change the appearance, and function of fibroblasts (including the way in which they produce and deposit collagen) via the application of sustained soft tissue loads is accomplished by this process:

a.  Piezoelectric effect

b.  Thixotrophy effect

c.  Tension effect

d.  Creep

7.  The works of Yahia et al found an abundance of ruffini organs in fascia.  These organs respond to __________ term pressure application, which results in a _________ of sympathetic tone.  This can in tern affect ___________ muscle that has also been found to be present in fascia.

a.  Short, lowering, skeletal

b.  Long, lowering, smooth

c.  Short, heightening, smooth

d.  Long, heightening, skeletal

8.  The studies performed on PNF stretching techniques demonstrated that following the contraction phase, when the patient is prompted to ‘relax’, muscle EMG readings:

a.  Increase

b.  Decrease

c.  Remain unchanged

d.  None of the above

9.  How does ‘P.A.I.L’s’ differ from other popular stretching techniques?

a.  P.A.I.L’s emphasizes strengthening the outer ranges of motion in order to make a particular range ‘functional’

b.  P.A.I.L’s technique improves flexibility more rapidly by teaching the body how to control the newly acquired range

c.  P.A.I.L’s is utilized as an exercise system on its own, but also as a means to allows soft tissue practitioners to more extensively release areas of fascial tension

d.  By using P.A.I.L’s one can simultaneously release tissue initiating the rehabilitation process (decreasing muscular inhibition, increase strength, etc.)

e.  All of the above

10.  Not only does the F.R. system™ consist of advanced fascial release and rehabilitative techniques, it also utilizes unique and effective assessment protocols, which consist of ___________ & _____________.

a.  Functional Anatomic Palpation Systems & static muscle palpation

b.  Orthopedic testing & Tissue Tension Technique

c.  Functional Anatomic Palpation Systems & Tissue Tension Technique

d.  Dynamic muscle palpation & motion palpation

11.  True or False (BTW …. the answer is TRUE)

By attending F.R. seminars™ you WILL receive the status of a CERTIFIED F.R.™ Practitioner, but you WON’T have to waste THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of dollars on unnecessary re-certification courses!!!!
