This study aimed to use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to evaluate vastus medialis oblique
(VMO) fiber bundles in patients with recurrent patellar dislocation to explore the changes in muscle morphology and function.
Can vastus medialis oblique
be preferentially activated?
Muscle recruitment pattern for vastus medialis oblique
muscle: a systematic review
Electromyography of the vastus medialis oblique
and vasti in normal subjects during gait.
19] Potential contributing factors that have been studied are vastus medialis oblique
insufficiency, decreased quadriceps, hamstrings, and ilitibial band flexibility, femoral anteversion, increased quadriceps angle, and patellar hypermobility.
revealed increased recruitment of motor units in the vastus medialis oblique
muscle, expressed as peak torque, up to 24 hours after applying kinesio tape to the vastus medialis oblique
muscle of 27 healthy subjects with a mean age of 23 years.
the vastus medialis oblique
muscle--a muscle on the inner side of the knee which is a part of the quadriceps).
Numerous studies of patellar and McConnell taping in patients with PFPS have demonstrated a reduction in perceived pain, (34,35) improved neuromuscular activity, (34-37) evidence of improved dynamic postural control and performance, (33) and earlier onset (34,37) and increased vastus medialis oblique
The results could possibly be explained by an increased pull of the vastus medialis oblique
muscle in patients with large muscle mass, which would pull the patella medially and increase the potential for medial patellofemoral joint space narrowing progression.
Effects of Vastus Medialis Oblique
Retraining versus General Quadriceps Strengthening on Vasti Onset.
Three days later the post-trauma swelling was diminished, flexion was full, and hyperextension was possible, although quadriceps were exercised only to neutral and with the use of a muscle stimulator to further activate the vastus medialis oblique
