Abnormal increase in skeletal or smooth muscle tone. Skeletal muscle hypertonicity may be associated with PYRAMIDAL TRACT lesions or BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES.
A form of muscle hypertonia associated with upper MOTOR NEURON DISEASE. Resistance to passive stretch of a spastic muscle results in minimal initial resistance (a "free interval") followed by an incremental increase in muscle tone. Tone increases in proportion to the velocity of stretch. Spasticity is usually accompanied by HYPERREFLEXIA and variable degrees of MUSCLE WEAKNESS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p54)
A heterogeneous group of nonprogressive motor disorders caused by chronic brain injuries that originate in the prenatal period, perinatal period, or first few years of life. The four major subtypes are spastic, athetoid, ataxic, and mixed cerebral palsy, with spastic forms being the most common. The motor disorder may range from difficulties with fine motor control to severe spasticity (see MUSCLE SPASTICITY) in all limbs. Spastic diplegia (Little disease) is the most common subtype, and is characterized by spasticity that is more prominent in the legs than in the arms. Pathologically, this condition may be associated with LEUKOMALACIA, PERIVENTRICULAR. (From Dev Med Child Neurol 1998 Aug;40(8):520-7)
An attitude or posture due to the co-contraction of agonists and antagonist muscles in one region of the body. It most often affects the large axial muscles of the trunk and limb girdles. Conditions which feature persistent or recurrent episodes of dystonia as a primary manifestation of disease are referred to as DYSTONIC DISORDERS. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p77)
Syndromes which feature DYSKINESIAS as a cardinal manifestation of the disease process. Included in this category are degenerative, hereditary, post-infectious, medication-induced, post-inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions.

The act, process, or result of passing from one place or position to another. It differs from LOCOMOTION in that locomotion is restricted to the passing of the whole body from one place to another, while movement encompasses both locomotion but also a change of the position of the whole body or any of its parts. Movement may be used with reference to humans, vertebrate and invertebrate animals, and microorganisms. Differentiate also from MOTOR ACTIVITY, movement associated with behavior.
Abnormal involuntary movements which primarily affect the extremities, trunk, or jaw that occur as a manifestation of an underlying disease process. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent episodes of dyskinesia as a primary manifestation of disease may be referred to as dyskinesia syndromes (see MOVEMENT DISORDERS). Dyskinesias are also a relatively common manifestation of BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES.

Evaluating the role of botulinum toxin in the management of focal hypertonia in adults. (1/79)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effects of EMG guided botulinum toxin (BTX-A) on impairment and focal disability in adults presenting with focal hypertonia. METHODS: A prospective, randomised, double blind, placebo controlled, parallel group trial was carried out with standardised assessment before and at 3 week intervals until 12 weeks after injection, in patients with focal hypertonia affecting upper or lower limbs. Botulinum toxin or placebo was injected with EMG guidance after multidisciplinary assessment. The modified Ashworth scale of spasticity, percentage passive range of joint motion, subjective rating of problem severity, the Rivermead motor assessment scale, a timed 10 metre walk (lower limb patients), nine hole peg test (upper limb patients), and a modified goal attainment scale were used as outcome measures. The patients were 52 adults; 34 male, 18 female; mean age 40.31, range 16-79 years; mean duration of symptoms 35 months (range 3 months to 22 years). Diagnoses included cerebrovascular accidents (23), head injury (12), incomplete spinal cord injury (six), tumour (five), cerebral palsy (three), and anoxic episodes (three). RESULTS: For each variable an overall score for the treatment period was computed by summing the scores from the 3, 6, 9, and 12 week assessments. These overall scores were significantly better in the treated group for the Ashworth scale, percentage passive range of movement, Rivermead lower limb, and subjective rating of problem severity. The significant treatment effect on the Ashworth scale was seen on analysis of variance (ANOVA) at 3 weeks and the subjective rating of problem severity at 3 and 6 weeks. The goal attainment scale score in both groups was similar at 12 weeks. CONCLUSION: Selective use of botulinum toxin to weaken muscles can lead to a reduction in resistance to passive movement about a distal limb joint. This allows for improvements in passive range of movement and focal disability, particularly in patients presenting with focal spasticity of the lower limb.  (+info)

Functional evidence of a constitutively active population of alpha(1D)-adrenoceptors in rat aorta. (2/79)

