NIGG, B.M. and J.M. WAKELING. Impact forces and muscle tuning: a new paradigm. Exerc. Sport Sci. Rev., Vol. 29, No. 1, pp 37-41, 2001. We propose that repetitive impact forces during physical activities are not important from an injury perspective but are the reason for changes in myoelectric activity (muscle tuning) to minimize soft tissue vibrations. Changes in myoelectric activity (intensity, frequency, timing), comfort, and performance provide supporting evidence for this new paradigm.
