Benefits to Stretching

Stretching gets a bit of a bad reputation because it isn't the most exciting activity. However, it is one of the most important. Stretch-n-Grow, Winston/Salem, NC has a post with some of the many benefits to stretching.
  • Sitting down all day watching the teacher write on the board can cause your youngster's muscles to become tense. When it comes time to take a break for lunch, the immediate change in activity can cause injury. Stretching is a great way to prepare them for play-time!
  • Whether it's playing sports or simply improving an exercise skill, if your muscles are stretched before you exercise then they are ready to take higher leaps and longer strides as soon as your child gets going.
  • Nobody likes to feel muscle pain the next day, and thankfully stretching can help! Stretching after jumping or running around the playground promotes the flow of oxygen and blood to your child's muscles, helping them to grow strong and recover faster.
  • Stretching throughout the day is a great way to promote better posture thanks to relaxed shoulder and back muscles. This can be a great benefit for tall children who have a tendency to keep their head down to speak with friends.
