Getting Powerful Shapely Glutes
Minto et al. 67 remind us that since the late 1950s administration of androgens such as testosterone and 19-nortestosterone in esterified form has been by i.m. injection 68 . These provided sustained release. Not all oil-soluble agents give prolonged release on injection in oily solvents 69 , clearly because one key parameter is the partition coefficient between oil and tissue fluid 70 . There are many other factors. Minto and colleagues explored the difference in human subjects of nandrolone as its decanoate and phenylpropionate. Injected into the gluteal muscle 4 ml of the phe-nylpropionate ester was superior to the decanoate. Such studies have only been made possible by advances in analytical technology. Similarly comparisons of flu-phenazine hydrochlroide, its enanthate, and decanoate were carried out in detail some 15 years after the introduction of these long chain esters 71 the decanoate
Bring your buttocks close to the edge of the chair. Keep your feet at least 8 inches apart, with one foot slightly in front of the other. Rock your trunk quickly back and forth a few times to build up momentum. On your last rock forward, bring your shoulders forward, just past your knees, and push down with your hands on the arms of the chair or the cushion while you straighten up to a standing position.
Are there any other surgeries commonly performed following gastric bypass Are these also routinely covered by insurance
After the dramatic weight loss achieved with gastric bypass many men and women find themselves with a great deal of redundant skin in the upper arms. Some people call these batwings. It has been my experience that batwings are more troubling to women than men. Unfortunately because batwings rarely if ever result in a medical problem, you will be on your own if you choose to have surgery to remove this excess skin. The same is true regarding the removal of excess skin around the buttocks.
A thorough history is the most useful clinical tool to diagnose and treat hip disease. The clinician should inquire about the location, frequency, pattern, and radiation of symptoms. Clicking, locking, and other mechanical symptoms are common with labral injuries, whereas pain, stiffness, and decreased hip range of motion may suggest an inflammatory process. The clinician should establish which factors exacerbate or relieve the symptoms, and whether the complaints are of an acute or chronic nature. Intraarticular hip pain usually presents as groin discomfort and may radiate to the anterior thigh. Pain which emanates from the thigh or buttock with radiation to the knee or below can often be attributed to a neurogenic disorder 12,13 .
This massage must be brisk and of fairly short duration, e.g. 7-10 minutes for each area. It must be stimulating to create alertness and focus. It should concentrate on the body parts involved in the performance, but both sides of the body must be treated to maintain balance. It is usual to include the back with both upper and lower parts of the body. For example, for throwers cover the back, shoulders and arms for runners cover the back, buttocks and legs.
Gluteus maximus Figure 8-23 The inferior gluteal nerve, which innervates the gluteus maximus muscle. The iliotibial tract is innervated by cutaneous branches from the sciatic nerve. The popliteal acu-reflex point appears on the popliteal fossa, and the actual innervation is unclear. Gluteus medius Piriformis Gemellus superior Obturatorius internus Gemellus inferior Figure 8-23 The inferior gluteal nerve, which innervates the gluteus maximus muscle. The iliotibial tract is innervated by cutaneous branches from the sciatic nerve. The popliteal acu-reflex point appears on the popliteal fossa, and the actual innervation is unclear. The H24 common fibular ARP is just anteroinferior to the head of the fibula (Fig. 8-25). The common fib-ular nerve is one of the two terminal branches of the sciatic nerve. The finger-sized sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the body, is formed by the ventral rami of L4 to S3. It leaves the pelvis through the greater sciatic foramen and runs inferiolaterally...
