TY - JOUR. T1 - The cardiopulmonary system and movement dysfunction. AU - Peel, Claire. PY - 1996/1/1. Y1 - 1996/1/1. N2 - Physical therapy primary involves the identification and treatment of problems related to movement. Movement dysfunction usually is attributed to impairments of the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal systems. The cardiopulmonary system plays an important role in movement because of its function of transporting oxygen to skeletal muscle. Abnormalities of the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems can produce limitations in physical function. The purposes of this article are to describe the steps involved in the transfer of oxygen from atmospheric air to skeletal muscles and to provide examples of problems that can occur with each step of the process. Common signs and symptoms of potential problems involving the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems also will be discussed.. AB - Physical therapy primary involves the identification and treatment of problems related to movement. ...

Systems and methods for treating movement disorders using cortical stimulation. In one embodiment, a method for treating movement disorders comprises determining a site at the cortex of the brain of a patient related to a movement disorder of an afflicted body part. The site can be determined by obtaining a representation of neural activity occurring in the cortex of the patient and correlating an area of neural activity with the afflicted body part. The method can also include applying neural stimulation, such as electrical or magnetic waveforms, directly to the site.
The Bluegrass Regional Movement Disorders Symposium will bring together leaders in Movement disorders from Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio and Indiana. The event will be an excellent opportunity to learn about new developments in Movement disorders and is designed for primary care providers, internists, geriatricians, general neurologists, and physicians in training and others in the health profession who will be exposed to patients with Parkinson disease or other movement disorders. The goal of this course is to provide an update on diagnosis and management on the most common movements disorders encountered in practice including Parkinsons disease, Essential tremor, dystonia and functional (psychogenic) movement disorders.
1. Stiff man syndrome.. Several movement disorders are of particular interest to the neurosurgeon. Most are diagnosed by the history of onset and progression and by the characteristics of the involuntary movements or abnormality in muscle tone. The etiologies and pathophysiologies of many movement disorders are not known, but since most movement disorders involve the extrapyramidal system, surgical management has, for the most part, focused on neurological structures constituting that system. As a rule, surgical therapy should not be considered until medical management has been exhausted. With a single exception, however, medical treatment of movement disorders is nonspecific and generally inadequate, and severely disabled patients may be referred early to the neurosurgeon. A knowledge of the indications and shortcomings of surgical management is necessary to advise those patients appropriately. Since there are many movement disorders, most of which do not lend themselves to surgical ...

Movement disorders are present in a subgroup of patients with schizophrenia prior to exposure to antipsychotic treatment, and may have implications for treatment response and outcome. As part of the Hong Kong First-Episode Psychosis Study, patients were assessed with the PANSS, Simpson-Angus, Barnes Akathisia and AIMS scales at presentation. We identified nine patients with movement disorders prior to any treatment. These patients and a comparison group of 36 patients with no movement disorder prior to treatment were reassessed at two later time points (mean 8 and 26 weeks later). At presentation, patients with movement disorders had higher negative symptom factor scores (0-6 scoring, 7 items, mean 14.6 vs. 9.3, p = 0.03). At the second and third assessments, all patients were being treated with antipsychotic medication (mean doses 438 and 302 mg CPZ equivalents), with no difference between groups at either time point. Among patients with movement disorders prior to treatment, these resolved in ...

The Movement Disorders Society (MDS) published the English new Unified Parkinsons Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS) as the official benchmark scale for Parkinsons disease (PD) in 2008. We aimed to validate the Hebrew version of the MDS-UPDRS, explore its dimensionality and compare it to the original English one.The MDS-UPDRS questionnaire was translated to Hebrew and was tested on 389 patients with PD, treated at the Movement Disorders Unit at Tel-Aviv Medical Center. The MDS-UPDRS is made up of four sections. The higher the score, the worst the clinical situation of the patient is. Confirmatory and explanatory factor analysis were applied to determine if the factor structure of the English version could be confirmed in the Hebrew version.The Hebrew version of the MDS-UPDRS showed satisfactory clinimetric properties. The internal consistency of the Hebrew-version was satisfactory, with Cronbachs alpha values 0.79, 0.90, 0.93, 0.80, for parts 1 to 4 respectively. In the confirmatory factor ...
My research is primarily focused on using a vast array of bioinformatic and computational approaches (including machine learning) to analyse large-scale -omics data to further our understanding of the genomics of Parkinsons disease, dystonia and other movement disorders. By integrating genetic data (whole genome/exome, GWAS and/or rare variant genotype data) with brain expression, regulatory data etc. the main aim of my lab is to identify novel variants and/or genes associated with disease causality or disease susceptibility. My lab has a very close working relationship with the Movement Disorders Clinic, the Neurogenetics Clinic and the Parkinsons Disease and Movement Disorders Center Biorepository at Northwestern Medicine where we work together with clinicians, patients and their families to investigate the genetics of disease segregating in families seen at the clinics through the assessment of whole genome/exome data. This close connection with the clinic allows my lab to identify ...
Movement disorders are neurological syndromes where there may be excess of movement or a paucity of movement that is not connected to weakness, paralysis of spasticity of the muscles. Movement disorders commonly affect the speed, fluency or smoothness, quality, and ease of movement.

