Acute systematic and variable postural adaptations induced by an orthopaedic shoe lift in control subjects. (1/615)

A small leg length inequality, either true or functional, can be implicated in the pathogenesis of numerous spinal disorders. The correction of a leg length inequality with the goal of treating a spinal pathology is often achieved with the use of a shoe lift. Little research has focused on the impact of this correction on the three-dimensional (3D) postural organisation. The goal of this study is to quantify in control subjects the 3D postural changes to the pelvis, trunk, scapular belt and head, induced by a shoe lift. The postural geometry of 20 female subjects (X = 22, sigma = 1.2) was evaluated using a motion analysis system for three randomised conditions: control, and right and left shoe lift. Acute postural adaptations were noted for all subjects, principally manifested through the tilt of the pelvis, asymmetric version of the left and right iliac bones, and a lateral shift of the pelvis and scapular belt. The difference in the version of the right and left iliac bones was positively associated with the pelvic tilt. Postural adaptations were noted to vary between subjects for rotation and postero-anterior shift of the pelvis and scapular belt. No notable differences between conditions were noted in the estimation of kyphosis and lordosis. The observed systematic and variable postural adaptations noted in the presence of a shoe lift reflects the unique constraints of the musculoskeletal system. This suggests that the global impact of a shoe lift on a patient's posture should also be considered during treatment. This study provides a basis for comparison of future research involving pathological populations.  (+info)

Isolated and combined lesions of the axillary nerve. A review of 146 cases. (2/615)

We have assessed the final strength of the deltoid in 121 patients who had repair of isolated or combined lesions of the axillary (circumflex) nerve and were available for statistical analysis. Successful or useful results were achieved in 85% after grafting of isolated lesions. The strength was statistically better when patients had grafting of the axillary nerve within 5.3 months from the time of injury. The dramatic decrease in the rate of success seen with longer delays suggests that surgery should be undertaken within three months of injury. A statistically significant downward trend of the rate of success was noted with increasing age. The force and level of injury to the shoulder play an important role in the type, combination and level of nerve damage and the incidence of associated rotator-cuff, vascular and other injuries to the upper limb. Management of isolated and combined lesions of the axillary nerve after injury to the shoulder needs to be thorough and systematic.  (+info)

Atypical form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. (3/615)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate patients with an unusual type of muscular atrophy confined to the upper limbs (proximally dominant) and the shoulder girdle, while sparing the face and the legs until the terminal stage. METHODS: Eight patients (six men and two women) were clinically examined. The age at onset ranged from 42 to 73 years, and the clinical course varied from 28 to 81 months. There was no family history of motor neuron disease in any of these patients. Necropsy was performed in two of them. RESULTS: All eight patients basically showed a similar distribution of muscular weakness and atrophy. Subluxation of the shoulder joints was found in all patients. Reflexes were absent in the upper limbs in all patients, but were almost normal in the face and legs in most patients. Pathological reflexes could be elicited in only one patient. Electromyography showed typical neurogenic changes in the limbs of all patients. Cervical MRI disclosed moderate spondylotic changes in seven patients. Antiganglioside antibodies were negative in six patients tested. Abnormal trinucleotide (CAG) repeat expansion of androgen receptor gene was not recognised in five patients examined. Bulbar involvement developed in three patients during the course of the disease. At necropsy, one patient showed degeneration of the pyramidal tracts and motor cortex including Betz cells as well as loss of spinal anterior horn cells and brainstem motor neurons, which is consistent with ALS; in another patient there was neuronal loss of anterior horn cells at the spinal cord accompanied by astrogliosis, whereas the motor cortex and brainstem motor nuclei were relatively well preserved. Intracytoplasmic inclusions such as Bunina bodies, skein-like inclusions, and Lewy body-like inclusions were found in both patients. CONCLUSION: These patients with their peculiar pattern of muscular atrophy seem to have ALS or a subtype of ALS.  (+info)

Case report. Recovery of shoulder movement in patients with complete axillary nerve palsy. (4/615)

Classical anatomical teaching suggests that the deltoid muscle is the main abductor of the shoulder. We present three cases of proven complete paralysis of the deltoid with an almost full range of movement of the shoulder owing to the compensatory action of accessory muscles. The mechanisms by which this occurs are described.  (+info)