The measuring device should be checked for accuracy using a standard 2-m steel tape. Subjects should be measured to the nearest 0.1 cm. Subjects, in minimal clothing with bare heads and feet, should stand straight, arms hanging loosely to the side, feet together and with heels, buttocks and shoulder blades in contact with the vertical surface of the stadiometer. Errors occur if subjects do not stand straight, do not keep heels on the ground, or overstretch. Diurnal variation results in people being 0.5-1 cm shorter in the evening than in the morning. Waist and hip circumferences are measured to the nearest 0.1cm using a flexible narrow nonstretch tape in adults wearing minimal clothing, standing straight but not pulling in their stomachs. Waist circumference is measured halfway between the lower ribs and the iliac crest, while hip circumference is measured at the largest circumference around the buttocks. Measurement error occurs if the tape is pulled too...
It leaves the pelvis through the inferior part of the greater sciatic foramen and under the piriformis muscle, accompanied by the gluteal artery. The nerve enters the gluteus maximus muscle deeply from underneath. In many patients with chronic lower back pain and lower limb pain, more sensitive points can be found around the H16 inferior gluteal ARP on the gluteus medius and minimus muscles. These sensitive points should be treated along with the H16 inferior gluteal ARP.
The sister condition of celiac disease is dermatitis herpetiformis, which is the skin manifestation of gluten-sensitive enteropathy. It is an extremely itchy immunobullous disease that affects the extensor surfaces of elbows, knees, buttocks, the hairline, and the torso and is much less common than celiac disease. Probably the ratio between the two in geographic areas where both have been estimated is approximately 10 1. However, in countries where there has traditionally been less celiac disease awareness, such as North America, the ratio may be closer to 3 1.
Lepromatous leprosy, the form with the least cell-mediated immunity, has the greatest number of bacilli and is characterized by poorly defined, widespread, symmetric erythematous macules, papules, and nodules initially. The most common sites of involvement are the face, buttocks, and lower extremities. Involvement of the face can lead to leonine facies due to diffuse infiltration with the M. leprae bacilli (Fig. 8). Later signs include infiltration of the ear lobes, saddle nose, madarosis, ichthyosis of the lower extremities, and stocking-glove peripheral neuropathy. In severe cases, ocular symptoms develop due to infiltration of facial and trigeminal nerve branches (17).
Pain, and still others such as disk herniation with pain that radiates into the buttock or down a leg. In contrast, inflammatory spine pain is usually characterized by stiffness that is improved by moderate activity and worsened by rest and lying supine. The pain is usually relieved by NSAIDs to some degree. Infectious causes can be either acute or insidious in onset, but the pain tends to be constant.
Refined food depletes cortisol, a hormone from the adrenals, which is required to shut off insulin when protein in the diet is low. When insulin stays elevated, your extra carbs are converted to fat around the belly in males and buttocks in females. Over time, with a breakdown of adrenal and pancreas function, exhaustion occurs. Once exhausted, the body no longer burns carbs effectively and therefore cannot provide fuel for the body. At that point, your body begins to rob muscle of nutrients. Arms begin to breakdown first resulting in skinny arms and legs. You end up with a Humpty Dumpty physique. It is best to then minimize refined carbs and sweet fruits and focus on more protein. Build up your natural body to maintain an A-1 spiritual body.
Weight gain and altered body habitus Steroids and ACTH result in an increased appetite. Their use can result in tremendous weight gain, even as high as 70 pounds in a few days. There is also a redistribution of body fat that women in particular do not like. Fat is deposited over the face and upper part of the chest and neck, abdomen, and buttocks. As easy as it is to gain the weight, it is difficult to take it off. When caloric intake is managed (restricted), the deposition of fat over the upper back, abdomen, and buttocks is minimized, but not eliminated. The alteration of body image may be traumatic, particularly to women. Acne often accompanies the use of steroids and ACTH. It can be easily managed with use of low doses of tetracy-cline antibiotics.
