Stretch and Joint Mobility Therapy, with Annette Fletcher: Body flexibility training to reduce joint stiffness, Stretching instruction
Manufacturer: World Dance New York
The Stretch and Joint Mobility Therapy program covers 3 areas of stretch and flexibility practice: Joint mobility exercises, Dynamic stretch and Traditional stretch. Joint Mobility Therapy is the pursuit of joint health through movement. Age and a sedentary lifestyle cause our joints to grow stiffer. Our range of motion shrinks, and as a result of our inactivity our muscles lose strength and tone. This process may be slow and imperceptible, but unless we take preventative measures, joint and muscle deterioration will make mobility more and more difficult. That is why it is important to know and use the correct therapeutic stretches and joint mobility exercises that can stave off and even reverse joint stiffness and chronic muscle weakness. What causes joint stiffness? Our bones are linked together with connective tissue called joint cartilage. Cartilage does not contain blood vessels. It stays healthy and supple when lubricated with synovial fluid, and the only thing that can increase synovial fluid is the pumping action generated by movement. As we become older and less mobile our joint cartilage starts to degrade. Annette Fletcher's Joint Mobility program offers gentle therapeutic stretches that will reduce joint stiffness and ease you into the habit of fitness movement - even if you are currently completely inactive. With regular use these refreshing and relaxing exercises will maintain the health of your joints. Even if you are a physically fit and active person, chan...
