INTRODUCTION Passive stretch therapy is utilized to improve the range of motion of chronically shortened muscles. However, human studies show conflicting results as whether passive stretch is clinically effective. METHODS The soleus muscles of adult rats were tenotomized to induce muscle shortening adaptation. Muscles included were non-treated normal, subjected to daily static stretch, or lengthened and isometrically contracted for 20 min/day. Muscle fiber structure was analyzed… CONTINUE READING