Dermatological With the exceptions of rashes and other skin conditions resulting from idiosyncratic or allergic reactions to drugs, most drug use complications involving skin damage result from the use of hypodermic needles or other means of drug injection that involve breaking the skin surface. There are three primary types of injection (1) subcutaneous, also known as ''skin-popping,'' wherein the needle is injected into or directly under the skin surface (2) intramuscular (IM), wherein the needle is injected into muscle mass, often in the shoulder or buttock and (3) intravenous (IV), direct injection into a blood vessel. Skin damage can result from repeated injection in the same area, failure to clean the injection site, nonsterile needles, and or impurities or insoluble materials in the substance injected. Adulterants in the drugs, liquids used to dilute the drugs and contaminated injection paraphernalia, and the surface of the injection site all provide sources of viruses,...
Fat is the caloric reserve material of nature. The whale stores fat in his subcutaneous layers against the rigours of life at the Pole, the camel stores it in his hump against hard times in the desert, the African sheep stores it in his tail and his buttocks against the day when even the parched grass shall have withered away. But fats are more than stores of reserve caloric material. They are heat insulators, they are fillers of dead spaces, and they are facilitators of movement in rigid compartments such as the orbit, the pelvis, and the capsules of joints. They are also essential building materials. Animal fats contain three groups of substances the neutral fats which are chiefly energy providers, the lipids containing phosphorus that enter into most tissues and bulk largely in the brain and the central nervous system, and the sterols that are the basis of most hormones.
Largest horizontal circumference around the buttocks Level of iliac crest circumferences measured at four sites (immediately below the lowest rib, at the narrowest point, midpoint between the lowest rib and the iliac crest, and immediately above the iliac crest) have been compared and found to differ from each other. Other work has shown that the highest correlations with risk factors were obtained when WHR was calculated as the waist measured at the point midway between the lower rib margin and iliac crest (approximately 1 inch ( 2.5 cm) above the umbilicus) or when the waist was measured at the umbilicus and hips measured at the widest point of the buttocks. Although two different waist measurements have been demonstrated to perform equally well, the bony landmark measurement (the point midway between the lower rib margin and iliac crest) may be preferred since the umbilicus may shift position when an individual gains or loses weight. The World Health Organization (WHO) has...
They will occur on an individual with poor personal hygiene and will live and reproduce in seams and fibres of clothing, feeding off the skin. Lesions may appear as papules, scabs and in severe cases as pigmented dry, scaly skin. Secondary bacterial infection is often present. A client affected by body lice will complain of itching, especially in the shoulder, back and buttock area. This is a contagious parasitic skin condition caused by the female mite burrowing into the horny layer of the skin where she lays her eggs. The first noticeable symptoms of this condition is severe itching which worsens at night. Papules, pustules and crusted lesions may also develop. Common sites for this infestation are the ulnar borders of the hand, palms of the hands and between the fingers and toes. Other sites include the axillary folds, buttocks, breasts in the female and external genitalia in the male.
The iliotibial band is a nonelastic collagen cord that stretches from the iliac crest, blends with the tensor fasciae latae and gluteus maximus muscles, and then descends to insert into the tubercle on the lateral proximal tibia. The tensor fasciae latae muscle flexes, abducts, and medially rotates the hip joint and stabilizes the knee.
For example, when treating low-back pain, the lumbar muscles, gluteal muscles, hamstring muscles, calf muscles, hip flexor muscles, abdominal muscles, iliotibial band, pectoral muscles, and even neck muscles can be treated in the same session. The same procedure can be repeated in subsequent sessions until complete healing is achieved. The same needling procedure will also be effective with asymptomatic healthy persons for preventing low-back, hip, and neck problems.
Most important, there are healthy and unhealthy ways for fat to be distributed in the body. A normal man carries his fat above the waist. A normal woman carries hers in the hips and buttocks area. When your fat crosses the line and your body begins to take on the fat pattern of the opposite gender, then you have developed a potentially dangerous configuration known as a reverse fat pattern. This book shows you how to identify that pattern and how to eat in a way that will help burn fat and normalize where you carry your fat weight.
