Stretching

Image

Stretching is used to treat adaptive shortening of soft tissues around a joint caused by: prolonged immobilization, restricted mobility, connective tissue or neuromuscular disease, tissue pathology due to trauma, or other muscle restrictions. Muscles stretching causes a disruption of the cells and allows for lengthening of the tissues over time if continued stretching occurs. Slow prolonged holds are generally used to improve muscle length to reduce tension placed on joints or other structures allowing for improved range of motion and overall mobility.