After depletion of intracellular calcium stores sensitive to noradrenaline, a spontaneous increase in the resting tone (IRT) when incubated in Ca(2+)-containing solution was observed in isolated rat aorta, but not in tail artery. This IRT does not depend on agonist activation of alpha(1)-adrenoceptors but it is inhibited by prazosin. A close relationship was found between the inhibitory potencies of prazosin (pIC(50) = 9.833), BMY 7378 (pIC(50) = 8.924), and 5-methylurapidil (pIC(50) = 7.883) against IRT and their affinities for cloned alpha(1D)-adrenoceptors. Chloroethylclonidine (100 micromol. l(-1)) did not inhibit the IRT. After depletion of internal calcium stores by noradrenaline in absence of the agonist, loading in Ca(2+)-containing solution also brings about an increase in the inositol phosphate (IP) levels in rat aorta (not seen in tail artery) that is inhibited by prazosin (1 micromol. l(-1)), BMY 7378 (10 micromol. l(-1)), and 5-methylurapidil (10 micromol. l(-1)), thus confirming the results obtained in contractile studies. Chloroethylclonidine (100 micromol. l(-1)) did not inhibit this IP accumulation. The fact that the IRT and the IP accumulation related to it can be selectively inhibited by different alpha(1)-adrenoceptor antagonists suggests the existence of a population of alpha(1D)-adrenoceptors that show constitutive activity in rat aorta, not in tail artery.  (+info)

Intrathecal baclofen for spastic hypertonia from stroke. (3/79)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We sought to determine whether continuous intrathecal delivery of baclofen can effectively decrease spastic hypertonia due to stroke. METHODS: Stroke patients with >6 months of intractable spasticity were screened via a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover design of either intrathecal normal saline or 50 microgram baclofen. Those who dropped an average of 2 points in either their affected lower extremity side Ashworth or Penn spasm frequency scores were then offered computer-controlled pump implantation for continuous ITB and followed prospectively for up to 12 months. RESULTS: In 21 stroke patients 6 hours after the active drug bolus, the average (+/-SD) lower extremity Ashworth score on the affected extremities decreased from 3.3+/-1.2 to 1.4+/-0.7 (P<0.0001), spasm score from 1.2+/-1.2 to 0.1+/-0.3 (P=0.0224), and reflex score from 2.1+/-1.2 to 0.1+/-0.5 (P<0.0001). The average upper extremity Ashworth score on the affected extremities decreased from 2.8+/-1.1 to 1.8+/-0.8 (P<0.0001), spasm score from 0.7+/-1.0 to 0.2+/-0.4 (P=0.1544), and reflex score from 2.1+/-0.9 to 1.2+/-0.9 (P=0.0004). All active drug scores were statistically different from placebo scores at 6 hours (P<0.05). With up to 12 months of continuous infusion of ITB in 17 implanted patients, the average lower extremity Ashworth score on the affected extremities decreased from 3.7+/-1.0 to 1.8+/-1.1 (P<0.0001), the spasm score dropped from 1.2+/-1.3 to 0.6+/-1.0 (P=0.4282), and the reflex score decreased from 2.4+/-1.3 to 1.0+/-1.3 (P<0.0001). The average upper extremity Ashworth score in the affected extremities decreased from 3.2+/-1.1 to 1.8+/-0.9 (P<0.0001), the spasm score dropped from 0.7+/-1.0 to 0.3+/-0.8 (P=0.8685), and the reflex score decreased from 2.4+/-0.8 to 1.5+/-1.2 (P=0.3337). The average continuous ITB dose required to attain these effects was 268 microgram/d. CONCLUSIONS: Intrathecal infusion of baclofen is capable of maintaining a reduction in the spastic hypertonia resulting from stroke.  (+info)

Nature and nurture in vitamin B12 deficiency. (4/79)

We report on a child in whom severe nutritional vitamin B12 deficiency was exacerbated by a genetic impairment of the folate cycle, causing reduced CSF concentrations of the methyl group donor 5-methyltetrahydrofolate. Some patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may benefit from high dose folic acid supplementation, even if plasma concentrations are high.  (+info)

ALG12 mannosyltransferase defect in congenital disorder of glycosylation type lg. (5/79)

