Assisted and passive stretching is incredible important in improving ones range of motion. It can be very easy to forget to stretch on a regular basis and for some muscle groups, stretching can actually be quite difficult to do on your own. With assisted stretching, you are able to get a more thorough stretch while remaining completely relaxed. Each stretch should be held for approximately 30 seconds with constant communication with the therapist as to when and where you feel the stretch. Flexibility can also be measured so that goals can be set when stretching and to quantify the improvement in range of motion.
