Muscles - you use them every time you climb stairs, lift a suitcase, hug a loved one, play sports, or do an infinite number of other activities. And yet - as long as our muscles are healthy and free of pain - we take this “miraculous machinery” for granted. Muscle, however, can be affected by all the usual categories of disease, including inherited and developmental conditions (e.g., anomalous muscles), trauma (e.g. strain, contusion), ischemia and necrosis (e.g., compartment syndrome, myonecrosis), inflammation (e.g., infection, autoimmune), neurological derangements (e.g., denervation), neoplasms and various other disorders (e.g., iatrogenic) [1-3].