Ultrasound therapy for calcific tendinitis of the shoulder. (5/615)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Although ultrasound therapy is used to treat calcific tendinitis of the shoulder, its efficacy has not been rigorously evaluated. We conducted a randomized, double-blind comparison of ultrasonography and sham insonation in patients with symptomatic calcific tendinitis verified by radiography. Patients were assigned to receive 24 15-minute sessions of either pulsed ultrasound (frequency, 0.89 MHz; intensity, 2.5 W per square centimeter; pulsed mode, 1:4) or an indistinguishable sham treatment to the area over the calcification. The first 15 treatments were given daily (five times per week), and the remainder were given three times a week for three weeks. Randomization was conducted according to shoulders rather than patients, so a patient with bilateral tendinitis might receive either or both therapies. RESULTS: We enrolled 63 consecutive patients (70 shoulders). Fifty-four patients (61 shoulders) completed the study. There were 32 shoulders in the ultrasound-treatment group and 29 in the sham-treatment group. After six weeks of treatment, calcium deposits had resolved in six shoulders (19 percent) in the ultrasound-treatment group and decreased by at least 50 percent in nine shoulders (28 percent), as compared with respective values of zero and three (10 percent) in the sham-treatment group (P=0.003). At the nine-month follow-up visit, calcium deposits had resolved in 13 shoulders (42 percent) in the ultrasound-treatment group and improved in 7 shoulders (23 percent), as compared with respective values of 2 (8 percent) and 3 (12 percent) in the sham-treatment group (P=0.002). At the end of treatment, patients who had received ultrasound treatment had greater decreases in pain and greater improvements in the quality of life than those who had received sham treatment; at nine months, the differences between the groups were no longer significant. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with symptomatic calcific tendinitis of the shoulder, ultrasound treatment helps resolve calcifications and is associated with short-term clinical improvement.  (+info)

The long-term course of shoulder complaints: a prospective study in general practice. (6/615)

OBJECTIVE: Assessment of the long-term course of shoulder complaints in patients in general practice with special focus on changes in diagnostic category and fluctuations in the severity of the complaints. DESIGN: Prospective descriptive study. SETTING: Four general practices in The Netherlands. METHOD: All patients (101) with shoulder complaints seen in a 5 month period were included. Assessment took place 26 weeks and 12-18 months after inclusion in the study with a pain questionnaire and a physical examination. RESULTS: A total of 51% of the patients experienced (mostly recurrent) complaints after 26 weeks and 41% after 12-18 months. Diagnostic changes were found over the course of time, mostly from synovial disorders towards functional disorders of the structures of the shoulder girdle, but also the other way round. Although 52 of the 101 patients experienced complaints in week 26, 62% of those patients considered themselves 'cured'. After 12-18 months, 51% of the 39 patients experiencing complaints felt 'cured'. CONCLUSION: Many patients seen with shoulder complaints in general practice have recurrent complaints. The nature of these complaints varies considerably over the course of time, leading to changes in diagnostic category. Because of the fluctuating severity of the complaints over time, feeling 'cured' or not 'cured' is also subject to change over time.  (+info)

Injuries to riders in the cross country phase of eventing: the importance of protective equipment. (7/615)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the distribution of injuries in the eventing discipline of equestrian sports and the effectiveness of the protective equipment worn. METHODS: Data on all injuries sustained in the cross country phase over fixed obstacles were collected from 54 days of competition from 1992 to 1997. This involved 16,940 rides. RESULTS: Data on a total of 193 injuries were collected, which included two deaths. This represents an injury rate of 1.1%. Head and facial injuries represented the largest group (31%), with one third of these requiring treatment in hospital. All riders were wearing protective helmets and body protectors. CONCLUSIONS: Eventing is one of the most dangerous equestrian sports. Improved protective equipment, which is mandatory for 1999, should reduce the severity of these injuries.  (+info)

Monosynaptic Ia pathways at the cat shoulder. (8/615)

1. The study aimed to describe in cat forelimb and shoulder motoneurones the convergence and projection patterns from large muscle spindle afferents (Ia). In 11 chloralose-anaesthetized cats maximum Ia EPSPs evoked by electrical stimulation of ipsilateral forelimb nerves were obtained in 309 intracellularly recorded alpha-motoneurones. 2. Groups of motor nuclei displayed similar Ia patterns. As in the distal forelimb they were often interconnected by bidirectional pathways, which were used to combine Ia synergistic groups. Three such groups are described at the shoulder. 3. The first group was composed of the main flexors of the scapulo-humeral joint. Regular disto-proximal Ia excitation from elbow extensors (and median afferents) indicates a coupling of flexion in the scapulo-humeral joint to the angular position of the elbow. 4. The second group comprised the outward rotators of the humerus with differentiated Ia convergence onto the different group members. The patterns of Ia excitation received and sent by the group members demonstrate that the outward rotators are incorporated in versatile synergisms and may occupy a central position in steering forelimb movements. 5. The third group was formed by the spinatus muscle and the subscapularis. This arrangement is suggested by the common convergence onto them from the elbow extensors and flexors. The pattern may serve to guide and keep the humeral head in the joint capsule. 6. The Ia synergistic groups receive Ia convergence from muscles acting at distant joints and also project to distant muscles. This is discussed as part of an extended pattern of Ia connections along the forelimb. In this way the shoulder muscles would be incorporated in flexor and extensor oriented synergisms which are needed to co-ordinate the muscular activation along the multijoint forelimb during locomotion. When the shoulder Ia pathways are compared with those in the distal forelimb, organization of the Ia system apparently follows a few basic principles which have adapted to the mechanical situation at the particular joints and their mechanical interaction.  (+info)

Recent research shows that approximately 7.5 million people visited hospitals in America due to shoulder problems. The same research tells us that approximately 4.5 million of this number had a rotator cuff problem. While shoulder injuries can be as a result of daily activities, they can also be caused by athletic activities. Common activities that can cause shoulder injury include gardening, hanging curtains as well as washing walls.

