This article refers to orthopedic contractures, i.e., permanent shortening of muscles, tendons, and/or ligaments. For short-term contraction of muscles, including the normal action and function of muscles, see Muscle contraction. For non-orthopedic types of contractures, see the “See Also” section below.
A muscle contracture is a permanent shortening of a muscle or joint. It is usually in response to prolonged hypertonic spasticity in a concentrated muscle area, such as is seen in the tightest muscles of people with conditions like spastic cerebral palsy.
Contractures are essentially muscles or tendons that have remained too tight for too long, thus becoming shorter. Once they occur, it is often argued that they cannot be stretched or exercised away (they must be released with orthopedic surgery). Most of the physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other exercise regimens targeted towards people with spasticity focuses on trying to prevent contractures from happening in the first place. However, research on sustained traction of connective tissue in approaches such as adaptive yoga has demonstrated that contracture can be reduced, at the same time that tendency toward spasticity is addressed.
Contractures can also be due to ischemia, as in Volkmann’s contracture.
Excessive matrix metalloproteinase and myofibroblast accumulation in the wound margins can result in contracture.
Vaasi yoga (vasi yoga) is a form of yoga that concentrates on the breath naadi (nadi), the cycle of the distribution of oxygen throughout the body, that occurs as part of the breathing process. Indian philosophy describes prana (life force) as flowing in channels called naadis. Vaasi yoga attempts to heal the body and sprirt by cleansing the breath naadi, and thus prepare for balance, true consciousness of self and then enlightenment. As such it is one of the kaya kalpa, the class of ancient yogic rejuvenation therapies. As a yogic practice it is an art of living taught by siddhars for over 3000 years ago, as initiated by Lord Shiva. Like other advanced types of yoga which should be practiced only under the guidance of Guru. Vaasi yoga is practiced by very few.
Vaasi yogam is the attainment of consciousness about the silent sound in our breath. To attain this consciousness, the body should be devoid of any waste. To remove all the waste from one’s body, one should be taught with asanas by a guru who should be in a position to analyze the naadi functionality of one’s body. A guru who has the capacity to analyze the naadi functionality is called Siva Sithan.
Dream Yoga or Milam (Standard Tibetan: rmi-lam or nyilam; Sanskrit: स्वप्नदर्शन, svapnadarśana)—the Yoga of the Dream State—is a suite of advanced tantric sadhana of the entwined Mantrayana lineages of Dzogchen (Nyingmapa, Ngagpa, Mahasiddha, Kagyu and Bönpo). Dream Yoga are tantric processes and techniques within the trance Bardos of Dream and Sleep (Standard Tibetan: mi-lam bardo) Six Yogas of Naropa. In the tradition of the tantra, Dream Yoga method is usually passed on by a qualified teacher to his/her students after necessary initiation. Various Tibetan lamas are unanimous that it is more of a passing of an enlightened experience rather than any textual information.
In a footnote on ‘Zhitro’ (Tibetan: zhi khro) Namdak & Dixey, et al. (2002: p. 124) identify that the ‘dream body’ and the ‘bardo body’ is the ‘vision body’ (Tibetan: yid lus):
In the bardo one has…the yilu (yid lus), the vision body (yid, consciousness; lus, body). It is the same as the body of dreams, the mind body.”

Vert Shock is a new vertical jump training program created by professional player, Adam Folker, and top dunker, Justin “Jus Fly” Darlington.
The program takes a different approach to traditional vertical leap training and uses solely the principals of high-intensity advanced plyometrics to produce maximum gains in the quickest amount of time.
Surprisingly, this approach was found to be highly effective, with thousands of athletes reporting gains of anywhere between 8-15 inches during the 8 weeks of the program.
It also comes with a 60 day money back guarantee and provides full support.
If you’re looking to increase your vertical in the fastest way possible, Vert Shock would be the best choice to give you these results.
What Exactly Is Vert Shock?
Vert Shock is a new vertical jump training system developed by Adam Folker and Justin ‘Jus Fly’ Darlington. It’s a 3 phase step-by-step program that was made specifically to help athletes increase their explosiveness and jump higher.
The program guarantees to increase your vertical by 9-15 inches within the course of just 8 weeks and have you dunking in no time.
It’s a pretty bold statement, and if you know me you know I don’t believe in fairy tales or magic solutions…
I was very curious to try this program because the guys who created it (Adam Folker and Justin ‘Jus Fly’) are pretty legit and reputable, and their name is attached to this program, so they won’t waste their time or risk their name with a scammy low-quality product.
Plus, the program seemed to be working for so many people with a lower vertical than mine so I thought to myself if they can do it, then so could I.
Who Is Adam Folker?
Adam Folker is the guy who created Vert Shock. Already in high school Adam made a name for himself when he was selected as one of the Top 5 high school basketball players in Canada.
