Neck and head posture have been found to have a significant influence on the posture of the lower spine region during lifting and both an extended/upward gaze and a flexed/downward gaze have been hypothesized to lead to increased pain and/or overuse of the neck musculature. As a result, strength training recommendations have turned to the use of a retracted neck posture as being the safer posture to assume during lifting. This study examined trunk and neck muscle activity and lumbar spine posture in seven participants while performing moderate load lifts using a retracted neck posture (chin drawn in posteriorly; recently gaining popularity among coaches, trainers, and physical therapists to reduce neck pain during lifting, and freestyle neck posture (no instructions given)...

Background: Microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V) has become a safe and effective means to tighten skin and subdermal structures by optimizing the amount of joule energy and treatment tissue planes for improved customization for the individual patient. To date, there have been an absence of split treatments to verify algorithms. Objectives: The aims of this institutional review board-approved investigation and clinical experience were to clarify the safety and efficacy of current treatment guidelines...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Postmenopausal women working in agriculture suffer from spinal pain for two overlapping reasons, the first is related to the menopause and the second to the specificity of rural work, which includes lifting heavy objects and changing weather conditions. Spinal pain affects the daily life of women as well as their ability to work. The objective of the study was to analyse the impact of spinal pain on activities of daily life in Polish postmenopausal women performing agricultural work...

Rejuvenating an aged face relies on maintaining facial harmony to provide optimal aesthetic results. Restoration of more youthful facial contours is dependent on blending the aesthetic facial topographic units. Many authors continue to debate the best approach for neck rejuvenation through a medial approach, a lateral approach, or a combination of the two. The authors present their approach to neck rejuvenation through medial platysma plication, inferior release, and lateral platysma window.

The head lift exercise (HLE) is a head-raising workout performed in a supine position. This exercise facilitates activation of the submental muscles located above the hyoid bone in front of the neck. HLE is a potential method to improve the movement of the hyolaryngeal movement and swallowing functions. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of HLE on the hyolaryngeal movement and aspiration in patients with dysphagic stroke. A total of 27 patients with stroke were randomly assigned either into the experimental (n = 13) or the control group (n = 14)...

Marija Cauchi, Eleanor Marsh
Head drop, or having a dropped head, is an uncommon condition in which patients present with a disabling inability to lift their head. It may arise in many neurological conditions that can be divided into those with neuromuscular weakness of neck extensors and those with increased tone of neck flexors. The most common neuromuscular causes include myasthenia gravis, motor neurone disease and myositis, while neck dystonia secondary to movement disorders can cause an increased tone. Investigations should include blood tests, imaging, muscle biopsy and neurophysiological studies...

BACKGROUND: Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA; Radiesse (R)) provides safe and effective correction of moderate-to-deep lines, volume replacement, lift and contour, and induction of neocollagenesis and neoelastogenesis for improved skin quality. CaHA hyperdilution takes advantage of its skin-tightening properties without a volumizing effect. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the collagen- and elastin-stimulating effects of diluted CaHA in subjects with skin laxity in the neck and décolletage...

BACKGROUND: Neck pain (NP) and low back pain (LBP) are highly prevalent. Exercise therapy helps, but effect sizes and therapy compliance remain low. Client-centred therapy and technology use may play a role to improve therapy outcomes. To offer technology supported rehabilitation matching patient's goals, training preferences for rehabilitation and technology familiarity need to be known. PURPOSE: This study aims to (1) inventory training preferences and motives, (2) evaluate whether these change during rehabilitation, and (3) evaluate familiarity with using technologies, in persons with NP/LBP...

Giant hiatal hernia (GHH) comprises 5% of hiatal hernia and is associated with significant complications. The traditional operative procedure, no matter transthoracic or transabdomen repair of giant hiatal hernia, is characteristic of more invasion and more complications. Although laparoscopic repair as a minimally invasive surgery is accepted, a part of patients can not tolerate pneumoperitoneum because of combination with cardiopulmonary diseases or severe posterior mediastinal and neck emphesema during operation...

OBJECTIVE: With increasing emphasis on early and frequent mobilisation of patients in acute care, safe patient handling and mobilisation practices need to be integrated into these quality initiatives. We completed a programme evaluation of a safe patient handling and mobilisation programme within the context of a hospital-wide patient care improvement initiative that utilised a systems approach and integrated safe patient equipment and practices into patient care plans. METHODS: Baseline and 12-month follow-up surveys of 1832 direct patient care workers assessed work practices and self-reported pain while an integrated employee payroll and injury database provided recordable injury rates collected concurrently at 2 hospitals: the study hospital with the programme and a comparison hospital...

PURPOSE: The neck extensor muscles contribute to spinal support and posture while performing head and neck motion. Muscle stiffness relates to passive elasticity (support) and active tensioning (posture and movement) of muscle. It was hypothesized that support and motion requirements are reflected in the distribution of stiffness between superficial and deep neck extensor muscles. METHODS: In ten healthy participants, shear modulus (stiffness) of five neck extensor muscles was determined in prone at rest and during isometric head lift at three intensities using shear wave elastography...

Wolfgang Funk
BACKGROUND: Producing youthful facial appearance by face-lifting often comes along with an undesired loss of patient's individual phenotype. This may result from insufficient preservation of retaining ligaments, the "guardians of facial identify," and from severance of the intersegmental connections of the superficial musculo-aponeurotic system (SMAS), which tether, structure, and compartmentalize facial soft tissue into defined, relevant anatomical zones. METHODS: The technique reported here preserves most retaining ligaments...

To contribute to the reconstruction of livestock industry in Fukushima, radioactive cesium ((134) Cs, (137) Cs) and potassium ((4) °K) were measured in various tissues of beef cattle living in an area where the evacuation order will be lifted in the near future. Radioactive cesium concentration was less than 100 Bq/kg in most of the samples. Skeletal muscles and kidney had the highest concentrations of radioactive cesium, whereas the liver was lowest among samples, excepting blood. Radioactive cesium concentration in the sirloin, tenderloin and top round was significantly higher than that in the neck muscle...

OBJECTIVE: The new lift is a procedure for facial rejuvenation with minimal incision, giving the patient a significant improvement of mid face and neck, with limited dissection and minimal scars. A further "One-stitch" of anchorage to the deep temporal fascia is required to hold tissues. By a minimal surgical access, we get a suitable cheek lift with the improvement of nose-labial folds, mandibular edge and neck contour. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between February 2009 and June 2012, 32 patients underwent facial rejuvenation surgery called new lift at a mean age of 46 years (range 35-55 years)...

INTRODUCTION: We assessed medical and surgical causes of unilateral trapezius muscle (TM) palsy and/or wasting. METHODS: Clinical and electrodiagnostic data were collected in 54 patients with TM impairment over 21 years. RESULTS: In total, 35 cases had a medical origin: neuralgic amyotrophy (NA, n = 22), idiopathic unilateral TM palsy (n = 5), regional neck radiotherapy for different conditions (n = 2), facioscapulohumeral dystrophy (FSH) (n = 4), abnormal loop of the jugular vein (n = 1), or basilar impression (n = 1)...
