Keeping Limber and The Benefits Of Stretching Your Back and Shoulders

Obviously, tight muscles don’t function as they should. That’s why it’s extremely important to maintain a routine of stretching your back and shoulders.

Shoulder stretching is vital to keeping your upper body strong and giving you proper posture as well. And the back, of course, is a very injury-prone area of the body.

By stretching it on a regular basis you create suppleness in your spinal column, which can go a long way toward helping you avoid injuries during exercise.

The Right Tool For The Job

Medi-Dyne offers the StretchRite®, which is great for not only stretching your back and shoulders but the rest of your body as well. This extremely useful tool is not only comfortable and extremely effective, but it’s also fun to use.
