Why is Stretching with ProStretch Better than Using a Curb?

Why is Stretching with ProStretch Better than Using a Curb?

Why ProStretch? 

Physical therapists, trainers, and athletes at all levels have been using ProStretch products for over 25 years. If you or your patients are suffering, using ProStretch can provide long term healing for plantar fasciitis, tight hamstrings, shin splints, tight calf muscles or calf strains, Achilles tendonitis, weak knees, weak ankles, heel spurs, and Sever's disease. Here is a list of 6 ways why stretching using a ProStretch is better than curb stretching. 

 

1.  The Right Degree of Stretch 

The unique combination of the proprietary heel rest and the rocker bottom of ProStretch put you in complete control of your stretching progression. Stretching with the ProStretch allows you to start at your own pace and increase or decrease the degree of your stretch as needed. ProStretch enables you to "progress your stretch" as you become stronger and more flexible and always leaves you in control - making ProStretch perfect for everyday stretching or injury rehabilitation.

 

2. Complete Control 

The curb provides one angle as does a slant board. Sure, you can lean into it or pull back but the range is still very limited. And hanging off a curb or on a step certainly doesn't give you much control (not too mention "holding still" at just the correct angle can be difficult). ProStretch puts you in control throughout your stretch with much less chance of falling.

 

3.  Ergonomically Correct Positioning 

ProStretch automatically holds your foot in the optimal position for providing a biomechanically accurate and efficient stretch. You can confidently stretch knowing that your foot is in the perfect position to stretch five or more muscles!

 

4.  Stretches Multiple Muscles

Hamstrings, Gastroc, Soleus, Achilles tendon, Plantar fascia and toes - you can stretch all of these muscles with ProStretch. Curb stretching or using a slant board can't come close to delivering on this list.

 

5.  Proven Effective and Trusted 

For over 25 years, ProStretch has been the #1 choice of professional athletes, trainers, and physical therapists worldwide. 

 

6.  Available When You Need It

Sometimes a curb or a step just isn't available. ProStretch is lightweight, making it easy to keep in your gym bag or take along wherever you go. You can always have your ProStretch handy!
