Muscle Spindle, GTO, and the neurophysiological response to stretch! Wish I found this earlier when I was studying this for the boards
To keep muscles safe and healthy, it is essential that you have a good understanding of the body’s most basic underlying structural components, including Golgi tendon organs (GTOs) and muscle spindles, and how these two receptors work together within the body. Here’s what you need to know about these important proprioceptors involved in stretching and flexibility.
