  • stretches
  • When pulled apart, the fibrils stretched up to 100 percent of their resting length before breaking, and a tendon stretches only 10 to 20 percent before breaking. (redorbit.com)
  • fibres
  • The internal tendon bulk is thought to contain no nerve fibres, but the epitenon and paratenon contain nerve endings, while Golgi tendon organs are present at the junction between tendon and muscle. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ankle
  • Attention was directed to the lateral aspect of the left ankle where a linear incision was made over the course of the peroneus brevis tendon 2 cm from the insertion site to just distal to the fibula. (aapc.com)
  • Peroneal tendon issues arise from stress while playing sports, wear and tear, swelling of tendons and ankle trauma or sprain. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Tendons are typically transferred in order to restore more normal movement to a foot and ankle that has lost function. (aofas.org)
  • Some tendon transfers allow the ankle and foot to move up and down and regain some motion. (aofas.org)
  • There are two common indications for tendon transfer in the foot and ankle. (aofas.org)
  • spontaneously
  • The team were able to show that mice with defective cells at the surface of their tendons appeared to have difficulty walking and spontaneously develop tendon adhesions, even without surgery or injury. (news-medical.net)
  • bones
  • The tendons may rub against the bony structures or may become impinged between the bones and bursa. (livestrong.com)
  • This muscle actually has a long inserting tendon attaching to the end of one of your forearm bones, the radius. (livestrong.com)
  • tendinitis
  • Anterior tibial tendinitis is associated with overuse of the anterior tibial tendon that permits upward foot movement. (ehow.co.uk)
  • fibrils
  • In tendons, the fibrils then assemble further to form fascicles, which are about 10 mm in length with a diameter of 50-300 μm, and finally into a tendon fibre with a diameter of 100-500 μm. (princeton.edu)
  • The collagen in tendons are held together with proteoglycan components, including decorin and, in compressed regions of tendon, aggrecan , which are capable of binding to the collagen fibrils at specific locations. (princeton.edu)
  • Using a combination of nanoscience and biomedical and civil engineering scientists uncovered single threads, which are fibrils of collagen that make up the tendons. (redorbit.com)
  • The fibrils are about five times stronger and can strain about five times farther than a tendon," Steven Eppell, a professor of biomedical engineering and senior author of the study was quoted as saying. (redorbit.com)
  • Molecules called proteoglycans are the cement that holds the fibrils together, and scientists believe that this is the weak part of the tendon. (redorbit.com)
  • The investigators think water actually toughens fibrils and tendons as a whole. (redorbit.com)
  • Since the proteoglycans in the cement control the degree of hydration around the fibrils, the team believes they may be the best targets when designing drugs to control tendon strength. (redorbit.com)
  • Sprains
  • Scientists can now look all the way down to the atoms our tendons are made up of and discover the reason for these strains, sprains, and tears. (redorbit.com)
  • Tearing of the tendon tissue underlies all sprains. (livestrong.com)
  • glycosaminoglycan
  • [ 7 ] The major glycosaminoglycan (GAG) components of the tendon are dermatan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate , which associate with collagen and are involved in the fibril assembly process during tendon development. (princeton.edu)
  • fascia
  • Filling the interstitia within the fascia where the tendon is located is the paratenon a fatty areolar tissue . (wikipedia.org)
  • injections
  • Boussakri H, Bouali A (2014) Subcutaneous rupture of the extensor pollicis longus tendon after corticosteroid injections for DeQuervain's stenosing tenovaginitis. (springer.com)
  • Boussakri H, Bouali A (2014) Subcutaneous rupture of the extensor pollicis longus tendon after corticosteroid injections in DeQuervain stenosing tendovaginitis. (springer.com)
  • insertion
  • The tendon spreads out somewhat at its lower end so that its narrowest part is about 4 cm (1.6 in) above its insertion. (wikipedia.org)
  • eccentric
  • Charles Poliquin, Australian coach for Olympic medal winners in 12 sports, recommends eccentric weightlifting exercise for strengthening tendons. (livestrong.com)
  • fascicles
  • [ 5 ] Groups of fascicles are bounded by the epitendon and peritendon to form the tendon organ. (princeton.edu)
  • Histologically, tendons consist of dense regular connective tissue fascicles encased in dense irregular connective tissue sheaths. (wikipedia.org)
  • pain
  • If you experience sudden tendon pain, apply ice to the affected area, try not to move it and seek medical attention. (livestrong.com)
  • If pain is triggered then the extensor tendons are likely to be involved. (sportsinjuryclinic.net)
  • Early treatment of foot tendon problems can save you from excruciating pain, surgery and deformities of the foot. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Although fairly uncommon, a tendon rupture can be a serious problem and may result in excruciating pain and permanent disability if untreated. (webmd.com)
  • Well after a shot into my tendon, all was well for about 2 weeks and then while curling, the pain happened again, and has been for the last few week, regardless of weight. (exrx.net)
  • injection
  • Conditions that make a rupture more likely include the injection of steroids into a tendon, certain diseases (such as gout or hyperparathyroidism), and having type O blood . (webmd.com)
  • help
  • The two peroneal tendons located at the back of the outer anklebone help the foot in pointing outward or downward. (ehow.co.uk)
  • combination
  • If several tendons have ruptured, he may do a combination of both techniques. (netdoctor.co.uk)
  • However, nearly every tendon of the entire body might be affected in a detrimental way by one or a combination of the aformentioned agents. (springer.com)
