Golgi receptors are ubiquitous in dense connective tissues, such as liga­ ments (Golgi end organs) and joint capsules, as well as at the myotendinous junctions (Golgi tendon organs). These Figure 2-38 Effect of cyclic loading of tendon. Note that the stress-strain curve gradually shifts to the right.

Neurobiologic Response to Connective Tissue Loading: An Important Piece of the Puzzle Yahia et al44 demonstrated the viscoelastic properties of lumbodorsal fascia , shOwing clear forces- and time­ dependent viscoelastic phenomena, such as creep, hystere­ sis, and stress relaxation. It has remained a curiosity to practitioners of manual therapy how mechanical loading of the fascial tissues , for instance, can effect an immediate re­ sponse that cannot be explained by mechanical properties of these tissues alone.

28 Mechanotransduction processes in 18 PART I INTRODUCTION response to mechanical stresses share many common fea­ tures with processes in cell adhesion, such as an increase in tyrosine phosophorylation of proteins in the focal adhesion sites. In addition, other cell components, such as intermedi­ ate filaments, are directly implicated in providing cell re­ silience and in maintaining tissue integrity, each of which has direct implications for the soft connective tissues. By main­ taining the shape and plasticity of the cell, the intermediate filament network acts as an integrator within the cell space.
