Effects of Quadriceps and Hamstrings Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching on Knee Movement Sensation
TLDR
It is concluded that PNF stretching of the hamstrings and quadriceps may acutely diminish sensitivity to knee movement, consistent with previous reports of loss in muscle force and power immediately after stretching, suggesting that stretching just before competition may diminish performance.

Blood Flow Restriction Training: Implementation into Clinical Practice
TLDR
Overall, it appears BFR training is a safe and effective tool for rehabilitation, however, additional research is needed prior to widespread application. Expand
Periodization and physical therapy: Bridging the gap between training and rehabilitation.

The patient was able to return to work and had dramatically improved balance, coordination, and gait with sport simulation activities with Implicit motor learning techniques incorporated through sport and job task simulation activities along with task-oriented neuromuscular reeducation. Expand
The Effect of Cuff Width for Determining Limb Occlusion Pressure: A Comparison of Blood Flow Restriction Devices
TLDR
The study found that the relative pressure of the wide cuff is lower than the narrow cuff, and therefore the KAATSU unit reached maximum pressure with all participants, therefore it was unable to achieve complete arterial occlusion with the narrower cuff. Expand
