Importance of Stretching:

It is good practice to perform the general warm-up before you stretch. It is not a good idea to attempt to stretch before your muscles are warm (something which the general warm-up accomplishes).

Warming up can do more than just loosen stiff muscles; when done properly, it can actually improve performance. On the other hand, an improper warm-up, or no warm-up at all, can increase your risk of injury from engaging in athletic activities.

If you stretch properly, you should not be sore the day after you have stretched.  If you are, then it may be an indication that you are overstretching and that you need to go easier on your muscles by reducing the intensity of some (or all) of the stretches you perform. Cold stretches (without any warm-up) are not recommended as it's an easy way to "overstretch".

During a stretch (even when you stretch properly) you may feel some amount of discomfort. The difficulty is being able to discern when it is too much. If you feel pain then you should ease up immediately and discontinue the stretch. You should feel the tension in your muscle, and perhaps even light, gradual "pins and needles", but if it becomes sudden, sharp, or uncomfortable, then you are overdoing it.

Once the general warm-up has been completed, the muscles are warmer and more elastic. Immediately following your general warm-up, you can engage in some slow, relaxed, static stretching. The Piri-Stretcher® will target the ilusive piriformis muscles helping give immediate relief to pain caused by Piriformis Syndrome allowing you to get back to a pain free life.  Order Today!
