Maximizie your mobility as a senior.
Our bodies undergo many changes as we age, including the natural loss of flexibility and mobility. This can lead to aches, pains, poor posture, and an increased risk of falls, which can significantly impact an elderly individual’s quality of life. Whether it’s getting out of bed, going for a walk, or being able to play with grandkids, there are countless instances where seniors want to feel at their best. However, there may be more effective solutions than traditional methods of muscle relief, such as massage therapy. Assisted stretching is quickly becoming recognized as a better alternative for seniors. In this post, we’ll explore the benefits of assisted stretching for seniors, how it can help to improve flexibility, reduce pain, and compare it to massage therapy.
Main reasons why seniors choose assisted stretching.
Assisted stretching, in which a professional practitioner guides you through a series of stretches while helping to hold the stretch in a comfortable position, can help seniors in several ways. For example, it can reduce low back pain and arthritis caused by spinal stenosis and osteoarthritis. It can also reduce the risk of falls by improving the strength of hip joints and the flexibility of the quadriceps, hamstrings, and lower back. Additionally, assisted stretching can improve posture by correcting a forward head posture and rounded upper back and shoulders. Finally, regular stretching sessions can increase energy levels by promoting proper circulation of blood and nutrients throughout the body.
Now, let’s compare assisted stretching to massage therapy.
Massages are known for their ability to reduce stress and promote relaxation. They work by calming down your nervous system, which can become overstimulated by the demands and responsibilities of everyday life. Massages can also help soothe sore and stiff muscles, reduce swelling and scarring from injuries, and alleviate feelings of stress, anxiety, and fatigue.
On the other hand, stretching helps improve circulation, boost nerve health, make movement easier, and increase flexibility. It’s like a workout for your muscles that helps keep them supple and in good shape. When you stretch regularly, you’ll notice an improvement in your range of motion and flexibility.
When combined, stretching and massages can have even more significant effects. By stretching daily and targeting specific areas, you can help your muscles become more flexible, making movement easier. Regular massages, in turn, can help keep your muscles relaxed, reduce pain or stiffness, and enhance the benefits of stretching.
Both techniques are effective and can help improve your health and well-being as you age. By combining them, you can reap both benefits and feel better physically and mentally. Avoiding massage is not a cause for concern unless you have preexisting medical conditions or unhealed wounds.
