connective tissue that surrounds the joint and gives it stability while controlling mobility
When a muscle is stretched ________, stretch receptors within the muscle cells are stimulated
if a muscle spindle is overstretched or stretched too fast, they activate the _______
stretch reflex to prevent injury
GTO respond after the muscle spindles, if a stretch is sustained for ____________
5 seconds or longer
a type of static stretching when a partner assisted stretch often used by athletic trainers, is highlyt effective for increasing flexiblity
proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF)
type of PNF stretching inserts a contraction of the opposing muscle group before the final stretch for i.e. in the hamstring stretch after contracting hamstrings, the person would contract quadriceps, pulling the leg back as far as possible for about ten seconds. If the quadriceps is contracted through reciprocal innervation, the hamstring relaxes even more and can be passively stretched to a greater range of motion
when the muscle is first stretched, then contracted, the gto reflexes are stimulated, relaxing the muscle. to perform a PNF __________ first preform a ten to thirty second static stretch, then contract the muscle for six seconds to produce fatigue, and then relax while a partner stretches your limb for ten to thirty seconds.
contract relax stretch...PNF
