Meeting client needs with assisted stretching

Posted by PHS Chiropractic on Tuesday, November 15, 2022

Stretching is good. It can decrease stress, reduce pain, and boost energy. Regular stretching can also lower the risk of injury, improve balance, and increase flexibility. The drawback? Getting at those tough-to-reach spots isn't easy. That's where assisted stretching can be helpful. Certified stretch therapists are trained to manually guide muscles into places and positions that you can't reach by yourself. Adding assisted stretching to chiropractic care can help to improve the mobility of the spine, muscles, and nerves making it easier for chiropractors to treat the areas that need help. 

What are the benefits of assisted stretching and how can you incorporate
this modality into your practice?

For many people, daily life has become sedentary and it is doing far more damage than most people know. Choosing ergonomic furniture for both the doctor and patient helps to ensure that the spine has the support and positioning needed to work in comfort and with better posture during the day.
