The palpitation of the palpitation is a common characteristic of palumboism. Also known as ailmento-palumpism, the disease is usually caused by abnormal activity of the supraspinatus muscles of the lower back, pelvis, ribs, and upper limbs. The term "palumboism" actually refers to the disorder more so in the case of its symptoms, which include a flaccid or swollen limb that is unable to support its own weight. This type of the condition generally affects young men between the ages of fifteen and thirty five years. Although it is more common amongst young men, some women may also suffer from palumboism at a younger age and in lesser degrees. However, most cases are not observed in older people.
In this regard, palumboism is commonly treated with physical therapy, which involves the treatment of soft tissue and deformities caused by the excess length of one particular muscle or group of muscles. This treatment is performed in order to achieve the best results for the patient. Though physical therapy may prove effective in cases where no other treatment has been successful, it does not target the actual cause of the condition, thus causing it to recur over time.
Other treatment procedures are also available to deal with the condition. A variety of non-surgical treatment procedures are available to treat the condition. Non-surgical treatment procedures include massage, acupuncture, hypnosis, cold compression, tai chi, stretching exercises, and ultrasound. These treatment procedures are commonly used in cases where conventional treatment methods have proven ineffective or have otherwise resulted in minimal results. Nevertheless, these types of treatment procedures should only be considered as supplementary therapies to the primary objective of the treatment, which is the reduction of the excess weight of the extremities in patients suffering from palumboism.
