The anatomy of the human cervical region has a special complexity. Ultrasonography is a scanning technique, which has been successfully used to identify and measure the cervical muscle dimensions. The purpose of this study was to detect with the use of real-time ultrasonography the dimensional changes of the human semispinalis capitis muscle (SECM) during isometric cervical extension. Six junior ice hockey players took part in the study. We simultaneously measured the values of estimates, such… CONTINUE READING
