Last year we published a randomised trial demonstrating that stretching before sleep reduces the frequency and severity of nocturnal leg cramps in older adults (Hallegraeff et al 2012). The results of that study align perfectly with the uncontrolled study of Daniell (1979). In a recent letter to this journal, Daniell and Pentrack (2013) proposed an alternative stretching procedure for preventing nocturnal leg cramps. Some major differences can be identified between their new stretching procedure and the procedure used in our study.
