The Effect of Static Workplace Stretching on the Balance in Computer Operators with a Single Leg Balance Test
Background: Flexibility is an essential component of the exercise program; however, it is not clear how the best use can be made in an educational program. It is common to spread stretching Exercise


Reducing muscle injuries and reinjuries in one italian professional male soccer team.
Through the implementation of a group and personalized injury prevention program, the total number of muscle injuries and days absent because of injury, in a team of elite soccer players, was reduced, as compared to the previous season.
Stretching: Mechanisms and Benefits for Sport Performance and Injury Prevention
Most stretching techniques (static, ballistic, and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) are effective in increasing static flexibility, but the results for dynamic flexibility as measured by active and passive stiffness, are inconclusive.
The warm-up procedure: to stretch or not to stretch. A brief review.

A proposed model stretching regime is presented based on the literature reviewed and implications of stretching on muscle/tendon flexibility, minimizing injury, enhancing athletic performance, and generally preparing the athlete for exercise are discussed.
Warming-Up and Stretching for Improved Physical Performance and Prevention of Sports-Related Injuries
The majority of the information on this topic tends to support the use of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation techniques for providing the best improvements in flexibility.
Acute effects of static and dynamic stretching on balance, agility, reaction time and movement time.
A DS protocol is more appropriate than SS for activities that require balance, rapid change of running direction (agility) and movement time of the upper extremities and a DS protocol compared to NS performed significantly better in agility.
Red blood cells in sports: effects of exercise and training on oxygen supply by red blood cells
These younger red cells are characterized by improved oxygen release and deformability, both of which also improve tissue oxygen supply during exercise, and cause a decrease in the average age of the population of circulating red blood cells in trained athletes.
Regeneration of injured skeletal muscle after the injury.
The prevailing understanding on the biology of muscle regeneration is summarized in hopes of extending these findings to clinical practice in an attempt to propose an evidence-based approach for the diagnosis and optimal treatment of skeletal muscle injuries.
Effects of dynamic and static stretching within general and activity specific warm-up protocols.
Results would support the use of static stretching within an activity specific warm-up to ensure maximal ROM along with an enhancement in sprint performance.
Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach
The Acute Effects of a Warm-Up Including Static or Dynamic Stretching on Countermovement Jump Height, Reaction Time, and Flexibility
Athletes in sports requiring lower-extremity power should use DS techniques in warm-up to enhance flexibility while improving performance, with no difference in flexibility between SS and DS.
