A single bout of exercise with a flexible pole induces significant cardiac autonomic responses in healthy men
(Clinics, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
OBJECTIVES: Flexible poles can provide rapid eccentric and concentric muscle contractions. Muscle vibration is associated with a "tonic vibration reflex" that is stimulated by a sequence of rapid muscle stretching, activation ...
Increasing Strength-to-Weight Ratio Changes Gait Timing but not Walking Speed in Older Adults
(Medicine And Science In Sports And Exercise, 2014-05-01) [Resumo]
Facial pain associated with fibromyalgia can be marked by abnormal neuromuscular control: A cross-sectional study
(Physical Therapy, 2013-08-01) [Artigo]
Background. Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) development in fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is not yet fully understood, but altered neuromuscular control in FMS may play a role in triggering TMD. Objective. The purpose of ...
Effect of 808 nm low-level laser therapy in exercise-induced skeletal muscle fatigue in elderly women
(Lasers in Medical Science, 2013-09-01) [Artigo]
Aging process involves several structural changes in muscle tissue which lead to decrease in musculoskeletal function. One of the most common physiological modifications is the increase in fatigability in elderly people, ...
Risk factors that may signify a propensity to the use of drugs in students at a public university
(Revista Brasileira de Crescimento e Desenvolvimento Humano, 2013) [Artigo]
Introduction: We sought to evaluate the risk factors that may increase the propensity to use licit and illicit drugs among students at a public university. Methods: The project involved students (n = 268) enrolled in the ...
Cardiac autonomic regulation during exposure to auditory stimulation with classical baroque or heavy metal music of different intensities
(Archives of the Turkish Society of Cardiology, 2014) [Artigo]
Objectives: The effects of chronic music auditory stimulation on the cardiovascular system have been investigated in the literature. However, data regarding the acute effects of different styles of music on cardiac autonomic ...
Exercise reduces angiotensin II responses in rat femoral veins
(Peptides, 2013) [Artigo]
The control of blood flow during exercise involves different mechanisms, one of which is the activation of the renin-angiotensin system, which contributes to exercise-induced blood flow redistribution. Moreover, although ...
Fractal correlation property of heart rate variability in response to the postural change maneuver in healthy women
(International Archives of Medicine, 2014) [Artigo]
Background: We evaluated the effects of the PCM on the fractal analysis of the HRV in healthy women Method: We evaluated healthy women between 18 and 30 years old. HRV was analyzed in the time (SDNN, RMSSD, NN50 and pNN50) ...
Exercise increases the angiotensin II effects in isolated portal vein of trained rats
(Peptides, 2010) [Artigo]
Training in rats adapts the portal vein to respond vigorously to sympathetic stimuli even when the animal is re-exposed to exercise. Moreover, changes in the exercise-induced effects of angiotensin II, a potent venoconstrictor ...
Comparação da qualidade de vida relacionada à saúde entre mulheres na pós-menopausa praticantes de atividade física com e sem osteoporose
(Revista Brasileira de Reumatologia, 2007-12-01) [Artigo]
Objective: to investigate the quality of life among physically active post-menopausal women with and without a diagnosis of osteoporosis. Methods: a cross-sectional descriptive study was carried out through interview. All ...
