Our muscles tend to shrink with age due to atrophy from continuous inactivity that can lead to injury. As with many physical characteristics, we are predisposed with poor flexibility. This can be improved over time when stretching is practiced regularly. We incorporate and perform stretches in 3 separate ways: static (active and passive), dynamic and a more specialized effective technique called proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF). Stretching will improve posture, reduce low back pain and increase blood flow and oxygen to the body’s tissues.
