The treatment and prevention of muscle damage makes many demands on the time and attention of practioners of sports, occupational and clinical medicine. Despite this, surprisingly little is known about the mechanisms responsible for such damage. This book provides a comprehensive statement of what is currently known about muscle damage and what is yet to be learnt, in terms of both the underlying science and strategies for clinical management. Each chapter gives an account of up-to-date knowledge on a relevant topic. Based upon an issue of the Journal of Basic and Applied Myology, the text has been rewritten, restructured and expanded, so that the content is completely up-to-date.
