review of musculoskeletal injuries noted that courses of progression of injury and secondary inflammatory response in EIMD and in direct muscle trauma (ie, IIMD) were divergent. 16 Furthermore, Merrick 16 noted that EIMD theory may not apply to muscle damage following blunt force trauma. These findings

Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of inflammatory processes in the progression from health to illness. Elevated inflammatory indicators are associated with both physiological and psychological disturbance, including chronic stress ( Libby, 2002 , 2007 ; Miller, Maletic, & Raison

cardiovascular disease (CVD) ( 8 , 16 , 28 ). Although the process of atherosclerosis begins in childhood, it is a silently progressive disease that takes decades to manifest into the overt disease state ( 16 , 28 ). The presence of an inflammatory state is fundamental to all stages of CVD, and it plays a causal

Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory cardiovascular disorder wherein atherosclerotic plaques gradually develop and can rupture, leading to stroke or myocardial infarction ( Ross, 1993 ). The presence and extent of inflammation can be evaluated by measuring biomarkers, such as high-sensitivity C
