Assisted Stretching Could Help With Aches and Pains

What you did then, can really end up hurting you now.

Years of running, lifting weights, playing sports and working out can take their toll.

However, there is a way to work out the kinks: assisted stretching.

Paul Calloway will do anything to make his bad back feel better.

He stretches whenever and wherever he can, but sometimes, a simple stretch isn't enough.

So, he uses a trainer.

It’s our bodies’ reaction to not push past the pain. However, with a therapist's help, you can get more pain relief than you'd get on your own.

There are two different forms of assisted stretching:

  • Passive: With this form, the therapist does all the work. It’s good for people with very limited movement, like those who have just had surgery.

  • Active: With this form, a person stretches a group of muscles and the therapist gives you that extra push.
