what is a particular exercise and carefully detail how to perform that movement. Something like a sit up or push up. What possible skeletal or muscular disorders may prevent an individual from completing your movement?
Ans. The possible skeletal or muscular disorders may prevent an individual from completing the body's movement
Muscular dystrophies are a group of genetic and heterogeneous neuromuscular disorders characterized by the primary wasting of skeletal muscle used during voluntary movements, in this case, a person can even lose the ability to walk
In Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), the mutation was the most severe form of muscular diseases in the dystrophin gene which results in weakness and degeneration of muscles, inhibition in the regeneration of muscular capacity, and chronic local inflammation which tends to substitute the myofibrils by connective and adipose tissue.
Also the progressive, as well as continuous skeletal muscle damage, is accompanied by the complete paralysis and death, usually through the respiratory tract and cardiac failure were observed in DMD patients. Muscle atrophy which is the counterpart of muscle hypertrophy, also known as sarcopenia - occurs in physiological conditions, eg. aging.
Apart from aging, muscle wasting is a feature that is associated with several pathological conditions along with chronic diseases such as immobilization following fractures or bed rest, malnutrition, cancer, CHF, CKD, COPD, burns, muscular dystrophies, AIDS, sepsis, and immune disorders.
Muscle depletion has important implications, exercise intolerance and inability to manage daily activities that eventually translate into poor quality of life.
Some of the most common diseases that can affect the skeletal system include:
