Study of the Activation and Oxygenation of Multifidus and Gluteus Medius Muscles During Stretching of the Lower Limb Posterior Chain: Comparison Between Two Different Executions Techniques

SUMMARY Background. Ischiocrural (IC) stretching procedures may result in different involvement¬†of the posterior kinetic chain and of the lumbar spine. Objective. The aim of the study was to evaluate homolateral muscle activation and hemodynamic changes in the Multifidus (MM) and Gluteus medius (GM) muscles in healthy¬†subjects during monolateral IC stretching by using two different execution … Continued