A very important and unquestionable point is that pelvic floor muscle exercises are relevant to the treatment of ED in patients with PCa that will be submitted to RP. Most physiotherapy treatments for ED focus also on pelvic floor muscles. It is relevant to consider also the arrangement of the muscles at the base of the penis, as well as the other local structures that, with the time without erection, can lead to veno-occlusive ED. This undesirable condition is the result of a sequence of penile morphologic alterations post-RP. The physiotherapist will guide the patient to do exercises for the muscles direct related to the pelvic floor and also to the muscles indirectly related with the pelvis, such as abdominal and gluteal muscles. When they are contracted an increase of the local blood flow to the pelvic region is verified. This process seems to lead to a release of NO to the penis, acting on endothelium vasodilation and dependent on the flow, increasing in oxygen supply to the...
In the early 1970s, electronic means of continuously monitoring a baby's heart rate during labor became available, and intensive care for newborns was beginning to result in dramatic improvements in the survival of seriously ill infants. In addition, the frequency of serious maternal complications of cesarean birth had continued to decline. As a result of these improvements in the care of mothers and infants, doctors became more inclined to recommend cesarean delivery in situations where either the mother or infant were at any increased risk of illness or long-term developmental abnormality that might be caused by vaginal birth. For example, before 1970 almost all breech births (in which the buttocks or feet of a baby rather than its head are the first to be born) were by vaginal delivery, but by 1988 almost all such births were by cesarean delivery. The increase in the use of cesarean delivery to prevent harm to the fetus from labor and vaginal delivery accounted for the increase in...
Conduct a sensory body map exercise by yourself or with your partner to explore the exact locations of pleasant, decreased, or altered sensations. This exercise can enhance intimacy, as well as teach you about changes in your sensual and sexual pleasure zones. As with the treatment of all sexual symptoms in MS, experimentation and communication are the keys to maximizing sexuality.
Studies of adipose tissue distribution, its causes, and its effects on morbidity and mortality are fundamental in the field of obesity. An ideal measure of body fat should be ''precise with small measurement error accessible, in terms of simplicity, cost, and easy to perform acceptable to the subject well documented with published reference values.'' There is no consensus as to which methods best define and describe adipose tissue and its distribution. Several studies have noted that the increased risk of obesity is related to mesenteric and portal depots of adipose tissue. However, subcutaneous adipose tissue, particularly around the hips and buttocks, appears not to increase health risk.
For a variety of reasons, including hormones and metabolic processes that affect fat storage in particular areas of the body, when men and women first begin to gain weight, they do not store it in the same place. A typical overweight man looks like an apple. He carries his weight above the waist, resulting in the classic bulging abdomen, also known as the beer belly. A typical overweight woman carries her fat below the waist in the hips and the buttocks, resulting in a pear-shaped silhouette. When obesity sets in, people often develop a reverse fat pattern. A man will not only have a huge belly but will start putting on considerable weight below the waist in the hips and buttocks. Women will not only store fat below the waist but will carry a large amount of abdominal fat, turning them
Gluteus maximus Large muscle covering the buttock Gluteus medius Muscle is partly covered by the gluteus maximus Lies beneath the gluteus medius Attachments are the same as for gluteus medius outer surface of the ilium at one end to the outer surface of the femur at the other end See above re gluteus medius
Dermatitis herpetiformis This is characterized by an extremely pruritic papulovesicular eruption, which usually occurs symmetrically on the elbows, knees, buttocks, and back. About 80 of patients with dermatitis herpetiformis have small intestine histology indistinguishable from celiac sprue. The diagnosis is established by skin biopsy demonstrating granular IgA deposits in areas of normal appearing skin. A majority of patients with the skin lesion who undergo small bowel biopsy have intestinal mucosal changes of celiac disease. The skin lesions, as well as small bowel histology, improve on a gluten-free diet. Dapsone is an effective short-term treatment for dermatitis herpetiformis however, it does not have any impact on management of small bowel enteropathy. Also, those with dermatitis her-petiformis who are not compliant with the gluten-free diet are at higher risk for malignancy, as are those with celiac disease.
There are normal and predictable periods in life when body-image distortion occurs. One of these is puberty, when rapid changes in body size, body shape, and secondary sex characteristics take place. During this time, females tend to gain fat in the breasts, hips, buttocks, and thighs, developing a more pear-shaped body. Adolescent females may view their bodies as being heavier than they actually are, especially when compared to fashion models or celebrities. Adolescent males tend to gain height and muscle mass during puberty, and they may view their bodies as smaller than they actually are when compared to bodybuilders or professional athletes.
Case 11 A 16-year-old football lineman presents with 3 weeks of low back pain in the off-season. He has been doing team conditioning and weight training and remembers his back hurting after squatting 350 pounds. He has right sided low back pain that goes into his buttocks region. He denies weakness into his legs. He has pain when he drives in the car or sits for a long time. Disc disease, a bulging of the intervertebral disc with or without nerve root impingement, is more frequently an adult back disorder but does occur in adolescents. Athletes lifting weights are particularly prone to disc problems due to improper positioning or lifting excessively heavy weight especially with squatting. Athletes present with low back pain that may radiate into the buttocks or leg or cause parasthesis into the lower extremities. Pain worsens with forward flexion, sitting, or driving. Straight leg raises may be positive however, some adolescent disc bulging may be more central without nerve root...
Case 12 A 16-year-old tennis player has had 3 weeks of worsening low back pain. She thinks it may have started after twisting to hit a forehand out of her reach. She isolates the pain to the right low back and has pain with sudden movements and twisting. She has some radiation of pain into the buttocks. She has extreme tenderness when she tries to get out of bed, a chair, or the car. She is tender over the right SI joint and has decreased mobility and pain on this side with forward flexion. She has a positive Patrick FABER test.
Effleurage to back of leg and buttock deep effleurage to thigh and buttock double-handed kneading to thigh and buttock reinforced kneading to top of thigh and buttock deep effleurage to thigh and buttock Hacking, cupping, beating and pounding are used on the buttock for an invigorating massage and for treatment of cellulite.
Dry needling acupuncture is very effective in treating this injury. Needles can be applied to the painful tissues with two to three needles per square centimeter, including the gluteal muscles, iliotibial band, and hip flexors. Two treatment sessions per week should be provided.
Physical activity influences adolescents' growth and body composition as well as their propensity for obesity. Inadequate nutrition can delay sexual maturation, slow or stop linear growth and compromise peak bone mass as well as cognitive development, with the latter possibly affecting learning, concentration, and school performance. Studies continue to show that students achieve higher test scores if they consume a meal before the test. A boy's physical maturation tends to increase his satisfaction with his body because of increased size and muscular development. In contrast, a girl's physical maturation tends to decrease body satisfaction. Reassurance that fat accumulation in the hips, thigh, and buttocks is normal during adolescence will help to allay this anxiety.
The weak stretched muscles that require strengthening are the back extensors, namely erector spinae (in some cases the abdominals and gluteus maximus are weak). Sitting - lean forward, taking the pressure from the buttocks on to the thigh, then extend the back to create a lumbar lordosis. Hold for a count of ten then release.
Physical exercise has the potential to cause overuse injuries to muscles, bones, and joints as well as injuries caused by accidents. Additionally, preexisting conditions can be aggravated upon initiation of a physical activity program, and chronic, repetitive activities can result in injuries. For instance, running can result in injuries to muscles and joints of the lower limbs and back, swimming can cause or irritate shoulder injuries, and cycling can cause or worsen problems to the hands, back, or buttocks. Fortunately, the recommendation in this report to accumulate a given amount of activity does not depend on any particular exercise or sports form. Hence, the activity recommendation can be implemented in spite of possible mild, localized injuries by varying the types of exercise (e.g., walking instead ofjogging). Recalling the dictum of do no harm, the physical activity recommendations in this report are intended to be healthful and invigorating. Activity-related injuries are...
