I briefly discussed the benefits of Microstretching in my recent article How to Relieve Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS). There is pending research that Low intensity static stretching or Microstretching may be beneficial for DOMS, as well as improve your range of motion.
You have to go back to my 2010 article on Microstretching to read more on the benefits.
Derek Hansen of (my co-founder at StrengthPowerSpeed.com) did an interview with Nikos Apostolopoulos, the founder and developer of a progressive form of stretch therapy known as microSTRETCHING®.
Nikos developed the technique in 1995 when he was recovering from a motor vehicle accident, when he was hit by a car while training on his bike as a competitive cyclist. Since then he has worked with numerous professional teams, elite individual athletes and the general population in the area of rehabilitation, recovery and regeneration. He is also in the final stages of completing his PhD on the topic of micostretching and its role in addressing inflammatory responses to exercise, injury and trauma.
For more information on Nikos, you can visit his website at www.microstretching.com or follow him on Twitter at @microstretching.
