If you suffer from chronic pain, stiff ligaments, tight muscles, or frequent injuries, Christopher Bissett may prescribe stretching and strengthening exercises on top of any joint adjustments or other treatments you may need.
These exercises can play a vital role in helping you regain control of your body, improve your range of motion, and enjoy a more pain-free lifestyle. Here's a look at some of the remarkable ways stretching and strengthening exercises can boost your quality of life, along with some specific examples of exercises Bissett might recommend.
The Value of Stretching and Strengthening Your Body
Exercise, in general, has shown some important benefits for individuals struggling with injuries, chronic pain, and other musculoskeletal problems. For instance, aerobic exercise enhances blood circulation and fluid drainage, which can help control swelling and feed more healing oxygen to the tissues.
Stretching and strengthening exercises promise some special benefits of their own. Stretches can release pent-up muscle tension and limber up the tissues to ease muscle spasms, making the everyday motion more comfortable, and reduce your injury risk. Strengthening also reduces injury risk by granting extra stability to the key muscle groups that maintain your posture, symmetry, and balance.
