  • stimulation
  • The study, "Tactile stimulation with Kinesiology tape alleviates muscle weakness attributable to attenuation of Ia afferents," involved 10 healthy males with an average age of about 22 years. (massagemag.com)
  • However, this study was designed to investigate the efficacy of tactile stimulation-in the form of kinesiology tape-on muscle weakness that is neurophysiologically similar to the muscle weakness seen among people who have suffered a knee injury. (massagemag.com)
  • In order to create a neurophysiologically similar weakness among the study's healthy subjects, the researchers used prolonged vibration stimulation. (massagemag.com)
  • Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) can prevent critical illness polyneuromyopathy (CIPNM), according to Greek researchers. (redorbit.com)
  • Electrical muscle stimulation is a promising preventive tool for critical illness polyneuromyopathy, a common complication of critical illness which is associated with increased duration of ICU stay, morbidity and mortality," said Dr. Nanas. (redorbit.com)
  • The application of EMS in patients after they are discharged from the ICU to improve and restore the muscle function should also be further evaluated, as should the long term effect in muscle function and quality of life of electrical muscle stimulation that has been applied during ICU stay.

  • When the intrinsic muscles of the foot are stretched to simulate weight-bearing, the previously strong postural extensor muscles should remain strong or even test stronger because these muscles are normally facilitated by stimulation to the receptors of the positive support reaction.

  • weak
  • If your muscles have become weak from lack of use, resistance exercises using weights can strengthen them. (healthline.com)
  • Previously, about a month or so ago, I had my first PT session for MS. During his exam, he found that my upper thigh muscles, particularly my inside groin muslces are really weak. (medhelp.org)
  • This is when your muscle still functions but feels weak quickly and takes a long time to recover. (34-menopause-symptoms.com)
  • disorder
  • Among mothers who delivered their babies vaginally, those with a pelvic disorder did have weaker muscles than did those without any problems, but the same was not always true among mothers who had given birth via cesarean. (reuters.com)
  • The average muscle strength of women in the cesarean group with any type of pelvic disorder was 39 cm, compared to 36 cm among the women without a disorder - such a small difference it could have been due to chance. (reuters.com)
  • stimulate
  • When the foot is weight-bearing, the force upon the interphalangeal joints and the stretching of the interosseous, adductor hallucis and other muscles stimulate the joint receptors and muscle spindles to provide facilitation of the extensor muscles, which is the essence of the positive support reaction. (dynamicchiropractic.com)
  • toes
  • He tested my muscle strength (pushed against my arms and legs, had me sit in a chair with my hands on my legs to see how well I could get up, watched me walk normally, on my tip toes and heels). (sclero.org)
  • signals
  • Those signals tell your muscles to move. (healthline.com)
  • When nerve fibers are damaged, your brain can't effectively send your muscles the signals they need to flex or contract. (healthline.com)
  • The two outcome measures for this study were maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) during knee extension and electromyography (EMG) signals from the muscles, which were recorded during the MVC measurements. (massagemag.com)
  • Part of the process of strength training is increasing the nerve's ability to generate sustained, high frequency signals which allow a muscle to contract with their greatest force. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • Complaints of muscle weakness will often present some difficulty to a doctor, because this can refer to several different types of muscular problems. (34-menopause-symptoms.com)
  • There is no sensation of pain or discomfort, the muscle appears to simply 'stop listening' and gradually cease to move, often lengthening. (wikipedia.org)
  • doctor
  • That's why it's important to address your muscle weakness with your doctor and physical therapist and find solutions together. (healthline.com)
  • Need to make a doctor appointment for Pediatric Muscle Weakness / Palsy this week? (zocdoc.com)
  • During your initial appointment, it is probable that your doctor will want to feel your muscles when flexed or watch you carry out simple tasks such as walking or lifting an object. (34-menopause-symptoms.com)
  • If your doctor is not satisfied that he/she can pinpoint your condition after solely a physical exam, the next step is usually a blood test for muscle weakness. (34-menopause-symptoms.com)
  • During the test, you will be asked to contract and relax different muscles , and the technology will measure their behavior, enabling the doctor to assess to competency of the messages between your brain and your muscles. (34-menopause-symptoms.com)
  • Usually, the above tests are sufficient to enable a doctor to discover why you might be suffering from muscle weakness. (34-menopause-symptoms.com)
  • It's good that he's doing the test for muscle inflammation and it sounds like he is a good doctor, I'm glad for you for that. (sclero.org)
  • potentially
  • With the use of forceps you're stretching or disrupting muscles potentially at a much greater rate than you would with women who have given birth (without forceps) or by cesarean," which might explain the finding, said Lisa Kane Low, a professor at the University of Michigan School of Nursing, who was not involved in this study. (reuters.com)
  • research
  • There's some evidence from earlier research that pelvic muscle weakness could increase the likelihood of having urinary incontinence or other "pelvic floor" dysfunctions, but this study was unable to make that link. (reuters.com)
  • Weakness in those muscles has long been thought to play a role in injuries to pitchers, according to C. David Geier Jr., MD, of the Medical University of South Carolina, who was not involved in the research. (medpagetoday.com)
