Associations of lower limb joint asymmetry with fatigue and disability in people with multiple sclerosis.

Summary of "Associations of lower limb joint asymmetry with fatigue and disability in people with multiple sclerosis."

An early symptom of multiple sclerosis is unilateral weakness, particularly in the lower limbs, which is associated with strength asymmetries. The purpose of this exploratory study was to examine strength asymmetries at the hip, knee, and ankle joints, and to investigate the associations between lower limb strength asymmetries and self-reported fatigue severity and disability in people with multiple sclerosis.

Lower-limb motor-performance asymmetries in English community-level female field hockey players: Implications for knee and ankle injury prevention.

Side-to-side asymmetry of lower-limb motor-performance is associated with increased agility-sport noncontact injury-risk. Left leg preferential use (unilaterality) in hockey may influence lower-limb m...

Deterioration of specific aspects of gait during the instrumented 6-min walk test among people with multiple sclerosis.

Prolonged walking is typically impaired among people with multiple sclerosis (pwMS), however, it is unclear what the contributing factors are or how to evaluate this deterioration. We aimed to determi...

The effects of arm swing amplitude and lower-limb asymmetry on gait stability.

Changes to arm swing and gait symmetry are symptomatic of several pathological gaits associated with reduced stability. The purpose of this study was to examine the relative contributions of arm swing...

Amputation of a lower limb through the sacroiliac joint.

Congenital or acquired asymmetry of the face.

The region of the lower limb in animals, extending from the gluteal region to the FOOT, and including the BUTTOCKS; HIP; and LEG.

Distinct regions of mesenchymal outgrowth at both flanks of an embryo during the SOMITE period. Limb buds, covered by ECTODERM, give rise to forelimb, hindlimb, and eventual functional limb structures. Limb bud cultures are used to study CELL DIFFERENTIATION; ORGANOGENESIS; and MORPHOGENESIS.
