The objectives of this study is to determine the immediate and 10 minutes follow-up effects of a warm-up based on a continous run on a treadmill or the application of a hot-pack in athlete...
The purpose of the study is to investigate the efficacy of a 10-week intervention, using the Nordic Hamstring exercise, on repeated-sprint ability in male sub-elite football players. The p...
A common soft tissue injury in sports involving sprinting and jumping is the hamstring strain. Not much evidence-based research has been carried out on prevention of hamstring strains. ...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of eccentric exercise combined with vibration or cryotherapy in Achilles tendon pathology. The investigators hypothesis is that...
Epi-X is a multicentered randomized controlled clinical trial of chronic lateral epicondylitis with parallel group design and two phases. In the first phase physical exercise treatment is ...
In elite sport, the use of strength testing to establish muscle function and performance is common. Traditionally, isokinetic strength tests have been used, measuring torque during concentric and ecce...
The purpose of the study was to examine the acute effects of different dynamic exercise interventions on hamstring muscle performance. Thirty-six young men with poor hamstring flexibility were randoml...
Fatigue negatively alters dynamic knee control, and the functional hamstring/quadriceps ratio (H/Q) plays an important role in stabilizing the joint. The aim of this study was to investigate the influ...
Infraspinatus muscle atrophy is common in professional volleyball players, but it is unclear whether commonly observed strength and proprioception deficits can be reversed with training. Fifty-four pa...
The development of new strategies to attenuate exercise-induced muscle damage may be helpful for training regimens. The aim of this study was to determine whether a oral formulation of angiotensin Ang...
A group of tendons that attach the HAMSTRING MUSCLES proximally to the PELVIS and to the TIBIA and FIBULA at the KNEE JOINT.
Sensory functions that transduce stimuli received by proprioceptive receptors in joints, tendons, muscles, and the INNER EAR into neural impulses to be transmitted to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Proprioception provides sense of stationary positions and movements of one's body parts, and is important in maintaining KINESTHESIA and POSTURAL BALANCE.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
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 group of muscles in the posterior THIGH area that are involved in connecting the KNEE JOINT and the PELVIS.
