  1. Is Plantar Flexion affecting a golfer's downswing efficiency? blogfreely.net/lermagazine/is-plantar-flexion-affecting-a-golfers-downswing-efficiency What is the importance of plantar flexor muscles for your health? This question has been a constant concern for fitness professionals for many decades. Fitness and conditioning have received more attention in recent years. There has been a lot of research on the role that the human body plays in its ability to withstand stress. The decline in participation in sport has been attributed to the aging process as well as a more sedentary lifestyle. The ability to exercise is also affected by aging. Many seniors have taken to walking, but those who exercise may find the benefits of simple walks in contrast to the physical limitations of regular activity. To explore the role of plantar flexor muscles in functional significance, measured the relationship between force changes during quiet stand at rest with post-intervention random motion performance and plantar flexor muscles, in both elderly and young adults. The elderly showed a tendency to have shorter standing times and less time reaching the head than young adults. Although the cause of the changes could not be determined, the researchers noted significant associations between standing duration and motor nervous system (MNS), responses. The complications that can be found in middle age and older adults It was discovered that middle-aged and elderly adults had the same patterns of muscle activation. The elderly showed a longer time taking to reach the head during the walking simulation. Surprisingly there was no difference between the time spent in forefoot and mid foot flexion, nor in random walking speed or acceleration. Researchers attributed this observation to the fact, that even though plantar flexor muscle are included in the muscle activation patterns, the location of muscle spurs relative the heel bone, fascia, and the heel bone was different in older adults. This resulted in the need to provide more external resistance during walking simulations. 1/2

  2. The subjects were able to simulate a golf swing while seated. The subjects were required to perform an isometric contraction in the plantar flexor muscles. This test was designed to examine the effects of post-stroke muscle activity on golf swing sequencing and initiation. Dr. Kaczyliak found that post-stroke muscle activation may have an impact on golf swing mechanics. This could be due to the increased use by the lower leg as well as the possibility of more pronation or flattening the femoral condyles in the downswing. There was a positive correlation between post-stroke activation, increased swing initiation, but there was not a significant relationship between post stroke muscle strength and greater distance or accuracy in the golf shots. What do the expert studies say? These studies support the conclusion that there is no relationship between muscle activity in the pre-stroke and after-stroke periods, and whether or not golfers experience an improvement or decrease in their short game or overall performance. The dynamic gait rehabilitation intervention showed strong evidence that one-dimensional vision of feet in the pre-stroke period can cause an overestimation or misinterpretation of one- dimensional kinematics. The opposite picture of kinematics will be displayed in the post- stroke phase, where the golfer should perform a backswing with the dominant leg. A dynamic new gait training intervention might be beneficial for those who wish to improve their swing timing and accuracy. These researchers concluded that it doesn't affect kinematics in the pre-stroke or post- stroke gait cycles. According to their data, individuals should execute a backswing with the dominant leg when approaching and executing the downswing. They also found that this approach can cause an overestimation in one-dimensional kinematics while swinging. A dynamic new gait training intervention is a good option for those who want to improve their swing timing and accuracy. They will be able to improve their biomechanics as well as generate forward propulsion, which should help them drive more accurately.
