Muscle activation of vastus medialis
oblique and vastus lateralis in sling-based exercises in patients with patellofemoral pain syndrome: A cross-over study.
showed significant difference in muscle activation between sessions at T3 (p = 0.0177) for HG, and statistically significant difference was found for DG (p = 0.0252) and HG (p = 0.0140) at FR.
The synergies weighting coefficients indicate that the four coactivation patterns are vastus medialis
, rectus femoris, and gluteus maximus; gastrocnemius, soleus; tibialis anterior; and biceps femoris, respectively.
Moreover, the book concludes with a manifesto, "Vademecum for the Prevention of psychopathia medialis
," in which Zielinski describes, in a series of paragraphs, what is to be done, also in an everyday context.
Rehabilitation protocols aim to promote the balance between the portions of the quadriceps muscle, by selective strengthening of the Vastus Medialis
Oblique (VMO), however, there is no consensus in the literature regarding the best way to recruit the VMO.
These exercises include strengthening exercises for muscles around the knee joint (especially the vastus medialis
obliqus muscle) and stretching exercises for the hamstrings and iliotibial band [8,10].
Saeterbakken and Fimland (12) investigated EMG activity in the rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis
, biceps femoris, soleus, rectus abdominis, external oblique and erector spinae muscles during the free squat on the ground and different US (Power board[R], BOSU[R] and Balance Cone[R]).
(9-10) Abnormal vastus medialis
oblique/vastus lateralis reflex timing has also been considered; however this is proving to be less significant than first theorized according to recent systematic reviews.
Las cabezas medial (vastus medialis
) e intermedia (vastus intermedius) se originaron en las caras medial y craneal del femur respectivamente y se insertaron en el borde libre de la patela.
Soft tissue abnormalities, such as generalized ligamentous laxity, torn medial patellofemoral ligament, or a weakened vastus medialis
obliquus, may cause or result in instability.
Often, when you develop runner's knee, the vastus medialis
obliqus (VMO) of the quadriceps (the inner thigh muscle that attaches to the inner aspect of the patella) is not working as well as it could.
Facies articularis sesamoidea lateralis et medialis
, which is found proximal to the caudal end of condylus lateralis (Getty, 1975) was not found in this study.
