The Benefits Of Stretching
Through the course of our daily routines, there are groups of muscles that do not travel through daily stretching. Overusing these same muscles can lead to decreased flexibility. and tightness. Unless you do some sort of maintenance to lengthen these structures, tightness and potentially pain can develop. Stretching is a way to rebalance the length of muscles that surround a joint while also relieving joint pressure. This allows easier movement and can be done in a quick 2 - 3 minutes.
At Boehm's Physiotherapy, they can give you the right stretches to balance out areas in your body that may be developing tightness. If these stretches are done correctly, it will help to ensure injury prevention or enhanced performance, as movement will be easier for you. The goal with physiotherapy is to reduce the pain and inflammation of the injury. Physiotherapy will also increase flexibility around the injury so that the area of tightness moves easier. This will help to ensure future injury prevention.
