There are many types of stretching techniques. Following is a guide to the many different types of stretching techniques that exist.
Stretching is essentially a mechanical manual/movement therapy that is aimed at making a soft tissue longer so that we can increase flexibility.
Two primary hypotheses have been proposed to explain the stretching-induced force deficit, in other words, the muscle weakness…
Dynamic stretching’s improvement seems to be related to the increased tissue temperature and increased neural facilitation. Therefore, if the goal of a warm-up is to increase joint ROM and to enhance muscle force and/or power, dynamic stretching seems to be a preferable alternative to static stretching.
Results showed that there were significant shoulder joint ROM increases following both lower body static stretching and lower body dynamic stretching.
