Stretching offers countless health and fitness benefits.

Stretching is a way of elongating a muscle or muscle group to its fullest length. It is like our body naturally craves a stretch after long periods of sitting or inactivity. With stretching you will feel good. It is a perfect way to cool down and relax after an invigorating workout. It will lower blood pressure and improve the artery function making it a natural stress reliever. As you age, the muscles grow shorter and tighter and you become less flexible making you susceptible to injuries. With a regular stretching routine, it will help to keep you flexible resulting in injury-free. Further, a regular stretching routine will eliminate pain in your body. You have experienced muscle tightness is one of the common causes of low back pain. It is due to the impaired movement patterns and compensation which leads to low back pain. Stretching increases the blood flow to the muscles that helps to nourish the muscles.

It is important to prioritize physical activity like stretching that will improve your movement quality. And the result will amaze you when you are moving with ease and comfort.
