  • Deadlift Analysis

    the arms being on the inside of the thighs (4, 10). The narrower stance of the conventional deadlift results in greater forward trunk flexion and therefore, an increased torque about the lumber area (3, 4). Consequently, the wider stance of the sumo deadlift results in a more upright trunk, resulting in greater recruitment of the hip muscles (10). These two styles of deadlifts form the basis for all other variations. Although each variation of deadlift may be associated with specific adaptations, it is evident that they all strengthen the spinal erectors, back, abdominals, forearm muscles, as well as the hip and knee extensors to an extent depending on the style. NOTE: Maybe add in a section about lifting equipment? Think straps, belt, elastic bands and chains. Also, different types of grips, over-over, alternate, under-under. Stiff Legged Deadlift The stiff or straight legged deadlift (SDL/SLDL) specializes in strengthening the lower back and hamstring muscles (2, 7). The setup of the SLDL is similar to the conventional deadlift in that the individual assumes a shoulder width stance with a grip just outside the thighs (2). It is also important that the individual retracts their scapula and keeps their head in a neutral position. Following the setup is the execution of the lift. During the execution, the hips move posteriorly due to hip flexion(7). It is important to keep the legs slightly bent throughout the lift, making sure not to lockout at full extension. While the bar…

  • Examples Of Post-Operative Precautions

    VI. Post-Operative Precautions The first 6 weeks the goal is to protect the repair! Crutches and a brace are used during this time and depending on who performed the repair the brace and crutches may be removed. First 3-5 days the lower extremity (LE) will be immobilized on a rigid brace with knee flexed in 30°- 45°. As a patient you are told to avoid extension of the knee while hip is in flexion. You will be walking with the crutches as early as 24 – 48 hours after the surgery with toe touch…

  • Back Squat Case Study

    importance because it helped to keep subjects in their appropriate position. Kinematic data was retrieved by using a Pro-Reflex Motion Analysis System at 240-Hz. Ground Reaction Force (GRF) was analyzed by a force platform at 1200-HZ, and maximum vertical jump was inferred once the subject lost contact with the ground. Reflective markers were placed on the subjects’ acromion process, great trochanter, lateral femoral condyle, lateral malleolus, and base of 5th metatarsal. The resultant movement…

  • Splint Reflection Paper

    I feel like I would wear my splint more and do more activities if the splint was not pinching the anterior side of my forearm. Also, if my splint was to be shortened the rounded edge would not be stabbing me in the biceps when I performed elbow flexion greater than ninety degrees. I also feel as if the splint needs to be cut down some on the radial side. When donning and doffing the splint I feel like it is too tight of a squeeze for me and the radial side is where I experienced the majority of…

  • Ryan's Mother Case Study

    to dress and undress due to unwanted movements caused by stiffness related to tone. I would demonstrate a tapping method on the triceps in order to release the flexor tone of the biceps making it easier for her to slide on his shirt. I would suggest to Ryan’s mother to roll him from side to side during dressing so there is limited time in a position to become stiff or push back into extension. Positioning Ryan in sideline can make overhead dressing, putting arm in sleeves and bending the hips…

  • Analysis Of Mrs. Ogle's Gait Movement

    pattern is most affected during stance phase. She has a lack of dorsiflexion of her left ankle throughout and increased left knee flexion during most of the stance phases. She has an overall decreased step length which is greatest on her left. Her left heel does not make contact with the floor. These observed deviations indicate that Mrs Ogle has a lack of left dorsiflexion range at her ankle. 1.0 Stance phase 1.1 Initial contact to loading response Mrs Ogle’s heel should be the first thing to…

    to a sitting position. Wheelchair Management/Mobility: Indep with locking breaks. Min Ax1 with removing R leg rest. Pt can maneuver w/c short distances in open areas using his L UE/LE. Ambulation: Pt is min Ax1 with quad cane on an even surface with a step-to gait pattern. Pt presents with an antalgic gait, limited endurance, slow gait speed, narrow BOS, and minimal kyphotic posture. He puts approximately 90% of his BW through the L LE and also puts a significant amount of pressure…

  • The Four Phases Of Long Distance Sprinters And Sprinting

    push off the ground quickly. Hamstrings and quads work at the same time on alternate legs, so both the quads and hamstrings need to toned and elastic to make the sprinter quick when racing. The glutes are maybe one of the largest muscles in the body. The glutes help the sprinter assist in propulsion and helps support the work of the quads and hamstrings. When sprinting the glutes work less than the legs, however; when the glutes are engaged the muscles helps to avoid injury of the leg muscles.…

  • Baseball Swing Movement Analysis

    The launching position consists of the following movements: The abduction of the shoulders and the arms, the backward rotation of the spine, the extension of the writs, and the flexion of the hips (Van Such, 2016). For a right handed batter, the left shoulder joint will be adducted toward the body. The right shoulder joint will be flexed with the elbow up in the air and the scapula is abducting. Abduction occurs with the scapula because the scapula is being pulled away from the midline of the…

  • Backwards Marching Essay

    allow the necessary movements to be performed, such as plantar flexion, extension, and flexion, in order to execute backwards marching properly During the process of backwards marching, one lifts onto their toes in a fluid motion, this requires the use of the ankle joints. The ankle joint, also known as the Talocrural, is located in between the Talus, tibia, and fibula creating a type…