Cross-training benefits of an elliptical machine with an adjustable ramp are unattainable on any other machine. As the stride changes, the motion targets different lower body muscles, simulating activities such as hiking, cycling, running, walking and cross-country skiing. Depending on the angle of the cross ramp and the direction of the striding motion, you can put slightly greater emphasis on your quadriceps, hamstrings, calves or glutes.
Rowing is regarded by many fitness experts to be the most complete exercise ever. One advantage of rowing is that it works all the major muscle groups in the body, including the legs, buttocks, back, abdominals and arms. In addition, all the muscles involved are worked through a wider range of motion than most other exercises, allowing your muscles to stretch, and thereby increasing flexibility and joint mobility. Rowing is a safe, non-jarring impact-free activity and is ideal for rehabilitative exercise, although it's not a good choice if you have low back problems.
A baby's buttocks, genitals, and even thighs may become red and sore due to contact with soiled diapers. This is caused by irritating chemicals released from urine and feces, or in the detergent used to wash nondisposable diapers. The rash may develop into candidiasis as a secondary infection, especially if a baby or breast-feeding mother is taking antibiotics. SELF-HELP Wash the baby's bottom with a solution of calendula and hypericum, dry well, and apply calendula cream. Change the baby's diapers frequently.
This is an abnormally increased inward curvature of the lumbar spine. In this condition the pelvis tilts forward and as the back is hollow, the abdomen and buttocks protrude and the knees may be hyperextended. Typical problems associated with this condition are tightening of the back muscles followed by a weakening of the abdominal muscles. Hamstring problems are common because of the anterior tilt of the pelvis. Increased weight gain or pregnancy may cause or exacerbate this condition.
Spondylolysis is the most common cause of low back pain in adolescents seeking medical evaluation most commonly seen in the lower lumbar spine at L4 or L5. A spondylolysis is a stress fracture of the pars inter-articularis. Athletes who perform repetitive hyperextension, such as dancers, gymnasts, divers, wrestlers, rowers, soccer players, and football lineman, are at increased risk to develop spondylolysis. Low back pain may be unilateral or bilateral, of acute or insidious onset, or worsen after an inciting event. Some may experience radiation of pain into the buttocks. Pain with lumbar spine hyperextension or one-legged hyperextension (the stork test) is sensitive but not specific for spondylolysis (Fig. 10). Examination may also reveal hyperlordosis and tight hamstrings. Radiographs of the lumbar spine should include an AP, lateral, and left and right oblique to evaluate for a stress fracture. On oblique radiographs, the broken neck on the Scottie dog represents the pars defect...
Back pain may be caused by sprains or strains related to overuse. This problem is less common in adolescent athletes than in adult athletes (6 vs. 27 ) (7). The activity or movement that triggered the injury aggravates pain, and there is often localized tenderness (7). There should be no associated neurological signs, although pain may be referred to the buttock or upper thigh (40). Patients improve with conservative measures over several weeks to 2 months (7,40). The pain associated with spondylolisthesis and spondylolysis is typically a mild to moderate aching pain in the lower back, which is aggravated by extension and flexion, and relieved by rest. There may be paraspinal tenderness in the L5-S1 region, buttock pain, or pain radiating to the posterior thigh or buttocks (44). The onset is usually insidious unless it is precipitated by an acute fracture (1). Patients generally have tight hamstrings, which leads to a stiff legged gait with hip and knee flexion and a short stride...
Dry needling acupuncture is an effective treatment for this injury in cases where surgery is not required. Needles can be applied directly into the inflamed, tender, swollen, and painful area and into related muscles on the hip, thigh, and lower leg, such as the gluteal muscles, adductors, and abductors. In addition, the treatment is used to balance the entire musculoskeletal system. Two treatment sessions per week should be provided. If surgery is required, dry needling acupuncture can be used before and after surgery and during rehabilitation.
