AFC's program uses 4 basic stretching modalities for optimal range of motion.. Myofascial release, active stretching, neuromuscular stretching, and static stretching. Each one has a specific benefit. When you are trying to lengthen a tight shorten muscle you should apply all 4 methods to gain optimal range of motion. Myofascial release should be used first, then active, and neuromuscular stretching last. This is the protocol we have found gives us the best benefit.
