Therapeutic Stretching

Therapeutic Stretching is a maneuver designed to elongate shortened soft tissue structures and thereby increase flexibility. It involves placing body parts for short (seconds) or long (minutes) periods of time in a position of elongation of muscle fibers, tendons, ligaments, neural fibers, and other soft tissues. This stretching is intended to keep the soft tissue supple and improve joint range of motion.
