PROM
En Gran Bretaña el término prom es la forma abreviada de promenade concert, y hace referencia a un concierto de música clásica en el que una parte del público permanece de pie en una zona del auditorio reservada al efecto. La serie de conciertos de este tipo más conocida es la que se celebra cada verano en el Royal Albert Hall de Londres, y que tuvo su origen en 1895 a partir de una idea del director de orquesta Henry Wood. Actualmente convertidos en una institución nacional, destaca entre todas las actuaciones la llamada Last Night of the Proms en la que se interpretan piezas de carácter patriótico, entre otras de repertorio.
En Estados Unidos un prom es un baile de gala que se celebra para los alumnos de un centro de educación secundaria o universitaria. De todos estos bailes el más famoso es el senior prom, al que asisten los alumnos del último año de una high school y que se considera un acontecimiento de gran importancia para los adolescentes estadounidenses. Los alumnos acuden normalmente con su pareja y visten de etiqueta: esmoquin los chicos y traje de noche las chicas.

The only contraindication is lack of passive range of motion at the shoulder joint.
Effects of stretching duration on active and passive range of motion in the lower extremity.
(2,4) Passive range of motion begins as split is discontinued, with isometric strengthening initiating at eight to ten weeks, progressing to weight bearing and plyometrics.
Twenty two (47.8%) of the participants underwent regular supervised physiotherapy including active and passive range of motion exercises and resistive exercises for greater than 60 minutes daily.
As shown in the current study static stretching was effective in increasing hamstring flexibility which coincide with other study!17] which stated that passive static stretching is the best option for the improvement of both active and passive range of motion. Two mechanisms are essentially considered responsible for ROM increase after muscle stretching: in the first one, an alteration in the sensitivity of pain receptors increases stretching tolerance and, consequently, the effectiveness of the techniques!18]; and in the second one, changes in tissue viscoelasticity, such as the decrease in the passive tension of the muscle tendon unit immediately after stretching, are the primary reasons for the flexibility gain!19].
Patients' passive range of motion (PROM) measurements for the study were assessed by clinicians with a combined 35+ years of experience, including 30 years of combined experience performing spring training physicals for professional baseball players.
PNF stretching, or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching, are stretching techniques commonly used in clinical environments to enhance both active and passive range of motion with the ultimate goal being to optimize motor performance and rehabilitation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PNF_stretching).
Techniques such as prolonged muscle stretch (PMS) have been shown to increase the passive range of motion (PROM), decrease the passive resistance of ankle dorsiflexors, and suppress hypertonia [20]; however, these techniques tend to be highly subjective or preferential with little or no quantitative guidelines for clinical practitioners.
Age, sex, duration of disease, level of education, employment, diabetes mellitus, SPADI score and active and passive range of motion were recorded and compared at baseline and after 6 weeks.
The bandage was changed weekly, and physical therapy, consisting of 15 minutes of passive range of motion of the right wing, was performed at each examination.
