Janda would say! Share this: Muscle imbalances verified in upper crossed syndrome patients by Dr. The study was a case-control design of 17 subjects with UCS 15 females and 2 males and 17 matched healthy subjects. They were tested for range of motion and isometric strength and endurance of the neck and shoulder muscles using an isokinetic dynamometer. Significant weakness in isometric neck flexion and extension was found in the UCS patients compared to healthy subjects, as well as significant isometric weakness of shoulder external rotation and adduction. There was no significant difference in muscular endurance between the UCS patients and healthy controls. The author correctly notes that the diagnosis of UCS is often made through observation of posture and movement patterns.
A simpler screening test entails observation of the spinal curve during active lateral flexion of the trunk. As a screening test, forward bending in a short sit allows observation of the gradual curvature of the spine.
Normally, the therapist should be able to achieve passive dorsiflexion to 90 degrees. Physical Therapy Management The treatment of tightness is not in strengthening as it would further increase tightness and possibly result in more pronounced weakness.
A tight muscle should be stretched efficiently. Stretch the specific muscle for a duration of 15 seconds. A five week active stretching program significantly increases active and passive ROM in the lower extremity. The not-stretched side is maximally flexed to stabilize the pelvis and flatten the lumbar spine. The other leg is normally in flexed position because of the tightness of the iliopsoas.
Push this leg into the neutral position onto the table. Hold this position 15 seconds. Exhale and stretch. Hold this position for 15 seconds. Erector spinae stretch The solution for these common patterns is to identify both the shortened and the weakened structures and to set about normalizing their dysfunctional status.
This might involve: deactivating trigger points and removing muscular adhesions. Perform myofascial release and trigger-point massage to the gluteus muscles, iliopsoas and tensor fasciae latae grades of recommendation: B. Regaining the normal lumbar flexion mobility Core stabilization exercises to strengthen the abdominal muscles. Re-education of posture and body usage. It is necessary to relearn the specific activiation of every element within the Lower Pelvic Unit.
This will establish the important fundamental patterns of intra-pevlic control and will also integrate these patterns into basis functional patterns of movement control iniated from the pelvis. Retraining patients with Posterior Pelvic Crossed Syndrome It is important to improve the active exhalation, which will bring the thorax caudally on a stable pelvis. It is important to assist the patient, while maintaining the neutral position..
While executing this exercise, it is crucial that the patient breaths down and not up. The patient has to be able to create sufficient intra-abdominal pressure , while maintaining a regular breathing pattern. The patient has to lie down on his back, in supine supported hip flexion to eliminate gravity.
It is then important to encourage an active and long exhalation. This gives the patient the sense of the required action. When the correct pattern is mastered it can be progressed into unsupported hip flexion. It is important to push the ribs wide and back, without lifting the thorax. To realize this, the client is asked to push out sideways into the hands of the therapist.
