Education: Receptors for Stretching
Muscles are able to do two things, stretch and contract. Allowing these processes to take place are two key receptors. These sensory mechanoreceptors are the Muscle Spindle and Golgi Tendon Organ (GTO). Each has distinctive roles in the muscles ability to function.
1) Muscle Spindle: Change in Length & Velocity
2) Golgi Tendon Organ: Change in Tension
The Muscle Spindle wrap around muscle fibers detecting thickness changes as the muscles moves. They prevent the muscle stretching past its end point or stretching too quickly that may result in injury.
The Golgi Tendon Organ at the muscle’s tendon senses how much tension the muscle is exerting. The GTO is able to inhibit the muscle from creating additional force protecting against injury.
DSR therapies available to help assist with the muscle’s ability to stretch: Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST), Yoga, Massage, Lotke Method
