Strenght sport

BackgroundThe anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture accounting for about 50% of all knee ligament injuries. The rehabilitation program requires a long time to rebuild muscle strength and to reestablish joint mobility and neuromuscular control. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the muscle strength recovery in athletes with ACL reconstruction. MethodsWe enrolled soccer atlethes, with isolated anterior cruciate ligament rupture treated with bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft artroscopic reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this paper was to analyze how the rest between interval repetitions in intra-set training (at maximal isometric loads) could affect the ability to repeat maximal contractions in subjects with different levels of performance and different experience in strength development work. METHODS: Twenty subjects were divided randomly into two different groups depending on their sport characteristics: ten subjects were trained in strength development work (Group Strenght--23...

BACKGROUND: The best treatment for acute rupture of the Achilles tendon is still under debate. Our purpose was to evaluate surgical triple-bundle technique in selected patients with full subcutaneous rupture of Achilles tendon. METHODS: Sixty-six consecutive patients (56 men, 10 women; age range 20-61 years) with full unilateral rupture of the Achilles tendon were surgically treated by the triple-bundle technique. Seventy-four percent of the lesions occurred during sport activity...

UNLABELLED: Movement therapy during the rehabilitation of breast cancer has become more important over the last years. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In a randomized controlled study the feasibility of gentle strenght training was compared to conventional gymnastic exercises during rehabilitation of breast cancer patients. The aim oft this study was to identify alternative sports intervention in the treatment of breast cancer patients. The intervention group (IG) was lifting standardized weights weekly (50 % of h1RM), while the control group (CG) received conventional gymnastic exercises...

Pectoralis major rupture is a very uncommon injury first time described by Patissier in 1822. Tears are classified on the type (partial and complete) or on the site (tendinous, myotendinous junction, intramuscular). Ruptures are reported in young high-performance athletes as results of eccentric contractions of the musculotendinous unit. The most probable mechanism in elderly patients is a brisk tearing movement applied to stiff atrophic muscle. Injuries generally involve the sternal portion; the localization to the clavicular portion is rare and can be misdiagnosed as muscle sprain...
