OBJECTIVE To determine how normal gait patterns may change as a result of chronic anterior cruciate ligament deficiency and subsequent reconstructive surgery. DESIGN Gait testing of 10 chronic anterior cruciate ligament deficient subjects prior to and 3 months following reconstructive surgery, and 10 uninjured controls. BACKGROUND There is controversy(More)
UNLABELLED OBJECTIVE To determine bilateral lower extremity joint accommodations during gait in anterior cruciate ligament deficient subjects and uninjured controls. DESIGN Gait testing of 10 chronic anterior cruciate ligament deficient subjects prior to and 3 months following reconstructive surgery, and 10 uninjured controls. BACKGROUND It is possible(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effect of unexpected forward perturbations (FP) during gait on lower extremity joint mechanics and muscle Electromyographic (EMG) patterns in healthy adults. The muscles surrounding the hip were found to be most important in maintaining control of the trunk and preventing collapse in response to the FP.(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine how chronic anterior cruciate ligament deficient and surgically repaired subjects react to unexpected forward perturbations during gait as compared to healthy controls. DESIGN Gait testing of 10 chronic anterior cruciate ligament deficient subjects prior to and three months following reconstructive surgery, and 10 uninjured(More)
OBJECTIVE To critically review evidence for the effectiveness of eccentric exercise to treat lower extremity tendinoses. DATA SOURCES Databases used to locate randomized controlled trials (RCTs) included PubMed (1980-2006), CINAHL (1982-2006), Web of Science (1995-2006), SPORT Discus (1980-2006), Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro), and the Cochrane(More)
OBJECTIVE To critically review evidence for the effectiveness of electromyographic biofeedback (EMGB) of the quadriceps femoris muscle in treating various knee conditions. DATA SOURCES Databases used to locate randomized controlled trials included PubMed (1980-2010), Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL, 1995-2007), Web of(More)
OBJECTIVE The authors present a case study involving a 21-year-old male collegiate wrestler diagnosed with cubital tunnel syndrome. BACKGROUND Cubital tunnel syndrome is a condition brought on by an increase in the pressure exerted upon the ulnar nerve at the elbow within the cubital tunnel. The wrestler was diagnosed with cubital tunnel syndrome after 6(More)
Oxygen (O2) use is well established in hospitalized patients with hypoxemia. However, its value in patients without hypoxemia is not well documented. The authors conducted a retrospective study to evaluate the excess use of O2 and the resulting loss of resources. They established criteria for O2 use by faculty consensus. Ninety-six patients (102 admissions)(More)
Continuous quality improvement (CQI) is necessary in maintaining and improving the quality of medical care delivered. However, quality assurance (QA) in the past was performed superficially to meet requirements of the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations and other regulatory agencies. Academic faculty participation in QA activity(More)