Minor chemical burns usually heal without further treatment. Medical care is required if the child has symptoms of shock (fainting, pale skin, shallow breathing) if the chemical burned through the first layer of skin and the burn covers an area more than two or three inches in diameter, or if the chemical burn occurred on the eyes, hands, feet, face, groin, or buttocks, or over a major joint.
Only about 40 percent of patients with herpes ever have symptoms. When they do, the first appearance of herpes lesions is the worst, with many painful lesions lasting up to 10 days it may take two to three weeks to completely recover from this first attack. When the sores fade away, the virus remains behind. The virus is now latent. During the first attack, some people have a generalized sick feeling, with swollen glands in the pelvic area and fever, fatigue, headache, muscle ache, and nausea. People with no antibodies to herpes type I (cold sores) usually will be sicker during a first attack. Girls usually have lesions on the cervix or vulva, with recurrences on the vulva, the skin between vagina and anus, upper thighs, anal area, or buttocks. Boys have lesions on the head or shaft of the penis and the anus.
Scabies is an infection of the skin caused by a microscopic mite. For reasons unknown, this infection is a common problem in adults with Down's syndrome and tends to be a worse infection than in the general population. The mite is transmitted by skin-to-skin contact. The rash is extremely itchy and typically appears as small, raised red dots. These dots can appear in lines (the mites burrowing under the skin), but are more often seen in the webs between fingers, around the waist, on the buttocks and around the bra line in females. If the affected person scratches the rash a lot, it can develop a secondary
This term describes pain that is transmitted along the sciatic nerve, the principal nerve in the leg and is connected to nerves in the pelvis and spine. Sciatica pain in the distribution of the sciatic nerve may be felt in the thigh or buttock and below the knee. It is usually referred pain from the nerve root or from an abnormal joint such as degeneration of a disk from osteoarthritis (see page 196) or from a prolapsed intervertebral disk, or from spinal stenosis. Sciatic pain is exacerbated by bending, sneezing, or coughing. SELF-HELP Osteopathy, physiotherapy, or acupuncture may relieve the condition. Rest the back well by lying flat on a fairly hard mattress with a firm pad 2-3 in (5-7 cm) thick beneath the head. Try placing a hot-water bottle on the affected area. Learn how to lift and carry heavy objects correctly. Swimming may be beneficial.
In women fat is found mainly on the outer thighs, hips and buttocks, abdomen, midriff and back of the arms. In men it is usually distributed around the waist. It is more common and more widely distributed in the female because of the greater amount of oestrogen produced. This hormone encourages the laying down of fat.
Flexion of the hip joint will have been performed with flexion of the knee as already explained. Full extension of the hip joint can only be carried out in prone lying or side lying. In prone lying with the client's foot over the edge of the bed, place one hand on the buttock. The other hand is placed under and above the knee with the client's lower leg supported along the forearm. Lift the straight leg into extension. Ensure that movement does not occur in the lumbar spine, by applying pressure downwards on the buttock and preventing the anterior aspect of the joint raising off the bed.
Corporal punishment is the application of physical force to the body for the purposes of discipline. Corporal punishment of children, especially in schools, is declining in acceptability and use. Advocates, such as the Family Research Council, make careful distinctions between physical punishment and physical violence or abuse, and often cite the Bible in support of corporal punishment. Recommended forms of corporal punishment include spanking of the buttocks with the open hand and light slaps to the hand of the child. Opponents of corporal punishment cite studies indicating that corporal punishment can cause physical harm, is ineffective for changing behavior, leads to abuse, and may lower the intelligence of the child. Changing social attitudes toward corporal punishment have led to the prosecution of some parents and lawsuits against school personnel using corporal punishment. Many groups, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, recommend against corporal punishment and...