Spring is here and with it comes many of the activities people love to do in the Okanagan Valley.. Often, these activities (such as golfing, cycling, stand-up paddle boarding, gardening, baseball, volleyball, swimming, and tennis to name a few) can cause a dysfunctional or sore shoulder. The shoulder girdle is a complex system. The shoulder joint is a ball-in-socket joint where the ball is larger than the socket, like a golf-ball sitting on a tee. This allows the shoulder to have lots of flexibility. Although having movement is good, the muscles surrounding the shoulder girdle must work together as a close-knit team in order to give the shoulder stability. Commonly, patients complain of sore shoulders during and after performing overhead activities. This often occurs when there is an imbalance in the muscles that control the shoulder girdle causing impingement. If you take your fingers and follow your collarbone to the edge of your shoulder, you will feel a bony prominence at the tip of your ...

Shoulder pain is a common condition that can affect people in all walks of life and during anytime in their lifetime. Pains that occur over the shoulder blade area can be to the large muscle and underlying smaller muscles that have become spastic. Pains that occur under the shoulder blade may signal a warning that the pain is not in the shoulder itself, but can be related to a pain from one of the organs in the body. The shoulder where the pain occurs can give the clue which of the organs are affected and causing the radiating pain into the shoulder. Pain under the left shoulder blade can be a signal that there is a problem with the stomach or in the chest. Pain under the right shoulder blade can be a signal of a gall-bladder inflammation or gallstones. Or it can relate to liver disease, or a problem with the duodenum ...

For patients with frozen shoulders and sciatic pain that are not responding to your treatment protocols, consider visceral manipulation as an adjunct treatment.. In particular, the liver, when dysfunctional, can have a negative impact on the left and right shoulder girdles. Through the fascial attachments of the gastrophrenic and left coronary ligaments, up through the pleurae of the lungs and finally through the suspensory ligaments, a liver lacking in mobility can increase the mechanical load placed upon the muscles of the shoulder girdle.. Neurologically, the gastrophrenic ligament, an extension of the coronary ligament, when restricted, can cause stress upon the diaphragm and hence irritation to the phrenic nerve. Since the phrenic nerve and many of the shoulder muscles share the same C3, 4 and 5 nerve roots, this can lead to irritation of the shoulder muscles resulting in a pathological presentation of the shoulder mechanics.. The sciatic nerve, being the largest in the human body, is most ...
Purpose: The aim of this study is to present muscle patterns observed with the direction of instability in a series of patients presenting with recurrent shoulder instability. Materials and Methods: A retrospective review was carried out on shoulder instability cases referred for fine wire dynamic electromyography (DEMG) studies at a specialist upper limb centre between 1981 and 2003. An experienced consultant clinical neurophysiologist performed dual needle insertion into four muscles (pectoralis major (PM), latissimus dorsi (LD), anterior deltoid (AD) and infraspinatus (IS)) in shoulders that were suspected to have increased or suppressed activation of muscles that could be contributing to the instability. Raw EMG signals were obtained while subjects performed simple uniplanar movements of the shoulder. The presence or absence of muscle activation was noted and compared to clinical diagnosis and direction of instability. Results: A total of 140 (26.6%) shoulders were referred for fine wire ...

Oscar also describes that the middle or lateral deltoid can become overactive or dominate with associated supraspinatus inhibition. This dysfunction can lead to increased superior glide of the humerus and contribute to glenohumeral impingement syndrome. GH impingement leads to supraspinatus injury and the cycle of reciprocal inhibition continues. The anterior deltoid can pull the shoulder into a rounded position, contributing to rounded shoulders and creating an imbalance of the shoulder external rotators and posterior capsule.2. During performance of the shoulder abduction functional screen, an overactive levator scapulae and/or upper trapezius can cause superior movement of the shoulder girdle. Ipsilateral cervical lateral flexion represents a failure of this screen and also suggests overactivity of the levator and upper trap. This repetitive motion can inhibit and decrease the activity of the deltoid.. In chronic shoulder abduction dysfunction, postural findings of deltoid inhibitions can be ...
With both of the handles in each hand, raise your arms straight out from your sides until they are even with your shoulders. The best approach is to maintain your muscle mass while losing fat. To set your shoulders in the right position, draw your shoulders up 2cm, then back 2cm and then down 2cm. Its when the exercise feels impossible to finish. Pause for a few seconds with your arms slightly higher than shoulder height. It helps to improve shoulder mobility.

