Getting that spring back in your step
Everything you need to know about increasing mobility through stretch. Write a quick synopsis of your post here to give people an idea of what it’s about.
Then we will begin to talk about how to get back to better health through the implementation of Osteopathy. There are many techniques we can utilize, but it also comes down to how much you’re willing to commit to a change in lifestyle.

We recommend a break every hour, or even every 30 minutes if you’re able to. Think of it as training your body to stay in shape and keep moving.
2 Basic Types of Stretches:
- Static: a stretch to lengthen a stiff muscle by taking it passively to its end range for a prolonged period of time.
- Dynamic: a stretch used to prime a muscle for activity or sport by using momentum to take it throughout its full range of motion.
There are many other stretch techniques, all of which have their specific benefits, but for our purposes here, we’ll talk about static and dynamic stretching.
Erin Tout of Osteobalance, Ballarat, suggests that if someone is experiencing pain then an Osteopath can help. “We organize the first steps which then lead to a healthier and more fulfilling life”. She also states that it important to stick to your active plan and not to fall back into old habits.
