Cross reflexes, referral areas and diagonal reflexes
We have cross reflexes, we have referral areas and we have diagonal reflexes.
I have discussed these relationships in my presentation of the ICR conference 2015.
Read it here: http://spiros-reflexologia.blogspot.gr/2015/09/my-ppt-presentation-for-icr-2015.html
Here is a nice article discussing the anatomical relationship in one example of diagonal reflexes.
Piecing It All Together
So what do we know? We know that the right side of the patient’s Gmax is slightly slower in terms of its firing pattern and that this muscle plays a role in the force closure process of the SIJ. This tells us that if the Gmax cannot perform this function of stabilizing the SIJ, then something else will assist in stabilizing the joint. The left latissimus dorsi is the synergist that helps stabilize the right Gmax and, more importantly, the SIJ. As the patient participates in running, every time her right leg contacts the ground and goes through the gait cycle, the left latissimus dorsi is over-contracting. This causes the left scapula to depress, and the muscles that resist the downward depressive pull will be the upper trapezius and the levator scapulae. Subsequently, these muscles start to fatigue; for the patient in question, this occurs at approximately four miles, at which point she feels pain in her left superior scapula. http://www.fascialfitness.net.au/articles/298/
