What are the contraindications to stretching?
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.
What is stretching in physiotherapy?
Stretching is a form of physical exercise in which a specific muscle or tendon (or muscle group) is deliberately flexed or stretched in order to improve the muscle’s felt elasticity and achieve comfortable muscle tone. The result is a feeling of increased muscle control, flexibility, and range of motion.
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 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 absolute exercise contraindications?
Absolute contraindications to aerobic and resistance training programs include recent myocardial infarction or electrocardiography changes, complete heart block, acute congestive heart failure, unstable angina, and uncontrolled severe hypertension (BP ≥180/110 mm Hg).
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.
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 safety precaution of stretching?
Use these tips to keep stretching safe: Don’t consider stretching a warmup. You may hurt yourself if you stretch cold muscles. Before stretching, warm up with light walking, jogging or biking at low intensity for five to 10 minutes. Even better, stretch after your workout when your muscles are warm.
What are the 4 types of stretching?
4 Different Stretches for Different Situations
- Active Stretching. Active stretching involves holding a pose to utilize a targeted muscle group.
- Passive Stretching. This type of stretching is best for balance enhancement and flexibility.
- Dynamic Stretching.
- PNF Stretching.
What is most important principle in stretching?
To stretch safely, you must adhere to the four main principles of avoiding pain, stretching slowly, stretching the right muscle, and working only the necessary joints and muscles. These guidelines are designed to make your stretching safer and more effective and to increase your awareness of your body.
What is sustained stretching?
With slow, sustained stretching, muscles are gradually lengthened through a joint’s full range of motion, and the final position is held for a few seconds. Since the stretch receptors are not fired, the muscles relax and greater stretch can occur with less chance of injury.
What is proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation technique?
PNF is a stretching technique utilized to increase ROM and flexibility. PNF increases ROM by increasing the length of the muscle and increasing neuromuscular efficiency. PNF stretching has been found to increase ROM in trained, as well as untrained, individuals.
What are the different types of stretching?
There are four types of stretching – active stretching, passive stretching, dynamic stretching, and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching, which involves table stretching.
What kind of exercise is dynamic stretching?
Dynamic stretching is a movement-based type of stretching. It uses the muscles themselves to bring about a stretch. It’s different from traditional “static” stretching because the stretch position is not held.
What is passive stretching?
Passive stretching is a technique in which you are relaxed and make no contribution to the range of motion. Instead, an outside agent creates force, either manually or mechanically. Examples include using a towel, band, gravity or another person to help you stretch.
