When was the last time you stretched before or after a workout? Stretching can prevent injury by increasing your muscle range of motion. However, stretching after a workout has the most benefit. Once the muscles are warm, they are less likely to tear or cause further injury. If you're feeling sore, massage can help by reducing or eliminating muscle pain. Having a regular massage appointment can help you maintain your range of motion and make you less prone to injury. In addition to improving your range of motion, massage can also help by:
· reducing muscle tension
· lowering joint pain
