Steroid effects on stretching

Posted on Dec 2, 2017 in Doctor X files, Other drug question

 

Steroids help increase muscle growth, from what little I know about them. Does any steroid, or other potion such as hydrolyzed collagen, help increase range of motion in normally functioning joints? For example, if a young (62 yo) yoga student desperately wants to move up to the advanced yoga class, but is unable to manage the advanced positions, would, might, or could, a course of steroid (?) help increase muscle and ligament  range of motion when used in combination with active daily stretching? It is my understanding that once elongated, ligaments stay longer, so this would be a permanent change?

 

 

Steroids are useful to increase muscle growth and/or definition. I don’t know about any medication or drug useful to improve flexibility
