I'm saying that I think that active stretching is essentially a form of strengthening. I work with a bunch of sports med people so I can ask them stuff if you want, but a lot of rehab is just retraining movements which is a form of repetitive motor movements, which is what flossing seems to be.
I gave the example of piriformis syndrome.
As a counterpoint to this (i.e. on your side) tendonitis issues are often relieved by doing light weight eccentric movements. Would this count as flossing to you?
I really don't have a horse in this race, but I don't see why you don't consider stretching and repetitive movements as strengthening and conditioning. I.e. you're conditioning motor patterns in a setting where injury is pretty much impossible. Flossing just seems to figure into this. Seems like something to do to increase blood flow post injury as well.
Like you, I don't buy into chiro stuff at all. I also don't see this entire graston technique thing as anything.
Re: Wtf I was talking about. It was in relation to training muscle pattern and movement. It's the opposite bs argument as saying that lifting doesn't carry over to sports.
I seem to have missed the earlier discussion. I'd like to hear more about what you think and why. You can pm if you want. I'm just curious.