Shoulder Girdle. You have previous experience about the alignment of the shoulder girdle. Just a reminder to keep the clavicles parallel to the ground and the head in line with the shoulder girdle. If you look at the person sideways, their ear will be right over their shoulder. Another great image from Eric Franklin to keep the front of the shoulder girdle open is to think of big eyelashes eyes at the corocoid process that are wide open. If you collapse your shoulders forward, the eyelashes will get smooshed.. Trapezius. The Trapezius is a key muscle that connects your neck to your shoulders. It is one of the first muscles to get tight under stress, and when it is relaxed it has a beneficial effect on our mental state.

The latissimus dorsi is a stronger shoulder adductor when the shoulder is somewhat externally rotated. It is a stronger shoulder extensor when the shoulder is neither internally or externally rotated. The latissimus dorsi does not extend the shoulder beyond anatomical position (shoulder hyperextension). In strict transverse extension, the latissimus dorsi is weak. Incidentally, the posterior deltoid is strongly involved in both shoulder hyperextension and transverse extension.. The biarticulate latissimus dorsi enters passive insufficiency through the completion of shoulder flexion and abduction when the scapula is more rotated upward, elevated and abducted. The biarticulate latissimus dorsi enters active insufficiency through the completion of shoulder adduction when the scapula is more rotated downward and depressed or through the completion of shoulder extension when the shoulder girdle is more protracted and depressed.. ...

By: Chris Gellert, PT, MMusc & Sportsphysio, MPT, CSCS, AMS. The shoulder is one of the most vulnerable joints in the body due to its vast range of motion and complexity. It is a complex ball and socket joint, uniquely comprised of various connective tissue, supporting structures, including muscles. It is an important joint because functionally, it is involved in most daily and sport activities, such as reaching, lifting, carrying and throwing a ball. Knowledge of the biomechanics of the shoulder can help you with training and aiding in rehabilitation of the shoulder and related injuries.. The shoulder complex involves coordinated movements between the humerus bone and the scapula. The scapula, clavicle, and humerus serve as attachments for most of the muscles in the shoulder. The shoulder is comprised of four primary joints:. ...
With many sports requiring overhead movements that can place the shoulder at the extreme end of its range of motion, its not surprising that shoulder injuries are so common among athletes. For instance, up to 50% of NCAA college football players have some history of shoulder injury, which comprises about 10-20% of total injuries in the sport. When looking at collegiate quarterbacks, one study found that shoulder injuries accounted for more than half of injuries among players in the position. When it comes to sport-related shoulder injuries, these are the three most common (and to complicate matters, they often co-occur):. 1) SLAP (or labrum) tears: Superior (top) Labral tear from Anterior (front) to Posterior (back) tear is a term used to describe a torn piece of cartilage located along the rim of the socket. The labrum adds depth to the cup, which helps to stabilize the ball in the socket. Individuals with a SLAP tear will often report a loss of motion and power, a feeling like their shoulder ...

Shoulder lesions are most commonly observed in sows during the weeks following farrowing. Long periods of lying combined with poor body condition can increase the likelihood of sows developing shoulder sores. The prevalence of shoulder lesions varies greatly depending on farm and sow factors, with anywhere from 10 to 50% of sows being affected. Shoulder lesions, also referred to as shoulder sores or ulcers, typically appear as a circular sore on the upper shoulder.. In sows, shoulder lesions appear over the scapula, where the amount of soft tissue between the skin and bone is insufficient to distribute external pressure. Lying laterally (such as during nursing bouts) puts pressure on this area, and prolonged lying can restrict blood flow and result in localized tissue damage. Shoulder lesions in sows are comparable with pressure ulcers in humans, also known as bed sores. Once they have developed they are difficult to treat, and will often return during the next lactation. In practical terms this ...

The pronator teres is innervated by the median nerve. To stimulate the pronator teres, a signal begins in the precentral gyrus in the brain and goes down through the internal capsule. It continues down the corticospinal tracts through the capsule, midbrain, and pons where it arrives at the medullar pyramids. Once at the pyramids, the corticospinal tracts decussate and the signal goes down the lateral corticospinal tract until it reaches the ventral horns of C5, C6, C7, C8, and T1.[1] The signal then goes through the ventral rami and down the root ganglions of C5, C6, C7, C8, and T1 (which together form the brachial plexus). Next, the signal goes down the median nerve branch of the brachial plexus and stimulates the pronator teres to contract causing the hand to pronate.[2] ...
