BACKGROUND Musculoskeletal symptoms limit adherence to exercise interventions for individuals with type 2 diabetes. People with diabetes may be susceptible to tendinopathy due to chronically elevated blood glucose levels. Therefore, we aimed to investigate this potential association by systematically reviewing and meta-analysing case-control,(More)
Biomechanical models predict that recruitment of gluteus maximus (GMax) will exert a compressive force across the sacroiliac joint (SIJ), yet this muscle requires morphologic assessment. The aims of this study were to document GMax's proximal attachments and assess their capacity to generate forces including compressive force at the SIJ. In 11 embalmed(More)
STUDY DESIGN Biomechanical experiment. OBJECTIVE The aims of the present study were to test the effect of fascial tension on lumbar segmental axial rotation and lateral flexion and the effect of the angle of fascial attachment. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Tension in the middle layer of lumbar fascia has been demonstrated to affect mechanical properties(More)
STUDY DESIGN A cross-sectional, community-based study. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between structural features of the thoracolumbar fascia and low back pain and disability. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The thoracolumbar fascia plays a role in stabilization of the spine by transmitting tension from the spinal and(More)
CONTEXT Lateral epicondylalgia, pain at the lateral elbow, is commonly associated with extensor carpi radialis brevis tendinopathy. The radial head, which abuts the extensor tendons and is elliptical in shape, may affect the extensor tendons during pronation of the forearm. Cadaverous studies have shown that the radial head may act as a cam in pronation, to(More)
