Cold Water Immersion in the Recovery of Markers of Muscle Damage of 10km Street Runners

2017-03-30 00:08:22 | BioPortfolio


Objective: To analyze the effect of cold water immersion (CWI) on the recovery of clinical, biochemical, functional and neuromuscular markers of muscle damage in 10 km street runners.

Materials and Methods: This is a randomized, blinded trial in which 30 subjects, 10 km street runners, were randomly divided into three groups: control (gC), immersion (gI) and CWI (gCWI). The runners will be evaluated for clinical (subjective perception of exertion), biochemical (serum CK), functional (unipodal triple hop distance and shuttle test time) and neuromuscular variables by means of isokinetic variables (peak torque, total work and fatigue index). Volunteers will perform pre-assessment, immediately post-race and post-intervention, and 24-hour post-intervention. The data will be expressed by mean and standard deviation, analyzed in the statistical package SPSS 20.0. A significance level of 5% and a 95% confidence interval will be considered for all measures.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition of the feet produced by prolonged exposure of the feet to water. Exposure for 48 hours or more to warm water causes tropical immersion foot or warm-water immersion foot common in Vietnam where troops were exposed to prolonged or repeated wading in paddy fields or streams. Trench foot results from prolonged exposure to cold, without actual freezing. It was common in trench warfare during World War I, when soldiers stood, sometimes for hours, in trenches with a few inches of cold water in them. (Andrews' Diseases of the Skin, 8th ed, p27)

Non-fatal immersion or submersion in water. The subject is resuscitable.

The immersion or washing of the body or any of its parts in water or other medium for cleansing or medical treatment. It includes bathing for personal hygiene as well as for medical purposes with the addition of therapeutic agents, such as alkalines, antiseptics, oil, etc.

A cold infusion of tar in water, formerly regarded as a cure-all. (Webster, 3d ed)
