Congenital syndromes of insensitivity to pain were once regarded as a central pain asymbolia. Cross References Anaesthesia; Frontal lobe syndromes Anal Refiex Contraction of the external sphincter ani muscle in response to a scratch stimulus in the perianal region, testing the integrity of the S4/S5 roots, forms the anal or wink refiex. This refiex may be absent in some normal elderly individuals, and absence does not necessarily correlate with urinary incontinence. External anal responses to coughing and sniffing are part of a highly consistent and easily elicited polysynaptic refiex, whose characteristics resemble those of the conventional scratch-induced anal refiex. The anal refiex elicited by cough and sniff: validation of a neglected clinical sign. This is most commonly seen as a feature of the bulbar palsy of motor neurone disease. A motor disorder of speech production with preserved comprehension of spoken and written language has been termed pure anarthria; this syndrome has also been labelled as aphemia, phonetic disintegration, apraxic dysarthria, cortical dysarthria, verbal apraxia, subcortical motor aphasia, pure motor aphasia, and small or mini-Broca’s aphasia. It refiects damage in the left frontal 28 Anismus A operculum, but with sparing of Broca’s area. A pure progressive anarthria or slowly progressive anarthria may result from focal degeneration affecting the frontal operculum bilaterally (so-called Foix–Chavany–Marie syndrome). Slowly progressive anarthria with late anterior opercular syndrome: a variant form of frontal cortical atrophy syndromes. The “pure” form of the phonetic disintegration syndrome (pure anarthria): anatomo-clinical report of a single case. Cross References Aphemia; Bulbar palsy; Dysarthria Angioscotoma Angioscotomata are shadow images of the superficial retinal vessels on the underlying retina, a physiological scotoma. Cross Reference Scotoma Angor Animi Angor animi is the sense of dying or the feeling of impending death. It may be experienced on awakening from sleep or as a somesthetic aura of migraine. Cross Reference Aura Anhidrosis Anhidrosis, or hypohidrosis, is a loss or lack of sweating. This may be due to primary autonomic failure or due to pathology within the posterior hypothalamus (‘sympathetic area’). Anhidrosis may occur in various neurological disorders, including multiple system atrophy, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, caudal to a spinal cord lesion, and in some hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathies. Localized or generalized anhidrosis may be seen in Holmes–Adie syndrome, and unilateral anhidrosis may be seen in Horner’s syndrome if the symptomatic lesion is distal to the superior cervical ganglion. Cross References Holmes–Adie pupil, Holmes–Adie syndrome; Horner’s syndrome; Hyperhidrosis Anismus Anismus, also known as puborectalis syndrome, is paradoxical contraction of the external anal sphincter during attempted defaecation, leading to faecal retention and a complaint of constipation. This may occur as an idiopathic condition in isolation or as a feature of the off periods of idiopathic Parkinson’s disease. It -29 A Anisocoria is thought to represent a focal dystonia and may be helped temporarily by local injections of botulinum toxin. Cross References Dystonia; Parkinsonism Anisocoria Anisocoria is an inequality of pupil size. This may be physiological (said to occur in up to 15% of the population), in which case the inequality is usually mild and does not vary with degree of ambient illumination; or pathological, with many possible causes. Affected pupil is constricted (miosis; oculosympathetic paresis), as in: Horner’s syndrome; Argyll Robertson pupil; Cluster headache. Anisocoria greater in bright light/less in dim light suggests a defect in parasympathetic innervation to the pupil. Clinical characteristics and pharmacological testing may help to establish the underlying diagnosis in anisocoria. Cross References Argyll Robertson pupil; Holmes–Adie pupil, Holmes–Adie syndrome; Horner’s syndrome; Miosis; Mydriasis Annular Scotoma An annular or ring scotoma suggests retinal disease, as in retinitis pigmentosa or cancer-associated retinopathy (paraneoplastic retinal degeneration). This may be detected as abrupt cut-offs in spontaneous speech with circumlocutions and/or paraphasic substitutions. Patients may be able to point to named objects despite being unable to name them, suggesting a problem in word retrieval but with preserved comprehension. Anomia occurs with pathologies affecting the left temporoparietal area, but since it occurs in all varieties of aphasia is of little precise localizing or diagnostic value. The term anomic aphasia is reserved for unusual cases in which a naming problem overshadows all other deficits. Anomia may often be seen as a residual deficit following recovery from other types of aphasia. Anomia may occur with any dominant hemisphere space-occupying lesion, and as a feature of semantic dementia, being more prominent in this condition than in Alzheimer’s disease. Cross References Aphasia; Circumlocution; Paraphasia Anosmia Anosmia is the inability to perceive smells due to damage to the olfactory pathways (olfactory neuroepithelium, olfactory nerves, rhinencephalon). Kallman’s syndrome, hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism, a disorder of neuronal migration) or, much more commonly, acquired. Rhinological disease (allergic rhinitis, coryza) is by far the most common cause; this may also account for the impaired sense of smell in smokers. Head trauma is the most common neurological cause, due to shearing off of the olfactory fibres as they pass through the cribriform plate. Recovery is possible in this situation due to the capacity for neuronal and axonal regeneration within the olfactory pathways. Olfactory dysfunction is also described in Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, possibly as an early phenomenon, due to pathological involvement of olfactory