Botulinum Toxin Injection Efficiency

2014-08-27 03:16:58 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to examine the effect of the botulinum toxin injection into muscle tone, strength and mobility with and without muscle exercise effect.

Description

The purpose is also to find out patients subjective symptoms between injections. Hypothesis: Efficiency of the botulinum toxin is more powerful with the muscle exercise before injection.

Effect of exercise order of combined aerobic and resistance training on arterial stiffness in older men.

Arterial stiffness increases with advancing age, and is as an emerging biomarker in the assessment of vascular health. Some studies suggest that high-intensity resistance training increases arterial s...

Resistance training-induced decrease in central arterial compliance is associated with decreased subendocardial viability ratio in healthy young men.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A symptom, not a disease, of a twisted neck. In most instances, the head is tipped toward one side and the chin rotated toward the other. The involuntary muscle contractions in the neck region of patients with torticollis can be due to congenital defects, trauma, inflammation, tumors, and neurological or other factors.

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

On the job training programs for personnel carried out within an institution or agency. It includes orientation programs.

The development by insects of resistance to insecticides.
