Isolated Stretching Services

Full body isolated stretching session to increase tendon and joint range of motion to improve the extensibility of soft tissues.

Woman Sitting with Back PainSitting for long periods forces muscles to lose their elastic properties resulting in shorten & tight fibers that lead to muscle imbalances and weakness.

 Corrective Strategies (Stretches):

Lower Back and Gluteal Stretch

Muscles Stretched:  Lower Back, Hamstrings, Gluteal and Hip Abductors (Goin) Muscles

Hamstring (Straight Leg) Stretch

Muscles Stretched:  Hamstring Muscles (Semitendinosus, Semimembranosus and Biceps Femoris)

Latissimus Dorsi Stretch

Muscles Stretched:  Latissimus Dorsi, Triceps Brachii, Posterior Deltoid, Anterior Serratus Muscles

Hip Flexors Stretch

Muscles Stretched: Psoas and Iliacus muscles

Woman Running with Knee Pain

Limited flexibility can lead to possible injuries resulting in abnormal joint movement, muscle imbalances and restricted performances.

 Corrective Strategies (Stretches):

Muscles Stretched: Tensor Fascia Latae muscle & Iliotibial Band

Piriformis Stretch

Muscles Stretched:  Piriformis and Gluteus Maximus

Hamstring (Straight Leg) Stretch

Muscles Stretched:  Hamstring Muscles (Semitendinosus, Semimembranosus and Biceps Femoris)

Benefits of Flexibility:

Reduces Effects of Aging on the Muscular System

As the body ages, skeletal muscle fibers become smaller in diameter, less elastic and develop increasing amounts of fibrous connective tissue (Fibrosis) making them less flexible with restricted movements and circulation.

Improves Extensibility of Soft Tissue

Improves the elastic properties of muscular fibers allowing for greater extensibility and elasticity.

Corrects Muscle Imbalances

Muscle imbalances are altered length-tension relationships between pairs of muscles or muscle groups that are shortened & tightened or inhibited & weakened. Correcting muscle imbalances will allow for neuromuscular and biomechanical efficiency.

Increases Joint Range of Motion

Increases tendon & joint range of motion (flexion & extension) allowing for maximum degree of joint movement without restrictions.

Relieves Joint Stress

Abnormal joint movement (arthrokinematics) are due to altered length-tension relationships, muscle imbalances and scar tissue. Eliminating scar tissue, muscle imbalances and enhancing the elastic properties of soft tissues will correct arthrokinematics and relieve joint stress.

Facilitates Flow of Lymphatic Fluid & Removal of Metabolic Waste

The elastic properties of flexibility stimulates the circulation and  drainage of lymphatic fluid channeling the removal of waste products out of the body.

Improves Blood Circulation

The elastic properties of flexibility assists in blood circulation which allows for transport of vital nutrients for physiological and rehabilitative modalities promoting health and wellness.

Improves Functional & Athletic Performances

Allows for sustained functionality and performances with less energy consumption, greater elastic properties and force production, enhanced muscle responsiveness, reduced muscle tightness and faster recovery periods.

Reduces Chances of Injuries

The elastic properties of flexibility reduces chances of injuries (soft tissue strains or tears) when performing functional or performance activities.
