Restoring range of motion via stress relaxation and static progressive stretch in posttraumatic elbow contractures

Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery 19(2):196 (2010) PMID 19959379

Hypothesis Loss of range of motion after injury or surgery of the elbow is a common complication. We hypothesized that an orthosis that used progressive stretch and stress relaxation principles would improve elbow range of motion.
