ROOD`S SENSORIMOTOR APPOROACH

ROOD`S SENSORIMOTOR APPOROACH

-Margaret rood the earliest theorist is both an occupational and physical therapist. She stresses the importance of early reflexes in the relearning of motor control

-Rood first used her techniques effectively with children in cerebral palsy.

-She believed that a baby use reflexes to move initially but modifies them and eventually replace the reflexes worth voluntary movement.

-Involves superficial cutaneous stimulation using stroking, brushing, icing, or muscle stimulation with vibration tendon tapping and joint compression to evoke voluntary contraction or inhibition of proximal muscle

- ROOD`S 4 BASIC PRINCIPAL:-

1)-Sensory input is required for normalization of tone and evocation of desired muscular response.

2)-Sensory motor control is developmentally based.

3)-Movement is purposeful engagement in activities is required to produce a normal response.

4)-Repetition of movement is necessary for learning

 

-ROOD`S FACILITATION TECHNIQUES:-

1)-Light stroking

2)-Brushing

3)-icing

4)-Joint compression are used to facilitate movement

 

-ROOD`S INHIBITION TECHNIQUES:-

1)-Joint approximation (light compression)

2)-Neural warmth

3)-Pressure on tendon

4)-Slow rhythmical movement are used to inhibit unwanted movement

 

-ROOD`S IDENTIFIED 8 ONTOGENTIC MOTOR PATTERNS IN THE FOLLOWING SEQUENCE:-

1)-Supine withdrawal

2)-Segmental rolling

3)-Pivot prone (prone extension)

4)-Neck co-contraction

5)-Supporting self on elbows

6)-All fours movement patterns

7)-Standing

8)-Walking
