The Benefits of Stretching and Why Assisted Stretching is Effective with iFlex

Trained Physical Therapist helping a patient stretch

Regardless of your activity level, there are many benefits of stretching. However, stretching on your own may not be the most effective method. You may not be following proper form or holding tension long enough to reap the full benefits. 

Assisted stretching can maximize the benefits of your stretching sessions and help you achieve your health and wellness goals sooner.

Benefits of Stretching

There are many different kinds of stretches, including  calf stretches, hamstring stretches, quadriceps stretches, hip flexor stretches, iliotibial band stretches, knee-to-chest stretches, shoulder stretches, and neck stretches. Stretching comes with a long list of benefits and is a great way to improve your health. 

Improved Flexibility and Performance

Stretching helps improve flexibility and range of motion in your joints. This may lead to improved performance in physical activities, decrease the risk of injuries, support joint movement, increase muscle blood flow, enable more effective muscle use, and improve your ability to do daily activities.

Assisted stretching allows you to maximize these benefits of stretching while doing so safely and more effectively. A certified stretch therapist can guide you through specific movements that activate your muscles and increase your range of motion and flexibility more than you would be able to on your own.


Why Try Assisted Stretching?

When stretching is done improperly, it can do more harm than good. This is where iFlex Stretch Studios comes into play. Assisted stretching allows you to get additional support from trained professionals who can ensure each stretch is safe and effective.

Increased Range of Motion

Assisted stretching helps offer more resistance to stretching sessions , which has been proven to be more effective. Repeatedly doing so will eventually increase your range of motion and flexibility. Additionally, at iFlex Stretch Studios, our stretch therapists can apply kinesio-taping to offer additional support to any problem areas.

Focusing on Key Areas

Our stretch therapists perform a flexibility assessment at the beginning and end of each session to determine areas of tension and track progress. This assessment helps them focus on the areas of your body that need the most attention and help you achieve your health and wellness goals sooner. We are dedicated to providing you with personalized care each time you come to one of our stretching franchises.

Communication and Cost Effectiveness

Another benefit of assisted stretching is the communication surrounding your stretch session. Our stretch therapists will explain which muscles they are activating and help you identify a comfortable range of resistance. This helps you better understand how your body should feel so you can confidently continue to achieve your wellness goals. 

Visiting a stretch gym is also often more cost-effective than visiting a typical chiropractor and can help relieve not only physical stress but mental stress. And as your range of motion and flexibility increase, your risk of injury decreases which could save you hospital bills in the future.
