resistance stretch

Resistance stretching is relatively new to the spotlight, having come into prominence as an integral part of US Olympic training programs. Perhaps this occurrence was given rise because modern lifestyles have led us to value efficiency and in this respect, resistance stretching is a king. At Holmes Chiropractic we believe that both flexibility and strength are integral to well-being and longevity of the body. With resistance stretching, you can build both simultaneously while doing more mundane activities such as watching television. We call that healthy multi-tasking. 

The benefits of resistance stretching: 

  • Contributes to spinal balance
  • Increases muscle power production
  • Improves flexibility and thus, preserves range of motion
  • Improves joint mechanics
  • Reduces joint stress and pain
  • Increases core stability

Resistance stretching is counter-intuitive: it relies on the idea that a muscle can be simultaneously shortened and lengthened. However, it can be done with the right attention to detail: exercises such as resisted neck twists, core development stretching, partner-resisted upper back and hamstring stretches are easy to learn and have a lasting benefit. Furthermore, the importance of both stretching and exercise is not found in the intensity but the regularity. We want to help you learn to truly appreciate the value of stretching so that you will keep yourself accountable as you progress with your health plan.
