To MOVE you to be BETTER.
INJURY & PERFORMANCE
Determinants of performance and injury are multifactorial, meaning that positive and negative responses to training are influenced by biomechanical factors, as well as various emotional and lifestyle factors. Analyzing moderators of workload can help us better-understand these factors and prescribe workload with more precision to increase chances for training and rehab success.
Tissue Adaptation to Mechanical Forces:
A Questions of Time
“Cells live in a manifold existence. They are both complex biochemical information processing entities and mechanical objects that live within mechanically active environments. As our knowledge of the molecular mechanisms underlying mechanosensation and mechanotransduction improves, these mechanical and biochemical realities appear increasingly intertwined.”
When there is a reduction in joint capacity, i.e. amount of useable range of motion, movement exploration becomes confined and variability in movement is restricted. Continually using the same confined range of motion leads to the same tissues becoming repetitively overloaded. Acute and chronic overloading of tendinous tissue can lead to tendon pathology – TENDINOPATHY.
Ulnar Impaction Syndrome:
The Role of Pronator Quadratus
Ulnar impaction is caused by abutment of the ulna (Ul) against the carpal bones - often experienced as lateral wrist pain when loading the wrist in extension (such as push-ups or barbell front rack).
The pronator quadratus is a deep muscle in the distal forearm which influences movement of the wrist joints. It is comprised of 2 heads:
👉The SUPERFICIAL HEAD is thought to contribute to wrist pronation.
👉The DEEP HEAD is thought to play a role in stabilizing the distal radioulnar joint.
💥The deep head (d1 & d2) attaches directly into the joint capsule of the distal radioulnar joint and base of the ulnar styloid. These distal muscle fascicles of pronator quadratus contribute to pulling the redundant capsule of the distal radioulnar joint to avoid being pinched between the radius (Ra) and the ulna. It is also speculated that these muscles fascicles shift the ulna proximally (pro) and laterally (lat), thus functioning to prevent the head of the ulna from impacting against the carpal bones.
In closing angle joint pain cases like ulnar impaction, establishing healthy quality of the deepest bioflow tissue (in this case pronator quadratus) is necessary before trying to establish healthy joint function.
