About the Book
times in your life have you had to stop doing something
because of tight muscles, stiff joints, or pain?
How long did you live with the discomfort, thinking
it would eventually go away, before you did something
and comfortable in your body should be normal, not occasional.
You should be able to play your sports, lift your children
and grandchildren, garden with ease, and work without
pain. A little deliberate stretching, done daily, will
go a long way in preventing a build-up of stress and
tension. Ignoring the early warning signs leads to greater
discomfort and dis-ease.
This book is designed for
busy people who don't have time to stretch, for those
who have difficulty stretching, and for those who don't
know how to stretch. It
is a guide that shows the reader how to stretch different
areas of the body with easy-to-follow instructions.
The book offers options for stretching the same muscle
two, three or four different ways, enabling those people
who might have a specific physical limitation or injury
to stretch without further injuring themselves.
The book is divided into 2 parts.
First, the stretches are grouped into regions, i.e.,
head/neck, back, feet and legs, with different ways
to stretch each area. The second half of the book groups
the exercises into 4-minute routines. This allows people
on busy schedules to take a "mini break" to
loosen joints, relax muscles and reduce any buildup
of tension. The 4-minute routines also help specifically
stretch one area of concern, such as neck and shoulders,
or combination areas of the body, like those involved
with office work, that are prone to stress and tightness.
This book has evolved from
years of revised patient handouts showing different
stretches for different problems.
It is presented in the most direct and understandable
approach possible, giving the reader no excuse for
not stretching. Its an easy-to-understand source-book
for chiropractors and other healthcare providers to
give to their patients. Any healthcare provider can
demonstrate these stretches which specifically assist
with injury prevention and improved range-of-motion.
