Neuromuscular reeducation

Brian J Eckenrode
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Loss of knee range of motion (ROM) has been reported as the most common complication following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). Arthrofibrosis of the knee, or specifically Cyclops syndrome, has been described as the formation of a scar tissue nodule adjacent to the tibial tunnel of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft. This lesion often results in loss of knee extension ROM, pain, and impaired function. CASE DESCRIPTIONS: Three consecutive patients were referred to physical therapy following arthroscopic knee surgery for lysis of adhesions of a Cyclops lesion from a previous ACLR...

BACKGROUND: Following total hip arthroplasty, patients demonstrate compensatory movement strategies during activities of daily living such as walking and stair climbing. Movement compensations are important markers of functional decline in older adults and are related to poor functional capacity. Despite increased utilization of hip arthroplasty, persistent movement compensation, and functional performance deficits, no consensus on postoperative rehabilitation exists. Neuromuscular reeducation techniques offer a strategy to improve movement quality by emphasizing hip abductor performance and pelvic stability...

As a multisystem chronic illness, two areas come to the forefront for management by the rehabilitation specialist. Pain and neuromuscular deficits may be a result of direct insult by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or opportunistic infections affecting functional abilities. A brief overview of pathologic findings reveals that the types of pain experiences is based upon the disease processes that are occurring secondary to HIV. The management of pain and resultant functional changes depends on the source, symptoms and signs of pain...

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of global postural reeducation in the treatment of temporomandibular disorder through bilateral surface electromyographic (EMG) analysis of the masseter muscle in a 23-year-old volunteer. EMG values for the masseter were collected at rest (baseline) and during a maximal occlusion. There was a change in EMG activity both at rest and during maximal occlusion following the intervention, evidencing neuromuscular rebalancing between both sides after treatment as well as an increase in EMG activity during maximal occlusion, with direct improvement in the recruitment of motor units during contractile activity and a decrease in muscle tension between sides at rest...

UNLABELLED: Selecting the appropriate treatment decision is essential for achieving optimal results in the management of algo-dysfunctional syndrome of the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJD). The study aims to decide on the most effective (symptomatic control, preserved motility) kinetic program in patients with TMJ involvement. MATERIAL AND METHODS: prospective observational study on 83 consecutive patients with rheumatic diseases and TMJ dysfunction. Clinical assessment (pain, noises, muscle spasm, range of motion, ROM) was performed at baseline and after 3 months of specific kinetic rehabilitation program...

BACKGROUND: Patterned electrical neuromuscular stimulation (PENS) uses the electrical stimulation of sensory and motor nerves to achieve a skeletal muscle contraction using an electromyogram-derived functional pattern. PENS is used extensively for neuromuscular reeducation and treatment of muscle disuse atrophy. PURPOSE: To explore the effectiveness of PENS as applied to the quadriceps muscles on the vertical jump of an athletic population. STUDY DESIGN: Experimental with control and repeated measures over time...

BACKGROUND: Female athletes are at a greater risk for noncontact anterior cruciate ligament injuries than male athletes. Gender differences in frontal plane kinematics (hip adduction, knee valgus, and ankle eversion) and temporal relationships that make up the components of dynamic knee valgus may explain this discrepancy. HYPOTHESIS: The authors hypothesized that women would reach peak frontal plane kinematic values earlier during landing compared with their male counterparts...

Many treatment techniques, including exercise, electrical stimulation, biofeedback, and neuromuscular retraining, have been described for the treatment of patients with facial paresis. The degree of nerve injury determines the recovery of the facial muscles. Patients with a Sunderland third-degree injury benefit most from therapy to maximize facial nerve function. Following a facial nerve palsy, many patients present with facial muscle weakness in addition to aberrant synkinetic movements. Therefore therapy must be directed toward control of voluntary movement and decreasing synkinesis...