After that, he played Division-I basketball in the NCAA for UC Irvine, and now he’s playing professional basketball overseas.
But Adam wasn’t always a great athlete.
He actually confessed that in his early years he could barely touch the rim (a lot like me) and he was nothing special as an athlete.
This is quite a statement for someone who played Center at UC Irvine (one of the biggest basketball franchises in the NCAA) and has trained with NBA players.
When I heard about him and his Folker System program, I knew anything he’d have to say about jumping would at least prove to be useful for me.
Who Is Justin ‘Jus Fly’?
If you don’t know who Jus Fly is and you’re a passionate jumper then you’ve been living under a rock for the past 2 years.
Justin Darlington aka ‘Jus Fly’ is one of the world’s best dunkers.
It’s estimated that his vertical is 53 inches (CRAZY) and he has used these 53 inches of air time to build himself a name by showcasing his talent all over the world winning some huge dunk contests, including the Nike Dunk Contest with Lebron and Anthony Davis.
The guy is so good that a few teams on the NBA actually hired him to come and train their athletes.
A famous example would be DeMar DeRozan from the Raptors, who was trained for the NBA Dunk Contest by no less than Jus Fly himself.
All this is proof enough to show you that the guy definitely knows what he’s doing.
Over the years Jus Fly has developed some really unique strategies and techniques that helped him increase his vertical up to 53 inches and established him as one of the top dunkers on the planet.
Jus Fly has played a huge role in the building of this program due his large knowledge and experience.
He shares a lot of his methods and routines inside Vert Shock.
How Does Vert Shock Work?
Vert Shock works by using very specific high-intensity high-impact workouts which target your nervous system, particularly the nerves in your legs. It uses advanced plyometrics and exercises that focus heavily on your Type-2 Fibers, these are your fast-twitch muscle fibers.
The idea behind this method is that the faster your muscles will fire, the more force you’ll be able generate, and the higher your jump will be.
3 Phase System
Vert Shock is designed as an 8 week training program and it’s broken down into 3 different phases: Pre-Shock, Shock and Post-Shock phase.
This is the first phase of the program, it lasts for only one week and it’s designed to get your body up and ready for the main portion of the training (which is the Shock Phase).
It’s basically a pre-conditioning period where you ‘warm-up’ your body and prepare it to take some serious beating.
Already in this phase I gained 3 inches and felt the improvement.
I’ve seen people who even gained 5 inches, but this is a rare case though.
Typically most guys gain about 1-3 inches in this week.
On to the next phase…
2. Shock Phase
Coming up next we have the Shock Phase.
This is where the real action begins.
It’s where the “shocking” of your muscles actually takes place.
It’s also where I made most of my progress.
The Shock Phase lasts for 6 full weeks and it’s in this phase where your body is constantly put under pressure and your muscles are constantly stimulated to behave differently.
The goal here is to get your muscles to react super fast in order to create that high explosive strength that sends you above the rim.
This phase was initially pretty easy for me, but as I made progress through the program it started getting harder and harder because my muscles were starting to get sore and I was very tired near the end of it.
However it was very much worth it because…
I gained 7 inches from it!
And it’s in this stage where I finally got my first dunk. (#YEAH!!!)
3. Post Shock
Finally there’s the Post-Shock phase, which is the last week of the program.
This week is where you seal-off your newly obtained gains and make your muscles accustomed to the fast neurological response.
I hardly gained anything in this week, but it didn’t bother me at all because I was happy to finally slow it down a bit and allow myself to take it easy after 6 straight weeks of hardcore training.
My Results With The Program
Overall I can’t be happier with the results I’ve gotten from Vert Shock, I managed to gain 10 inches and achieve my goal of dunking.
For me that’s absolutely insane.
Nothing I tried in the past has worked for me so well.
Even Jesse (who finally took the time to try VS himself) has now come to agreement with me that VS is easily one of the best vertical jump programs right now.
For me, nothing comes close to it in terms of effectiveness and value-for-money (only $67 after discount), it’s the cure I had been waiting for all that time.
And now, after 2 months down the road, I can finally say that I don’t have to rely only on my jump shot to survive on the court, my game is much more rounded and people are definitely starting to take notice.
Opponents that once thought they had me all figured out now don’t know what to do about me. They can’t seem to handle the fact that I’m blocking their shots and stealing all their rebounds. I’ve managed to overcome one of my greatest limitations in the game and it’s all thanks to this program.
I don’t want to sound like I’m bragging, I know I’m far from being inducted into the hall of fame, but I’m very happy that I found something that works.
It Has a 60 Day Money Back Guarantee – If for any reason you feel unsatisfied with the program, you can get all of your money back within 60 days.
