Conversely, women who discussed marital strife demonstrated lower levels of proinflammatory cytokines (IL-1b, IL-6, TNF-a). McPartland and Simons (2006) also pointed out that psychological and physical stress can impair the ability of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) to deactivate acetylcholine (ACh). “Intrasynaptic ACh must be deactivated; otherwise, it will continue to activate nicotinic ACh receptors (nACRs) in the muscle cell membrane” (McPartland and Simon 2006, 6). Excess ACh has been strongly linked to the development and persistence of myofascial trigger points (Gerwin, Dommerholt, and Shah 2004).

The bag fibers respond primarily to the velocity of stretch and chain fibers, resting length, and joint position sense (Bear et al. 2007). The intrafusal and extrafusal fibers run parallel to one another. Because the intrafusal fibers are an internal component of an extrafusal fiber, changes in the length of the extrafusal fibers produce a response from the muscle spindle, and vice versa. The ability of the muscle spindle to produce a recoil, or to spring back from a stretch, is based on its afferent sensory fiber orientation.

The spindle and GTO provide highly efficient proprioceptive feedback and regulation to changes in tissue elongation and tension, but not without the gamma motor neuron system’s influence. Gamma Motor Neuron System The gamma motor neuron system’s activity is influenced by visual, sensory, and motor activity (Bear et al. 2007). It is responsible primarily for regulating the sensitivity of the muscle spindle to changes in dynamic stretch as well as static length, but does not directly regulate the GTO.
