StrechesStretching provides many benefits to increase patient’s response to healing.  Stretching will help you:

  • Reduce muscle tension
  • Increase flexibility
  • Increase Range of Motion (ROM) of your joints
  • Enhance muscle coordination
  • Increase circulation of the blood to promote healing
  • Relieve stress on joints
  • Improve endurance
  • May increase your energy levels

At Tranquility Chiropractic Studio, we use passive and active forms of stretching.  Static stretching means the therapist is doing the stretch for you.  Active stretching means you are actively participating in the stretch.  The form on stretching we use in our clinic  is called Proprioceptive Neruomuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching that is an alternation of passive stretching and isometric contraction of the muscle.  It’s very effective.

At any rate, you will find that stretching will help you recover more quickly!
