ABSTRACT
Introduction and objectives:
Since the paravertebral muscles promote dynamic stability to protect the spine, the aim of this study was to verify the association between the acute effect of the stretching support time for the multifidus muscle, and changes in the static and dynamic stability of the lumbopelvic region.

Material and methods:
A total of 46 volunteers were cross-submitted to three different stretching interventions for the multifidus muscle, being the manutention of stretching time the variation between interventions: 10, 30 and 60 seconds. Each volunteer was submitted to the three interventions with a minimum interval of 7 days and a maximum of 10 days. The order of the interventions was determined by lot. First, pre-intervention values for static and dynamic stability were collected using a biofeedback pressure unit. Subsequently, the sample was forwarded for intervention according to its group; after the completion of the same, data were collected on post-intervention stability. The data were analyzed using SPSS 20.0 software and Chi-square test, with a significance level of 5% (α = 0.05).

Results:
There was no significant association between the manutention of stretching time and static stability, being χ2(4)=0.812; p=0.949. Similarly, there was no significant association between the stretching support time and dynamic stability, and χ2(4)=1.517; p=0.827.

Conclusions:
In conclusion, there was no significant association between stretching time of the paravertebral muscles and static and dynamic stability
