Investigating factors associated with muscle strains highlight the multifactorial origin of the injury and the difficulty of identifying isolated or combined factors that caused the injury. Among the numerous causes reported in the literature, only a few have been scientifically associated with injury occurrence, while others have been empirically suggested. Contradictions in articles dealing with muscle strength and imbalance are frequent, and are probably the result of differences in methodology and criteria for patient inclusion. Imbalance in muscle strength commonly refers to abnormal bilateral asymmetry (between homologous groups) and a disruption of the agonist-antagonist ratio. Some authors who focus on a history of hamstring or adductor strains have demonstrated the frequent abnormality of muscle strength and balance by means of isokinetic assessment. Mixed ratios, combining the eccentric performance of “decelerating” muscles (such as the hamstrings) and the concentric performance of “mobiliser” muscles (such as the quadriceps) are suggested and seem relevant. An increased emphasis on eccentric strengthening exercises, particularly for the hamstrings, and ratio correction on the basis of statistically selected cut-offs, significantly reduces the recurrence rate of the injury and lingering complaints upon return-to-sport. Similarly, isokinetic interventions, as a preseason screening tool in sports where there is a high rate of muscle strain injuries, could detect imbalances early and thus promote a preventive strategy.

A history of muscle injury represents a predominant risk factor for future insult in that muscle group. The high frequency of re-injury and persistent complaints after a hamstring strain comprise major difficulties for the athlete on return to athletic activities. Some of the risk factors associated with the possible recurrence of the injury are, in all probability, already implicated in the initial injury. One can distinguish between those events peculiar to the sport activity modalities (extrinsic factors) and other contributing factors based on the athletes individual features (intrinsic factors). For both categories, the persistence of mistakes or abnormalities in action represent an irrefutable component contributing to the re-injury cycle. Additional factors leading to chronicity can come from the first injury per se through modifications in the muscle tissue and possible adaptive changes in biomechanics and motor patterns of sporting movements. We emphasise the role of questionable approaches to the diagnosis process, drug treatment or rehabilitation design. To date, the risk factors examined in the literature have either been scientifically associated with injury and/or speculated to be associated with injury. In this context, quantifying the real role of each factor remains hypothetical, the most likely ones corresponding to inadequate warm-up, invalid structure and the content of training, muscle tightness and/or weakness, agonist/antagonist imbalances, underestimation of an extensive injury, use of inappropriate drugs, presence of an extensive scar tissue and, above all, incomplete or aggressive rehabilitation. Such a list highlights the unavoidable necessity of developing valid assessment methods, the use of specific measurement tools and more rigorous guidelines in the treatment and rehabilitation. This also implies a scientific understanding as well as specifically qualified medical doctors, physiotherapists and trainers acting in partnership. [less ▲]

Objective. To establish the inter-session reproducibility of isokinetic concentric strength and fatigue profile of the elbow flexors and extensors in sedentary women. Methods. Forty healthy women who were physically inactive or engaged in recreational sports were included in the study. Strength was evaluated at 60 and 180 degrees/s. The fatigue protocol consisted of 30 maximal-intensity elbow flexion and extension at 180 degrees/s. Results. The extensors were stronger than flexors while no dominance effect was apparent. In addition the work output of the extensors during the fatigue protocol was larger than the flexors', the previous being more fatigue resistant. A dominance effect was observed for the extensors in the fatiguing protocol. Reproducibility expressed by the coefficient of variation was less or equal to 11%. Conclusions. This study highlights satisfactory reproducibility of isokinetic strength and fatigue parameters. The values derived may be useful for interpretation of clinical tests or characterization of pathological states in women with similar characteristics. [less ▲]
