After spinal cord injury (SCI), sensory feedback circuits critically contribute to leg motor execution. Compelled by the importance to engage these circuits during gait rehabilitation, assistive robotics and training protocols have primarily focused on guiding leg movements to reinforce sensory feedback. Despite the importance of trunk postural dynamics on gait and balance, trunk assistance has comparatively received little attention. Typically, trunk movements are either constrained within bodyweight support systems, or manually adjusted by therapists...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries increases during maturation and peaks during late adolescence. Previous studies suggested an age-related association between participation in injury prevention programs and reduction of ACL injury. However, few studies have investigated differences in biomechanical changes after injury prevention programs between preadolescent and adolescent athletes. Purpose/Hypothesis: The purpose was to investigate the influence of age on the effects of the FIFA Medical and Research Centre (F-MARC) 11+ injury prevention warm-up program on differences in biomechanical risk factors for ACL injury between preadolescent and adolescent female soccer players...

Anatomical variations of the flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) muscle and tendon unit are frequently reported by anatomists and clinicians. Anatomical muscle variations of the FDS and its tendons may include variations of muscle belly, presence of accessory or duplicate tendons, abnormal tendon connections, and absence of muscle or tendon components. Such variations may or may not have clinical implications. This report presents a case not described previously: a unilateral accessory muscle of the flexor digitorum superficialis which was connected by a thick tendon to the flexor digitorum superficialis muscle; it was directed proximally to the insertion of the medial epicondyle of the humerus, next to the superficialis head of the pronator teres muscle...

Carla Rauseo
Background and Purpose: While there is much discussion about tendinopathy in the literature, there is little reference to the less common condition of iliopsoas tendinopathy, and no documentation of the condition in runners. The iliopsoas is a major decelerator of the hip and eccentric loading of the iliopsoas is an important component of energy transfer during running. Eccentric training is a thoroughly researched method of treating tendinopathy but has shown mixed results. The purpose of this case report is to describe the rehabilitation of a runner with iliopsoas tendinopathy, and demonstrate in a creative eccentric-biased technique to assist with treatment...

Background Muscles and tendons are subjected to a high level of stress in everyday life and sports. This often leads to injuries and is associated with training failure and reduced performance as well as with high costs for treatment and rehabilitation. Fast and successful treatment is therefore very important, both from an athletic and economic point of view. This study aims to demonstrate the relevance of biomechanical procedures for the objective monitoring of rehabilitation. At the same time, the results are to be used to establish progress and evaluation criteria for an efficient and controlled rehabilitation...

Wide-awake surgery has potential advantages for treating extensor or flexor tendon injury. We present a case of chronic extensor hallucis longus injury treated with turn-down reconstruction using wide-awake surgery with a selective nerve block. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first such case reported. The patient had dropped a knife proximal to the right hallux metatarsophalangeal joint. Because direct suturing was thought to be difficult, turn-down reconstruction was performed under a selective nerve block...

INTRODUCTION: Secondary repair of flexor tendon injuries remain a challenging procedure for hand surgeons. Usually, secondary reconstruction should be performed by staged approach. When the tendon and pulley integrity are intact, tenolysis may be the first surgical option. One-/two-stage tendon grafts are suggested when the integrity of flexor tendon is compromised. Active tendon implants (Brunelli prostheses) may represent an efficient option in patients with a poor prognosis, as well as whenever classical techniques fail...

BACKGROUND: Spasticity and spasms are distressing features of the upper motor neuron syndrome (UMNS) following spinal cord injuries (SCI) or multiple sclerosis (MS), and have common therapeutic implications. Despite an increase of antispastic drugs and strategies, sometimes up to the surgical implant of intrathecal baclofen pump, some patients still complain of disabling spasms, which poses diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Although clinically similar, flexor spasms due to pyramidal tract disruption must be clearly differentiated from periodic limb movements (PLM), often accompanying restless leg syndrome (RLS) and occurring during sleep...
