The effects of changing head position and posture on head tremor in individuals with essential tremor involving the head
Objective: To determine the effects of head position and of different postural control demands on head tremor measures in participants with essential tremor. Methods: Seventeen participants with essential tremor (ET) ...
Surface Electromyography of the Pelvic Floor Musculature: Reliability and Validity of a Novel Electrode Design
Purpose: Intravaginal probes used for recording electromyography (EMG) from the pelvic floor muscles (PFMs) likely record activity from nearby muscles (crosstalk), and move during functional tasks, causing motion artifact ...
The effect of contraction type and intensity, mass loading and visual feedback on wrist tremor in individuals with essential tremor
Objectives: Determine the effect of contraction type and intensity, inertial loading, and visual feedback on various measures of hand tremor in subjects with essential tremor. Methods: Study 1. Twenty-three ET subjects ...
Deep and Superficial Pelvic Floor Muscle Responses to a Pain Stimulus in Vestibulodynia
Previous studies have suggested that protective responses in the pelvic floor muscles (PFMs), described in terms of hypertonicity and over-reactivity, are associated with and may worsen the symptoms of provoked vestibulodynia ...
Differences in pelvic floor muscle activation and functional output between women with and without stress urinary incontinence
Introduction: The primary purpose of this research was to determine whether women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) demonstrate pelvic floor muscle (PFM) strength or endurance deficits and/or changes in the motor ...
