Waking up in the morning usually requires a good stretch. This simple action helps loosen and re-align your muscles, which is why stretching is also an important part of any exercise or rehabilitation program.
Stretching treatments involve the deliberate lengthening of muscles in order to increase muscle flexibility and joint range of motion — in addition to warming up your body prior to activity to decrease the risk of injury. Loss of motion may be due to a number of factors, including pain, swelling, muscle spasm, shortening of connective tissue as a result of inactivity or immobilization, or some combination of each.
At Motion Dynamics, we utilize a variety of stretching techniques designed to benefit people of all ages — the young as well as the elderly. In addition to increasing flexibility and range of motion, stretching therapies help improve blood circulation, result in better posture, and even help with stress relief.
