Myofascial releasing rollers are muscle massage devices used by athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and those recovering from injury to enhance functional ability. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to assess the acute effects of self myofascial releasing rollers on muscle strength, power, and flexibility compared to static stretching and control. STUDY DESIGN: Thirteen adult recreationally trained subjects consented to participate in a 3-week, counterbalanced repeated measure study, which… Expand

TLDR
It appears that applying brief upper body manual therapy treatment improved overhead jump and reach height in high level basketball players. Expand

Effects of myofascial release after high-intensity exercise: a randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
Myofascial release massage favors the recovery of HRV and diastolic BP after high-intensity exercise to preexercise levels. Expand
ACUTE EFFECTS OF STATIC STRETCHING ON PEAK TORQUE IN WOMEN
TLDR
Overall, these findings indicated that static stretching impairs maximal force production, and strength and conditioning professionals should consider this before incorporating static stretching in preperformance activities. Expand
THE ACUTE EFFECTS OF STATIC AND BALLISTIC STRETCHING ON VERTICAL JUMP PERFORMANCE IN TRAINED WOMEN
TLDR
The results indicated that there was no significant difference in VJ scores as a result of static or ballistic stretching, elapsed time, or initial flexibility scores, suggesting that stretching prior to competition may not negatively affect the performance of trained women. Expand
The effect of static stretch and dynamic range of motion training on the flexibility of the hamstring muscles.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that, although both static stretch and DROM will increase hamstring flexibility, a 30-second static stretch was more effective than the newer technique, DROM, for enhancing flexibility. Expand
Acute Effects of Dynamic Stretching, Static Stretching, and Light Aerobic Activity on Muscular Performance in Women
TLDR
Dynamic stretching has greater applicability to enhance performance on power outcomes compared to static stretching and light aerobic activity on selected measures of range of motion and power in untrained females. Expand
The effect of duration of stretching of the hamstring muscle group for increasing range of motion in people aged 65 years or older.
TLDR
Longer hold times during stretching of the hamstring muscles resulted in a greater rate of gains in ROM and a more sustained increase in ROM in elderly subjects, and may differ from those of studies performed with younger populations because of age-related physiologic changes. Expand
The immediate effects of manual massage on power-grip performance after maximal exercise in healthy adults.
TLDR
Manual massage to the forearm and hand after maximal exercise was associated with greater effects than nonmassage on postexercise grip performance, and the present data support the use of a 5-minute manual massage to assist immediate grip performance after fatigue in healthy subjects. Expand
Reduced strength after passive stretch of the human plantarflexors.
TLDR
The data indicate that prolonged stretching of a single muscle decreases voluntary strength for up to 1 h after the stretch as a result of impaired activation and contractile force in the early phase of deficit and by impaired contractiles force throughout the entire period of deficit. Expand
THE EFFECT OF STATIC,BALLISTIC, AND PROPRIOCEPTIVE NEUROMUSCULAR FACILITATION STRETCHING ON VERTICAL JUMP PERFORMANCE
The purpose of this study was to compare the acute effects of different modes of stretching on vertical jump performance. Eighteen male university students (age, 24.3 ± 3.2 years; height, 181.5 ±Expand
Effects of Low- and High-Volume Stretching on Bench Press Performance in Collegiate Football Players
TLDR
It is concluded that low- and high-volume PNF and static stretching have no significant acute effect on 1RM bench press in resistance-trained collegiate football players, which suggests that resistance- trained athletes can include either a dynamic warm-up with no stretching or a dynamicwarm-up in concert with low- or high- volume static or PNF flexibility exercises before maximal upper body isotonic resistance-training lifts, if adequate rest is allowed before performance.
