Table 1. Time course of dorsiflexion range of motion in static stretching and minute oscillation stretching.
Static stretching (%) Minute oscillation stretching (%)
Immediately post-stretching 7.2 ± 8.1 11.2 ± 14.6
15 min post-stretching 0.4 ± 7.9 * 10.7 ± 11.1
30 min post-stretching 0.2 ± 10.6 * 5.5 ± 13.5
60 min post-stretching -1.0 ± 9.4 * -2.0 ± 12.2*
*: significantly different compared with immediately post-stretching (p < 0.05).
†: significantly different compared with 15 min post-stretching (p < 0.05).
‡: significantly different compared with 30 min post-stretching (p < 0.05). Values at each time point are the relative changes from the pre-intervention values. Values are expressed as mean ± standard deviation.
