Our feet are sophisticated pieces of architecture. They are composed of a network of muscles, bones, nerves, tendons, and ligaments. They are a mechanical marvel of nature. The injuries of the ankle and feet are most common in athletes. Approximately 21 percent of these injuries have prolonged morbidity. Each year, millions of Americans come to the podiatrist’s office and complain about swelling, pain, stiffness, and various deformities. A foot problem is a significant problem. It affects the tasks of daily living. Walking, running, going up and down steps, driving, and the simple joys of life as participating in social and recreational activities we love. If you have a higher body weight, you will feel the amount of impact on your feet when running. This is why wearing appropriate footwear that absorbs this impact is a must. Imagine a fully loaded cement truck weighing hundreds of tons. This weight is the equivalent amount of force your feet carry during an average day of walking. For the rehabilitation of ankle injuries, it is crucial to evaluate gait. Gait abnormalities are also a leading cause of ankle injuries. Heel-toe walking allows proper execution of the gait cycle, to prevent abnormal shifts that can stress bones, muscles, and joints. Gait pattern is a much-overlooked aspect of pain management in musculoskeletal disorders. In this book, you will learn all about the feet, common injuries affecting the ankles and feet, traditional interventions and practical exercises, ways to make ice packs, benefits of walking on the beach, and practical strategies for self-management.Become a self-treating patient by getting this audiobook. 1.

Low back pain is a leading cause of disability. It occurs in similar proportions in all cultures, interferes with quality of life and work performance. Mechanical low back pain is associated with pain and clinical instability in lumbar motion segments. Spinal stability is formed by active, passive and neural subsystems. Harmonious function of this system is altered by dysfunction of one or more components leading to clinical instability of motion segments ending in chronic low back pain. It has been shown that patients with low back pain have decreased levels of muscular endurance in the lumbar extensors and flexors (abdominal muscles). Exercises play an important part in the rehabilitation of low back pain. Re-education of the trunk muscles are achieved by using Core stabilization exercises.
Implants are commonly and successfully used as bone anchoring elements in oral prosthetic rehabilitation. Despite the high success rates (81-85% for maxilla, 98-99% for anterior mandible at 10 years) failures ranging from 1.5%- 6.7% are still existent. Although implants offer a highly predictable treatment option, for the replacement of single and multiple missing teeth, there are a variety of potential complications that may be surgical, biological, mechanical prosthetic or aesthetic. Careful diagnosis and treatment planning along with the use of diagnostic imaging, surgical guides, meticulous techniques and adherence to proven principles can prevent many of the complications and problems as well as thorough knowledge of anatomy, biology and wound healing.
In this manuscript, practitioners and students who are concerned with sports and rehabilitation medicine, kinesiology, as well as coaches and athletes, are introduced to numerous concepts, including mechanotransduction, inflammation, pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines, calpains, the extracellular matrix, neutrophils and macrophages, and their relevance to stretching, particularly stretching intensity . Although the quantitative parameters of training, duration, and frequency are important, it is the qualitative criterion of intensity ("how much") that the author suggests is ultimately of greater concern. Intensity, the rate and magnitude of force, may be responsible for the proper recovery, regeneration, and adaptation of the musculoskeletal tissues from training, competition, or rehabilitation from injuries. Research suggests that too much force results in the stimulation of an inflammatory response, one associated with a biochemical feedback emerging from a mechanical stimulus. The intent of this manuscript is twofold: to initiate the discussion of the importance of stretching intensity with regard to proper recovery, regeneration, and adaptation, and to suggest that researchers need to explore its potential role in addressing numerous inflammatory (RA) and non-inflammatory (OA, recurrent tendinitis etc.) musculoskeletal conditions as well.
Rehabilitation coatings of offshore equipment rarely perform as well as the original coating, despite the high cost involved. The performance gap is probably due to high relative humidity, salt contamination and limitations on the use of abrasive blast cleaning. Thus, this research aims to deepen the understanding of surface preparation parameters that affect organic coating performance. Carbon steel samples were subjected to a variety of surface alterations consisting of salt contamination, mechanical (wire brushing) and chemical (rust converter and remover) surface preparations followed by coating application and performance testing. The samples were first pre-corroded in a corrosion chamber to mimic degradation from service then surface preparations were performed after which a coating was applied. Coated new samples (RN) and fully corroded samples (SN) were the reference sets, while other samples were prepared to a variety of surface conditions. Visual inspection and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) were performed prior to exposure and periodically during accelerated cycling corrosion testing for a period of 30 days.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) refers to nondegenerative, noncongenital damage to the brain from an external mechanical force, which can lead to permanent or temporary impairment of cognitive, physical, and psychosocial functions, with an associated diminished or altered state of consciousness. Despite this broad definition, it is estimated that more than 1.500.000 people suffer TBI annually in US, with 20% afflicted with moderate or severe forms. Additionally, a high percentage of these patients are unable to return to their daily routine (approximately 50%). In this context, both motor and cognitive rehabilitation are extremely important for these individuals. The aim of cognitive and motor rehabilitation is to recover an individual's ability to process, interpret and respond to environmental inputs, as well as to create strategies and procedures to compensate for lost functions that are necessary in familial, social, educational and occupational settings.The purpose of this book is to review the basic concepts related to TBI, including mechanisms of injury, acute and post-acute care, severity levels, the most common findings in mild, moderate and severe TBI survivors, and the most frequent cognitive and motor impairments following TBI, as well as to discuss the strategies used to support post-TBI patients. The most important rehabilitation techniques, both from cognitive and motor perspectives, are addressed. Finally, information regarding work and community re-entry and familial and psychological support are discussed in detail.Topics in Cognitive Rehabilitation in the TBI Post-Hospital Phase is intended as a reference guide for all professionals who have contact with or are related to patients suffering from TBI. Any professionals who work with or are related to patients suffering from TBI will find here a broad and comprehensive overview of TBI, addressing all essential issues, from acute care to rehabilitation strategies, follow up and re-socialization.
