While skilled methods of physical therapy address specific pain and ultimate return to function, therapeutic stretching techniques focus on injury prevention and enhancement in functional and athletic performance. In other words, therapeutic stretching sessions consist of hands-on techniques applied to a patient by our specialists to muscle groups for a period of 30 – 60 minutes, which serves to benefit the entire body.
What are the benefits?
In short, improved muscle performance due to improved flexibility! After all, shortened muscles are inefficient muscles. Muscle inefficiency leads to decreased performance potential and possible injury. Skilled stretching aids in reducing muscle and joint stiffness. As joint and muscle mobility improves, so does the flexibility and effectiveness of movements.
Whether or not you are an athlete, you could also benefit from improved flexibility. Our introductory session is free for our past or current patients, so you have nothing to lose and flexibility to gain!
