This work describes the use of ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) to follow up the degeneration-regeneration process after a laceration injury induced in the lateral gastrocnemius (LG) and soleus (SOL)(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the chronic effects of a static stretching program on the muscle architecture of biceps femoris (BF) and vastus lateralis (VL) muscles in ultrasound (US) images. DESIGN(More)
PURPOSE To track the regeneration process of lateral gastrocnemius due to a muscle laceration in rats, and to treatment with plateletrich plasma (PRP). METHODS Ultrasound (40 MHz) images were used(More)
This pilot study aimed to test the potential use of imaging techniques, ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) and magnetic resonance (MRI), to quantify muscle architecture parameters and evaluate, in vivo,(More)
BACKGROUND A chronic regimen of flexibility training can increase range of motion, with the increase mechanisms believed to be a change in the muscle material properties or in the neural components(More)