pathways. Cross References Age-related signs; Ageusia; Cacosmia; Dysgeusia; Mirror movements; Parosmia Anosodiaphoria Babinski (1914) used the term anosodiaphoria to describe a disorder of body schema in which patients verbally acknowledge a clinical problem. La belle indifference describes a similar lack of concern for acknowledged disabilities which are psychogenic. Cross References Anosognosia; Belle indifference; Personification of paralyzed limbs Anosognosia Anosognosia refers to a patient’s unawareness or denial of their illness. The term was first used by von Monakow (1885) and has been used to describe denial of blindness (Anton’s syndrome), deafness, hemiplegia (Babinski), hemianopia, aphasia, and amnesia. Some authorities would question whether this unawareness is a true agnosia or rather a defect of higher-level cognitive integration. Anosognosia with hemiplegia most commonly follows right hemisphere injury (parietal and temporal lobes) and may be associated with left hemineglect and left-sided hemianopia; it is also described with right thalamic and basal ganglia lesions. Many patients with posterior aphasia (Wernicke type) are unaware that their output is incomprehensible or jargon, possibly through a failure to monitor their own output. Cerebrovascular disease is the most common pathology associated with anosognosia, although it may also occur with neurodegenerative disease, for example, the cognitive anosognosia in some patients with Alzheimer’s disease. The neuropsychological mechanisms of anosognosia are unclear: the hypothesis that it might be accounted for by personal neglect (asomatognosia), which is also more frequently observed after right hemisphere lesions, would seem to have been disproved experimentally by studies using selective hemisphere anaesthesia in which the two may be dissociated, a dissociation which may also be observed clinically. In Alzheimer’s disease, anosognosia may be related to memory dysfunction and executive dysfunction At a practical level, anosognosia may lead to profound difficulties with neurorehabilitation. Temporary resolution of anosognosia has been reported following vestibular stimulation. Contribution a l’etude des troubles mentaux dans l’hemiplegie organique cerebrale (anosognosie). Anosognosia in patients with cerebrovascular lesions: a study of causative factors.

Forward fiexion of the head onto the chest is a feature in the ‘dropped head syndrome’. Cross References Dropped head syndrome; Retrocollis; Torticollis Antefiexion Antefiexion is forward fiexion of the trunk, as typical of the stooped posture seen in Parkinson’s disease. Cross Reference Parkinsonism -33 A Anton’s Syndrome Anton’s Syndrome Anton’s syndrome is cortical blindness accompanied by denial of the visual defect (visual anosognosia), with or without confabulation. The syndrome most usually results from bilateral posterior cerebral artery territory lesions causing occipital or occipitoparietal infarctions but has occasionally been described with anterior visual pathway lesions associated with frontal lobe lesions.

The subscapularis mens health 8 week workout purchase cheapest flomax, supraspinatus prostate cancer 5 year survival buy flomax 0.2mg on line, infraspinatus mens health arm workout discount flomax 0.4 mg otc, and teres minor muscles and their related tendons and ligaments make up the rotator cuff (fgure 2 man health 9 news order flomax 0.2mg on-line. The rotator cuff plays a vital role in maintaining the humeral head in the correct position, supporting the more powerful muscle—the deltoid (fgure 2. The sternoclavicular joint connects the shoulder complex to the axial skeleton and allows for elevation and depression, protraction and retraction, and long-axis rotation of the clavicle. The acromioclavicular joint connects the clavicle to the acromion process of the shoulders 25 scapula and contributes to total arm movement. The two principle movements are elevation and depression during abduction of the humerus and a gliding movement as the shoulder joint fexes and extends. The articular surfaces of the glenohumeral joint are the head of the humerus and the glenoid fossa of the scapula. The way both are curved allows for a great amount of motion in all directions yet also provides minimal stability. The scapulothoracic joint not only serves as a protective mechanism for someone falling with an outstretched arm but also assists with glenohumeral stability and enhances arm–trunk motion. The deltoid, coracobrachialis, teres major, and rotator cuff group are the intrinsic muscles of the glenohumeral joint. The latissimus dorsi and pectoralis major are the extrinsic muscles of the glenohumeral joint. The biceps brachii and triceps brachii also are involved in glenohumeral movement. Primarily, the biceps brachii assists in fexing and horizontally adducting the shoulder, and the long head of the triceps brachii assists in extension and horizontal abduction. In the loading phase of the serve, which puts the shoulder in maximal external rotation, there is moderately high muscular activity of the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, biceps brachii, and serratus anterior, highlighting the importance of scapular stabilization exercises as well as anterior and posterior rotator cuff strength exercises. The acceleration phase, which begins with maximal external rotation and ends with contact, features high muscular activity of the pectoralis major, subscapularis, latissimus dorsi, and serratus anterior. These muscles are very active during the forceful concentric internal rotation of the humerus. During the follow-through phase after contact, the posterior rotator cuff muscles, serratus anterior, biceps brachii, deltoid, and latissimus dorsi show moderately high activity to help create eccentric muscle contractions to slow down the humerus and protect the glenohumeral joint. Tennis Strokes and Shoulder Movement For a tennis player, the shoulder is one of the most used (and sometimes