The analgesic effect of stretching increases pain tolerance (Shrier and Gossal 2000). Experts agree that there is insufficient evidence to endorse adding routine stretching to formal warmup for preventing overuse injuries among competitive and recreational athletes (Herbert and Gabriel 2002; McHugh and Cosgrave 2010; Thacker et al. 2004). Some evidence, however, supports the use of preparticipation stretching for reducing risk of muscle strains during performance (McHugh and Cosgrave 2010). Additionally, Chen and colleagues (2011) noted that static stretching and PNF training (3 times·wk−1 for 8 wk) are effective in lessening eccentric-exercise-induced muscle damage.

Range of motion decreases with age due to disuse, changes in tissue viscoelasticity, and diseases such as arthritis. However, stretching improves ROM in older adults (Feland et al. 2001; Ferber, Osternig, and Gravelle 2002). There is a lack of research addressing optimal stretching methods and durations for older adults. Ferber and colleagues (2002) compared the effects of three stretching methods —static stretching, contract-relax (CR) PNF stretching, and agonist contract-relax (ACR) PNF stretching—on knee joint ROM in older adults (50–75 yr).
