OBJECTIVE The purpose was to determine if intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) affects muscle swelling, stiffness, and strength loss resulting from eccentric exercise-induced injury of the elbow flexors. We hypothesized that the compression would decrease swelling and stiffness. DESIGN Repeated measures design with a before-after trial comparison within each day. SETTING Conducted at a university Somatic Dysfunction Laboratory. SUBJECTS Twenty-two college women students were studied… CONTINUE READING
