The Conversation

As many of you might’ve experienced, the inevitable muscle soreness that comes after a break can be a tough barrier to overcome.

Here’s what causes this muscle soreness, and how best to manage it.

 

What is muscle soreness and why does it occur?

Some muscle soreness after a workout is normal. But it can be debilitating and deter you from further exercise. The scientific term used to describe these aches is delayed onset muscle soreness, or DOMS, which results from mechanical disruption of the muscle fibres, often called “microtears”.

This damage causes swelling and inflammation in the muscle fibres, and the release of substances that sensitise the nerves within the muscle, producing pain when the muscle contracts or is stretched.

This pain usually peaks 24-72 hours after exercise. The

Exercise Helps Most Kiwis Suffering From Cancer


New
research has established why people who exercise when
suffering from cancer generally have better outcomes,
ExerciseNZ chief executive Richard Beddie says.

Cancer
sufferers who exercise regularly have a generally better
prognosis than inactive patients, but science hasn’t
understood why exercise helps slow down cancer
growth.

The study from the Karolinska Institutet in
Sweden found evidence points to physical activity changing
the metabolism of the immune system, which improves the
attack on cancer cells.

Beddie says ExerciseNZ is
working with the Exercise As Medicine NZ which supports
people with health conditions to use exercise so they may
live longer and have better lives.

Exercise as

Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, stroke and long-term
conditions like cancer, cardiac disease, diabetes,
osteoporosis and arthritis.

Pumping Iron: IV Supplement Helps Heart Failure Patients


Heart failure patients who are diagnosed with iron deficiency appear to avoid return trips to the hospital if they are treated with intravenous ferric carboxymaltose to replete iron stores, researchers reported at the virtual 2020 scientific sessions of the American Heart Association.

In the Affirm-AHF trial, patients treated with ferric carboxymaltose had a relative risk reduction of 21% in the primary composite endpoint of hospitalization and cardiovascular death when compared with patients who received placebo (P=0.059), reported Piotr Ponikowski, MD, PhD, of Wroclaw Medical University in Poland.

The result was primarily driven by a reduction in hospitalizations – which achieved statistical significance with a relative risk reduction of 26% (P=0.013). This result was achieved with only one or two injections in 80% of the patients in the ferric carboxymaltose group, Ponikowski said at an AHA press conference.

He said that the COVID-19 epidemic had an impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has tested the patience of many as our lives have been forced together like the wrong piece of a jigsaw puzzle. While routines have been set since the start of the pandemic in March, workers can get a good sense of where their company stands in providing them resources to not only be successful but also happy, which starts with benefit packages.

For employees during the pandemic, companies that provide fitness benefits is the biggest prize of all outside of healthcare, according to a new study (and there’s a good reason why).

Fitness company ClassPass recently conducted a study on wellness trends during the
