The Effect High Velocity Low Amplitude Hip Mobilization on Strength in Subjects With Lower Extremity Pathology

Introduction: Lower extremity weakness associated with musculoskeletal pathology can cause activity limitations. Physical therapy intervention in the form of exercise is commonly directed at improving muscular performance, however, neuromuscular adaptations may limit the effectiveness of traditional strengthening exercises. Manual therapy techniques have been used as a disinhibitory intervention to increase muscle activation and strength before participating in strengthening ex...

Aging is characterized by functional losses among which, the related to mobility and balance may be highlighted. Regular physical activity, including muscle strengthening exercises, is beneficial to a healthy elderly. Thus, this study aimed to verify the influence of 8 weeks-program of lower limbs strengthening exercises in the balance and functional mobility of physically active elderly. We evaluated 18 women, with ages between 61 and 80 years. Balance assessment was performed...

Early Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation For Quadriceps Muscle Activation Deficits Following Total Knee Replacement

The purpose of this study is to determine whether early intervention with neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) for muscle strengthening immediately after total knee replacement (TKR) is more effective than voluntary exercise alone in countering changes in quadriceps muscle activation, force production, and function in older adults.

The Use of Repetitive Magnetic Stimulation for Strength Training of the Quadriceps Muscle

We intend to use repetitive magnetic stimulation to the quadriceps muscle to try to improve strength and improve the metabolic function of the muscle.

The Effect of Muscle Strengthening Associated With Neuromuscular Stimulus in Patients With Patellofemoral Pain During Negotiating Stairs

Assess pain, function, hip and knee strength and kinematics of trunk and lower limbs during ascent and descent stairs after the addition of neuromuscular training to hip muscle strengthening.

Vein Fitness System vs Compressive Therapy for Venous Ulcers: a Bayesian Adaptive Trial

The objective of this Bayesian Adaptive trial is to compare a control group versus a comprehensive ulcer healing protocol. The latter involves a combination of compressive therapy, miokinetic drainage and muscle strengthening for the entire lower extremity pump among patients with lower extremity venous ulcers. The investigators hypothesized that the combined therapy will have a higher closure rate as well as lower time to closure.

Blood Pressure Changes During Moderate Intensity Strength Training in Aortic Stent-graft Patients

Patients with an aortic stent graft are recommended to do muscle strengthening exercise as part of their rehabilitation. But, as excess blood pressure pose a risk to the integrity of the stent graft, high intensity muscle strengthening exercise may potentially be detrimental, and hence moderate intensity muscle strengthening is recommended. However, the blood pressure changes during moderate intensity strengthening exercises are unknown, and this study aims to quantify these am...

Comparison of Different Quadriceps Femoris Isometric Strengthening Methods

Background:It has been reported in previous studies that more motor units are fired with electrical stimulation than voluntary muscle contraction, and even high intensity currents provide 10-30% more contractions than voluntary muscle contraction. Objective:This study was planned to compare the effectiveness of high voltage pulsed galvanic (HVPG) stimulation, Russian current and isometric exercise on quadriceps femoris (QF) isometric muscle strength in healthy young women. ...

Calf Muscle Strength and Standing Efficiency in Children With Spastic Diplegia

It will be hypothesized that strengthening the calf muscles will improve standing efficiency in children with spastic diplegia.

The Influence of Hip Strengthening Exercises on Walking Patterns and Muscle Strength in Persons With Knee Osteoarthritis

The purpose of this study is to determine the influence of a home program of exercises for the hip muscles which support the pelvis on walking patterns and hip muscle strength in people with knee osteoarthritis. Following a hip muscle strengthening program, we hypothesize that participants with knee osteoarthritis will demonstrate decreased loading at the knee joint during walking and greater strength of the hip muscles.

An Exercise and Nutritional Intervention for Deconditioned Older Adults

In this study we will evaluate whether the addition of a formal lower extremity resistance exercise training program and/or a nutritional supplement will improve the functional recovery of older adult veterans participating in a geriatric rehabilitation program for deconditioning. Specifically, subjects admitted to a geriatric inpatient rehabilitation program with a diagnosis of deconditioning will be randomly assigned to one of four groups; 1) Control/standard rehabilitation p...

Impact of a Lower Extremity Amputation Pathway Protocol in Dysvascular Patients

The LEAP protocol is a prospective cohort study of dysvascular patients designed to determine whether implementation of a multi-disciplinary lower extremity amputation protocol in the peri-operative period can shorten post-operative length of stay in patients undergoing trans-tibial or trans-femoral amputations. A consecutive sample of patients diagnosed with peripheral vascular disease and/or diabetes requiring major lower extremity amputation will be enrolled in the study and...

Quantifying Quadriceps Atrophy Following Tibial Plateau Fracture

This study will quantify and examine the extent to which the quadriceps femoris muscle group atrophies following tibial plateau fractures and the length of time that atrophy affects function. The study will also look at the effects of tibial plateau fractures on the quadriceps muscle and the effect this atrophy has on functional outcome. Quadriceps atrophy will be measured both clinically and by using MRI scans taken pre-operatively, 3 months post operatively, and 1 year post-o...


Comparison of Exercise Therapies for Patellofemoral Pain

Patellofemoral Pain (PFP) is a common knee problem, primarily affecting adolescents and young adults. PFP is characterised by significant retropatellar and/or peripatellar pain and impairment of function and quality of daily life. Exercise therapy is unequivocally recommended as a core component of the management of PFP. Different exercise types (e.g. quadriceps strengthening, hip strengthening and functional/neuromuscular exercises) have been investigated, with knee and hip st...

Effectiveness of Group Walking Sessions for Increasing Activity in People With Peripheral Arterial Disease (The Group Oriented Arterial Leg Study [GOALS])

Lower extremity peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a disease in which fatty build-up, or plaque, accumulates in the arteries of the legs. People with lower extremity PAD often experience leg pain while walking, which is caused by reduced blood flow to the legs. Regular walking has significant benefits for people with blood flow problems in their legs, but previous studies have shown that most men and women with PAD do not walk for exercise on a regular basis. A group home-bas...

Anterior cruciate ligament injury programs are less successful in women's basketball than soccer players, yet the reason for this discrepancy is unknown. Thus, this study will recruit high school aged girl's basketball and soccer players, randomized teams into control and experimental groups, administer an ACL injury prevention program in the experimental group and compare the two groups on their lower extremity biomechanics before and after completion of the program. Biomechan...

DRA and Core Strengthening

This study will prospectively measure the effectiveness of a core strengthening program on reducing the inter-rectus distance (IRD) and abdominal wall muscle contraction in postpartum women with diastasis rectus abdominus (DRA).

Use of Glutamine for Recovery Muscle Strength

After an Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction by surgery, the most important muscle of the knee, called quadriceps femoral, loses strength in more than 60% of cases, which if not corrected can progress to osteoarthritis in up to 80% of patients, compromising their quality of life. The main treatment for loss of muscle strength in these patients is rehabilitation which includes strength and endurance exercises.However, in some cases, amino acids such as Glutamine (Gl...
