The purpose of this study was to evaluate the immediate and delayed changes in muscle stiffness (in a resting and contracted state) related to DN of the gastrocnemius compared to a sham DN condition. To further investigate this relationship, we investigated these changes at the site of the TP, as well as at a standard site (medial head of the gastrocnemius). We hypothesize that gastrocnemius DN reduces muscle stiffness in individuals with TP.