In the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) of eukaryotes, N-linked glycans are first assembled on the lipid carrier dolichyl pyrophosphate. The GlcNAc(2)Man(9)Glc(3) oligosaccharide is transferred to selected asparagine residues of nascent polypeptides. Defects along the biosynthetic pathway of N-glycans are associated with severe multisystemic syndromes called congenital disorders of glycosylation. Here, we describe a deficiency in the ALG12 ER alpha1,6-mannosyltransferase resulting in a novel type of glycosylation disorder. The severe disease was identified in a child presenting with psychomotor retardation, hypotonia, growth retardation, dysmorphic features and anorexia. In the patient's fibroblasts, the biosynthetic intermediate GlcNAc(2)Man(7) oligosaccharide was detected both on the lipid carrier dolichyl pyrophosphate and on newly synthesized glycoproteins, thus pointing to a defect in the dolichyl pyrophosphate-GlcNAc(2)Man(7)-dependent ALG12 alpha1,6 mannosyltransferase. Analysis of the ALG12 cDNA in the CDG patient revealed compound heterozygosity for two point mutations that resulted in the amino acid substitutions T67M and R146Q, respectively. The impact of these mutations on ALG12 protein function was investigated in the Saccharomyces cerevisiae alg12 glycosylation mutant by showing that the yeast ALG12 gene bearing the homologous mutations T61M and R161Q and the human mutant ALG12 cDNA alleles failed to normalize the growth defect phenotype of the alg12 yeast model, whereas expression of the normal ALG12 cDNA complemented the yeast mutation. The ALG12 mannosyltransferase defect defines a new type of congenital disorder of glycosylation, designated CDG-Ig.  (+info)

Managing older patients with urinary retention in the Continence Clinic. (6/79)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of the Continence Clinic for managing retention of urine in older patients. DESIGN: Retrospective study. SETTING: Continence Clinic, Fung Yiu King Hospital, Hong Kong. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Case notes of 58 patients seen at the Fung Yiu King Hospital Continence Clinic from October 1997 to September 2001 were reviewed. The patients had retention of urine with post-void residual volume of more than 200 mL, retention of urine requiring catheterization, or had catheters for unknown reasons. RESULTS: Urodynamic study performed for 22 (38%) patients showed that 12 had detrusor underactivity, six had detrusor hyperactivity with impaired contraction, and four had bladder outlet obstruction. Among the patients who were initially catheterized, the success rate for gradually stopping reliance on urinary catheterization was 84%. The success rate was higher among those who did not undergo urodynamic study than among those who had the study done (95% versus 67%; P=0.03). Reduction in post-void residual volume was observed at the last clinic visits (P<0.0001). Moreover, significant decreases in post-void residual volume were found both for patients who did and did not have urodynamic study. CONCLUSION: Most of the older patients with urinary retention with or without indwelling catheters were treated successfully in the Continence Clinic by appropriate medical therapy. Urodynamic study can be performed for selected patients when managing urinary retention.  (+info)

Urinary bladder instability induced by selective suppression of the murine small conductance calcium-activated potassium (SK3) channel. (7/79)

Small conductance, calcium-activated potassium (SK) channels have an important role in determining the excitability and contractility of urinary bladder smooth muscle. Here, the role of the SK isoform SK3 was examined by altering expression levels of the SK3 gene using a mouse model that conditionally overexpresses SK3 channels (SK3T/T). Prominent SK3 immunostaining was found in both the smooth muscle (detrusor) and urothelium layers of the urinary bladder. SK currents were elevated 2.4-fold in isolated myocytes from SK3T/T mice. Selective suppression of SK3 expression by dietary doxycycline (DOX) decreased SK current density in isolated myocytes, increased phasic contractions of isolated urinary bladder smooth muscle strips and exposed high affinity effects of the blocker apamin of the SK isoforms (SK1-3), suggesting an additional participation from SK2 channels. The role of SK3 channels in urinary bladder function was assessed using cystometry in conscious, freely moving mice. The urinary bladders of SK3T/T had significantly greater bladder capacity, and urine output exceeded the infused saline volume. Suppression of SK3 channel expression did not alter filling pressure, threshold pressure or bladder capacity, but micturition pressure was elevated compared to control mice. However, SK3 suppression did eliminate excess urine production and caused a marked increase in non-voiding contractions. The ability to examine bladder function in mice in which SK3 channel expression is selectively altered reveals that these channels have a significant role in the control of non-voiding contractions in vivo. Activation of these channels may be a therapeutic approach for management of non-voiding contractions, a condition which characterizes many types of urinary bladder dysfunctions including urinary incontinence.  (+info)

