Have you ever wished that you were more flexible? There is no need to worry because you are not alone! Although, it is common for people to wish that they were more flexible but they do not practice to achieve their wish. If you feel stiffness or tightness and can not seem to put your shoes on in the morning without some serious effort, then flexibility training is exactly what you need! Luckily for you, Park Physical Therapy in Massapequa treats patients who are dealing with flexible issues!
Flexibility is needed to perform everyday activities with relatives ease. To get out of bed, bending down, or even sweeping the floor, we need flexibility!
Dancers are constantly asking questions such as “how can I get more flexible?” “how do i get into the splits?” and “what are the best ways to stretch?” In the dancing world, there are many myths about how to get more flexible, but many of these ways can actually become very dangerous. Also, keep in mind that even if you are not a dancer, flexibility is still vital!
Understand your flexibility needs by:
Determine what is holding you back
Pay attention to what you eat and ensure that you are fueling with nutrition
Include both the positive and negative motions when stretching
Flexibility tends to deteriorate with ages, due to a sedentary lifestyle. Staying active and stretching regularly will help prevent this loss of mobility and allow the person to stay independent as age goes on.
