Are you feeling like you lack flexibility? Feel tight? Have trouble getting into certain positions? If you answered yes to any of these, you may benefit greatly from stretch therapy. Stretching has been shown to greatly improve range of motion and can even help prevent injury in some cases (Woods et al., 2007). Stretching is vital for all populations of people from the elite athlete to our medical population. At SSMI we offer one-on-one stretch therapy sessions at our office that will help with any of the issues you may be having. If you feel that you would benefit from this call our office at (480) 664-4615 for an initial consult and evaluation.
