The third edition of Facilitated Stretching is now revised, reorganized, and packaged with a DVD—surpassing its popular predecessor as the best source for the latest PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) stretching techniques.
Facilitated Stretching, Third Edition, provides a useful overview of PNF stretching—a safe and easy-to-use method that involves stretching the muscle, contracting it isometrically against resistance, then stretching it again to a new range of motion. These steps apply whether you are isolating one muscle at a time or using the spiral-diagonal patterns of PNF to stretch groups of muscles simultaneously. The third edition contains all the great features of the previous edition, plus the following:
-New stretching routines for a variety of popular activities including running, golf, swimming, cycling, and throwing and racket sports
-General stretches and stretches for older participants
-Stretching activities with added strength work using stability balls and elastic bands
-Stretching and strengthening tips for dealing with—and even preventing—common soft-tissue injuries
More than 350 photographs showing the progression of stretches enrich the book while the new 60-minute DVD demonstrates the stretches and strengthening exercises in even more detail. Icons are featured throughout the text, indicating which exercises are demonstrated on the DVD. A unique binding also allows you to lay the book flat while performing the exercises without losing your place. The DVD serves as a great visual tool for improving your technique and getting the most out of your routines.
An ideal reference for fitness professionals, Facilitated Stretching, Third Edition, provides techniques to help athletes, patients, and clients improve flexibility, strength, and coordination while also treating and preventing injuries. Students in massage therapy, athletic training, and other professional training programs will discover how to use facilitated stretching in conjunction with massage and other manual therapy techniques. A test package is also available for instructors and is conveniently offered through a product-specific Web site: www.HumanKinetics.com/FacilitatedStretching.
With Facilitated Stretching, Third Edition, you have a cutting-edge tool packed with the latest PNF stretching techniques to help you assess current muscle function, improve range of motion, increase strength, reduce overuse injuries, and enhance performance.

Layout of book and extensive photos focus on showing and explaining actually how to properly do the stretches. The companioin DVD is also helpful. I am pleased with the quality of the binding/printing. Maybe this is alitte advanced for a layman. - i.e. someone not familiary with the lingo of physical therapy /therapists. But the book tries to explain each term without assuming you automatically know what is meant. I thought this book was similar to the book "Stretch to Win" by Frederick Ann. But this is different - no regrets though - would recommend this book if you are going through a rehab for an injury or practicing healthy stretching before sports activity or working out. I injured my rotator cuff and had "frozen shoulder" for half a year - so I bought this after I recovered to keep educating myself on proper stretching. Glad I found this on Overstock. Good deal. Thanks. ...
