Electrical Stimulation That Mimics Lifting Weights May Benefit DMD

Electrical muscle stimulation that mimics resistance training exercises improves muscle structure, function, and survival rates in a Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) zebrafish model, a new study reveals. “The longstanding consensus in the muscular dystrophy field is that minimizing resistance training preserves muscle strength and mass because it lowers the…
