This article connects back to this weeks lecture as we learned about static stretching. Static stretching is the ability to hold an extended position within the ROM. We learned that it is easier to measure & better researched as well. And that this type of stretching is used in most assessment tests. This article talks about how each muscle is gradually stretched, and held 15-30 seconds. Static stretching has less response from proprioceptors and is most often recommended because it is safe and efficient.
