xx Grounding effects on Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness
« Thread started on: Mar 20th, 2012, 03:57am »

In a pilot study published in the Journal of Alternative Medicne (2010 March: 16(3): 265-273) researchers investigated if there are markers that can be used to show if grounding, or earthing, affects delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOM).

The study used 8 men who performed eccentric exercise that would cause DOMs in both legs. All eight participants received electrode patches and patented conductive sheets, however only four of the men were using devices actually grounded to the earth.

Researchers took complete blood counts, enzyme chemistry, blood chemistry, serum and saliva cortisols, as well as magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs) spectroscopy, and pain levels before and then at 24, 48, and 72 hours after the exercise.

Results of the pilot study showed that grounding to the earth alters measures of the immune system, including white blood cell counts, creatine kinase, bilirubin, phosphocreatine/inorganic phosphate ratios, phosphorylcholine, glycerolphosphorylcholine. Grounding also affected the
visual analogue pain scale, and pressure measurements on the right large and superficial calf muscle.

Researchers reported that because grounding did appear to speed recovery of DOMS, a larger, more inclusive study is warranted.
