5 component model aka. Faye Model of VSC
Terms in this set (29)
Lenard Faye who is he?
-changed VSC to dynamic model versus static
-1967 he published this model
-Currently still in practice in LA, California
4 Basic movements of spinal segment
2. Right or Left lateral flexion,
3. Anterior flexion,
4. Posterior extension,
5. Long axis distention aka, distraction
memory trick for remembering the 5 components of VSC?
Nutritious Kids Make Happy Poops
abnormal nervous system function
abnormal motion or position of vertebra
abnormal muscle function
abnormal soft tissue function
abnormal function of the spine and body
1. Biomechanical insult to nerve tissue is proposed to cause neural dsyfunction in three forms individual or combination, &
2. Nerve transmission always faster moving forward than backwards
Biomechanical insults that can cause neural dysfunction:
2. Compression or mechanical insult
3. Decrease axoplasmic flow
(TQ?) Sustained hyperactivity of nerve receptors or nerve tissue is which biomechanical insult to neural dysfunction?
biomechanical irritation of the neuropathophysiologic component
(TQ?) Neural element in or around the IVF, within fascial layers, or tonically contracted muscles is which biomechanical insult to neural dysfunction?
biomechanical compression of the neuropathophysiologic component
(TQ?) Affecting intraxonal transport mechanisms for delivery of macromolecules of neurotrophic substances is which biomechanical insult to neural dysfunction?
Decreased axoplasmic flow of the neuropathophysiologic component
hypermobility which is compensatory,
2. early manifestion of a chronically fixated vertebral aticulation is a shortening o ligaments as an adaptation to limited range of motion
this component is directly affected by the chiropracctic adjustment or thrust?
1. may include spasm or hypertonicity of musles,
2. HIlton's Law,
3. Nerves start to die
Which componet of the 5 VSC model incorporate's Hilton's law?
What is Hilton's Law?
1. law stating that nerve supplying a joint also supplies the muscles, which move the joint and the skin covering the articular insertion of those muscles
2. 19th centry English surgeon_ John Hilton came up with this
1. Weigert's Law,= formation of callus
2. Wolff's Law= bone adaptation to stress,
3. 5 cardinal signs of inflammaion,
4. osseous tissue changes in joint that may be expressed according to the clinical principles of Weigert's and Wolf's Laws
Wiegert's Law definition:
loss or destruction of part or element is likely to result in compensatory replacement and overproduction of tissue during the process of regeneration, repair or both, as in the
formation of callus
when a fracture bone heals
Wolff's law definition:
Every change in the form and function of a bone , or in it's function alone, followed by certain definite changes in its internal architecture and secondary alteration in it's external conformation.
5 Cardinal signs
4. Loss of function,
Biochemical or Pathophysiologic Component
1. Inflammatory chemicals,
2. Selye's Local Adaptation Syndrm inflammatory response leads to...,
3. G.A.S. or General Adaptation Syndrome,
Note: GAS is the end result of the VSC
What is G.A.S. stages?
1. alarm or fight or flight,
2. Resistance or PSNS attempts to balance,
3. Exhaustion or stressor beyond
What is the end result of the VSC in the Biochemical or Pathophysiologic component of VSC?
G.A.S. or General Adaptation Syndrome
1. T1 to T2 from lateral horn,
2. Fight or Flight,
4. Vasoconstriction of skin blood vessels,
5. Pale skin,
7. Increased sweating
1. Cranial nerves 3, 7, 9, !0 & Sacral nerves 2, 3, 4,
2. Resting digestion, as well as urinating, defecation, eating, sexual activity,
3. Bradycardia, &
4. Increased blood to organs
Fayes process for VSC?
1. find mobility,
2. use adjustive procedure to mobilize the fixation,
3. Recheck to confirm that the movement has improved
Faye's rational for adjustment?
1. Therapeutic approach,
2. prognosis= depends on pathology,
3. Prevention= regular motion exam to find and prevent subluxation complex from developing.
