Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Altered muscular activation pattern has been associated with musculoskeletal disorders. Some previous studies have demonstrated muscle weakness or tightness in athletes who have sustained hamstring (HAM) injuries. However, no study has clinically investigated the muscular activity pattern in subjects with HAM strain injuries.


Background and Aims: Post exercise proteinuria and increased urinary Gamma-Glutamyl transferase (GGT) levels can be indicative of exercise-induced renal damage. The aim of this investigation was to study the effect of one session of intensive training on renal tubular injury markers and compare their values to those 6 hours after training, for evaluating tubular damage after intensive training.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to quantify changes in postural stability with fatigue of the frontal and sagittal movers of the lower extremities. There were four test sessions, with a randomized order assigned according to the muscles tested and the plane of motion. Subjects were 20 healthy men (age: 22.6 ± ۲٫۴ years, height: 173.7 ± ۳٫۶ cm, weight: 63.3 ± ۷٫۹ kg). During each session, one set of muscle groups was fatigued using isokinetic contractions: ankle plantar/dorsi flexors, ankle evertor/invertors, hip flexor/extensors or hip abductor/adductors.
