    If swelling and edema is successfully reduced and it can be determined that the athlete is not in the acute phase of injury, thermotherapy will be used prior to performing exercises/activities. The use of moist heat packs can increase cell metabolism and blood flow aiding in the reduction of edema, allow for tissue elongation reducing joint contractures and increasing range of motion. Also, it will promote relaxation by reducing muscle spindle sensitivity, allowing for patient motivation, pain…

    These effects of stretching prominently appear to affect stretch tolerance with no changes in the viscoelastic properties of the muscle (Halbertsma & Göeken, 1994) (Magnusson, Simonsen, Aagaard, Sørensen, & Kjaer, 1996). The mechanism for increased performance following chronic stretching is believed to be related to stretch-induced hypertrophy, which is discussed more when examining the adaption mechanisms. Adaptation Mechanisms The adaptation mechanisms of acute and chronic stretching…

    with the alpha-gamma co-activation theory. It states that the alpha motor neurons activates the motor tone, which leads to the spindles providing feedback to the brain. This process is done by the gamma motor neurons, who are in charge of controlling the stimulation of the cerebellum. Also, both the alpha and gamma motor neurons meet at the same effector muscles. Furthermore, when the extrafusal fibers of the muscle spindle contract, the intrafusal fibers change length in correlation to the…

    bases that once it adheres to the VMO muscle of a patient with anterior knee pain, proprioception input increases hence facilitating muscle contraction (35). Additionally, the tape is applied over the iliotibial band, tensor fasciae latae and VL muscle to hinder tension of the muscles as well as relax the muscle. Research (8) established that use of Kinesio tape reduces pain associated by PFPS though it never changes patellar alignment. Kinesio Taping lugs the skin to widen the gap between the…

    However, muscle fibers have vital physical features that develop two distinct types of fibers. The fast twitch, also known as type ii fibers, and slow-twitch fibers or type i fibers (Bidle, 2016). Muscles are also put in “compartments” a muscle compartment is known as, “a group of functionally related muscles enclosed and separated from others by connective tissue fascia.” (Sullivan & Gan, 2015). These fascias are also known as intermuscular septa. The muscle compartments also hold the blood…

Asher and Burton (2006) have found that studies has shown that pulmonary symptoms like shortness of breath are generally found more often in patients with AIS. This is because these curves are usually larger. They found that this does…
