Nieman DC: Immune response to heavy exertion, J Appl Physiol 82:1385–1394, 1997. Ch a p t er Human Brain Plasticity, Sports, and Sports Injuries This chapter is a brief review of some basic brainbody interactions and neural processes that occur during physical exercise and training. Understanding this interaction is essential for designing training programs, preventing potential sports injuries, and assisting rehabilitation by using integrative medical procedures. The aim of this review is to understand why dry needling is used and how it can benefit athletes by reducing physiologic stress during the different phases of their sports activities.

This pure psychologic stress is a top-down type. In daily life these two patterns of stress are not always distinguishable, and this is also true in sports and exercise. Exercise Responses Substantial physiologic adjustments occur during exercise in the nervous, cardiovascular, and endocrine systems in order to provide maximal oxygen and fuel to the exercising muscles and to remove metabolic toxins from them. These adjustments consist of two phases: the preparatory phase and the active phase. Preparatory Phase In competitive sports, thoughts about the future are often a source of psychologic stress.

As Figure 4-1 shows, the fulcrum of the lever system sustains the physical force equal to the sum of muscle force and loading force. For example, in Figure 4-4, if the upper body weighs W = 50 kg (110 lb), the lower back muscles have to exert F = 150 kg (330 lb) to support the standing in normal posture, and the reaction force Rj to support the normal posture in the lumbar joint Rj = 50 kg + 150 kg = 200 kg (440 lb). If low back pain occurs, the lower back muscles have to use much more force to support the posture, and the reaction force inside the lumbar joint is much higher.
