to put another twist on this – i have found that ROM can be increased greatly in less than 2 min depending on the situation. certainly if you have more difficult problems, you’ll have to spend more time on it, perhaps upwards of 10 minutes as suggested by some mwod videos. spending more time on something also increases the risk of inducing real trauma into an area. as Kstarr says, never go into the pain cave.
