A Cat, stretching

Why stretching is important for health

“I don’t need to stretch, I’m not doing exercise.”

Even if you are not planning on performing aerobic activity, it’s really good for our bodies to stretch every day.

Stretching helps to keep our muscles flexible, strong and healthy.

When our muscles are flexible, we have a better range of motion in our joints.

When we don’t stretch, our muscles can shorten and become tight. Then, when we call on our muscles to work, they are more less able to help, putting us at risk for joint pain and muscle damage.
