Perturbation exercises during treadmill walking improve pelvic and trunk motion in older adults-A randomized control trial.

Summary of "Perturbation exercises during treadmill walking improve pelvic and trunk motion in older adults-A randomized control trial."

Most falls among older adults occur while walking. Pelvic and trunk motions are required to maintain stability during walking. We aimed to explore whether training that incorporates unexpected loss of balance during walking that evokes balance recovery reactions will improve pelvic, thorax, and trunk kinematics at different walking speeds.

Trunk motion visual feedback during walking improves dynamic balance in older adults: Assessor blinded randomized controlled trial.

Virtual reality and augmented feedback have become more prevalent as training methods to improve balance. Few reports exist on the benefits of providing trunk motion visual feedback (VFB) during tread...

Associations between trunk postural control in walking and unstable sitting at various levels of task demand.

Trunk postural control (TPC) has been investigated in several populations and tasks. Previous work observed targeted training of TPC via isolated trunk control tasks may improve performance in other a...

Compensatory strategy between trunk-hip kinematics and reaction time following slip perturbation between subjects with and without chronic low back pain.

Compensatory trunk and hip motions following slip perturbations may compromise the control of lumbopelvic movement. However, it is unclear how postural integration of the trunk and hips can be transfe...

Kinetic and kinematic variables affecting trunk flexion during level walking in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis.

Lumbar spinal stenosis causes cauda equina and nerve root compression, resulting in neurological symptoms. Although trunk flexion during level walking may alleviate these symptoms by enabling spinal c...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An activity in which the body advances at a slow to moderate pace by moving the feet in a coordinated fashion. This includes recreational walking, walking for fitness, and competitive race-walking.

Exercises that stretch the muscle fibers with the aim to increase muscle-tendon FLEXIBILITY, improve RANGE OF MOTION or musculoskeletal function, and prevent injuries. There are various types of stretching techniques including active, passive (relaxed), static, dynamic (gentle), ballistic (forced), isometric, and others.

Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.

An ancient Chinese system of postures, exercises, breathing techniques, and meditations designed to improve and enhance the body's QI.

The venous trunk which receives blood from the lower extremities and from the pelvic and abdominal organs.
