Adhesive capsulitis and frozen shoulder syndrome (FSS) are two terms that have been used to describe a painful and stiff shoulder. However it is important to note that the current consensus definition of a frozen shoulder by the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons is "a condition of uncertain etiology characterized by significant restriction of both active and passive shoulder motion that occurs in the absence of a known intrinsic shoulder disorder." #medical #med #medschool #science #anatomy #pathology #medicine #medstudent #surgeon #surgery #doctor #medlife #nurse #doktor #rehabilitation #neuro #neurorehabilitation #physicaltherapy #therapist #medicaldoctor #md #physician #follow4follow #followforfollow #followme
Botulinum toxin acts by binding presynaptically to high-affinity recognition sites on the cholinergic nerve terminals and decreasing the release of acetylcholine, causing a neuromuscular blocking effect. This mechanism laid the foundation for the development of the toxin as a therapeutic tool. Recovery occurs through proximal axonal sprouting and muscle re-innervation by formation of a new neuromuscular junction. De Paiva and colleagues suggest that eventually the original neuromuscular junction regenerates. #medical #med #medschool #science #anatomy #pathology #medicine #medstudent #surgeon #surgery #doctor #medlife #nurse #doktor #rehabilitation #neuro #neurorehabilitation #physicaltherapy #therapist #medicaldoctor #md #physician #botox #botulinumtoxin
Dystonia is a disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contractions that cause slow repetitive movements or abnormal postures. The movements may be painful, and some individuals with dystonia may have a tremor or other neurologic features. There are several different forms of dystonia that may affect only one muscle, groups of muscles, or muscles throughout the body. Some forms of dystonia are genetic but the cause for the majority of cases is not known. #medical #med #medschool #science #anatomy #pathology #medicine #medstudent #surgeon #surgery #doctor #medlife #nurse #doktor #rehabilitation #neuro #neurorehabilitation #physicaltherapy #therapist #medicaldoctor #md #physician
