PURPOSE: Dynamic stability of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the characteristic of the joint to achieve normal function by harmonious, balanced, synchronized interactions of the various functional subunits of the stomatognathic system. The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in the mechanics and dynamics of the TMJ during recovery from surgical treatment of an isolated condylar fracture. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This is a prospective cohort study involving 30 patients who underwent open reduction and internal fixation for an isolated unilateral condylar fracture and were clinically asymptomatic at 6 months after surgery...

Polyneuropathies are common neurologic disorders affecting the peripheral nerves. There are a number of causes of damage to these structures, such as genetic and metabolic factors, autoimmune disorders, infection, drug or environmental toxicity, and malignancy. Motor and sensory impairments are commonly encountered in these conditions, leading to altered balance and gait with increased risk of falling. Diabetic neuropathy is the most common cause of peripheral nerve disease and extensive investigation of balance and walking function revealed greater postural instability and delayed activation of distal muscles during walking...

Quadriceps muscle rehabilitation following knee injury or disease is often hampered by pain, proprioception deficits or instability associated with inhibition of quadriceps activation during walking. The cross-modal plasticity of the somatosensory system with common sensory pathways including pain, pressure and vibration offers a novel opportunity to enhance quadriceps function during walking. This study explores the effectiveness of an active knee brace that used intermittent cutaneous vibration during walking to enhance the peak knee flexion moment (KFM) during early stance phase as a surrogate for net quadriceps moment (balance between knee extensor and flexor muscle moments)...

PURPOSE: Low levels of physical activity often observed in pediatric oncology might be attributed to various functional deficits, especially those of the lower limbs as these affect gait, mobility, and, consequently, physical activity. In the past few years, whole-body vibration (WBV) has emerged as a new therapy modality for improving physical functioning. Although WBV is increasingly applied in children with disabilities, its impact on lower limb function in pediatric cancer patients and survivors has not yet been investigated...

Stroke is associated with long-term disability and patients experience numerous physical impairments including muscle weakness, particularly in the paretic limbs, balance, and functional mobility. During acute stroke rehabilitation, when individuals are less likely to be functionally independent and rely on rehabilitative care, the efficacy of low skill interventions that can reduce sedentary behaviour should be established. As such, this narrative revision focused on the use of empirical studies of whole-body vibration exercise (WBVE) on different health outcomes in stroke patients...

The association of symmetrical distal sensorimotor polyneuropathy with anti-myelin-associated glycoprotein antibodies (MAG) has been well established. Although autonomic symptoms are uncommon with anti-MAG antibody neuropathy (MAN). We are presenting an unusual case, who developed acute onset urinary retention, orthostatic hypotension, bradycardia and was found to have MAN. She was a 68-year-old lady, presented with progressive ascending numbness, weakness of her extremities and balance problems. On neurological examination, she had generalized muscle weakness, reduced perception to all modalities of sensation with marked impairment of vibration and position sense in the lower limbs...

BACKGROUND: Physical strength improvements have been observed with whole-body vibration training (WBVT); however, the appropriate load and duration have not been determined. Furthermore, studies on WBVT in throwing athletes, for whom power training is important, are lacking. Therefore, we examined the effectiveness of lower limb training by WBVT in male throwing athletes. METHODS: Fourteen male throwing athletes were enrolled. Lower limbs training (squat, single-leg squat, forward lunge, and side lunge) was performed with WBVT (n=7) or without WBVT (n=7)...

Sixty-two office workers in a Swiss federal department were randomly assigned to a training and a control group. While the training group was instructed to complete 3 stochastic resonance whole-body vibration (SR-WBV) exercises every week for 4 weeks, the control group received no treatment. During this time all participants answered a daily questionnaire concerning their surefootedness, sense of balance, musculoskeletal well-being, and muscle relaxation. Before and after the 4-week SR-WBV intervention, balance was tested with a single-leg stance on a foam mat of the Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) using a SwayStar™-System measuring Total Angle Area (TotAngArea) and Total Velocity Area (TotVelArea)...

Stable gait requires active control of the mediolateral (ML) kinematics of the body center of mass (CoM) and the base of support (BoS) in relation to each other. Stance leg hip abductor (HA) muscle spindle afference may be used to guide contralateral swing foot placement and adequately position the BoS in relation to the CoM. We studied the role of HA spindle afference in control of ML gait stability in young and older adults by means of muscle vibration. Healthy young ( n = 12) and older (age > 65 years, n = 18) adults walked on a treadmill at their preferred speed...

BACKGROUND: Strengthening the health of the young people and adolescents is a priority task for the health care system. The posture, as a habitual position of the body of a person standing at ease, is formed in the course of the child's physical development including the development of the static-dynamic functions. The problems of rehabilitation of the school-age children arising from the necessity to correct impaired posture, including scoliosis, are associated with their life activity and the socio-economic status...

BACKGROUND: Impairments of postural stability occur with increasing age and in neurodegenerative diseases like the Parkinson's disease (PD). While changes in balance have been described in many studies under steady-state conditions, less is known about the dynamic changes in balance following sudden transition to different sensory inputs. RESEARCH QUESTION: The aim was to clarify different effects of age and Parkinson's disease on dynamic postural responses immediately after lower leg muscle stimulation offset...

INTRODUCTION: Primary orthostatic tremor (OT) is characterized by high-frequency lower limb muscle contractions and a disabling sense of unsteadiness while standing. To date, therapeutic options for OT are limited. Here, we examined the effects of proprioceptive leg muscle stimulation via muscle tendon vibration (MTV) on tremor and balance control in patients with primary OT. METHODS: Tremor in nine patients with primary OT was examined during four conditions: standing (1), standing with MTV on the bilateral soleus muscles (2), lying (3), and lying with MTV (4)...

The aim of this study was to estimate the immediate effects of plantar vibration, applied to the more affected foot, on balance impairment in patients post-stroke. This pretest-posttest clinical study included 18 patients (13 men) poststroke; mean age 56.0±8.9 years (range, 41-71 years). One session of 5-min vibratory stimuli (frequency, 100 Hz) was applied to the plantar region of the more affected foot of all participants. The plantar vibration significantly improved the Timed UP and Go test ( P =0.03, Cohen d =0...

Populations with obesity are more likely to fall and exhibit balance instability. The reason for this is likely multifactorial, but there is some evidence that sensory function is impaired during obesity. We tested the hypothesis that muscle proprioceptor function is compromised in a mouse model of diet induced obesity. An in vitro muscle-nerve preparation was used to record muscle spindle afferent responses to physiological stretch and sinusoidal vibration. We compared the responses of C57/Bl6 male and female mice on a control diet (10% kcal fat) with those eating a high fat diet (HFD; 60% kcal fat) for 10 weeks (final age 14-15 weeks old)...

BACKGROUND: PaVOS is a randomized controlled trial (RCT) which aims to address the use of whole-body vibration exercise (WBV) in combination with parathyroid hormone 1-34 fragment teriparatide (PTH 1-34) treatment in patients with osteoporosis. PTH 1-34 is an effective but expensive anabolic treatment for osteoporosis. WBV has been found to stimulate muscle and bone growth. Animal studies have shown a beneficial effect on bone when combining PTH 1-34 with mechanical loading. A combined treatment with PTH 1-34 and WBV may potentially have beneficial effects on bone and muscles, and reduce fracture risk...
