Some of the many forms of soft tissue stress responses that affect the body include the following (Barlow 1959, Basmajian 1974, Dvorak & Dvorak 1984, Janda 1982, 1983, Korr 1978, Lewit 1985, Simons et al 1999, Travell & Simons 1983, 1992). g. cranial distortions involving the reciprocal tension membranes due to birthing difficulties, such as forceps delivery). Overuse, misuse and abuse factors, such as injury or inappropriate or repetitive patterns of use involved in work, sport or regular activities.

7 General reflex models As Schafer (1987) points out: ‘The human body exhibits an astonishingly complex array of neural circuitry’. It is possible to characterize the reflex mechanisms which operate as part of involuntary nervous system function as follows. l l l l l Somatosomatic reflexes may involve stimulus of sensory receptors in the skin, subcutaneous tissue, fascia, striated muscle, tendon, ligament or joint producing reflex responses in segmentally related somatic structures. Somatovisceral reflexes involve a localized somatic stimulation (from cutaneous, subcutaneous or musculoskeletal sites) producing a reflex response in a segmentally related visceral structure (internal organ or gland) (Simons et al 1999).

6 and are more fully discussed in Volume 1, Chapter 3. The sensory receptors are listed as (Schafer 1987): l l l l l mechanoreceptors, which detect deformation of adjacent tissues, are excited by mechanical pressures or distortions and so would respond to touch or to muscular movement. Mechanoreceptors can become sensitized following what is termed a ‘nociceptive barrage’ so that they start to behave as though they are pain receptors. This would lead to pain being sensed (reported) centrally in response to what would normally have been reported as movement or touch (Schaible & Grubb 1993, Willis 1993) chemoreceptors, which report on obvious information such as taste and smell, as well as local biochemical changes such as CO2 and O2 levels thermoreceptors, which detect modifications in temperature, are most dense on the hands and forearms (and the tongue) electromagnetic receptors, which respond to light entering the retina nociceptors, which register pain.
