How often do you encounter a patient with ‘tightness’ in parts of their musculoskeletal system and encourage stretching to ‘loosen’ it and improve flexibility and range of motion? How often do we ourselves practise yoga to stretch and improve our own flexibility? We use these terms glibly, because, well, everyone knows what ‘stretching’ means, right? And the answer to that question, is actually, probably not! This article is Part 1 of two, which will really get you thinking about what exactly you mean when you use the word ‘stretch’ and will allow you to do the right kind of stretches for the best result depending on the desired outcome. This article has been extracted from chapter 2 of the author’s book Yoga and Biomechanics: Stretching Redefined.
