Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Influence of Stretching on Muscle Performance
Official Title  ICMJE Influence of Stretching Hamstring and Quadriceps Femoral Muscles on Peak Torque and the Maximum Power of the Knee
Brief Summary The stretching is performed within sports to improve muscle performance and prevent muscle injury. However, recent studies are contradictory with common practice. Then raised the possibility that stretching before physical activity performed can decrease the muscle performance of healthy subjects.
Detailed Description Not Provided
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 4
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Condition  ICMJE Muscle Strength
Intervention  ICMJE Other: Stretching
Participants were divided into 3 groups. The group was referred to stretching 3 weekly for 4 consecutive weeks. Group B went 4 weeks without any intervention and held only one stretch before the re-test. And the group C performed passive knee mobilization. All participants were assessed for goniometry of the knee in flexion and extension and peak torque and power on the isokinetic dynamometer.
Other Names:
  • peak of torque
  • performance
  • isokinetic dynamometer
