The Importance of Stretching

How often do you stretch?

Daily stretching is an often overlooked habit that is important for your health and well-being. acac Medical Director, Dr. Greg Degnan, shares four benefits of a regular stretching practice:

  1. You will be less likely to fall.
  2. You will decrease your chance of both traumatic and overuse injuries.
  3. Stretching is an excellent stress reliever!
  4. Regular stretching helps you achieve better form and full range of motion in your other exercises.
