You might have rolled your eyes, but your high school PE teacher wasn’t wrong when they insisted on stretching before class. It is important to stretch before rehab exercises so you can move your body safely and get on the road to recovery quickly. When you attend sports physiotherapy and chiropractic in Croydon, our practitioners can talk to you about the benefits of stretching and how best to incorporate stretches into your exercise rehabilitation plan.
Stretching before your rehab exercises improves your static flexibility, what most people know as ‘range of motion’. Improving your static flexibility will help you with recovery, and improve your performance when doing your exercises for rehabilitation and health.
