Contraindications to Stretching
- Bony block on end of range (EOR) on passive assessment.
- Unstable/recent fracture.
- Acute soft tissue injury.
- Infection/haematoma in tissues.
- Post surgical repairs e.g, skin grafts, tendon repair.
- Client refusal.
- The following should be kept in mind as contraindications to stretching: Joint instability can be the result of a prior dislocation, fracture, or sprain. Get advice from your physical therapist or orthopaedic surgeon before stretching an area of previous injury. Conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis can leave joint structures weakened.

Which type of stretching is contraindicated prior to working out?
Ballistic Stretching This is stretching, or “warming up”, by bouncing into (or out of) a stretched position, using the stretched muscles as a spring which pulls you out of the stretched position. (e.g. bouncing down repeatedly to touch your toes.) This type of stretching is not considered useful and can lead to injury.
What is the biggest contraindication for ballistic stretching?
Stretching movements that are too forceful can damage the soft tissues around the joints, such as ligaments and tendons. This can develop into tendonitis. Over time, small muscle tears can develop and can lead to reduced flexibility and movement.
What are precautions to stretching?
Use these tips to keep stretching safe:
- Don’t consider stretching a warmup. You may hurt yourself if you stretch cold muscles.
- Strive for symmetry.
- Focus on major muscle groups.
- Don’t bounce.
- Hold your stretch.
- Don’t aim for pain.
- Make stretches sport specific.
- Keep up with your stretching.
What are the risk of stretching?
Like other forms of exercise, stretching puts stress on your body. If you’re stretching the same muscle groups multiple times a day, you risk over-stretching and causing damage. Don’t go into your stretches cold. Cold muscles are not as pliable, which makes stretching a lot more difficult.
What is the biggest contraindication for stretching quizlet?
Contraindications for applying stretching techniques include osteoporosis, acute rheumatoid arthritis, and acute injury or muscle strain or tear.
Why you should not stretch before exercise?
It’s not proven to help prevent injury, curb muscle soreness after exercise, or improve your performance. Static stretching before exercise can weaken performance, such as sprint speed, in studies. The most likely reason is that holding the stretch tires out your muscles.
What are adjuncts to stretching interventions?
Adjuncts to Stretching Interventions Superficial or deep heat, massage, biofeedback, and joint traction also are useful adjuncts to stretching procedures.
What are principles of stretching?
To be effective, stretching must be done slowly, gently and frequently. Slowly means that while the exercise is being done the muscle being stretched must be moved slowly so that you can easily be aware of the tension in the muscle even when it is quite light.
What is P and F stretching?
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is an advanced form of flexibility training, which involves both the stretching and contracting of the muscle group being targeted. PNF stretching is one of the most effective forms of stretching for improving flexibility and increasing range of motion.
What are two common precautions to stretching?
Precautions for Flexibility Activities
- Use correct stretching techniques and try to move smoothly.
- Don’t force a joint beyond a comfortable range of motion.
- Do a brief warm-up before stretching, like a light walk.
- Stretch in a slow and relaxed way.
- Avoid bouncing or jerking.
What does stretching protect or keep safe on your body?
Stretching can help in numerous ways. It can often relieve back pain, stiff necks, and sore knees when tight muscles are to blame. It can counteract too much sitting whether you’re doing it for work or a pleasurable activity.
What are the safety rules in bending and stretching?
Tips for stretching safely:
- Stay within your comfort range. Expect to feel some tension while you’re stretching. If you feel pain, you’ve gone too far.
- Move slowly and support your body.
- Hold each stretch for 10-15 seconds.
- Breathe freely as you hold each stretch; try not to hold your breath.
What are three dangers of stretching?
Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage.
Can stretching cause damage?
Overstretching can result in an injury, such as a strain or a sprain. To avoid overstretching or pushing your range of motion beyond your capability for flexibility take steps, such as: warming up properly before working out. using correct form during workouts and when stretching.
When is stretching most effective?
The best time to stretch is after exercise, when your muscles are warm. True and false: It’s safer to stretch a warm muscle, and warm muscles are more relaxed and have greater range of motion. However, walking briskly or jogging for five minutes, until you break a light sweat, is a sufficient warm-up for stretching.
