Recent studies indicate that the patients with chronic neck pain present decreased activation and weak of neck muscles, especially deep flexor and extensor muscles. Alterations of deep are...
Patients with heart failure cannot exercise as well as those who do not have heart failure, but the exercise dysfunction is not directly attributable to heart dysfunction. Rather, exercise...
The foot intrinsic muscles are increasingly targeted in foot and ankle rehabilitation. The exercises are often difficult to learn initially. The purpose of the proposed study is to examine...
It is well-known that muscle weakness and deconditioning play an important role in low exercise capacity of patients with HF. Interestingly, not only peripheral muscles are impaired, but a...
In spite of advances in neonatal intensive care allowing the first generation survivors of extreme prematurity to now reach young adulthood, these individuals present with reduced exercise...
Low back muscles exercise reportedly influence the risk of osteoporotic vertebral fractures. The exact relationship between the low back muscles exercise and the incidence of vertebral refractures rem...
This study sought to examin effects of age and tongue exercise on the posterior digastric (opener) and the temporalis (closer). We hypothesized 1) age would result in differing morphological (cross se...
Exercise increases pressure pain thresholds (PPTs) in exercising and nonexercising muscles, known as exercise-induced hypoalgesia (EIH). No studies have investigated the test-retest reliability of cha...
Isometric exercises decrease pressure pain sensitivity in exercising and nonexercising muscles known as exercise-induced hypoalgesia (EIH). No studies have assessed the test-retest reliability of EIH ...
This study investigated the effects of a single exercise session using a device developed for postural muscle training on the function of postural muscles in healthy, pain free individuals. During sta...
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
A measure of the functional capabilities of the heart, lungs and muscles, relative to the demands of specific exercise routines such as running or cycling.
Exercises in which muscles are repeatedly and rapidly stretched, followed by shortening, concentric MUSCLE CONTRACTION (e.g. jumping and rebounding). They are designed to exert maximal force in minimal time by increasing STRETCH REFLEX.