overused) areas of the body. Typically, this makes it one of the most injured areas, especially in competitive tennis players. In addition to the repetitive demands on the shoulder, tennis also requires explosive movement patterns and highly intensive maximal-effort concentric and eccentric muscular work. Groundstrokes require predominantly horizontal actions at the shoulder, using a combination of abduction and external rotation for the forehand backswing and backhand follow-through and a combination of abduction and internal rotation for the forehand forward swing and backhand backswing. The tennis serve is a more complex sequence that uses a combination of horizontal and vertical movements. Horizontal abduction and external rotation occur during the backswing, with scapular retraction and depression into the loading phase. From the loading phase, scapular elevation, horizontal abduction, and shoulder extension move the arm toward contact. Internal rotation, 26 tennis anatomy shoulder extension, and adduction complete the follow-through. The muscles of the rotator cuff play a vital role in stabilizing the humerus in the shoulder during all tennis movements, but they are critical during the acceleration and follow-through phases of the serve (fgure 2. The muscles of the rotator cuff aid in power production during acceleration and provide eccentric strength to help slow down the arm after contact during the follow-through. It has been reported that during the explosive internal rotation of the serve, shoulder rotation can reach speeds from 1,074 to 2,300 degrees per second. After contact, deceleration has to occur through eccentric strength of the rotator cuff and Latissimus dorsi Teres major Supraspinatus Subscapularis Middle Supraspinatus trapezius Infraspinatus Teres minor Teres major Rhomboid major Lower trapezius Latissimus dorsi Figure 2. At the professional level, male players reach speeds on the serve close to 140 miles per hour (225 km/h). Tennis volleys require smaller muscle and joint movements than either groundstrokes or serves. For a forehand volley, slight external rotation and slight adduction followed by abduction of the shoulder allow the player to complete the stroke. The backhand volley involves slight internal rotation and abduction followed by slight external rotation and adduction of the shoulder. Exercises for the Shoulder the exercises that follow will beneft the shoulder joint. In particular, you will develop strong muscles surrounding the shoulder joint to both prevent injuries and enhance performance. While performing these exercises, contract the core muscles to develop a strong midsection. This will help with balance and posture as well as the transfer of forces from the lower to the upper body in each stroke. For exercises requiring resistance tubing, use a cable machine or attach the tubing to a stable object. Although an exercise program should be highly individualistic, each exercise includes some general guidelines. An initial exercise program that includes the following exercises should include a proper balance between front and back and left and right sides of the body. We recommend starting with two or three sets of 10 to 12 repetitions until you have a strong base. Make sure you rest adequately between exercise sessions (at least one day) to help your muscles recover. Of course, the best training program is designed with your individual needs and performance goals in mind. Baseline ftness level, age, experience, and tournament schedule are all important factors. A certifed strength and conditioning specialist with a good knowledge of tennis would be very helpful for designing a program as well as instructing on proper technique for each of the exercises. While keeping the arms straight, elevate both arms to shoulder height, palms down. It is important to develop the anterior aspect of the shoulder because this directly infuences the acceleration aspects of the groundstroke and serve. A weak anterior portion of the shoulder will require the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the biceps and pectorals to perform more work than is necessary, and this could result in injury. While keeping the arms straight, elevate both arms out to the sides (abduction), bringing the weights to shoulder height while keeping the palms turned down. This is a component seen during tennis strokes, specifcally in the backhand groundstroke from the end of the backswing all the way through the followthrough. Although the rotator cuff muscles help stabilize the shoulder joint during tennis strokes, having a strong and fatigue-resistant deltoid muscle will help protect the shoulder even more. It is especially important for those who use a one-handed backhand stroke because the lateral deltoid is one of the major muscles involved in both the acceleration and deceleration aspects of the stroke. The lateral deltoid also is important during the backswing component of the serve as the arm is in abduction. With a slight bend in the knees, fex at the waist while keeping the back straight. While keeping an approximate angle of 90 degrees at the elbows, slowly raise the forearms, leading with the dumbbells, to shoulder height. It is necessary in all strokes, but the greatest forces are seen in the deceleration of the arm after ball contact in the serve. It is important to have adequate strength in the muscles at the back of the shoulder. This will aid in the development of strength in a movement that directly correlates with the backhand groundstroke. Squeezing the shoulder blades together (retraction) at the top of the movement activates the rhomboids to a greater extent, which helps develop appropriate scapular control and prevent shoulder injuries. Stand erect with feet shoulder-width apart and knees slightly bent, with a 90-degree angle at the shoulders and a 90-degree angle at the elbows. Slowly lower the elbows toward the hips in a controlled manner by contracting the rhomboids in the upper back.
