Pain treatment

The causes of pain are often complicated. Different causes can affect each other and form a vicious circle, making pain conditions difficult to resolve. The stretch therapist will use a unique stretching technique to relax the myofascia of the muscular system through passive stretching combined with a press or twist technique. The treatment will improve flexibility, reduce tightness and relieve painful and fatigued muscles.

 

About Stretching

  • Stretching does not only target the muscles, but the myofascia that surrounds and connects the muscles

  • Stretching Targets each joint specifically and looks at stretching within different angles 

  • The direction and types of stretches will depend on the range of motion of each joint

          

Ballistic Stretching

Stretching the muscles whilst incorporating a light bouncing movement to improve range of motion.

Dynamic Stretching

Stretching the muscles within a controlled movement up to limit of the range of movement of each joint, to improve range of motion and flexibility.

Active Stretching

Stretching the muscles in a static posture with the counter movement and contraction of other muscles, and does not utilize any assistive devices.

Static Stretching
