Postulates reguarding change for Biomechanical FoR.
1. If the therapist uses orthoses and positioning, structural damage will be prevented.
2. If the therapist uses orthoses, positioning, and rest followed by stress, structural stability will be regained.
3. If the therapist prescribes increased duration and/or intensity of activities, then endurance will be regained.
4. f the therapist uses elevation, pressure, temperature control, and ROM, then peripheral edema will be reduced.
5. If the therapist uses PROM, active assisted ROM, AROM, scar preventin, orthoses and positioning, then passive ROM wil be maintained.
6. If the therapist uses heat, scar remodeling, passive stretch, active stretch, orthoses, poistioning, and activities, then ROM will be increased.
7. If the therapist uses AROM and activities, then strength will be maintained.
8. If the therapist uses isometric, active assistive, active, and progressive or regressive resistive exercises, then strength will be increased.
