OBJECTIVES: To evaluate, with a high spatial resolution, the blood flow variations in human skeletal muscle during neuromuscular electric stimulation (NMES) and hence to gain better understanding of the mechanisms of muscle spatial recruitment during NMES. DESIGN: One thigh was submitted to 3 stimulation bouts of different durations (S1=4min, S2=8min, S3=12min) with a workload corresponding to 10% of quadriceps maximal isometric voluntary torque. SETTING: A cyclotron research center at a Belgian university. PARTICIPANTS: Ten healthy male volunteers. INTERVENTIONS: Not applicable. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Participants were studied with positron emission tomography and H(2)(15)O. Tissue blood flow was evaluated during the last 4 minutes of each stimulation bout in multiple regions of interest (ROIs) selected in the transverse section of the stimulated thigh. RESULTS: Mean tissue blood flow was significantly lower during S1 (5.9+/-1.3mL. min(-1). 100g(-1)) than during S2 (10.6+/-3.4mL. min(-1). 100g(-1)) and S3 (11.6+/-3.7mL. min(-1). 100g(-1)) (P<.05). For each ROI, an arbitrary tissue blood flow activation level of 5mLmin(-1)100g(-1) was fixed. The mean percentage of activated ROIs reached 42.4%, 62.7%, and 63.6% during S1, S2, and S3, respectively. Between S1 and S3, the newly recruited ROIs were preferentially located far from the electrode. CONCLUSION: During NMES, new muscular regions situated far from the stimulation site are recruited. These recruitment mechanisms are particular and contrast with the recruitment of motor units seen during voluntary contraction. [less ▲]

Objectifs. Évaluer la fonction musculaire d’un groupe de patientes fibromyalgiques et la comparer à celle d’une population féminine de référence. Méthodes. Seize patientes fibromyalgiques et 87 sujets sains féminins sédentaires ou sportifs de loisir ont exécuté un protocole expérimental composé de quatre épreuves. La première évaluait le moment de force isocinétique concentrique maximum des muscles extenseurs et fléchisseurs du genou dominant. Un dynamomètre de Colin autorisait une mesure de la force manuelle isométrique. La résistance musculaire à la fatigue s’appréciait lors d’une épreuve isocinétique de flexion–extension des genoux : le sujet enchaînait 30 contractions concentriques d’intensité maximale à la vitesse angulaire de 180 °/s. La dernière épreuve évaluait l’endurance musculaire statique à l’aide de tests exigeant le maintien d’une position donnée. Résultats. Toutes les variables musculaires apparaissaient réduites chez les sujets fibromyalgiques. Ce déficit, déjà manifeste pour les efforts anaérobiques, s’accentuait lors des efforts en aérobie. Le déficit moyen correspondait à 39 % (p < 0,001) pour la force musculaire, 40 % (p < 0,0001) pour la résistance musculaire à la fatigue et 81 % (p < 0,0001) pour l’endurance musculaire statique. Les perceptions nociceptives au cours de l’effort, évaluées à l’aide d’une échelle visuelle analogique, étaient supérieures chez les patientes fibromyalgiques. Conclusion. L’exploration combinée des trois filières énergétiques confirme l’altération générale de la fonction musculaire du sujet fibromyalgique. Cette étude suggère cependant une perturbation préférentielle des composantes oxydatives. [less ▲]

Objectives. To compare muscle performance in women with fibromyalgia and in healthy women. Patients and methods. Sixteen women with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) and 85 healthy women who were physically inactive or engaged in recreational sports underwent measurements of four parameters: maximal concentric isokinetic muscle strength of the knee extensors and flexors in the dominant limb, isometric grip strength on a Colin dynamometer, muscle fatigue resistance during 30 maximal concentric isokinetic contractions of the dominant knee flexors and extensors at 180° angular velocity, and static endurance during posture maintenance. Results. All muscle variables were decreased in the FMS patients as compared to the controls.The decreases were more marked during aerobic than during anaerobic exercise.Mean decreases were 39% (P<0.001) for muscle strength, 40% (P<0.0001) for fatigue resistance, and 81% (P<0.0001) for static endurance. Pain during exercise as evaluated using a visual analog scale was more marked in the FMS patients. Conclusion. This study of the three pathways supplying energy to muscle confirms that muscle function is globally impaired in FMS patients.The results suggest that the impairment predominates on aerobic processes.

We determined the frequency of strength disorders in 26 athletes with a history of hamstring muscle injury and recurrent strains and discomfort. We also assessed the effectiveness of rehabilitation to correct muscle performance. After concentric and eccentric isokinetic assessment, 18 athletes were found to have strength deficits, as determined by statistically selected cutoffs of peak torque, bilateral differences, and the flexors/quadriceps ratio. The discriminating character of the eccentric trial was demonstrated, combining a preferential eccentric peak torque deficit and a significant reduction of the mixed eccentric flexors/concentric quadriceps ratio. The athletes with muscle imbalances followed a rehabilitation program individually adapted from their strength profile. Treatment length was from 10 to 30 sessions and resulted in isokinetic parameter normalization in 17 of 18 subjects. Isokinetically corrected subjects were observed for 12 months after return to athletics. None sustained a clinically diagnosed hamstring muscle reinjury. Subjective intensity of pain and discomfort were significantly reduced, and they all returned to their prior level of competition. These results demonstrate that persistent muscle strength abnormalities may give rise to recurrent hamstring injuries and discomfort. An individualized rehabilitation program emphasizing eccentric training based on specific deficits contributes to a decrease in symptoms on return to sports. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: To realize a clarification about fibromyalgia, attempting to consider diagnostic criteria, prevalence, pathophysiology and therapeutic approach. METHOD: A systematic literature search was conducted to select articles about fibromyalgia and connected diseases. The database are Premedline, Medline and Medlineplus. RESULTS: Fifty-eight articles about fibromyalgia and twelve articles about connected diseases were selected to realize this review of literature. DISCUSSION: Fibromyalgia constitutes a syndrome characterized by widespread musculo-skeletal pain, present above the waist and below the waist and in the axial skeleton. Widespread pain must have been present for at least three months. "Spasmophilie", chronic fatigue syndrome and myofascial syndrome represent diseases connected with fibromyalgia: differential diagnosis must be established. Researches related to fibromyalgia suggest a reduction of muscular performances associated with histological and biochemical anomalies. Patients are characterized by shorter and nonrestorative sleep. Psychological, neuroendocrine and central alterations appear often associated with fibromyalgia. The reduction of pressure tolerance and pain thresholds may be linked to the alterations of neuroendocrine substances. Literature recommend a multidisciplinary therapeutic approach in management of fibromyalgia. CONCLUSION: The pathophysiologic mechanisms in fibromyalgia appear multiple and interdependent. With the aim to optimizing treatment, investigations are necessary to determine biochemical repercussions of various therapeutic approaches. [less ▲]

The assessment of human muscle strength is of considerable value in various pathological states with modifications of the performance level. The original concept of isokinetic dynamometry provides a precise and reliable quantification of strength. Identification of underlying deficits in bilateral and reciprocal muscle group relationships plays a great role in the treatment of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and muscle injuries. The value of this type of assessment for prevention in uninjured subjects practicing sports at risk is suggested. Rehabilitative use of isokinetic includes muscle strengthening and tendinitis treatment by means of eccentric exercises. [less ▲]
