The most established and obvious benefit of stretching is to help improve flexibility and range of motion. Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is one of the most widely used methods of stretching by today's athletes, personal/athletic trainers, and professionals. This technique involves the method to work with the body's natural physiological makeup to improve circulation, increase blood flow, elasticity of the muscle joints and fascia by holding each stretch for only two seconds. Performing the stretches in short increments allows the target muscles to optimally lengthen without triggering the muscle reflex.
Stretched Out® technique of passive stretching along with active isolated stretching provides effective, active, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups to achieve optimal flexibility. A safe hands-on technique that involves gentle sustained pressure on the specific muscles to optimally lengthen without activating the muscle reflex.
This concept proves maximum benefit and can be accomplished without opposing tension or resulting trauma. As our body ages, a lack of flexibility can cause movement to become slower and less fluid, making an individual more susceptible to muscle strains or other soft tissue injuries. This can put a damper on active lifestyles and even hinder day-to-day, normal motions. An increase in flexibility is accompanied by improved balance and coordination. While chronically tense and tight muscle contribute to poor posture, stretching the muscles of the lower back, chest and shoulders can help keep the spine in better alignment and improve overall posture.
The oversight of practitioner assisted stretching in the relief of symptoms of such diseases such as MS, MD, Parkinson's, Diabetes, and other circulatory diseases is often overlooked. Improving functionality through practitioner assisted stretching of muscular and nervous system associated diseases can be achieved, giving these people a better lifestyle.
