  • This study investigated the eff ects of biomechanical muscle stimulation (BMS) on low-back and hamstring fl exibility and perceived low-back stiff ness. Three healthy populations were examined: college-aged nonathletes, college-aged athletes, and physically active older adults. Low-back stiff ness was reported using a stiff ness Likert scale and range of motion was measured using the sit-and-reach test. Each group received BMS treatment and was retested. The college-aged nonathletes completed a… CONTINUE READING
