  • Osteoarthritis of the Knee

    In conclusion, the use of NMES for quadriceps muscle weakness has been shown to improve muscle strength.[] Pain in the knee joint can lead to wasting and weakness of the Quadriceps (thigh) muscles.[] Weakness and loss of neuromuscular control of the quadriceps, as well as other muscles around the knee and the hip, is thought to be a precursor to the degenerative process[]

  • Arthritis of the Knee

    Conservative Management Strengthening of the quadriceps muscle of the quadriceps muscle group can be beneficial, especially in patients with maltracking and weakness of these[] Problems associated with patellectomy include loss of normal knee power and function, quadriceps weakness, and failure to resolve anterior knee pain.[] Cybex measurements after patellectomy demonstrate significant decreases in the peak torque of the quadriceps muscles, with preservation of normal hamstring function.

  • Danon Disease

    The purpose of this investigation was to quantify functional performance, muscle weakness, and quadriceps activation in individuals with Danon disease as compared with healthy[] Affected males and females had decreased functional performance, significant generalized muscle weakness, and decreased quadriceps strength and activation when compared with[]

  • Graves Disease

    Although Graves' disease and systemic sclerosis are both autoimmune disorders, their relationship is rarely reported. We present the case of a Filipino woman with goitre and thyrotoxic signs and symptoms. Diagnosed with Graves' disease at the outpatient clinic, she took antithyroid medications and underwent[…][]

  • Joint Effusion

    As well as being a direct cause of quadriceps muscle weakness, AMI may prevent effective muscle strengthening [ 8 ],[ 9 ], leading to long-term quadriceps muscle atrophy and[] Marked weakness of the quadriceps muscles is typically observed following injury, surgery or pathology affecting the knee joint.[] .; licensee BioMed Central. 2014 Received: 23 August 2014 Accepted: 3 December 2014 Published: 10 December 2014 Abstract Introduction Marked weakness of the quadriceps muscles[]
