Stretching before and after exercise, as well as on a regular basis during periods of inactivity will give you better posture, and fewer aches and pains.
Stretching increases blood flow and circulation to your muscles, but it also gives your brain a boost according to wellness experts, often leaving those who stretch feeling cheerier.
Periods of inactivity such as sitting are hard on your glutes and hip flexors, so standing up to stretch can keep them limber and less prone to injury when you do exercise.
You need a healthy, flexible back for nearly every type of activity, so giving your back a good stretch can prevent injury.
One of the best benefits of stretching is better balance. Especially for older people, stretching can bring your body back into balance which can help prevent falls.
If, after stretching, you are still feeling tight, sore, or your range of motion isn’t what it should be, come in for a good neuromuscular massage. Massage reduces pain and increases range of motion.
