We could all use improved range of motion. Your body will feel healthier and stronger when your range of motion is solid yet smooth. How do you improve your range of motion? How to improve your range of motion depends on your personal health. Each person of varying age and body type should adjust their stretching and exercise regime accordingly. To find out your personal needs for your specific range of motion you should consult with a professional. The Denver Massage Therapists at Peace of Mind Massage are trained in modalities that include Therapeutic Stretching, Active Isolated Release, and Sports Massage techniques. Our goal is to assist in not only the loosening of joints but in the toning and strengthening of the muscles.
To improve your range of motion you must not only work on the joint but the surrounding and attaching tendons, ligaments, and muscles are just as important. Ligaments attach bone to bone and tendons attach muscle to bone. Tendinitis is a condition that causes inflammation of the tendon. This condition is brought on by repetitive strain. Tendinitis is commonly seen in basketball players, volleyball players, swimmers, weight lifters, and rock climbers. Tendinitis is not restricted to athletes alone. Tendinitis can be caused by any repetitive motion. Musicians who use their hands to play their instruments often suffer with tendinitis and carpel tunnel syndrome.
Massage Therapy will help improve your range of motion. With assisted stretching techniques you’ll be able to take your flexibility beyond what you could do on your own. Active Isolated or resistance stretching will help you tone and strengthen weak muscles. Massage Therapy is like a work out for your muscles that you get to lay down and relax through. Enjoy improved muscle tone and strength without getting off the massage table. You may be asked to use minimal strength and resistance during Active Isolated Release. The results from this type of work are instantaneous with obvious improved range of motion through out the session.
Massage Therapy will improve your range of motion but you must continue to stretch on your own, on a daily basis for the best long term results. The Denver Massage Therapists at Peace of Mind will not only stretch you during your massage but will teach you stretches to do at home. We often give handouts with directions that our clients can take home for reference. We also believe in teaching home care that includes education on hot/cold therapy. There are things you can do to improve your range of motion that will allow you to do the things you love like playing an instrument or playing a sport.
Its important for the elderly to improve their range of motion. As our bodies become stiffer while we age we must work harder to maintain a healthy range of motion.
