Functional Stretching is effective for the Rehabilitation Treatment of Orthopedic conditions or injury.

PLEASE CLICK HEADINGS FOR INFORMATION
  • WHY STRETCH

    Open or Close

    • Identifying with the research on stretching & flexibility for people, including athletes

    • It's important to remember that the goal of stretching is to develop & maintain an appropriate range of motion around specific joints.

    • It's also important to realise that stretching (or releasing) tight muscles should go hand in hand with strengthening the weak muscles.

    • Frequently required, from poor postural habits at work, playing sport or gardening.

  • FLEXIBILITY

    Open or Close

    INCREASE MOVEMENT

    Ageing affects parts of the body differently.

    Click this text to link to exercises, that David regularly prescribes.

    • To avoid decrease in strength & performance that may occur in athletes due to static stretching before competition or activity, dynamic stretching is recommended for warm-up.

    • David as your osteopath can advise which stretches, that are specific to you & the environment you are in.

  • SELF HELP

    Open or Close

    Stretching helps to balance muscle groups. Which may may be be overused during exercise or as a result of bad posture.

    • When a joint has limited range of motion, muscles, tendons & ligaments are at risk to strains & sprains.

    • When you stretch on a regular basis the length of your muscles & tendons is increased.

    • As a result of this, muscle tension is minimised & normal range of movement is increased thus improving muscle balance & posture.

    • The more flexible & pliable your muscles, the less chance you will be prone to injuries.

  • EASILY DONE

    Open or Close

    Stretching is great for all ages & levels of flexibility.

    • It's not only great for the body but also good for the mind as it induces a sense of well-being & relaxation.

    • Stretching can be done almost anywhere & at anytime & is easily incorporated as part of your daily routine.

    • Studies support the use of thirty second stretches, as part of general conditioning to improve range of motion.

  • HOW & WHEN TO

    Open or Close
    • After exercise or physical exertion, cool down & hold a given stretch only until you feel a slight pulling in the muscle, but no pain.

    • As you hold the stretch the muscle will relax.

    • Stretching for 30 seconds for a muscle each day, increases range of motion.

    • As you feel less tension you can increase the stretch again until you feel the same slight pull.

    • Hold this position until you feel no further increase.

    • Stretching programs frequently need to be individualised.
