• Increase and maintain complete range of motion of the joint.
  • Relieve muscle soreness. Light exercise promotes a better supply of blood and oxygen to the muscles than complete rest.
  • Helps improve capacity for activity. Stretched muscles require less energy for completion of movement.
  • Assists in decreasing unnecessary neuromuscular tension, promoting general body relaxation, and reducing emotional stress
  • Relieves muscle-joint stiffness associated with the aging process.
  • Increased musculotendinous extensibility.
  • Elongate the fascia. Fascia provides the binding together muscle support system. Elasticity varies between individuals and is a major reason some individuals experience slower progress in flexibility attainment.
  • Helps prevent joint sprains, muscle strains or including preventing re-injury to previous join and muscle trauma
  • Major part of the pre-activity warm-up increasing tissue temperature by an increased metabolic rate.
  • Part of a warm-down process increase blood flow to the fatigued area, eliminate toxic waste products from the cells, reduce soreness, muscle relaxation and additional flexibility improvement.
  • Helps provide greater potentials of physical and athletic skills.
  • Reduction of tightness that may contribute to pain, spams, or cramping.
  • Provides an important adjunct toward recovery during the rehabilitation process.
