Abstract

Context: Flexibility is promoted as essential to physical fitness, but themechanisms limiting it are not fully understood. Objective: To investigatethe effects of general anesthesia on hamstring extensibility. Design: Repeated measures. Setting. Hospital operating room. Subjects: Eight volunteersundergoing orthopedic surgeries unrelated to the tested limb. Measurement. Three measurements of passive knee extension (PKE) taken before and after administration of general anesthesia. The force applied during the measurements was consistent between trials. Results: Mean PKE range of motion (ROM)was significantly greater before anesthesia (75.0 degrees +/- 11.8 degrees) than after (53.3 degrees +/- 17 degrees; = 5.6, P < .001). Pearson product correlation revealed a significant correlation between the mean difference in PKE ROM between treatment conditions and subjects' body weight (r =.91, P < .05). Conclusions: The findings might be attributable to diminished neural drive to the antagonist muscle groups and suggest a more complex neural control of flexibility than simply neural drive to an agonist muscle.