The use of casts in the management of joint mobility and hypertonia following brain injury in adults: a systematic review. (8/79)

Many controversies exist regarding the practicality, the theoretical premises, and the supporting evidence for the use of casts in the management of joint hypomobility and hypertonia (ie, increase in joint resistance to passive movement resulting from hyperactivity of the stretch reflex and/or changes in the muscles and connective tissues). The purpose of this review was to determine current best practice for the use of casting in the rehabilitation of adults with brain injury. A systematic review was undertaken to find studies that quantified the effectiveness of casting in adults with brain injury. Thirteen articles that presented experimental or case report evidence on casting were analyzed using Sackett's levels of evidence and were examined for scientific rigor. A grade B recommendation is given for the use of casting to increase passive range of motion or to prevent its loss, and implications for further research are provided.  (+info)

Hypertonia is a neurological dysfunction associated with a number of central nervous system disorders, including cerebral palsy, Parkinsons disease, dystonia, and epilepsy. findings uncover a novel function of Trak1 as a regulator of mitochondrial fusion and provide evidence linking dysregulated mitochondrial dynamics to hypertonia pathogenesis. gene that generates a C-terminal truncated form of Trak1 has been identified as the genetic defect for causing recessively transmitted hypertonia in mice (Gilbert et al., 2006). Furthermore, variants in Trak1 has been linked to childhood absence epilepsy in humans by a genome-wide high-density SNP-based linkage analysis (Chioza et al., 2009). Additionally, altered Trak1 protein expression is associated with gastric and colorectal cancers (Zhang et al., 2009; An et al., 2011) and recently, whole exome sequencing has identified pathogenic variants in Trak1 that cause human fatal encephalopathy (Barel et al., 2017). The connection of Trak1 to multiple ...
Heres a quick update from the science literature on your hamstrings... Biomechanically speaking, tight hamstrings can affect the position of your pelvis, especially in forward bends. This can, in turn, affect your lumbar spine because tight hamstrings produce a pull on the ischial tuberosities and tilt your pelvis back (as shown below in figure 2). Tight Hamstrings in Your
In therapeutic riding, we often see clients who have issues with muscle tone. Hypertonia and hypotonia are two terms used to describe muscle tone. Hypertonia means high muscle tone and lack of flexibility. This often involves stiff movements and poor balance. Hypotonia means low muscle tone and too much flexibility, which can result in difficulty…
So, what are we dealing with in this case study!. There are asymptomatic episodes of sinus bradycardia and second-degree AV block as a result of vagal hypertonia. Simply put, but not always electrophysiologically correct, the right vagus nerve innovates the sinus node and the left the AV node. It is normal to have nocturnal sinus slowing and maybe first-degree AV block. With an exaggerated vagal response in the young, this may deteriorate further and with vagal hypertonia, we see the responses as shown.. Provided the patient is asymptomatic, nothing more need be done. If symptomatic, then interventional therapy may be required. In the past, dual chamber pacing was required. Today cardioneuroablation is being offered in some centres. This involves the electrophysiological ablation of the vagal ganglia, which innervate the sinus and AV nodes in the superior vena cava, right atrium and left atrium.. Results are preliminary and permanent pacing may be required. Remember, if you are unsure about ...

This chapter focuses on the role of neuronal mechanisms underlying gait disorders and the therapeutic consequences. Locomotion is a subconciously performed everyday movement with a high reproducibility. Leg muscle activation during locomotion is produced by spinal neuronal circuits within the spinal cord, the spinal pattern generator. Pathophysiologically, an impaired neuronal control of gait associated with rigid and poorly modulated motor performance represents a major deficit of Parkinsons disease. In patients with Parkinsons disease several studies on gait indicate an impaired programming. Spasticity produces numerous physical signs such as exaggerated reflexes, clonus, and muscle hypertonia. A considerable degree of locomotor recovery in mammals with a spinal cord injury (SCI) can be attributed to a reorganization of spared neural pathways. For future application in the rehabilitation field, gait analysis may help to select the most effective pharmacological and physiotherapeutical ...
Cerebral palsy (CP) affects 0.25% of newborn babies in the U.S. alone each year. Hypertonia (increased joint resistance to externally imposed motion) is a common symptom that limits function in this patient population. It may originate in spasticity, dystonia or rigidity or may be a combination of all these factors. Surgical, rehabilitation and pharmacotherapeutic methods are used to improve functional outcome in patients with cerebral palsy. These treatments are not always effective, and the amount of improvement is difficult to predict. The choice of treatment is based on clinical tests that are not objective, especially in children, and they do not allow for differentiation between various causes of increased joint resistance. As a result, ineffective treatments are offered to patients with different types of movement disorders. The complex torque devices used in research facilities to quantify the resistance of a joint cannot be easily applied in clinical settings. In previous studies, a ...

