  • Specific training of the respiratory muscles is required for singers to take very quick deep breath and sustain their exhalation over many bars of music. (wikipedia.org)
  • Aerobic training typically improves the endurance of respiratory muscles, whereas anaerobic training tends to increase the size and strength of respiratory muscles. (wikipedia.org)
  • arises

  • joints
  • Muscles, bones, and joints provide the principal mechanics for movement, all coordinated by the nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • This triggers signals from the motor cortex that stimulate the respiratory center of the brain stem, in conjunction with feedback from the proprioreceptors in the muscles and joints of the active limbs. (wikipedia.org)
  • front
  • The external intercostal muscles (on the outside of the ribcase) wrap around from the back of the rib almost to the end of the bony part of the rib in front. (yorku.ca)
  • In the front of the ribcase, looking from the bottom of each muscle (i.e., the top of each rib), the muscles go diagonally INWARD. (yorku.ca)
  • Pectoral muscles (colloquially referred to as "pecs") are the muscles that connect the front of the human chest with the bones of the upper arm and shoulder. (wikipedia.org)
  • layer
  • The pectoral fascia is a thin layer of tissue over the pectoralis major, extending toward the latissimus dorsi muscle on the back. (wikipedia.org)
  • anterior
  • The anterior muscles of the arm are the biceps, brachioradialis and brachialis. (twinboro.com)
  • Sampson Handley noted Halsted's observation of the existence of malignant metastasis to the chest wall and breast bone via the chain of internal mammary nodes under the sternum and employed an "extended" radical mastectomy that included the removal of the lymph nodes located there and the implantation of radium needles into the anterior intercostal spaces. (wikipedia.org)
  • The differential diagnosis of a positive Carnett's test includes hernias, nerve entrapment syndrome, irritation of intercostal nerve roots, anterior cutaneous nerve entrapment, rib-tip syndrome, myofascial pain, trigger points and rectus sheath hematomas. (wikipedia.org)
  • The rectus abdominis muscle, also known as the "abdominals" or "abs", is a paired muscle running vertically on each side of the anterior wall of the human abdomen, as well as that of some other mammals. (wikipedia.org)
  • respiratory
  • The disorder causes flaccid paraplegia (impairment of motor function in lower extremities), total areflexia (below normal or absence of reflexes) of the pelvic limbs and anus, loss of deep pain perception caudal (toward the coccyx, or tail) to the site of spinal cord injury, muscular atrophy (wasting away of muscle tissue), depressed mental state, and respiratory difficulty due to intercostal (muscles that run between the ribs) and diaphragmatic paralysis. (wikipedia.org)
  • relax
  • A good vocal warm up will relax the jaw, while activating the lips and the tongue in a variety of exercises to stretch the muscles and prepare for the more defined vocal articulation that is required when singing or acting. (wikipedia.org)
  • thorax
  • Depending on the Neurological Level of Impairment (NLI), the muscles responsible for expanding the thorax, which facilitate inhalation, may be affected. (wikipedia.org)
  • structures
  • Vocal articulation is controlled by a variety of tissues, muscles, and structures (place of articulation), but can be basically understood as the effects of the lips, the teeth, and the tip of the tongue. (wikipedia.org)
  • dissection
  • It was also thought, at that time, that it was anatomically impossible to do a complete axillary dissection without removing the pectoralis muscle. (wikipedia.org)
  • axillary
  • Radical mastectomy involves removing all the breast tissue, overlying skin, the pectoralis muscles, and all the axillary lymph nodes. (wikipedia.org)
  • neck
  • Stretches of the abdomen, back, neck, and shoulders are important to avoid tension, which influences the sound of the voice through constriction of the larynx and/or breathing muscles. (wikipedia.org)
  • lower
  • First, the inferior epigastric artery and vein (or veins) run superiorly on the posterior surface of the rectus abdominis, enter the rectus fascia at the arcuate line, and serve the lower part of the muscle. (wikipedia.org)
  • Its origin is at the lower margin of the teres major muscle and a continuation of the brachial vein. (wikipedia.org)
  • commonly
  • Most commonly, a strain causes microscopic tears within the muscle, but occasionally, in severe injuries, the muscle can rupture from its attachment. (wikipedia.org)
  • extends
  • The rectus abdominis is a long flat muscle, which extends along the whole length of the front of the abdomen, and is separated from its fellow of the opposite side by the linea alba. (wikipedia.org)
  • function
  • Relatively few studies have researched the effects of these exercises on muscle function and even fewer have studied their effect on singing-specific outcomes. (wikipedia.org)
  • If the NLI is such that it affects some of the ventilatory muscles, more emphasis will then be placed on the muscles with intact function. (wikipedia.org)
  • Damage to this system affects specific functions of the body, primarily relating to the function of muscles. (wikipedia.org)
  • injury
  • They take the places of centre Iosia Soliola who is out for three to four weeks with an ankle problem and wing Ade Gardner who has and intercostal muscle injury and is out of contention for six to eight weeks. (wikipedia.org)
  • example
  • For example, the intercostal muscles receive their innervation from T1-T11, and if any are damaged, more emphasis will need to be placed on the unaffected muscles which are innervated from higher levels of the CNS. (wikipedia.org)
  • deep
  • There are also deep muscles of the forearm that help to pronate (palm down) and supinate (palm up) the hand. (twinboro.com)
  • body
  • Muscles all over the body are used when singing/acting. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tensing of the rectus abdominis causes the muscle to expand between each tendinous intersection, resulting in the characteristic six or eight pack observed in individuals with low body fat. (wikipedia.org)
  • skin
  • The dorsal roots are afferent fascicles, receiving sensory information from the skin, muscles, and visceral organs to be relayed to the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • large
  • Stretching helps to activate and prepare the large muscle groups that take care of balance and posture, and the smaller muscle groups that are directly involved with breathing and facial articulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • terms
  • IGF-1 is currently on the World Anti-Doping Agency's prohibited list due to how it gives athletes an unfair advantage in terms of building strength and muscle mass. (7) However, it's still legal to use supplements that may provide IGF-1 or similar effects. (deerantlervelvet101.com)
  • In reconstructive surgery terms, it is a Mathes and Nahai Type III muscle with two dominant pedicles. (wikipedia.org)
  • further
  • Tendinous intersections (incriptiones tendinae) further subdivide each rectus abdominis muscle into a series of smaller false muscle bellies. (wikipedia.org)
  • potential
