A clinical protocol is reviewed which utilizes supportive intervention, education, and surface EMG biofeedback to facilitate movement and to maximize effective stretching with chronic musculoskeletal pain patients. Support for this clinical protocol is provided with an overview of the physiological basis of stretching, surface EMG patterns associated with stretching, and the effects of pain and emotional factors on stretching and movement inhibition.