An infant is reported who presented with a de novo 21;21 translocation trisomy 21 and an atypical phenotype for Down syndrome (DS). Findings included microcephaly, small stature, downslanting palpebral fissures, absent Brushfield spots, moderate micrognathia, left ptosis, left torticollis, severe developmental delay, seizures, and hypertonia. Further clinical evaluation using both the diagnostic criteria for DS and the Jackson checklist of 25 signs was inconsistent with the diagnosis for DS. Blood karyotype revealed: 46,XX,+21,dic(21;21) (p11.2;p11.2). Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis confirmed the trisomy 21 translocation. Both parents had normal karyotypes. Chromosome and FISH analyses were performed on skin fibroblasts. These studies revealed mosaicism for a translocation trisomy 21 cell line as wel as a second cell line consisting of one normal chromosome 21 and a ring chromosome 21 derived from translocation 21q21q which appeared to have a deletion of the critical region for DS

A neurographic examination of 54 patients with essential hypertonia did not reveal any significant differences, from a control group, in the maximum rate of motor conduction of the ulnar nerve. An assocation of subclinical neuropathy with essential hypertonia cannot, therefore, be confirmed, thus denying the statement made by Viskoper and his coworkers and saying that the motor nerve conduction speed was an objective index for determining the severity of diseases characterized by hypertension.

Keeping your hamstrings loose is important. If you feel pain in your hamstring or there is tightness, its best to come see us for a free assessment before attempting to treat yourself at home!
In addition to being the anchor point of your hamstrings, the pelvis also must synchronize its position with your rib cage. The thoracic diaphragm (attached to the inside of your rib cage) and the pelvic floor (muscles that sling across the pelvis floor) act as a container of sorts for the internal pressures created by both air flowing in and out of your lungs and internal organs shifting around during movement.. Its kind of a gross physics peculiarity that your musculoskeletal system has to deal with, but your pelvis and the muscles of the pelvic floor set the foundation for the rib cage and thoracic diaphragm to act upon. Between the thoracic ceiling and the pelvic floor is all your squishy stuff.. None of this is a problem. Until it is.. Modern humans do a lot of sitting and a lot of stressing out, both of which have an effect on the body. Long bouts of sitting put your hip flexors in a shortened positioned.

Nursing home residents with dementia (according to the DSM-IV-TR criteria) and moderate to severe paratonia were randomly assigned to either a PMT or control group. The PMT group received PMT three times a week over four weeks. The control group received no PMT. The primary outcome was the severity of paratonia as measured by the Modified Ashworth scale (MAS). Secondary outcomes were clinical change (Clinical Global Impression; CGI), caregivers burden (modified patient specific complaints; PSC), and level of pain during morning care (Pain Assessment Checklist for Elderly with Limited Ability to Communicate, Dutch version; ...
Authors: Stefan Schwarz, MD; Dimitrios Georgiadis, MD; Alfred Aschoff, MD; Stefan Schwab, MD. Background and Purpose- The purpose of this study was to prospectively evaluate the effects of body position in patients with large supratentorial stroke.. Methods- We performed 43 monitoring sessions in 18 patients with acute complete or subtotal middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory stroke. Intracranial pressure (ICP) was monitored with a parenchymal probe. Mean arterial blood pressure, ICP, and MCA peak mean flow velocity (VmMCA) were continuously recorded. Patients with acute ICP crises were excluded. After baseline values at a 0° supine position were attained, the backrest was elevated in 2 steps of 5 minutes each to 15° and 30° and then returned to 0°.. Results- Baseline mean arterial pressure was 90.0±1.6 mm Hg and fell to 82.7±1.7 mm Hg at 15° and 76.1±1.6 mm Hg at 30° backrest elevation (P,0.0001). ICP decreased from 13.0±0.9 to 12.0±0.9 mm Hg at 15° and 11.4±0.9 mm Hg at 30° ...

