I learnt that by stretching a muscle in a certain fashion, in a certain way, for a certain amount of time doesnt effect it’s structure (Solomonow 2007, Weppler 2010, Katalinic 2011)
I learnt that you don’t need to mobilise or manipulate a joint in a specific direction, based on a specific assessment of pain and joint feel (Chiradejnant 2003, Aquino 2009, Schomacher 2009, Nyberg 2013)
