Contrast With Compression Therapy Enhances Muscle Function Recovery and Attenuates Glycogen Disruption After Exercise.

Sports Health 2022 Mar 27:19417381221080172. Epub 2022 Mar 27.

University of Rhode Island, Department of Kinesiology, Kingston, Rhode Island.

Background: Exercise-associated muscle damage (EAMD) temporally impairs muscle function and intramuscular glycogen storage. Contrast with compression (CwC) therapy provides localized EAMD treatment with minimal changes in core/tissue temperature that can impair glycogen resynthesis.

Hypothesis: CwC will enhance the recovery of strength, power, and joint mobility, reduce markers of EAMD, and attenuate the disruption of glycogen storage observed after damaging exercise. Read More

Tart Cherry Supplement Enhances Skeletal Muscle Glutathione Peroxidase Expression and Functional Recovery after Muscle Damage.

Med Sci Sports Exerc 2022 04;54(4):609-621

Sport and Health Sciences, St. Luke's Campus, University of Exeter, Exeter, Devon, UNITED KINGDOM.

Introduction: Montmorency cherry concentrate (MCC) supplementation enhances functional recovery from exercise, potentially due to antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. However, to date, supporting empirical evidence for these mechanistic hypotheses is reliant on indirect blood biomarkers. This study is the first to investigate functional recovery from exercise alongside molecular changes within the exercised muscle after MCC supplementation. Read More

Fatigue-related Feedback from Calf Muscles Impairs Knee Extensor Voluntary Activation.

Med Sci Sports Exerc 2020 10;52(10):2136-2144

School of Health Sciences, Western Sydney University, Campbelltown, NSW, AUSTRALIA.

Introduction: Fatigue-related group III/IV muscle afferent firing from agonist, antagonist or distal muscles impairs the ability to drive the elbow flexors maximally, that is, reduces voluntary activation. In the lower limb, the effect of feedback from distal muscles on the proximal knee extensors is unknown. Here, we test whether maintained group III/IV afferent feedback from the plantarflexor muscles reduces voluntary activation of the knee extensors. Read More

Does Low-Level Laser Therapy Decrease Muscle-Damaging Mediators After Performance in Soccer Athletes Versus Sham Laser Treatment? A Critically Appraised Topic.

J Sport Rehabil 2020 11 5;29(8):1210-1213. Epub 2020 May 5.

Clinical Scenario: Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a controversial topic for its use in athletic recovery, mainly due to inconsistency in research regarding the application of LLLT. Articles on LLLT have assessed its effectiveness in untrained humans through pain scales, functional scales, and blood draws, and it has been found capable in nonathletic rehabilitative use. The controversy lies with LLLT in the recovering athlete. Read More

Impact of a modified progressive Copenhagen adduction exercise programme on hip adduction strength and postexercise muscle soreness in professional footballers.

BMJ Open Sport Exerc Med 2019 15;5(1):e000570. Epub 2019 Oct 15.

School of Sport and Exercise Sciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.

Background: Reduced hip adduction strength has been identified as a key predisposing factor in developing hip and groin injuries. The Copenhagen adduction programme has been shown to increase hip adduction strength in semiprofessional footballers but can cause muscle soreness.

Influence of fascicle strain and corticospinal excitability during eccentric contractions on force loss.

Exp Physiol 2019 10 22;104(10):1532-1543. Epub 2019 Aug 22.

Nantes Université, Movement-Interactions-Performance, MIP, EA 4334, F-44000, Nantes, France.

New Findings: What is the central question of this study? Do neural and/or mechanical factors determine the extent of muscle damage induced by eccentric contractions? What is the main finding and its importance? The extent of muscle damage induced by eccentric contractions is related to both mechanical strain and corticospinal excitability measured at long muscle lengths during eccentric contractions.

Abstract: In this study, we investigated whether the mechanical and neural characteristics of maximal voluntary eccentric contractions would determine the extent of change in postexercise maximal voluntary isometric contraction (MVC) torque and muscle soreness. Eleven men performed 10 sets of 15 isokinetic (45 deg s ) maximal voluntary eccentric knee extensions. Read More