Tetanus is characterized by an acute onset of hypertonia, painful muscular contractions (usually of the muscles of the jaw and neck), and generalized muscle spasms without other apparent medical causes. Despite widespread immunization of infants and children since the 1940s, tetanus still occurs in the United States.
A clinical case concerning differential diagnosis between tetanus, atropine poisoning and acute hypocalcemia is reported. A 51 year-old man has been hospitalized in ICU, coming from the emergency service of another hospital, with a diagnosis of suspected atropine poisoning (he had been under treatment with atropine collyrium 1% for same days). The patient at the moment of hospitalization presented: preserved coscience with good orientation in time and space, thrismus, slight nuchal rigidity, hypertonia to the inferior limbs, accentuated osteotendinous reflex to the four limbs, asthenia, intense perspiration, tachycardia, apyrexia and not appreciable ocular signs for previus pathology. At observation the patient showed to have had a thyroidectomy (presence of surgical scar), and he didnt remember to have been vaccinated against tetanus. Several small scars to the hands were observed (particulary a recent felon to the first finger of the rigth hand) all referable to his activity as agriculture ...
The hamstring muscles are the three muscles that run down the back of the thigh. They attach to the lower pelvis and to the back of the leg just below the knee. Tight hamstring muscles cause the tendons that attach them to the bone to feel taut and make them vulnerable to injury. Regular stretching can prevent hamstring injury. ...
Hello!. My name is Emilia! Thank you for visiting my JustGiving page. I am raising money to go to Footsteps in Oxfordshire where children with neurological conditions receive intensive physiotherapy. They are helping me with my physio to help me be able to walk independently. Love Emilia X. Emilia is a happy and beautiful little girl and she has some tough lifelong challenges ahead of her. Why does Emilia have these challenges? Emilia was diagnosed with a Rare Chromosome Disorder (q13 terminal deletion) at the age of 3 weeks old. Her condition is so rare that she is the only person in the UK with it. Emilia suffers with Global Development Delay, Microcephaly and Hypertonia. This results in her not being able to walk; she has learning difficulties and has difficulty communicating. In addition Emilia does not sleep and has problems with eating. We are desperate to help Emilia to improve her quality of life and as she says, Emilia is being treated at the Footsteps Centre and we are so hopeful ...
As a metallopeptidase with a large substrate spectrum neutral endopeptidase (Neprilysin, EC 3.4.24.11, NEP) influences diseases or pathophysiological states as different as hypertonia, Alzheimers disease or pathologic changes of the prostate. In this work the relations of NEP to Alzheimers disease and to two other pathophysiologic changes - an increased alcohol consumption under stress conditions as well as to adiposity/obesity - were examined in detail. Regarding Alzheimers disease the question was addressed why mice and rats do not show a complete Alzheimers pathology. The hydrolytic rate of the murine beta-Amyloid peptide was found to be decreased in contrast to the human form. The hydrolysis was further characterized by biochemistry. These findings were completed by the confirmation that murine abeta peptide does not form amyloid fibrils in contrast to the human peptide. By using the NEP knockout-mouse model in a free-choice drinking paradigm these mice showed an alcohol consumption ...

Our department is studying the protein damage in cells and tissues. Such protein damage is caused by free radicals and oxidants, by-products of cellular metabolism and increasingly formed during pathological changes leading to oxidative stress. High levels of blood glucose (hyperglycemia), elevated blood pressure (hypertonia) and inflammation are such pathological conditions.. Under normal conditions in a functioning cell or in a tissue such modified proteins are degraded and, therefore, detoxified, while in changing metabolic or pathological conditions or in advanced age it possible that the degradation of modified proteins is insufficient. To study the degradation of oxidized proteins we are investigating the intracellular proteolytic systems. It is well established that aged cells are less able to react on stress. Inadequate degradation of oxidized proteins occurs and cells are accumulating damaged proteins such as lipofuscin, an aging pigment. This in turn can affect the function of ...

