The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of a dynamic warm up (DWU) with a static-stretching warm up (SWU) on selected measures of power and agility. Thirty cadets at the United States Military Academy completed the study (14 women and 16 men, ages 18-24 years). On 3 consecutive days, subjects performed 1 of the 2 warm up routines (DWU or SWU) or(More)
PURPOSE Previous studies have documented the lack of ultrasound's non-thermal effects on nerve conduction using frequencies of 1 MHz and 870 kHz. The analyses and conclusions were reached, despite only one study incorporating pulsed ultrasound. The purpose of this study was to determine the biophysical effects of continuous wave (CW) and pulsed wave (PW)(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to measure the test-retest reliability of the ulnar F-wave minimum latency (Fmin) in normal adults. A reliable Fmin measure allows clinicians to ascribe changes in latency to true changes in a subject and not merely random daily variation. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Fmin in the Abductor Digiti Minimi muscle(More)
Postural control is essential for normal daily activities. It is also a crucial requirement for athletic events and activities. Deterioration in this postural control mechanism is termed postural instability and results in increased postural sway. Decrements in postural sway have been documented following a 15.5-mile run. It remains to be seen whether a(More)
PURPOSE Quadriceps weakness following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) is prevalent despite intensive rehabilitation. Diminished neuromuscular excitability is one potential factor that may limit muscular recovery following injury or surgery. The H-reflex provides a measure of alpha motorneuron (neuromuscular) excitability in the(More)
PURPOSE/HYPOTHESIS Dental personnel including dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants have been reported as having a high prevalence of upper-extremity musculoskeletal disorders, including carpal tunnel syndrome. Previous research has not involved dental assistant students at the onset of dental training. Therefore, the purpose of this study was(More)
INTRODUCTION We conducted an experimental, single-blind research study to determine the efficacy of using the median nerve compression test (MNCT) to improve the sensitivity and specificity of median nerve motor and sensory latencies for the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). We expected post-MNCT latencies to be prolonged in the CTS group. (More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purposes of this study were to explore reliability of the ulnar F-wave minimum latency (Fmin) and the ulnar distal motor latency (DML) and to contrast those levels of reliability in order to reveal whether physiologic lability is the primary contributor to unwanted variability in Fmin measurements. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Fmin and(More)
Bile phosphatidyl choline from sheep, in contrast to that from nonruminants, contains low levels of the normal range of polyunsaturated fatty acids. A comparison has been made of the composition of bile phosphatidyl cholines from sheep receiving either a control diet, a control diet supplemented with unprotected maize oil, or a control diet supplemented(More)
A mixture of the four major aflatoxins at 0.06 ppm in food supplied to adult boll weevils, Anthonomus grandis, was an effective chemosterilant. INTRODUCTION Certain strains of the fungi Aspergillus flc~rus and A. parasitic-us produce a group of mycotoxic metabolites commonly known as the aflatoxins (Diener and Davis, 1969). The aflatoxins have been studied(More)
