Exercise Therapy is Different than Just Exercises Because it is Actually Designed as a Series of Movements that are "Treatment Based" to Help You with a Specific Condition or Dysfunction.
Foam rolling increases blood flow which aids in the delivery of oxygen and other nutrients to your muscles as well as;
1. help you increase your range of motion
because it helps the parasympathetic nervous system to relax the muscles and tendons you are rolling. As these tissues relax, the fibers move from a contracted state to an elongated state which helps to increase the range of motion around the joint, muscles pliability and improved body awareness.
2. help increase blood flowd optimizing motion.
Foam rolling increases blood flow to the tissues you are working on as well as help with the repair and increased blood flow needed to enhance the delivery of vital nutrients to your muscle cells. If you have an injury or are sore after a workout, foam rolling can help encourage the removal of inflammatory waste products, flushing these tissues with fresh nutrients and circulating out toxins. It is especially beneficial for fascial, tendons, and ligaments, which have relatively little blood flow under normal circumstances.
3. help with pain reduction
If you have pain due to stiffness and or soft tissue restrictions, foam rolling can provide the stimulus your muscles need to relax which helps to effectively ease the pain experience.
Stretching that is targeted to specific muscles and or groups of muscles can help you in the following ways;
Decrease your risk of injuries
Help your joints move through their full range of motion
Increase muscle blood flow
Enable your muscles to work most effectively
Improve your ability to do daily activities
Targeted strengthening and or functional exercises are designed to help you with a specific condition from postural dysfunction, injury recovery and or improvement of your activities of daily living. When you understand exactly how to apply certain movements that can help you train your body for optimal functioning you give yourself the best opportunity for recovery, healing and living your best life.
