AIM Although comparison between multi and single joint exercises has been conducted, there is insufficient evidence that these exercises could lead to different muscle activations. The aim of this study was to compare deltoid muscle activation during multi and single joint exercises. METHODS Twelve male participants (23.4±1.6 years) with at least one year(More)
The aim of this investigation was to evaluate the effects of local cryotherapy on the recovery from symptoms of exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) on biceps brachii. Nineteen untrained women performed an eccentric protocol of damage induction (2 sets of 10 repetitions) in both arms after the baseline data collection. The cryotherapy was applied for 20(More)
It has been proposed that warm-up activities including static stretching may have detrimental effects on power performance. While it is well established in the literature that more than 30 s of stretching before exercise induces deficit in force and power production, there are still controversial findings regarding 30 s or less when additional(More)
BACKGROUND Several factors are associated with the presence of chronic low back pain; one of them is the flexibility of the hamstring muscles that influences the posture of the pelvic spine. OBJECTIVE Investigate the influence of two different time periods of passive static stretching on the flexibility of the hamstring. METHODS Forty-six physiotherapy(More)
The aim of the current study was to investigate the influence of static stretching on hamstring flexibility in healthy young adults by means of systematic review and meta-analysis. The search strategy included MEDLINE, PEDro, Cochrane CENTRAL, EMBASE, LILACS, and manual search from inception to June 2015. Randomized and controlled clinical trials studies(More)
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effects of therapeutic ultrasound (TUS) on pain, muscle strength, range of motion (ROM), muscle edema, and creatine kinase level (CK) in individuals with exercise-induced muscle damage. The systematic review with meta-analysis was conducted. The search included the bases Cochrane CENTRAL, EMBASE, MEDLINE (via(More)
A case of postoperative left chylothorax in a 43-year-old black woman with hairy cell leukemia is reported. First submitted to pleural drainage, she was successfully treated with a combination of chemotherapy and elemental enteral diet enriched with medium-chain triglycerides.

The accident was reported as having occurred in the suburbs of Manaus. The patient was given neostigmine preceded by atropine, calcium gluconate,(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze the effects of pulsed ultrasound on muscle thickness (MT) and echo intensity (EI) after strenuous exercise. Forty healthy untrained male were randomized in either experimental group (n = 20) or placebo group (n = 20). Muscle thickness and EI of the dominant elbow flexors were collected at baseline (PRE), immediately post(More)
