Exercises To Lessen Extensor Lag Of Quadriceps
Gluteus maximus and quadriceps hurt suddenly for no reason. Pais is lessened when standing, but getting almost unbearable on sitting or lying down.?
Check your hip: Hip problems typically cause thigh pain as well as buttock pain. However fractured hips generally hurt more when weight-bearing. Femoral nerve problems are often worse with hip flexion but shouldn't cause buttock pain. Any pain worse when recumbent is worth getting checked out, soon. ...Read more

Patients with lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow have
latera elbow pain. Once the pain resolves with medication, rest
or local injection, the patient needs to strengthen the dorsal forearm
muscles that extend the wrist. This should be done with very
light hand weights or therabands. ...Read more
Exercise: Stretch and exercise. Take an anti-inflammatory after meals. ...Read more
Fell&hurt my wrists7 mths ago. Have been doing PT. A wk ago, a small shelf hurt/scratched the back of my right hand. Can I still doPT exercises (wrist extensor stretch, wrist flexor strtch, stress ball squeeze, Tyler twist, wrist curls, wrist extension curls)?
Yes: A small/superficial injury to the skin of your hand should heal without any issue, even with your wrist exercises. It sounds like the injury is not over a joint so you should be fine. Just keep the wound clean (frequent hand washing and keep it covered until it heals or a scab forms) to prevent infection. ...Read more
Several roles: It serves to extend, adduct, transversely extend, and internally rotate the shoulder. It works with other muscles to provide extension and lateral flexion of the lower spine area. ...Read more
The thigh can be ten: The thigh, where the quadriceps muscle is, can be tender and swollen. Your physician will evaluate you and see if this is the most plausible diagnosis. It may be something else and therefore the physician will help clarify your symptoms ...Read more
I have been in a tempory cast for 1 week for a extensor digitorum injury it is no better will they put me in a regular cast?
Too early to tell: If it is properly fitted for you/your case, the temporary cast should work well. Casting basically works to immobilize the area and protect it from further injury. Healing is from your body and not the cast. Tendon injury may take many wks to heal and so 1 wk is too early to tell. Close follow-up with the doc is recommended for reassessment/care. Good luck. ...Read more

How much do reattachments of extensor pollicis brevis tendons usually cost? Lacerated mine today, and am dreading the cost. Have insurance of course
Hi, sirwhen we holding 5kg mass steady both flexor and extensor contracted but how about when lifting the mass upwards? Will the extensor also contract?
Tey will not: They will not contract, extensors work when you extend, flexors work when flexing motion occurs, this muscles groups work independant of eatch other. ...Read more
Basically...: All four parts of the quadriceps muscle ultimately insert into the tibial tuberosity of the tibia. This is via the patella, where the quadriceps tendon becomes the patellar ligament, which then attaches to the tibia. ...Read more

Do not overload it.: It can be strengthened by a PRE exercise program. most quad. Failure comes from episodes beyond your control as in falls from height, auto accidents or jumping from heights. The actual load limit of ones quads can only be decided by failure, then you know what the area of the overload is. ...Read more
EDM to small finger: Extensor Digiti Minimi is a thin muscle of the forearm. It arises from the common Extensor tendon by a thin tendinous slip, from the intermuscular septa. Its tendon runs through a compartment of the dorsal carpal ligament then divides into two as it crosses the hand, and finally joins the expansion of the Extensor digitorum communis tendon on the dorsum of the first phalanx of the little finger ...Read more
Post deltoid, lats +:
Major extensors include the posterior deltoid, latissimus dorsi, teres major
other muscles with extension moments include the subscapularis, long head of the triceps, infraspinatus, teres minor.
The sternal head of the pectoralis major can have an extensor moment when the arm is in a forward flexed, internally rotated position. ...Read more
Best bet: evolution: The posterior deltoid, latissimus dorsi, teres major are shoulder extensors. Other muscles with extension moments include subscapularis, long head of triceps, infraspinatus, teres minor, sternal head of pectoralis major. Presumably shoulder muscles evolved to facilitate independent use of the upper extremities for fine motor tasks (allows me to type this answer) in upright biped organisms. ...Read more

Co-contraction: Simultaneous contraction of antagonist muscles is known as co-contraction. This creates a stabilizing or dampening effect on the involved limb. For example, when holding a drill in space and attempting to control how deep it plunges, your biceps and triceps co-contract around your shoulder and elbow. In some conditions (eg brachial plexus injuries) pathologic co-contraction can limit function. ...Read more
They help each other: When holding a weight up, against gravity, both flexors and extensors should contract, but with those muscles doing most of the work doing most of the contracting, and the other muscles on the other side of the arm just contracting a little bit to keep the person in balance, and to control the steadiness of the arm. ...Read more
Stiffen & load joint: Think of your knee as a great example. Both the quadriceps and hamstring span across the knee joint. If you contract both the quadricep (extensor) and hamstring muscles (flexor), your essentially lock your knee in a fixed position or at least significantly increase the load felt across your knee joint throughout an active arc of motion. ...Read more
