Static Stretching on Postural Sway and Plantar Pressures

2018-11-20 20:10:22 | BioPortfolio


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.

The magnitude of the exercise pressor reflex is influenced by the active skeletal muscle mass in the decerebrate rat.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
