Risk for falls has been associated with falls efficacy and postural balance. The objective was to compare the effects on the footprint and the stabilometry of the continuous stretch and the intermittent. Subjects were randomly assigned to an intermittent stretching protocol group or continuous stretch group both of them loading passive plantar flexor stretching. Static footprint and stabilometry were measured before and after both protocols.

This study investigates the influence of a remote, painful stimulus on stretch tolerance. Half of the participants will receive a conditioning painful stimulus following static stretching ...
The effect of stretching on range of motion is believed to rely upon an increased tolerance to stretch. This suggests, that pain modulation has significance in regards to the effect of str...
This study evaluates the effect to a muscle stretching program combined with physical exercise versus a physical exercise program in patients with fibromyalgia.
The purpose of this study is to investigate if stretching the contralateral sacroiliac (SI) joint improves GIRD in baseball players. Additionally, we aimed to compare our SI joint stretchi...
The stretching is performed within sports to improve muscle performance and prevent muscle injury. However, recent studies are contradictory with common practice. Then raised the possibili...
Stretching intensity is an important variable that can be manipulated with flexibility training. However, there is a lack of evidence regarding this variable and its prescription in stretching program...
To evaluate the effect of stretching and progressive resistance exercise on range of motion and muscle strength in children with cerebral palsy.
: The purpose of this study was to compare the acute effects of general warm-up (GWU) and GWU plus dynamic stretching (GWU + DS) on endurance running performance in well-trained male runners. : The en...
Shortness of the pectoralis minor (PM) is a potential mechanism underlying shoulder impingement syndrome. Few studies have examined the effects of kinesiotaping and stretching exercise on PM length or...
The exercise pressor reflex is comprised of two components, namely the muscle mechanoreflex and the muscle metaboreflex. The afferents evoking the two components are either thinly myelinated (i.e., gr...
Exercises that stretch the muscle fibers with the aim to increase muscle-tendon FLEXIBILITY, improve RANGE OF MOTION or musculoskeletal function, and prevent injuries. There are various types of stretching techniques including active, passive (relaxed), static, dynamic (gentle), ballistic (forced), isometric, and others.
Reflex contraction of a muscle in response to stretching, which stimulates muscle proprioceptors.
One of the MARTIAL ARTS and also a form of meditative exercise using methodically slow circular stretching movements and positions of body balance.
A diminution of the skeletal muscle tone marked by a diminished resistance to passive stretching.
Linear dermal scars accompanied by epidermal atrophy that affects skin that is subjected to continuous stretching. They usually do not cause any significant medical problems, only cosmetic problems.
