Preventive and Therapeutic Stretches
Preventive and therapeutic stretching integrates both active and passive stretching with the intention of addressing common musculoskeletal concerns. Stretching is incredibly important to the overall health and wellness of the body, namely the spine and other structural components.
One of the most common and disabling spinal cord injuries is reduced joint mobility, which can be effectively treated through regular stretching. Stretching is often performed before an exercise to enhance performance and reduce the risk of injury. However, preventive and therapeutic stretches can help increase static flexibility and improve joint range of motion. When used alongside other therapies such as heat and cold therapies or chiropractic remedies, stretching can be extremely effective in reducing injury.
Understanding the Benefits of Stretching
Individuals who have been diagnosed with one of the many common spinal conditions have numerous options when it comes to treatment. Many think surgery is the only option, but this is not true. Preventive and therapeutic stretching can help patients find relief and learn about what is causing the pain, and how to properly and safely move their bodies.
These types of stretches are incredibly beneficial because they can help loosen tight back and neck muscles while treating a range of spinal conditions. In addition to the neck and back, they may also address concerns related to the foot and ankle, knee and leg, hip and thigh, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, and fingers. Dr. Shaikh and the Crescent Pain Relief staff will teach you how to implement various stretching techniques into your daily routine. Over time, you should notice your pain dissipating and eventually disappear altogether. While stretching is not a cure for spinal conditions, it is quite effective when used in conjunction with other alternative therapies.
