Abstract

Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching techniques are becoming more popular among athletes, since they provide (possibly only temporary) increases in joint range of movement compared with other methods. However, other effects – in particular the effects upon the proprioceptive system and its subsequent role in motor control – have not been recorded. The aim of this study was to establish if there are any significant changes in postural sway after the application of a lower limb PNF stretching session.
