7 Amazing Results You Get from Stretching

Did you know stretching is just as important as regular exercise? It’s a healthy habit that really pays off – just check out some of the incredible benefits it provides.

  1.  It increases your range of motion and flexibility
    These are the most obvious benefits of stretching and usually the reasons why people begin a regular stretching program. When you stretch, your range of motion is enhanced which means your body will need less energy to make the same movements. Stretching also produces more flexible joints. This reduces the risk of injury from workouts and daily activities.
  2.  It can prevent injury
    From acute injuries like a pulled hamstring to overuse injuries such as plantar fasciitis and IT band syndrome, being flexible can aid in the prevention of a variety of injuries. You’ll also benefit from stretching even if you’ve had an injury. Stretching delivers a greater nutrient supply to your muscles. This speeds up the recovery time for muscle and joint injuries.
  3.  It improves your posture
    Stretching corrects bad posture by keeping muscles loose and lengthening tight muscles. By stretching your shoulders, lower back, and chest muscles, you can keep your spine in better alignment. Aches and pains are also relieved during this process, resulting in a decreased desire to slouch.
  4.  It provides stress relief
    By loosening tight muscles, stretching helps your muscles relax and enhances blood flow. It also promotes the release of endorphins so you feel a sense of calm. Stretch in the morning to kick-start your day. Or, stretch before bedtime to experience a more restful sleep.
  5.  It enhances your athletic performance
    Regular stretching relaxes your muscles, making them more effective when you exercise or play sports. You’ll also have an advantage over athletes with a limited range of motion – you’ll be able to kick higher, reach further, pick up the ball easier, and more.
  6.  It boosts your energy levels
    Feeling yourself dozing off at the office in the late afternoon? Revitalize your energy levels by standing up and stretching. When you get tired, your muscles tighten which makes you feel even more sluggish. Moving your body and doing a few stretches will help awaken your mind and body so you can tackle the rest of your workday.
  7.  It reduces soreness
    Besides giving your muscles time to relax, stretching before and after you exercise increases blood flow which sends more nutrients to your muscles. This minimizes soreness after an intense workout.

We are Open

Our focus is to keep you, and our RTT family of healthcare professionals and support staff, safe and healthy. In order to do this, we have made a number of very important changes to our usual way of doing business. Until the pandemic is over the following will be our “new normal”:

Certain practitioners will be back to work during this time and others will not be working in order to limit the amount of staff in the clinic. Please be patient if your therapist is not available right away. Please check our online booking platform to see when your favourite practitioner will be returning.

  • Verbal and written COVID-19 pre-screening questions will be done as a part of your appointment booking and at the time of your treatment.
  • Patients are asked to bring their own personal disposable mask or cloth face covering. Please wear them into the clinic and face-masks will be mandatory to get your treatments. All of our staff will be wearing them as well.
  • Patients are asked to come alone as our waiting rooms will have limited seating.
  • All patients will be required to wash their hands before and after treatment.
  • Please arrive a couple of minutes before your treatment time.
  • We have enhanced our sanitization/ disinfection protocols with COVID-19 rated cleaning products. All contact surfaces will be cleaned after use.
  • As of August 1st, 2020, we will require ALL patients to have an email address and credit card on file in order to minimize the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus. Your information will be uploaded to a secure, encrypted JaneApp account. We will continue to directly bill your insurance company. Any outstanding balance will be charged to the card on your account. Your receipts will be emailed to you.

Please know we are doing everything possible to provide you with a safe, relaxing, and problem-free experience. We look forward to seeing you soon.  If you have any questions, please email us at admin@royaltreatmenttherapeutics.com or by phone at 604-437-7777.
