Mechanically, the SS may induced prolonged and more prominent reduction in musculotendinous stiffness, which inhibited the production of force in the contractile component of the muscle (Taylor t al., 2009).
Evaluation of the distal biceps revealed a bifid tendon with separate origins at the biceps brachii at the musculotendinous junction extending distally with a common sheath for the two tendons.
Neer Award 2007: Reversion of structural muscle changes caused by chronic rotator cuff tears using continuous musculotendinous traction.
Exclusion criteria were as follows: current pregnancy, active cancer, lower extremity fracture within the past year, ligament sprain or musculotendinous strain in the past 3 months, surgery within the past year, metal plates in the body, prior history of migraines, and resting blood pressure greater than 200 mmHg systolic or greater than 100 mmHg diastolic.
Detailed testing was conducted post-match [Table 1, Figure 1], leading to initial hypothesis of latissimus dorsi and/or posterior rotator cuff musculotendinous strain.
TABLE Types of exercise and common examples Type of Principle Example exercise Aerobic Exercise sustained at a Walking, running, biking, low-to-moderate intensity cross-country skiing that brings about breathlessness, fatigue, or sweating Strength Use of resistance Weight training, to induce muscular body-weight exercises contraction and promote anaerobic endurance and muscle hypertrophy Flexibility Stretching Pliability activities, musculotendinous length yoga, Pilates through static and dynamic mechanisms
Flexibility and stretching exercises have been shown to improve joint range of motion, balance, and postural stability, reduce the risk of low back pain, and improve musculotendinous injuries (2,6,24,39,40).
The cases included seven complete tears at the tendinous insertion, one complete tear at the musculotendinous junction, and one incomplete tear; patients had a mean age of 32 years.
The tendon derives its blood supply from three sources: the musculotendinous junction, the surrounding connective tissue through the paratenon and the bone-tendon junction at the insertion site.2
In this way, the elastic energy stored in the musculotendinous assembly is used efficiently, and with minimal energy loss (Guglielmo, Greco, & Denadai, 2005).
