• knee
  • CONCLUSIONS: This mini-invasive operation for the severely arthrofibrotic knee can be used to increase the range of motion and enhance functional outcome. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Corticosteroids decreased the prevalence of fever, lowered visual analog pain scores, and improved knee motion. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The bi-articular antagonist muscles' co-contraction around the knee joint during the squat lifting and the eccentric co-contraction of the gastrocnemius and the biceps femoris were found important for maintaining the straight leg during the stoop lifting. (nih.gov)
  • In conclusion, the knee extension which is prominent kinematics during the squat lifting was produced by the contributions of the kinetic factors from the hip and ankle joints(extensor moment and power generation) and the lumbar extension which is prominent kinematics during the stoop lifting could be produced by the contributions of the knee joint kinetic factors(flexor moment, power absorption, bi-articular muscle function). (nih.gov)
  • The articular disks of the knee-joint are called menisci because they only partly divide the joint space. (wikipedia.org)
  • injuries
  • Care was given to elderly, adults and infants for Orthopedic diseases benign and malignant and for injuries ranging from sports accidents to war casualties including rehabilitation of amputees. (wikipedia.org)
  • recurrent
  • A combination of certain factors may predispose to some form of FAI, predominantly, a marginal developmental hip abnormality together with environmental factors such as activities involving recurrent motion of the legs within a supraphysiologic range. (wikipedia.org)
  • Recurrent lifting and overhead motions are at risk for rotator cuff tears. (wikipedia.org)
  • transverse
  • CONCLUSION: Our motion analysis study found the Aspen collar to be superior to the other collars when measuring restriction of movement of the cervical spine in all planes, particularly the sagittal and transverse planes, while the Aspen Vista was the least effective collar. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Joint
  • In this study, kinematics and kinetics of the lower extremity joint and the lumbar lordosis during two different symmetrical lifting techniques(squat and stoop) were examined using the three-dimensional motion analysis. (nih.gov)
  • Correlation coefficient was calculated to explain the role of lower limb joint motion in relation to the lumbar lordosis. (nih.gov)
  • Most rehabilitation programs combine efforts to protect the joint with muscle strengthening and range of motion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI), or hip impingement syndrome, may affect the hip joint in young and middle-aged adults and occurs when the ball shaped femoral head rubs abnormally or does not permit a normal range of motion in the acetabular socket. (wikipedia.org)
  • Joint effusion and limited range of motion are common associated features. (wikipedia.org)
  • Note that the degrees of freedom of a joint is not the same as the same as joint's range of motion. (wikipedia.org)
  • The three-joint complex that results is sometimes referred to as the "articular triad. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is the region known as the 'neutral zone', which is the motion region of the joint where the passive osteoligamentous stability mechanisms exert little or no influence. (wikipedia.org)
  • physiological
  • A 3D motion analysis study comparing the effectiveness of cervical spine orthoses at restricting spinal motion through physiological ranges. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The physiological range of motion in the three planes was analysed using the Qualisys Track Manager System. (biomedsearch.com)
  • A functional spinal unit (FSU) (or motion segment) is the smallest physiological motion unit of the spine to exhibit biomechanical characteristics similar to those of the entire spine. (wikipedia.org)
  • During passive physiological movement of the FSU, motion occurs in this region against minimal internal resistance. (wikipedia.org)
  • continuous passiv
  • Once the immobilization period has ended, physical therapy involves continuous passive motion (CPM) and/or low impact activities, such as walking or swimming. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgery
  • These erosions were between 5 and 10 mm in depth and became apparent at an average of 15 months (range, 6 to 24 months) following surgery. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The patient's mean age at surgery was 42 +/- 8 years (range 32-58 years), and the mean follow-up was 10 +/- 6 years (range 2-18 years). (biomedsearch.com)
  • All stems appeared radiographically stable and one stem was graded nonintegrated but stable.Five patients had revision surgery: one on the femoral side (for posttraumatic fracture) and four on the acetabular side.Considering stem revision for aseptic loosening as the end point, survivorship was 100% (range, 95.4%-99.9%) at 10 years. (nih.gov)
  • limits
  • Unlike some other rheumatological conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, laboratory findings are usually within normal ranges or limits. (wikipedia.org)
  • consists
  • Within the total range of passive motion of any FSU, the typical load-displacement curve consists of 2 regions or 'zones' that exhibit very different biomechanical behavior. (wikipedia.org)
  • This stress consists of repeating the same shoulder motions frequently, such as overhead throwing, rowing, and weightlifting. (wikipedia.org)
  • Analysis
  • While they lifted boxes weighing 5, 10 and 15 kg by both squat and stoop lifting techniques, their motions were captured and analyzed using the 3D motion analysis system which was synchronized with two forceplates and the electromyographic system. (nih.gov)
  • stability
  • It is a region in which a small load causes a relatively large displacement.The 'elastic zone' is the remaining region of FSU motion that continues from the end of the neutral zone to the point of maximum resistance (provided by the passive osteoligamentous stability mechanism), thus limiting the range of motion. (wikipedia.org)
  • time
  • Mean activity time was 1.2 s, with ranges of: 0.8-2.2, 0.9-1.6 and 0.9-1.8 s for the front, wide and reverse pull-ups respectively. (nih.gov)
  • provide
  • The longer forelimbs and dorsally situated scapulae provide a broad range of motion which would enable suspensory below-branch behavior and proficiency in reaching food during foraging. (wikipedia.org)
  • usually
  • Range of motion can usually be restored by treating the affected area with heat and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in addition to light stretching and or a disciplined physical therapy program. (wikipedia.org)
  • years
  • Considering stem revision for aseptic loosening as the end point, survivorship was 100% (range, 95.4%-99.9%) at 10 years. (nih.gov)