Improve hip mobility. As mentioned earlier, the hip flexors can create a force pulling the pelvis into anterior rotation, increasing lumbar lordosis. Keeping the hip flexors mobility is essential to allowing for neutral spine positioning when strength training and running. For younger athletes a specific static hip flexor stretch is not necessary. You can adequately train the hip flexors with lunges and split squats to develop mobility and neuromuscular control. Again use a dowel held along the spine and cue abs tight to improve pelvic control during the movement. On the other end of the spectrum, the athlete with tight hamstrings may not be able to utilize their glutes well when doing deadlifts, squats or getting into athletic stance. Getting the hamstrings more mobile will help young athletes access their glute strength and decrease demands on the lumbar extensors. Again, an isolated static hamstring stretch is not needed. Get your athletes to hip hinge with a stick and RDL with a neutral ...
We all need to be flexible in order to do our daily routines, from the time you wake up in the morning, throughout the day, until you get ready for bed again. We all need to be flexible. However, as we age, our flexibility decreases. It shows with stiff hips, tight hamstrings, and we can hardly even touch our toes. But we can improve flexibility even as we age.. Read this helpful resource to unlock your hip flexors - https://buffedd.com/reviews/unlock-your-hip-flexors/. As we age through time, the group of muscles that connect the thigh bone to the pelvis and lumbar spine loses its flexibility. But this could be corrected with proper exercise and the right foods.. Aside from practicing Pilates and yoga, there are still other things we can do to improve muscle stretching. And we can start with the food we eat. In this section, lets talk about types of food to eat to help with muscle stretching.. ...
1. Bike fit - Get a professional bike fit. Tell the technician the kind of riding you actually do, not the position of racers that you want to emulate. Tell the technician about any pains you have anywhere in your body on the bike.. 2. Core strength - Do exercises designed to strengthen the core muscles that form a girdle around your abdomen, not exercises like crunches, sit-ups and back flexion / extension. Crunches, etc., strengthen your external muscles that bend and straighten your torso - not the core muscles. Further, crunches, etc., are dynamic, stretching and contracting your muscles. Core strength on the bike is isometric; your core muscles are engaged but nothing is moving.. 3. Stretches - Stretch your body, which is a kinetic whole. Tight hamstrings, for example, affect your gluteals, which affect your low back muscles, which affect your shoulder muscles. Because your body is a kinetic whole, do a set of stretches that increases range of motion in all parts of your body.. I spend 10 - ...
Typically, clients complaining of low-back pain will present with lumbosacral misalignment, characterized by excessive (lordosis) or flattened lumbar curvature, anterior or posterior pelvic tipping, and/or rotations and uneven iliac crest heights. Observe your clients personal tension patterns. Their spinal extensor muscles will usually appear as tight, wiry ridges next to the spine. The lumbodorsal fascia will feel bound to neighboring tissue layers. Your goal will be to relieve the lumbar spine compression that is the result of these chronically shortened myofascia.. Often tight hamstrings and quadriceps, as well as hypotoned or hypertoned abdominals and iliopsoas muscles, contribute to low-back tension. Your clients will often appear to be so compacted at the lumbar level that their bodies weight will not settle through the pelvis into the legs. It is almost as though the legs are not fully functioning as connectors to the ground; they seem, instead, to be the legs on a stick figure. They ...

Ive posted before about my issue. I have a self-diagnosed posterior pelvic tilt. This has caused my lumbar to flatten instead of having the natural inward curve. It also changes the way the vertabrae roll and function as a group and my lumbar section bends as one whole unit instead of rolling when I bend. I also experience pretty bad sciatic bad because of the vertabrae being angled improperly. I am not sure what caused what, whether my tight hamstrings caused my PPT or vice-versa. It f...

Picture a bow and arrow.. If you imagine that the knee is the bow, and the hamstrings are the string, Meininger said, You can imagine that the quadriceps and the kneecap have to fight against a tight hamstring… and if you have a really tight hamstring, [the knee] never wants to go quite straight.. Chronically tight hamstrings, according to Meininger, increase strain on the knee and the long-term workload of the quadriceps, which can lead to thinning of the cartilage within the knee (patellofemoral syndrome) or inflammation of the patellar tendon (patellar tendonitis) below the quadriceps.. Additionally, the hamstrings are intimately related with the IT band, he said.. Therefore, the common overuse syndromes in cyclists, like [frontal] knee pain, patellar tendonitis, patellofemoral syndrome, and IT band syndrome, Meininger said, you can conquer all of those with simple things like… abductor strengthening and hamstring stretching.. ...

Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common developmental disability amongst children in the United States, and encompasses a heterogenous group of motor impairment syndromes caused by a non-progressive lesion of the brain. The cause is typically unknown, and the lesion can arise either pre-natally, peri-natally or post-natally. Patients can have mild functional impairments or severely limited mobility and motor control. Many patients have spasticity and hypertonia. CP is a long-term chronic medical condition that requires long-term supportive care services as well as physiotherapy and occupational therapy. In the US, approximately 764,000 children and adults are living with CP, and it is estimated another 8,000-10,000 babies develop CP each year.. ...
Thanks to all for the sweet messages, calls, texts and prayers for Brody & Kylee. Being up at 3:30am made for a lonnngg day, but all went well! Weve been told for a while now that Brody & Kylee, due to their Cerebral Palsy & hypertonia/dystonia (tight muscles), may be good candidates for Botox. Even with physical & occupational therapy, constraint therapy, orthotics and endless exercises and stretches, these two will likely have minor issues due to their CP for years to come. After visiting with their neurologist in December, he thought it would be good to give the Botox a shot.. Following intramuscular injection, the neurotoxin causes a reversible neuromuscular blockade, creating both muscle weakness and a reduction in tone. We were told that basically the Botox will temporarily paralyze or weaken the nerve endings allowing more flexibility and allowing us to stretch their muscles more effectively. Brody received 8 injections, 4 in each leg. Because of his tone, Brody toes walks from time to ...

Something to always keep in the back of your mind.. BRAT1. Straussberg and collaborators report a homozygous mutation in BRAT1 in two siblings with early-onset myoclonic seizures in the European Journal of Pediatric Neurology. Both siblings had secondary microcephaly and hypertonia, and had recurrent issues with apnea and bradycardia. Both patients died in infancy due to cardiac arrest. BRAT1 was initially identified in an Old Order Amish infant with catastrophic epilepsy and corticobasal degeneration, a syndrome referred to as lethal neonatal rigidity and multifocal seizure syndrome (OMIM #614498). It has also been described as a cause of familial Ohtahara Syndrome ...

Background: Although largely preventable, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the biggest cause of death worldwide. Common complex cardiovascular disorders (e.g., coronary heart disease, hypertonia, or thrombophilia) result from a combination of genetic alterations and environmental factors. Recent advances in the genomics of CVDs have fostered huge expectations about future use of susceptibility variants for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Our aim was to summarize the latest developments in the field from a public health perspective focusing on the applicability of data on single nucleotide polymorphisms, through a systematic review of studies from the last decade on genetic risk estimating for common CVDs.Methods: Several keywords were used for searching the PubMed, Embase, CINAHL, and Web of Science databases. Recent advances were summarized and structured according to the main public health domains (prevention, early detection, and treatment) using a framework suggested recently for

Yoga: Although yoga and running lie on opposite ends of the exercise spectrum, the two need not be mutually exclusive. Runners often experience bad backs and knees, tight hamstrings, and sore feet. Its not surprising, during the course of an average mile run, your foot will strike the ground 1,000 times. The force of impact on each foot is about three to four times your weight. All sports injuries are caused by imbalances. The pain most runners feel is not from the running in and of itself, but from imbalances that running causes and exacerbates. If you bring your body into balance through the practice of yoga, you can run long and hard for years to come.

Patellofemoral pain syndrome got its nickname for an obvious and very unfortunate reason: Its common among runners. The stress of running can cause irritation where the kneecap (patella) rests on the thighbone. The resulting pain can be sharp and sudden or dull and chronic, and it may disappear while youre running, only to return again afterward. While biomechanical issues may be to blame, the cause can often be traced back to poorly conditioned quadriceps and tight hamstrings.
Detrusor instability is the commonest type of urinary incontinence in the elderly and is present in up to 50% of patients attending continence clinics. Treatment of this condition, aimed at reducing uncontrollable detrusor contractions, is at present unsatisfactory. For example, calcium antagonists are cliniclly disappointing and studies were carried out to investigate why they are ineffective. Rats were treated with nimodipine for 8 days or with a single dose. Treatment for 8 days had no effect on isolated detrasor contraction but a single dose reduced detrasor contractile response. It is propossed that chronic treatment with nimodipine caused an up-regulation of calcium channels as a compensatory mechanism. Oestrogens have been shown to have an inhibitory effect on detrusor muscle contraction after in vitro and in vivo treatment. In post-menopausal women with a uterus unopposed oestrogens should not be given, but progesterone has anti-oestrogenic actions. When rats were treated with oestrogen ...
