    Explanation
    The correct answer is "increases circulation." The physiological effects of stroking do not include an increase in circulation. Stroking typically has a calming effect on the nerves and promotes relaxation, which can lead to a decrease in circulation. Additionally, stroking activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for rest and digestion. However, it does not directly sedate the nerves.

    Epigastric reflex stroking influences

    • A.

      Hypoflaxia

    • B.

      Constipation

    Correct Answer
    A. Hypoflaxia
    Explanation
    The given answer, "hypoflaxia," suggests that the epigastric reflex stroking influences a decrease in muscle tone or activity in the gastrointestinal tract. This can lead to symptoms like constipation, as the reduced muscle contractions can slow down the movement of stool through the intestines. However, without further context or information, it is difficult to provide a more detailed explanation.

      Centrifugal

    • E.

      Centripetal

    Correct Answer
    D. Centrifugal
    Explanation
    Centrifugal force is a term used to describe the outward force experienced by an object moving in a curved path. In the context of the given question, centrifugal force can decrease circulation by pushing blood away from the center of rotation. Additionally, this force can have a sedative effect on viscera (internal organs) and nerve centers. Therefore, the correct answer is "centrifugal."

    Which friction is used for decreasing swelling and increasing absorbtion?

    • A.

      Spriral

    • B.

      Circular

    • C.

      Rotary

    • D.

      Centrifugal

    • E.

      Centripetal

    Correct Answer
    E. Centripetal
    Explanation
    Centripetal friction is used for decreasing swelling and increasing absorption. When an object moves in a circular path, centripetal friction acts towards the center of the circle, helping to control the motion and prevent the object from moving away. In the context of decreasing swelling and increasing absorption, centripetal friction can be used to apply pressure or massage in a circular motion, promoting blood flow and reducing swelling. This type of friction is commonly used in medical treatments such as massage therapy or lymphatic drainage techniques.

    Where would you want to use deritative friction for pelvic pain?

    • A.

      Legs

    • B.

      Lower back

    • C.

      Chest

    Correct Answer
    B. Lower back
    Explanation
    Derivative friction is a technique used in massage therapy to address pelvic pain. It involves applying pressure and friction to the skin and underlying tissues of the lower back. This technique helps to increase blood flow, release tension, and reduce pain in the muscles and connective tissues of the lower back. By targeting the source of the pain, derivative friction can provide relief and improve mobility in individuals experiencing pelvic pain.

    Friction used on extrimities

    • A.

      Spiral

    • B.

      Circular

    • C.

      Centrifugal

    • D.

      Centripetal

    Correct Answer
    B. Circular
    Explanation
    The term "friction used on extremities" suggests that the question is referring to a type of friction that occurs on circular paths. When an object moves in a circular path, it experiences a force called centripetal force that acts towards the center of the circle. This force is responsible for keeping the object on its circular path. Friction is one of the forces that can provide the necessary centripetal force. Therefore, the correct answer is "circular" because friction is used on extremities to maintain circular motion.

    Alternant and intermediate compression is

    • A.

      Friction

    • B.

      Effleurage

    • C.

      Kneading

    • D.

      Chucking

    Correct Answer
    C. Kneading
    Explanation
    Kneading is a massage technique that involves applying pressure and manipulating the muscles and soft tissues in a circular motion. It helps to increase blood flow, relax muscles, and relieve tension. Alternant and intermediate compression refer to the pressure applied during kneading, which helps to break up knots and adhesions in the muscles. Friction and effleurage are other massage techniques that involve different types of movements and pressure. Chucking, on the other hand, is not a massage technique and is unrelated to the given options.
