Summary of "Differences in violin fixation force and muscle activity among violinists with and without complaints of the neck shoulder region."

The aim of this study is to determine the relationship between complaints of the neck and shoulder region, the jaw-shoulder violin fixation force, and the activity of the neck and shoulder muscles in violinists.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition characterized by pain in or near the lateral humeral epicondyle or in the forearm extensor muscle mass as a result of unusual strain. It occurs in tennis players as well as housewives, artisans, and violinists.

The amount of force generated by MUSCLE CONTRACTION. Muscle strength can be measured during isometric, isotonic, or isokinetic contraction, either manually or using a device such as a MUSCLE STRENGTH DYNAMOMETER.

The rotational force about an axis that is equal to the product of a force times the distance from the axis where the force is applied.

Condition in which no acceleration, whether due to gravity or any other force, can be detected by an observer within a system. It also means the absence of weight or the absence of the force of gravity acting on a body. Microgravity, gravitational force between 0 and 10 -6 g, is included here. (From NASA Thesaurus, 1988)

The state of activity or tension of a muscle beyond that related to its physical properties, that is, its active resistance to stretch. In skeletal muscle, tonus is dependent upon efferent innervation. (Stedman, 25th ed)
