Stretching is a great preventive measure for different injuries and helps to maintain an anti-aging effect on the body.
Many patients/ athletes are able to avoid back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, etc. by incorporating a quality stretching routine in their daily lives.
The reason why stretching can help to prevent muscle tears and strains is because regular stretching can lengthen the muscles and increase flexibility.
Also, by doing static stretching before and after exercise, it drastically reduces the chance for an injury to occur.
What many people forget is that stretching shouldn’t be rushed, they should be done gently and in a relaxed manner.
Reaching for a little bit more is a good way to cause an avoidable injury.
Main thing to remember while stretching is that stretching shouldn’t be done in a way that causes pain.
If the stretches you do cause pain, it’s best to stop and reconsider what you are doing.
By getting proper chiropractic treatments and proper stretching in a frequent manner, you will be able to avoid injuries and relieve pain.
