Why Stretching Matters

Why Stretching Matters

Elements Massage Scottsdale Promenade

In today’s technology driven world, many individuals don’t allocate time to the simple pleasures of life. Stretching is one of the best things that you can do for your body. At Elements Massage Scottsdale Promenade, we recommend that all of our clients incorporate stretching into their regular wellness routine. Here’s why it is so important:

  • Prevents Injury
    Regular stretching can help keep your muscles pliable and elastic. In return, this flexibility can increase your regular range of motion and protect against injury.
  • Joint Health
    Good joint health is often attributed to great flexibility. Experts cite that lack of flexibility can cause issues with cartilage health and even impact your joints ability to lubricate themselves.
  • Muscle Stiffness
    Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) typically sets in 24-48 hours after activity. To reduce the muscle spasms that result in that uncomfortable soreness, stretching before and after exercise can help alleviate that annoying stiff feeling.
  • Better Performance
    When it comes to sports, fostering a good range of motion can help improve performance through streamlining how efficient your body movements are. Regular stretching can not only prepare your body and promote recovery before and after exercise but can serve to improve your performance during any type of event.
  • Spine Health
    More than 80 percent of adult Americans report suffering from back pain in their lives. To help counter this alarming statistic, increasing flexibility in the spine, pelvis, and knees can help combat the nerve pressure responsible for spinal pain.

At Elements Massage Scottsdale Promenade, we are here to help you get in touch with your healthiest self. Whether through activity, massage, stretching, you name it, we’d love to help you unwind, relax, and feel your best!
