Every morning, you may wake yourself up with a big stretch. Stretching is a natural wakeup call for everyone from newborn babies to senior citizens. Stretching has long been identified as important in and of itself – and not just as an integral component of athletic endeavors. Adding regular stretching to your regular or even daily routine can help you not only feel your best but also take on each day with invigorated purpose and joy.
The Importance of Stretching & Back Injury Physical Therapy
Regular stretching (at least two to three times a week) provides you with a number of readily identifiable and immediate benefits and it simply makes you feel good! But there are other important reasons to incorporate stretching in your day, including the following:
- It’s one of the best ways to keep your muscles healthy and strong.
- Regular stretching increases your flexibility.
- Increased flexibility and muscle strength benefit your joints.
- Healthy muscles and joints increase your overall range of motion and aid in injury prevention.
Additionally, engaging in a regular stretching routine can improve your posture and naturally reduce your stress level.
Stretching: the Basics
Besides simply making you feel good, a stretching routine has many beneficial applications:
- Warding off fatigue and the inability to concentrate;
- Guarding against repetitive-motion injuries;
- Boosting energy; and
- Improving circulation.
Everyone – young and old –can achieve improved health through a personalized regular stretching routine. An experienced chiropractor can show you how.
