Joints - continued

Joint Flexibility = ROM of the joint

STATIC when body segment moved passively, DYNAMIC when achieved by voluntary muscle contraction

Joint Flexibility Depends on:

-Shape of bony structures and intervening muscle/fat

-Laxity and/or Extensibility of collagenous tissue & muscle crossing the joint

-Slightly with temperature elevation

Increase Joint Flexibility:

-Sensory receptors which inhibit or provoke reflex contraction

(Golgi tendon organs (GTO) promote relaxation, muscle spindles promote tension, minimize spindle effect, maximize GTO effect.

-Active and Passive stretching

-Ballistic and Static stretching

-Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation
