Recovery from chronic strain injury (50 strains daily, five times weekly for 6 weeks to hyperactive soleus muscles) was followed for 3 months in female rats after cessation of chronic hyperactivity induced by pretreatment of the plantar flexor muscles with tetanus toxin. After 6 weeks of repeated strains, muscle mass decreased by 62%, myofiber areas were reduced by 87%, and noncontractile tissue expanded dramatically by 222%. Collagen content increased by almost ninefold (control 40 +/- 3… CONTINUE READING
