Dear Collegues,

Searches in PubMed and Current Contents for references on the effects of acceleration of stretch on injury of soft tissues (e.g. muscles, tendons, ligaments) were not successful.

References on the following questions would be appreciated:

1) Is acceleration of stretch a factor in producing soft tissue injury?
2) What is the importance of acceleration during stretching of active muscles?
3) What is the importance of velocity versus acceleration of joint rotations on soft tissue injury?

I look forward to your replies.

Best regards,
