Calf muscle injuries are among the most common for runners over 40, particularly men. This type of soft tissue injury can heal, but it is going to take time. For younger runners, recovering from a calf muscle injury usually takes about six to eight weeks.
Frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis, is a common cause of shoulder pain and immobility. New findings point to specific genes associated with an increased risk of this condition, reports the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery.
Interrupting prolonged sitting with periodic "activity snacks" may help maintain muscle mass and quality, according to researchers at the University of Toronto in Canada.
Exercise is one of the first strategies used to treat obesity-related health problems like type 2 diabetes and other cardiovascular disease, but scientists don't understand exactly how it works to improve metabolic health.
What are muscle knots? An exercise physiologist explains what those tight little lumps are and how to get rid of them
When your muscle gets damaged—even just a little—it can cause inflammation in the bands of muscle and the fascial layer above. And that clump of inflamed tissue is a myofascial trigger point. The little lumps are typically tender to the touch and can limit your range of motion or lead to pain during various movements.
If you spend 30 minutes less on social media every day and engage in physical activity instead, you do a lot to improve your mental health. This is shown in a study conducted by a team from the Mental Health Research and Treatment Center at Ruhr-Universität Bochum
While there are well-known benefits of regular physical exercise on physical, mental and cognitive health for people of any age, there was no conclusive evidence confirming whether regular physical exercise could improve people's intelligence to date.
The fourth-year biomedical engineering undergraduate student has conducted research to better understand the biomechanics of returning to sport after an ACL injury, including better ways to measure landing mechanics to improve clinical recommendations for injured athletes.
Exercise, which can take the form of simple physical activity such as walking, is good for people with joint pain. Joints were made to move and if we don't move them they'll get stiff, creaky, even more painful and our muscles, which are extremely important for protecting our joints against harmful movements, will weaken—exposing them to even greater harm.