Parkinsons disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that is characterized by the loss of dopamine-producing neurons in the substantia nigra region of the brain. There is also a simultaneous loss of norepinephrine-producing neurons in a region called the locus coeruleus. Administration of methyl phenyl tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) to laboratory animals is a common model for Parkinsons disease; however, MPTP does not cause the motor deficits seen in humans with Parkinsons disease. NIEHS-supported investigators tested mice to determine whether the loss of norepinephrine neurons was necessary for the motor deficits seen in Parkinsons disease. They used transgenic mice that totally lack norepinephrine altogether. The researchers detected no motor deficits in control mice treated with MPTP - despite an 80 percent reduction in the number of dopamine-producing cells. On the other hand, the norepinephrine-lacking mice exhibited motor deficits in most tests, along with other movement disorders, ...

What makes Parkinsons disease distinctive from other movement disorders is that cell loss occurs in a very specific region of the brain called the substantia nigra (sub-STAN-she-uh NYE-gruh). The nerve cells, or neurons, in this region actually appear dark under a microscope (substantia nigra is Latin for "black substance").. Those dark neurons produce a specific type of neurotransmitter (a chemical messenger that allows neurons to communicate) called dopamine. The neurotransmitter dopamine helps to regulate movement. This loss of dopamine is the reason that many treatments for Parkinsons Disease are intended to increase dopamine levels in the brain. ...
Movement analysis of infants body parts is momentous for the early detection of various movement disorders such as cerebral palsy. Most existing techniques are either marker-based or use wearable sensors to analyze the movement disorders. Such techniques work well for adults, however they are not effective for infants as wearing such sensors or markers may cause discomfort to them, affecting their natural movements. This paper presents a method to help the clinicians for the early detection of movement disorders in infants. The proposed method is marker-less and does not use any wearable sensors which makes it ideal for the analysis of body parts movement in infants. The algorithm is based on the deformable part-based model to detect the body parts and track them in the subsequent frames of the video to encode the motion information. The proposed algorithm learns a model using a set of part filters and spatial relations between the body parts. In particular, it forms a mixture of part-filters ...

Movement disorders are disorders due to neurological pathology affecting the fine muscular movements of the body and interfere with their quality and quantity".. The basal nuclei control our muscular movements by influencing the cerebral cortex. It assists in regulation of the voluntary movements and the learning of the motor skills. Basal nuclei influence the skilled cortical motor activities e.g. motor activities we use in writing the letters of the alphabets, drawing a diagram, passing a football, even using the vocal cords in talking and singing and using the eyes muscles when looking at an object. The basal nuclei not only influence the execution of a particular movement but also prepare for the movements.. Thus, any disorder in the basal nuclei leads to movement disorders. These are of two types, namely ...
Methods and systems for treating movement disorders are disclosed. A method in accordance with one embodiment can include determining that the movement disorder affects the patients gait, oral functioning, and/or other functioning, and applying electrical stimulation proximate to the interhemispheric fissure, the Sylvian fissure, or between the two fissures, respectively. In another embodiment, the method can include selecting at least one neural process from among a plurality of processes sequentially carried out by a patient to cause a muscle movement in the patient (e.g., a planning process, an initiation process, and an execution process), and applying electrical stimulation to a location of the patients brain associated with the at least one neural process.
Techniques for stimulating the brain to treat movement disorders resulting in abnormal motor behavior by means of an implantable signal generator and electrode. A sensor is used to detect the symptoms resulting from the motion disorder. A microprocessor algorithm analyzes the output from the sensor in order to regulate the stimulation delivered to the brain.

Physicians in the Constellation of Care: In my case, my Internist helped me navigate the various things that were occurring over the past few years (described in an earlier posting). I am not a physician but I am also no dummy. When I was referred to Neurology for a consult, I had done enough internet-sleuthing and had listened carefully to my Internist about what could be going on with my movement dysfunction. The first visit with my Neurologist was simply amazing. He listened, he was supportive, and he gave me the good news/bad news speech. Next, he presented to me various treatment options/strategies, and in a very reassuring tone, he said hed be here for me long-term. Paramount to my interactions with both my Internist and Neurologist were their willingness to listen and communicate effectively. For me, it was also key to accurately portray what my symptoms were, and to carefully listen and engage them each in honest dialogue (asking great/good/mediocre questions but asking questions ...

If you googled physiotherapy, Im certain the words sports and massage would pop up. That was exactly my opinion of Physiotherapy before I started my studies.. Id like to think that everybody knows what we do, but for those of you who dont, heres the easiest description that I could think of.. Physiotherapists use our clinical reasoning (which I call my detective skills) to assess and diagnose a large variety of conditions and movement dysfunction. Once we figured out the source of the problem (the prime suspect), we use different tools in our tool box to manage and treat it.. For Instance, if you came to us with neck pain, we would then figure out where its coming from and treat it using different techniques. On that note, I feel that it is my job to inform you that massage is not the ONLY tool in our imaginary tool box. We have many, MANY techniques that we can use.. Once the pain is gone (or at least manageable), we then try to empower you with tools of your own so that you can ...

Neurodegenerative diseases represent one of the greatest challenges of our aging society. However, investigation into these diseases is made particularly difficult due to the limited availability of human brain tissue. Scientists from the Life & Brain Research Center and Neurology Clinic of Bonn University have now taken a roundabout path: They reprogrammed skin cells from patients with a hereditary movement disorder into so-called induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) and obtained functional nerve cells from them. They subsequently decoded how the disease arises. Their results have now been published in the specialist periodical Nature.
