Effects Of Exercise-Induced Muscle Damage On Neuroplasticity And Stiffness 2018 962 Musculoskeletal injuries are one of the leading causes of disability within the general population. Acutely, injury can cause pain, inflammation, and feelings of stiffness impacting the nervous system as well as the muscle to control the injured segm...
The Effects Of Anodal Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation On Neural Excitability And Function In Individuals With Chronic Ankle Instability: A Preliminary Investigation 2019 821 Chronic ankle instability (CAI) is common after ankle sprains, characterized by repeated sensations of giving-way existing in 30% of active individuals; high reinjury rates attributed to changes in brain function, suggest current rehabilitation is in...
The Effect Of Three-Days Of Ankle Immobilization On Joint Motion And Neural Excitability 2020 387 Boot immobilizers (BI) are commonly used following ankle injuries, however, little is known about the effects of prolonged usage on corticospinal and reflexive excitability, and on gait kinematics. A crossover design was implemented using twelve unin...
The Effect Of Peripheral Somatosensory Stimulation On Ankle Function In Individuals With Chronic Ankle Instability 2022 88 Peripheral somatosensory stimulation (PSS) is a clinical intervention capable of improving neural and muscle function by increasing neural excitability in injured patients. PSS has been effective in improving function in neurologically-impaired popul...
Utilizing EMG Biofeedback To Modify Cortical Contributions To Postural Control 2017 472 Electromyography Biofeedback (EMG-BF) is a clinical tool used to enhance patient awareness of muscular functions in real time. When used with rehabilitation exercises, it is believed that EMG-BF can enhance neural plasticity in postural control muscl...
The Effects Of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation On Proprioception Following Exercise-Induced Muscle Damage 2019 573 Injuries cause pain that leads to sequelae that reduce quality of life. These contribute to changes in the nervous system which cause sensorimotor deficits potentially increasing injury risk. Eccentric muscle damage protocols cause pain and reduction...
Neurocognitive Reactive Hopping In Individuals With Chronic Ankle Instability And Healthy Controls 2022 291 Many tools used to assess patients with chronic ankle instability (CAI) are limited by their ability to translate to non-clinical settings. We aimed to use a neurocognitive reactive hopping task that would mimic non-clinical settings by challenging c...
The Effect Of Short-Term Ankle Immobilization On Joint Stiffness And Nervous System Function 2016 2578 Ankle sprains are the most common musculoskeletal injury observed in the physically active, with high rates of recurrence tied to neuromechanical alterations. While immobilization is often the treatment of initial ankle sprains, debate remains regard...
