Default Long Duration Static Stretching

Hi all,

Recently I've been seeing more and more recommendations for long duration, low load static stretching to reduce pain and improve function. For example, in the case of plantar fascitis, it is often recommended that a person wear a Strausberg Sock, which provides this stretch. I've also seen it applied in patello-femoral pain with long duration rectus femoris and supine hip internal rotation stretching.

I am having difficulty locating any literature on the topic, but would love to know of any, and would also love to hear Soma Simple's opinions regarding the strategy.

Thanks, and have a great week!
