Strength Training versus Stretching for Improving Range of Motion

Strength Training versus Stretching for Improving Range of Motion



Range of motion is the angle by which a joint moves from its resting position to the extremities of its motion in any given direction


Conditions that can negatively affect ROM are Ankylosing spondylitis, Cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis


ROM is improved through increased stretch tolerance, augmented fascicle length, and changes in pennation angle


The study concluded that both Strength training and stretching were not different in their effects on ROM
