What is partner-assisted stretching?
This is one of the biggest benefits of visiting a professional for stretch therapy. Your therapist will be able to put you in the best position for a deep relaxing stretch that will give you the most targeted and effective stretch experience.
The primary goal of stretch therapy is to treat muscle tightness, joint imbalances, and tissue restrictions that cause movement distortions, aches and pains, and increased risk of injury. Over time, stretch therapy can improve range of motion, leading to improved mobility and fewer injuries. Whether you engage in repetitive movement activities through work or fitness, injuries or postural issues, all of these can lead to poor movement patterns that decrease joint range of motion and muscles length over time. If left unchecked these imbalances in your muscles and joints affect your movement quality which decreases performance and increases your risk of injury. Stretch therapy is one modality that can help to begin to restore healthy tissue and movement quality.
