  1. 1. Exercise-induced muscle soreness a qualitative and quantitative study of human muscle morphology and function

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Jan Fridén; Umeå universitet.; [1983]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human; exercise; exertion; eccentric contractions; muscles; muscle strength; muscle soreness; fibre types; myofibrils; muscle proteins; histocy to chemistry; ultrastructure; stereology;

    Sammanfattning : Exercise-induced muscle soreness is characterized by stiffness, tenderness and pain during active movements and weakness of the affected musculature the days after unusually or particularly heavy work. The most pronounced subjective symptoms do not arise immediately but rather between a couple of hours to some days after the exercise (a delayed-onset of muscle soreness), the intensity of pain is greatest about 48 hours after the work.

  2. 2. Structure and function of the ankle dorsiflexor muscles in young healthy men and women

    Detta är en avhandling från Anna Maria Holmbäck, Department of Physical Therapy, University Hospital, SE-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Anna Maria Holmbäck; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; revalidation; kinesitherapy; rehabilitation; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ; Physical medicine; reproducibility of results; muscle fibres; magnetic resonance imaging; isokinetic strength; skeletal muscle; Ankle joint;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this thesis was to increase our knowledge of the relationship between structure and function of human skeletal muscle, and about factors affecting strength. The ankle dorsiflexor muscles (DF) were chosen as a representative model of human skeletal muscle, and because these muscles have important roles in gait and maintenance of balance. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Biomechanical and neural aspects of eccentric and concentric muscle performance in stroke subjects Implications for resistance training

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Mattias Hedlund; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fMRI; Isokinetic; Motor imagery; Muscular strength; Resistance training; Neurological rehabilitation;

    Sammanfattning : Muscle weakness is one of the major causes of post-stroke disability. Stroke rehabilitation programs now often incorporate the same type of resistance training that is used for healthy subjects; however, the training effects induced from these training strategies are often limited for stroke patients.

  4. 4. STRENGTH TRAINING AFTER STROKE: EFFECTS ON MUSCLE FUNCTION, GAIT PERFORMANCE AND PERCEIVED PARTICIPATION

    Detta är en avhandling från The Department of Health Sciences, Division of Geriatrics, Lund University and the Department of Rehabilitation, Lund University Hospital, Sweden

    Författare :Ulla-Britt Flansbjer; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; Reproducibility; Neurology; Rehabilitation; sceletal; Muscle; Cerebrovascular Accident; Gait; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this thesis was to evaluate the effects of strength training on muscle function, gait performance and perceived participation in subjects with chronic mild to moderate post-stroke hemiparesis. A main impairment after stroke is reduced muscle strength. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Muscle function and physical activity in pre-pubertal school children

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University

    Författare :Susanna Stenevi Lundgren; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; physical activity; children; exercise; isokinetic muscle strength; vertical jump height; normative; intervention; school transport; DXA; anthropometry; fat mass; lean mass; weight; height; body mass index; girls; boys; pre-pubertal;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Regular participation in physical activity or organized exercise is regarded as one important lifestyle factor that could improve musculoskeletal health, fitness and body composition. For children and adolescents physical activity is important not only in training of the neuromuscular system, coordination and balance, but in a wider perspective, for adopting a lifestyle that possibly reduces the risk of coronary artery disease, obesity, osteoporosis and other contributors to morbidity and mortality in the population.
