  • painful
  • Methods: Three microbiopsies were obtained from the most bulky part of the tibialis and masseter muscles of seven and six healthy men and seven and six age-matched healthy women, respectively, while traditional open biopsies were obtained from the most painful spot of the masseter of five female patients and from a similar region of the masseter muscle of five healthy, age-matched women.

  • I've struggled with painful muscle spasms in my shoulder and upper back. (relaxtheback.com)
  • peripheral
  • Also, tetrodotoxin resistant voltage gated sodium-channels (NaV) are involved in peripheral sensitization and found in trigeminal ganglion neurons innervating the rat masseter muscle. (uib.no)
  • By irritating nerve roots, spondylosis can lead to peripheral neuropathy and muscle shortening. (bmj.com)
  • therapist

  • fibers
  • Trigger points are located in a taut band of muscles fibers. (nationwidechildrens.org)
  • Results: A similar percentage of nerve fibers in the healthy masseter (85.2%) and tibialis (88.7%) muscles expressed 5-HT3A-receptors. (uib.no)
  • 001). In the patients, significantly more fibers per section were found with an average of 3.8 ± 3 fibers per section in the masseter muscle compared to 2.7 ± 0.2 in the healthy controls (P = .024). (uib.no)
  • Conclusions: This study showed that the 5-HT3A-receptor is highly expressed in human masseter and tibialis muscles and that there are more nerve fibers that express 5-HT3A-receptors in the masseter of women with myofascial TMD compared to healthy women. (uib.no)
  • blood vessel
  • One hypothesis suggests that when excessive acetylcholine is released at the motor end plates, the calcium pump mechanism is disturbed, causing the sustained contraction of sarcomeres in the myofascial and local hypoxia due to blood vessel compression. (hindawi.com)
  • trapezius
  • An example of this is "computer neck" where the SCM, trapezius and other neck muscles become rigid because the head is held too far forward. (acupuncturebrooklyn.com)
  • The coordination and interplay between the UT and other scapula muscles such as the lower and middle trapezius, serratus anterior, rhomboids, levator scapulae and pectoralis minor, have a large bearing on how the scapula moves and how stable it can become to allow proper gleno-humeral motion.

  • organs
  • At first, it works to balance the muscles, re-align the skeleton and strengthen the functions of the organs and nervous system. (tinet.ie)
  • medial
  • These injuries bruise the cartilage and subchondral bone, and stretch the joint capsule and the medial branch nerve that lies along its edge. (dynamicchiropractic.com)
  • treatment
  • Participants in the treatment group received a short course of Neuro Emotional Technique that consists of muscle testing, general semantics and Traditional Chinese Medicine. (biomedcentral.com)
  • In subsequent articles, I will address sources of nerve entrapment of the cluneal nerves and the lateral cutaneous femoral nerve, as well as conservative treatment options. (acatoday.org)
  • pressure
  • Some muscles are too small or secluded to be hit directly with a broad cylinder of foam, so when rolling out the upper back, rear deltoids, and hips, for example, balls can provide more targeted pressure. (menshealth.com)
  • Applying more pressure isn't necessarily better, and, in fact, can cause the muscle to tighten up even more, as a protective mechanism. (menshealth.com)
