Foam rolling has emerged as a popular means of alleviating delayed onset muscle soreness and stiff muscles. You're likely to find foam rollers in any gym, or you may have one yourself, and many people swear by using them before and after exercise. But what does the science say?
Quadricep muscle contracts differently after acl reconstruction, may contribute to lingering weakness
After an anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery, it's common to experience quadriceps weakness, which was thought to be caused primarily by muscle atrophy, or shrinkage. But researchers at the University of Michigan School of Kinesiology have found an additional cause, which could help clinicians design more effective rehabilitation programs.
Results showed use of blood flow restriction therapy in the early postoperative period after ACL reconstruction may improve short-term pain scores and quadriceps strength within the first 3 months after surgery.
