Which Way Do You Roll? Understanding Pronation and Supination
If you have frequent problems with your feet, especially if you're a runner, you may want to see a podiatrist for a gait evaluation. It's possible your feet roll to one side or the other, and this can lead to several different foot ailments. If your foot rolls to the inside the condition is called overpronation. If it rolls to the outside, it is called oversupination. Here is a look at how these two gait abnormalities differ and how…

Hip bursitis is a common problem in athletes. It causes pain in the hip and on the outside of the upper thigh. The bursa is a sac filled with fluid that allows a joint in the body to move smoothly. If the bursa becomes inflamed it can be very painful for a person when moving the joint. Athletes who participate in sports that involve a lot of movement and running normally can see this injury as a result.
Anatomy Of The Foot
There are many different parts of the foot, for example one is the forefoot which contains the five toes and the five longer bones known as the metatarsals. The feet are flexible structures of bones, joints, muscles, and soft tissues that let us stand upright and perform activities like walking, running, and jumping. The other parts of the feet are the following. The midfoot which is a pyramid-like collection of bones that form the arches of the…
Flat bones are bones whose principal function is either extensive protection or the provision of broad surfaces for muscular attachment, the outer one is thick and tough; the inner is thin, dense, and brittle, and hence is termed the vitreous (glass-like) table. It helps the body by protect. Flat bones are bones whose principal function is either extensive protection or the provision of broad surfaces for muscular attachment. A sporting example is heading a football because the skull…
Cast or Splint Care, Adult
Casts and splints are supports that are worn to protect broken bones and other injuries. For instance, a cast may hold a bone still and in the correct position while it heals. Casts and splints may also help ease pain, swelling, and muscle spasms.
A cast is a hardened support usually made of fiberglass or plaster. It is custom-fit to the body and offers more protection than a splint. It cannot be taken on and off. A splint is a type of soft support, usually made from…
pressure on the lateral portion of the foot, due to its abnormal positioning.
• Excessive swelling bilaterally does not fit comfortably into orthopedic footwear.
• Excessive clawing of all digits bilaterally.
• Prominent dorsal MTP joints and styloid bilaterally.
• Varus positioning of both feet (left > right)
• Valgus rearfoot
• Forefoot equinus foot position = excessive pressure at the ball of foot
• Bilateral low arched foot.
the pelvis anteriorly.
This muscle is only muscle group in human body with direct attachment to the spine, the pelvis and the femur. Therefore it has potential to influence, and influenced by movement at both of the spine and hip joints.

The gluteus maximus muscle is the one of the largest muscle in the gluteal region and it covers most of the other gluteal muscles. It is quadrangular in shape and has a broad origin at…
Genus Dysteria (Huxley, 1857)
Synonyms: Aegyria Ehrenberg, 1838; Ervilia Dujardin, 1841
This genus was first reported by Huxley in 1857.
It is a member of class Phyllopharyngea shows characters such as ciliated stage with somatic kineties mostly as monokinetids that each have a lateral kinetodesmal fibril, a reduced or absent, transverse microtubular ribbon.
This genus belongs to subclass Phyllopharyngia show characters such as trophonts free-swimming, may be sessile but usually not…
posterior cruciate ligament is the strongest ligament in the knee joint and helps with stability. Once the posterior cruciate ligament is torn or stretched, it loses its stability. There are many ligaments that make up the knee joint, also known as a hinge type joint which perform tasks such as flexion and extension. The tibiofemoral and patellofemoral are joints of the knee which aid in flexion and extension of the knee. The tibiofemoral joint adds angle and assists with knee extension. The…
Skeletal remains from Lofkënd, Corinth, Epidamnus, and Apollonia were examined to determine if the null hypothesis of changes in physical activity levels, as evidenced by osteoarthritis in human skeletons is correct. This research will test the null hypothesis that physical activity levels, as evidenced by osteoarthritis in human skeletons, remained constant at Epidamnus, and Apollonia, Albania during Greek colonial expansion (620 BCE-229 BCE). The assemblages for each site was first divided…
