How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Objective: Measure the effects of cervical extensor muscle isometric contraction on cervical surface electromyographic spectral shift and balance in healthy subjects. Design: Experimental within-subject design. Background: Postural instability can be induced by mechanically stimulating cervical muscle spindles. Postural changes are also observ...
Article

Foam pads are increasingly used on force platforms during balance assessments in order to produce increased instability thereby permitting the measurement of enhanced posturographic parameters. A variety of foam pads providing different material properties have thus been used, although it is still unclear which characteristics produce the most effe...

Neck muscle fatigue has been shown to alter an individual's balance in a similar way to that reported in subjects suffering from neck pain or subjects that have suffered a neck injury. The main purpose of the present study was to quantify the effects of neck fatigue on neck muscle electromyography (EMG) activity, balance, perceived fatigue and perc...

INTRODUCTION:Cervical functional capacity outcome measures that are simple and reliable are urgently needed in order permit accurate assessment/reassessment during treatments and rehabilitation. Induced neck muscle fatigue has been shown to alter functional capacities such as balance and kinaesthetic sense in the standing posture. The Rod and Frame...

Effects of Age on Posturography in Professional Football Players Guy Gosselin1 Simon Maltby2 1 College of Chiropractic Sports Science (Europe), UK 2 Hull City Association Football Club Ltd e-mail: guy.gosselin@eastyorkshirechiro.com Introduction. Very little is known about the balance profile of professional football players. Previous studies we...

Title: Comparison of postural characteristics in professional and amateur rugby players: a pilot study Background: Balance and agility is an essential parameter of performance in professional sports such as rugby. Elite players perform better at agility tests than sub-elite ones1 although it is unknown to what extent balance contributes to agilit...

Title: Repeatability of postural characteristics in rugby players using computerised posturography and foam pads Background: Pre-participation functional capacities such as balance are rarely measured objectively which in turns makes rehabilitation outcome measures difficult to apply. Altered postural effects of neck injuries can be measured by co...
Article
The purpose of this study was to develop a thoracic adjusting simulator for chiropractic students to evaluate and improve their adjusting skills, and to test reliability and validity of the device. Attempting to make an adjustment more objective by using a simulator may help to improve students’ adjusting skills in respect to speed, force and displ...
Article
Rationale: Increased spinal morbidity among drivers is well-documented and its pathomechanism has been objectively verified elsewhere by the authors. This study aims to explore the effects of chiropractic intervention in symptomatic drivers, assess the benefits to the driver and the transport company. Study design: A group of 22 symptomatic bus dr...
Article
To perform three-dimensional (3-D) manual contact force measurements of chiropractic adjustments at the patient-chiropractor interface. A new hand/palm-held computerized 3-D force measuring system was used to collect 3-D force data at the doctor-patient interface (direct measurement) during cervical, thoracic, and sacroiliac adjustments by 2 chirop...
Conference Paper
Driving a Formula car represents a highly demanding technical task during which the driver is submitted to large +/- G forces. Cervical muscular pain and discomfort are common complaints reported not only by rookies but also by more experienced drivers. We have previously observed that even imited track time produces significant changes in postural...

The presence of movement at the SI joint has been increasingly investigated and discussed. Even though it has been contested in the past, the presence of movement at this articulation is now accepted. Since this joint must be relatively mobile, it is now considered that abnormal movement might be related to low back pain.
