Other than preventing injury what are some other Benefits of Stretching? Stretching can benefit you in many ways. It can provide a relaxing sensation and reduce tension and muscle spasms. Also, stretching can help relieve the feeling of stiffness.
Stretching can help reduce or resolve pain. Many issues related to pain in the body are because you have tight muscles. For example, tight hamstrings can lead to low back pain while standing.
Reducing muscle soreness related to stress injuries from overdoing an exercise or activity is also a Benefit of Stretching. Soreness can be caused from increased muscle tension and stretching is a great way to relieve tension.
