Benefits of Balance & Flexibility Training:
Balance is skill that typically declines with age. However, even among younger people, those with excellent balance perform better in their favorite activities and are at a lower risk for accidents and injury. Preserving balance grows more essential the older one gets as it is in many ways a “use it or lose it” type skill. Since it is a skill, you can improve it through exercise.
Other benefits include:
- Improved posture which leads to an improved appearance
- Grace and ease of motion
- Being less prone to accidents and injuries
- Relieved stress
- Decreased pain in many cases
- Improved sports, work or activity performance
Whether you are a runner, weekend warrior, recreational tennis player, high school, college or professional athlete, your chances of being injured are high. Whether you need to rehab from an injury or prevent it from happening in the first place, stretching and improving flexibility can help!
