Unusual and exhaustive physical exercise can lead to muscle lesions depending on the type of contraction, intensity, duration, age, and level of conditioning. Different therapies have been proposed to prevent or reduce exercise-induced muscle damage. In this study, we investigate the effects of low-level laser therapy on skeletal muscle strain in an experimental model in rats.

Statins therapy is effective in the prevention of cardiovascular events. However, its use is associated with skeletal muscle myopathy, which may be severe enough to discontinue statin therapy, thus ex...
Long-term physical inactivity can cause the atrophy of skeletal muscle. The aim of this study is to explore the underlying mechanisms of physical inactivity-induced atrophy of skeletal muscle.
Sarcopenia, the age-related loss of skeletal muscle, is a side effect of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for prostate cancer patients. Resident stem cells of skeletal muscle, satellite cells (SCs),...
This study aims to clarify the relation between axonal deformation and the onset of axonal injury. Firstly, to examine the influence of strain rate on the threshold for axonal injury, cultured neurons...
Obesity is a chronic and complex medical condition characterized by excessive fat accumulation and its complications include metabolic syndrome, diabetes and chronic inflammation. The aim of this stud...
Patients with peripheral arterial disease often have walking impairment due to insufficient oxygen supply to lower extremity skeletal muscle. In an aging rat model, we have previously show...
The stretching is performed within sports to improve muscle performance and prevent muscle injury. However, recent studies are contradictory with common practice. Then raised the possibili...
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of treadmill training on inflammation in the skeletal muscle and adipose tissue, insulin action in the skeletal muscle, and whole body g...
In this study the investigators utilized protein supplementation over an 8-day period following eccentric exercise-induced muscle damage in order to test the initial hypotheses : i) protei...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the acute effects of two different types of muscle stretching (static and dynamic) on muscle-tendon unit of gastrocnemius muscle by ultrasound a...
An outbred strain of rats developed in 1915 by crossing several Wistar Institute white females with a wild gray male. Inbred strains have been derived from this original outbred strain, including Long-Evans cinnamon rats (RATS, INBRED LEC) and Otsuka-Long-Evans-Tokushima Fatty rats (RATS, INBRED OLETF), which are models for Wilson's disease and non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, respectively.
A diminution of the skeletal muscle tone marked by a diminished resistance to passive stretching.
A mutant strain of Rattus norvegicus without a thymus and with depressed or absent T-cell function. This strain of rats may have a small amount of hair at times, but then lose it.
A cinnamon-colored strain of Long-Evans rats which carries a mutation causing fulminant hepatitis and jaundice, with an associated gross accumulation of copper in the liver. This strain is a model for Wilson's Disease (see HEPATOLENTICULAR DEGENERATION).
Exercises that stretch the muscle fibers with the aim to increase muscle-tendon FLEXIBILITY, improve RANGE OF MOTION or musculoskeletal function, and prevent injuries. There are various types of stretching techniques including active, passive (relaxed), static, dynamic (gentle), ballistic (forced), isometric, and others.
