Background: Human nose differs in its anatomy and morphology among different racial and ethnic groups. Objective: The objective of this study was to establish and compare the nasal parameters of male and female subjects in a student population. Materials and Methods: Five hundred (500) subjects were selected at random comprising 250 males and 250 females. The ages of the subject ranged from 18 years to 25 year. Nasal heights, breadths, and pronasal distances were measured using a Mitutoyo manual...

Introduction: Very little attention has been paid to muscle architecture in the Sub-Saharan African environment, and the rectus abdominis muscle, being a stabilising agent in the trunk, should not be left out. Considering the incidence of trunk musculoskeletal discomfort, it is necessary to assess the rectus abdominis muscle. Aim of the research: To assess the thickness of the rectus abdominis muscle in an apparently healthy adult population using ultrasound and to evaluate its possible relation...

Background: Growth assessment is useful in monitoring children's growth. It often reveals their physical characteristics, health and nutritional status, and infers their biological well-being. The present study was conducted to evaluate the physical growth status of schoolchildren and adolescents in Ebonyi State, Southeast Nigeria. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study design was followed, which involved a random sampling of 1,620 subjects (849 males and 771 females) selected from schoo...

Introduction: Very little attention has been paid to the thickness of the diaphragm (DT) as an important aspect of architecture of the respiratory muscle and the possible effect of occupation-related unregulated physical activity on it. Aim of the research: This study aimed at assessing the effect of occupation-based physical activity on the thickness of the thoracic diaphragm. Material and methods: Eighty (80) males between the ages of 18 and 30 years were recruited for the study and divided in...

Background: The effect of prolonged occupation-related physical activity can induce stress and strain on the plantar heel pad. These strains can lead to the thickening of the human heel pad.Methods: The effect of occupation-related physical activity on the thickness of the Heel pad (HPT) was assessed among four classes of occupation- Labourers/farmers, Dancers, Athletes and an inactive class (control/normal group) in a southeast Nigerian population.Results: Results show that the inactive class h...

Objective: The thickness of the triceps surae muscle complex was assessed by ultrasound in a young adult Nigerian population. Its relationship with some anthropometric variables and sexual dimorphism was also assessed. Subjects and Methods: Sixty young adults (30 males and 30 females) between the ages of 19 and 30 years were recruited for the study. Anthropometric protocols for height, weight, foot length (FL) lower leg length (LLL) and mid calf circumference (MCC) were observed. Results: Result...

ABSTRACT Background: The degree of physical activity induces strain and stress on the plantar fascia of the foot and the effect of these forces may lead to thickening of the plantar fascia. Methods: The effect of occupation-related physical activity on the thickness of the plantar aponeurosis (PAT) was assessed among four classes of occupation- Labourers/farmers, Dancers, Athletes and an inactive class (control/normal group). Results: Results show that the inactive (control group) had the least ...
