Abstract
A growing body of data supports a view that skeletal muscle's response after mechanical loading does not always result in the classically reported "injury response." Furthermore, current evidence supports a model of muscle adaptation and/or maladaptation, distinct from overt injury, in which myofiber degeneration and inflammation do not contribute as significantly as once reported even in aged populations.
