Abstract

Therapeutic stretching is a vital component of chronic musculoskeletal pain rehabilitation for increasing range of motion and counteracting the effects of physical deconditioning. Surface EMG biofeedback is currently being used to facilitate movement and to maximize effective stretching with patients in an interdisciplinary chronic pain rehabilitation program for disabled workers. A clinical protocol with case examples is presented.
