Research question: Is neurodynamic mobilization better than a foam rolling treatment for treating muscle induced pain? Introduction: Delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) refers to the skeletal muscle pain that is experienced following eccentric exercise [1]. Exercise-induced muscle damage is known to be manifested as increased serum concentrations of creatine kinase (CK), ultrastructural disruption, inflammation and strength deficits [2]. Numerous recovery strategies have been used in an attempt to minimize the symptoms of DOMS [3]. The purpose of this study was to asses the acute effects of a single session of NM treatment and to compare with foam roller application after exercise-induced muscle damage [4]. Materials and methods: Thirty-two healthy subjects (21 males and 11 females, mean age: 22.6±2.2 years) were randomly assigned into neurodynamic group (ND, n = 16) and foam roller group (FR, n = 16). Drop jumps were used to induce muscle damage (5 set×20 rep/2 min. recovery). Maximum voluntary contraction (MIVC), muscle activation in landing jump (MALJ), 0?10 pain scale, pressure pain thresholds, hip and knee ROM and knee bend neural test were measured baseline, post 48 h preview treatment and immediately post treatment. A PhysioPlux® system was used for sEMG data collection. Electrode placement was done following the SENIAMrecommendations.Aband-pass filter was performed to the raw signals and RMS was calculated. A digital algometer (Wagner Pain Test®) was used for PPT and an universal goniometer for ROM measurements. Results: MIVC, MALJ and hip and kneeROMwere decreased and DOMS measured through pain increased in both groups (p < 0.05). After treatment, both groups showed improvements for strength and pain. Pain scale decreased significantly without differences between groups (Pain FR: ?2.38±1.41%; Pain ND: ?2.53±0.92%, p = 0.71). For strength measures, the FR achieved greatest changes than ND (MIVC FR: 10.8±4.65%; MIVC ND: 4.80±4.33%; p = 0.03). Discussion: The data indicated that the both treatments were effectives to improve pain and strength, showing EMG measures greater change with FR treatment.
