  • Exposure To Altitude Case Study

    dioxide, respiratory alkalosis, being in a hypoxic state and many more. However, when having an exercise performance such as the winter Olympics one should take the proper precautions. Chronic adaptations to altitude include pulmonary, cardiovascular, muscle, nutrition/metabolism function. When pertaining to Desplanches et al. their researched was predominately looking at how changes in the pH can affect muscular function. As we learned in class there is a drastic change in pH levels due to the…

  • Case Study Of Avabahuka

    Frozen shoulder is a clinical syndrome of pain and severely decreased joint motion caused by thick-ening and contraction of the joint capsule. The peak incidence is between middle aged people. In Ayurved, the symptoms, etiopathogenesis resembles with Avabahuka. It is a disease characterized by morbid vata dosha localizing around the shoulder joint and thereby causing loss or dryness of shleshaka kapha as well as constricts the siras at this site leads to loss of movements of the arm. Ayurvedic…

  • Muscle Contraction Case Study Essay

    On examination, there is significant wasting of muscles in the shoulders, upper arms, and hips. There is significant weakness on muscle testing (i.e., the patient is unable to exert a normal force with muscle contraction). On tapping the knee tendon there is a contraction of the quadriceps muscle in the leg, and on tapping the biceps tendon there is a contraction of the biceps muscle in the arm. No fasciculations are noted. There is normal muscle tone detected by passive movement…

  • Exoskeletons: Physiotherapy Management

    Introduction For this essay, I plan to discuss the use of exoskeletons as a part of the physiotherapy management for adults with multilevel spinal cord injuries. Fisahn et al (2016) states that “exoskeletons are motorized orthoses placed over a person's limb with joint parts corresponding to those of the human body.” And that “their purpose is to facilitate standing and walking, as well as assist in rehabilitation” (Fisahn et al. 2016). According to the WHO (2017) a spinal cord injury (SCI) is…

  • Cattle Muscle Analysis

    pig and its muscle structure, researchers and individuals are able to gain a better understanding of what human muscles look like, where they are located, and how they function. The muscles that were labeled in the dissection are important factors in the movement of the individual. The muscles work together though antagonism. Antagonism works when one muscle, such as the extensor carpi radialis contracts, and the flexor carpi radialis relaxes, allowing the hand to extend. These muscles are…

  • Stimulus Strength Investigation Report

    that increasing stimulus strength will increase the force generated by the gastrocnemius muscle and visa versa till 0.2V, where the force germinated starts to decrease. As shown in Table 2 and Figure 2, the strength of the stimulus started from 0.00 V to 1.00V with 0.05 V and 0.10V intervals. At 0.10V the force generated by the muscle increases rapidly from 0mN to 288.33mN. The force generated by the muscle continues to increase to 699.99mN at 0.15V until the stimulus strength reaches 0.2V.…

  • HCSMA Case Studies

    Case Study: Hereditary Canine Spinal Muscular Atrophy Genetic Background Hereditary canine spinal muscular atrophy (HCSMA) is proven to be an autosomal-dominate disease that affects most noticeably the Brittany spaniel (Pinter MJ, Waldeck RF, Wallace N, & Cork LC, Motor Unit Behavior in Canine Motor Neuron Disease, 1995). HCSMA originated as a spontaneous mutation in the Survivor Motor Neutron gene found in the purebred Brittany spaniel population (Ericsson. A & Rubin. C, 2012). Due to the…

  • Muscular Dystrophy Essay

    includes progressive muscle weakening caused by an insufficient gene for the production of a protein in the muscles called dystrophin. (Lucas-Heron, 1995) It affects about one in 3600-6000 live male births, making it the most common form of muscular dystrophy. Symptoms are most often noticeable by the time patients reach the age of three to five. The affected males will lose their ability to walk by eight to twelve years of age, making them wheelchair dependent. This disorder affects muscle…

  • Muscle Dystrophy Research Paper

    Duchenne Muscle Dystrophy Introduction: “Muscular Dystrophy is a group of muscle diseases that weaken the musculoskeletal system. Muscle Dystrophies are characterized by muscle weakness, defects in muscle proteins and the death of muscle cells and tissue. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is one of many types found and it passed down through the X chromosome. DMD is one of the most common muscle diseases found in early childhood. 1 in 3500 boys are born with DMD however very rarely affects girls…

  • Muscles Lab Report

    Muscles (Grip strength) In this week’s lab, we was doing an experiment on forearm, and its muscle fiber with nerves. The forearm is a part that between the primates’ elbow and wrist. Forearms contain connective tissue, nerve tissue and muscle tissue. In which, connective tissue is just radius and ulnar bones. However, there are a great deal of muscles and nerves in the forearm. When a nerve impulse transmission to synaptosomes induced depolarization, allows calcium ions to enter the cell…
