Does your body require a little extra support during training because of a previous fitness injury or biomechanical deficiency? While physical training and strengthening workouts can go a long way to addressing common musculoskeletal (MSK) issues, your efforts may be complemented by a wearable orthotic aid. Check out this quick guide to four orthotic supports… Read More
Musculoskeletal Pain in Military Populations
Research Paper Title Musculoskeletal Pain and Headache in the Active Duty Military Population: An Integrative Review. Background Since 2001, the U.S. Armed Forces’ training and deployment have greatly increased, escalating the risk of injury and pain-related issues both at home station and deployment environments. This integrative review examines the incidence, prevalence, and risk factors for… Read More
Does Healthcare Utilisation Before Hip Arthroscopy Predict Healthcare Utilisation After Surgery?
Research Paper Title Does Healthcare Utilization Before Hip Arthroscopy Predict Healthcare Utilization After Surgery in the United States Military Health System? An Investigation Into Health Seeking Behavior. Background The influence of prior patterns of healthcare utilisation on future healthcare utilisation has had minimal investigation in populations with musculoskeletal disorders. The purpose of this study was… Read More
What are the Effects of Low-intensity Blood Flow Restricted Exercise compared with Conventional Resistance Training in Military Rehabilitation?
Research Paper Title The effects of low-intensity blood flow restricted exercise compared with conventional resistance training on the clinical outcomes of active UK military personnel following a 3-week in-patient rehabilitation programme: protocol for a randomized controlled feasibility study. Background A challenge for rehabilitation practitioners lies in designing optimal exercise programmes that facilitate musculoskeletal (MSK) adaptations… Read More
What is the Correlation of Self-reported Outcome Measures & the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)?
Research Paper Title Correlation of Self-reported Outcome Measures and the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA): An Exploration of Validity. Background The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is a clinical model used to assist diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders by identifying dysfunctions in movement patterns. Based on the premise that addressing movement dysfunction is associated… Read More
Human Locomotion: Springs, Muscles & Walking/Running
Research Paper Title Bipedal walking and running with spring-like biarticular muscles. Abstract Compliant elements in the leg musculoskeletal system appear to be important not only for running but also for walking in human locomotion as shown in the energetics and kinematics studies of spring mass model. While the spring-mass model assumes a whole leg as a linear… Read More
The Disciplines of Biomechanics & Kinesiology
The disciplines primarily involved in describing and understanding human movement are biomechanics and kinesiology. Fitness professionals teach clients how to perform exercise movements and how to use exercise or rehabilitation equipment. Biomechanics is the study of the motion and causes of motion of living things, using a branch of physics known as mechanics (the study… Read More
