Clinical Scenario Stretching exercises are commonly prescribed during warm-up and cool-down protocols, strength and conditioning training programs, and rehabilitation programs. Stretching is applied for the purposes of injury prevention, increasing joint range of motion (ROM), and increasing muscle

from what we found. The aim was to explore residual force enhancement properties of a muscle across its entire length and for all parts of the force–length relationship. While doing these experiments, I realized that passive force following active muscle stretching (and deactivation of the muscle) was

Finding consistent and strong evidence for remote effects due to exercise, stretching, or massage would provide further evidence of the importance of myofascial chains in
