over stretching

Posted by paula on 4/22/02 at 20:39 (080750)

if you also read the dr board you will see i over stretched again . i thought i was going really light. my pt corrected me. it reminds me of dr ed's recent post about active and passive stretching. ie night splints.

I think I did, too, yesterday after PT/ultrasound. It's hard to know exactly how much is too much!

If it hurts it's too much...even gentle pressure could hurt.

Do not let those folks overstretch you for your PF. I have been to PT and they had a tendancy to really get after the stretching including the incline block,runners stretch,etc. No all Physical Therapist are created equally.
