Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Flexibility – Why Stretch?

Stretching is recommended for everyone, regardless of age or flexibility.

By stretching you will:
•Reduce muscle tension
•Improve coordination and body awareness
•Increase flexibility and range of motion
•Reduce the risk of strain from unexpected over-stretch
•Improve circulation
•Prepare for other physical activities

Important Points to Remember:
•Attempt to integrate stretching into your daily routine.
•Always warm up first.
•Do not hold your breath while stretching. Each stretch can be held for 4-8 deep breaths.
•Do not strain. The stretch should always be comfortable.
•Return to neutral slowly.
•Never change position quickly after a stretch is completed, or muscle spasm may occur.
•An average stretch routine should require approximately 15 minutes.
