ABSTRACT

Objectives : Muscle tone is proportional to passive tension, so passive tension of antagonist can be measured by measuring passive ROM of a joint. Considering close correlation between movement and muscle tension, we hypothesized that tension patterns of upper and lower limbs would exit, and we tried to prove the existence of tension patterns of shoulder and hip joints by measuring of passive ROM of those joints. Methods : We collected 110 volunteers(75 men and 35 women), whose age was from 20 to 30, BMI was less than 23kg/m2 and who had no musculoskeletal disorder. we had passively horizontally adducted and abducted shoulder joint and passively adducted and abducted hip joint, then measured passive ROM of those joints. We decided which side was relatively dominant by comparing between left and right ROM. We analyzed the differences of tensions of shoulder and hip joints by the handedness, and the relationships between the tensions of left and right shoulder joints, between the tensions of left and right hip joints and between the tensions of shoulder joints and hip joints. Results : The right hip adduction and the left hip abduction were relatively significantly limited at right-handed persons. There was statistically significant relationship between the tensions of left and right shoulder joints, and between the tensions of left and right hip joints. There was no significant relationship between the tensions of shoulder and hip joint. Conclusions : Right-handed has the tension patterns especially at hip joints. There is also tension patterns between the homologous joints.
