Electromyographic analysis of training to selectively strengthen the lumbar multifidus muscle: effects of different lifting directions and weight loading of the extremities during quadruped upper and
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that QULEL with shoulder and hip abduction is more effective to selectively strengthen LMF on the side, where the lower extremity is lifted.
The effects of a 4-week static stretching programme on the individual muscles comprising the hamstrings
TLDR
The results suggest that SS intervention has chronic effects on reducing hardness of the hamstring muscle components, especially the SM muscle.
Functional performance of female patients more than 6 months after total hip arthroplasty shows greater improvement with weight-bearing exercise than with non-weight-bearing exercise. Randomized
TLDR
WB and NWB home exercise programs were both effective for improving functional performance and muscle strength in women after THA, but the WB exercise was more effective than the NWB exercise for improving sit-to-stand ability and walking endurance.
Relationship Between Balance Recovery From a Forward Fall and Lower-Limb Rate of Torque Development
TLDR
It is suggested that some of the early RTD in the lower limb muscles, but not the maximum isometric torque, can predict the maximum recoverable lean angle.
Association of sagittal spinal alignment with thickness and echo intensity of lumbar back muscles in middle-aged and elderly women.
TLDR
The results suggest that an increase in thoracic kyphosis is associated with a decreases in the mass of the erector spinae muscle, and that a decrease in pelvic anterior inclination is associatedWith a decrease with a increase in the amount of non-contractile tissue within the lumbar multifidus muscle.
Quantity and Quality of the Lower Extremity Muscles in Women with Knee Osteoarthritis.
TLDR
Comparison of lower extremity muscle quantity and quality between individuals with and those without knee osteoarthritis found changes in quality and quantity occurring with knee OA progression differed among muscles, particularly in the vastus medialis.
Association of walking speed with sagittal spinal alignment, muscle thickness, and echo intensity of lumbar back muscles in middle-aged and elderly women
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that a decrease in maximal walking speed is associated with the decrease in lumbar erector spinae muscles thickness rather than spinal alignment in the standing position in middle-aged and elderly women.
Effects of two stretching methods on shoulder range of motion and muscle stiffness in baseball players with posterior shoulder tightness: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
The modified cross-body stretch and modified sleeper stretch are effective for increasing shoulder internal rotation and horizontal adduction ROM and decreasing muscle stiffness of the infraspinatus or teres minor.
Relation between abnormal synergy and gait in patients after stroke
TLDR
Secondarily generated torque was found to be a factor that affects TUG speed, and the ability to generate torque even through abnormal synergy may help for gait ability in subjects after stroke.
The difference in passive tension applied to the muscles composing the hamstrings - Comparison among muscles using ultrasound shear wave elastography.
TLDR
Passive tension applied to semimembranosus is higher than the other muscles when the hamstring muscle is passively elongated, and passive tension applications to the hamstrings increases with anterior tilt of the pelvis.
