Can chronic stretching change the muscle-tendon mechanical properties? A review.

It is recognized that stretching is an effective method to chronically increase the joint range of motion. However, the effects of stretching training on the muscle-tendon structural properties remain unclear. This systematic review with meta-analysis aimed to determine whether chronic stretching alter the muscle-tendon structural properties. Published papers regarding longitudinal stretching (static, dynamic and/or PNF) … Continue reading Can chronic stretching change the muscle-tendon mechanical properties? A review.
